Getting Started - How to Publish

To publish on Kindle, you'll need to complete your account and have a book file that has been formatted in one of the Supported Formats. For help with building your book, please see our Simplified Guide.

Once you're ready to begin, log in to your account and click the Add a new title button.

Then, complete the fields for Step 1 (Your Book) and Step 2 (Rights & Pricing) and you'll be ready to publish.

Steps 1 and 2 are split into four categories (click the links for detailed instructions):

Entering Product Details
Uploading and Previewing Book Content
Confirming Publishing Rights
Entering Pricing and Royalty Information

When you've completed all of the required information, click on the check box to confirm you have all rights necessary to publish the book file and details you've uploaded, and then click "Save and publish" to submit your book to the Kindle Store.

It usually takes approximately 12 hours for your book to be available for purchase online. If you already have a print book for sale on Amazon, we will automatically link the titles. It can take up to 48 hours after your book has been listed on Amazon for the books to become linked.
