If your book is primarily text and created as .doc(x), or another supported file, you can go directly to Kindle Direct Publishing to publish.
If your book includes a lot of images, tables, charts, or complex layouts, or you want to include audio or video clips, you can download Kindle Textbook Creator for free to easily format and prepare your book for publishing.
Determine if you’ll use an existing image or design a custom cover. Use Kindle Cover Creator to explore templates or use CreateSpace professional services to work with a designer to create a custom cover.
Once your eBook files and cover have been uploaded, determine your global distribution rights and set a list price for your eBook. Use KDP Pricing Support to analyze past sales data for groups of similar books to determine your target list price.
Once you’ve published your eBook, it will appear on global Amazon websites within 24-48 hours. Choose from optional marketing services, such as KDP Select, to promote your eBook and manage and measure your global sales.
