Amazon updates Kindle Direct Publishing, faster and more advantages

Along with the renovation of the Kindle range , which are the new Kindle Fire with nearly 9 inch HD screen and Paperwhite Kindle, Kindle is the same as always but with an electronic display that adds a higher density of pixels per inch and a backlit display, now system making it even more accessible if possible for anyone to edit and self-publish books in his shop.

The system is not new, and has been running for quite a while with pretty good results. In the U.S. for example, 27% of the Top 100 books have been published through this program. Lets skip the step of the big publishers, who often are not willing to give up just like that to open a gap to lesser-known authors, and anyone can make their work available to all Kindle ecosystem. In Spain for example highlights some authors as Bruno Nievas, who with Augmented Reality leads monopolizing the best-seller list for quite some time.

From now Kindle Direct Publishing:

  • Authors can publish in hours.
  • Completely free of charge.
  • They keep 100% of their rights.
  • They can distribute globally, not limited to a single country.
  • Publications can be programmed.

The only requirement is that Amazon takes 30% of the profits, while 70% stays with the editor, but acceptable margins when compared to traditional systems. Kindle Direct Publishing, KDP, is beginning to emerge as the biggest revolution that the publishing industry has suffered in years, just after the advent of ebooks. A revolution where anyone can edit, you can put your site at the price you want (usually usually very accessible) and skip to step a business model, the publishers of current, which has been showing signs of exhaustion for quite some time.

The author retains the same benefits as a traditional publishing medium but with wider margins and finding cases, as I mentioned before Bruno Nievas, in which these authors then make the leap to publishers of paper where they continue to parallel sales. It’s a business model that, sooner or later, I’m afraid you’ll have to start to assimilate those same big publishers, or parallel or remodeling from the same root as the selection, editing and publishing relevant.
