There's a link at the bottom of every page on amazon.com called "Self-publish with us." Click on it.

Oh *this* should be a literary gem.

Religious tract or political screed? Toss a coin. But I'll bet solid money it won't be anything anyone wants to read.

You cannot self-publish a permanently free book on Amazon; only traditional publishers can do that. The minimum list price is $0.99. (However, if you are part of KDP Select, you can make your book free for something like 5 days in a 90-day period.)

Good point. Amazon isn't in the business of providing free storage, advertising and distribution without a chance to make some money while doing it.

OP would be just as easily served by offering this no-doubt masterpiece on a blog or website they run. Loads of those that are free or nearly so.

Get about the same level of interest too. :0

By the way, if your book is part of KDP Select, it has to be exclusive to Amazon; you cannot offer the ebook anywhere else, including your own website. (However, you can sell a paper version of the book elsewhere.)
