Amazon has provided self publishers with a wonderful opportunity of making their work available for common public on the internet. People from all over the world can access your work and buy it, if they are interested. You will definitely struggle a bit at the start, but once the quality and quantity improves, you will find a lot of interested buyers. If you are already a famous person, things will be easier for you, as you just need to make your work available on the internet and people will find it.
Amazon started their programme known as ‘Kindle’ which allows you to publish your work directly. It was initially used for people interested in publishing audio books on Amazon. They had to sign up with the programme and then follow some simple steps in order to circulate their masterpiece on the internet. This turned out to be a major success, as it was quite simple and saved plenty of time for everyone. Moreover, there is not much cost involved in the process, which made it even more popular amongst the public.
However, the bloggers felt a bit undone, as they did not have this opportunity of publishing their work initially. Amazon realised the importance of this, so they introduced a new feature, which allows the users to make their blog public. You just need an account with kindle and rest of the process is self explanatory. The programme will determine a price for your blog automatically and you will not have to bother about that either. There will be a few things required for this process though, and you will have to make sure they are in place.
– RSS feed address of your blog
