What is K-D-P? “Kindle Direct Publishing” (formerly Createspace) allows you to self-publish eBooks, paperbacks, and hardcover books for free. KDP gives you direct access to your book on Amazon, and allows you to create a product detail page as well. It also gives you the option to expand your book’s availability on a global scale, making it more accessible for readers around the world.
You’re finally done writing your book, now what? You wish to publish to KDP, but you don’t know how to start? LET ME HELP YOU. I’ve been publishing to KDP for over 15 years. I offer one-on-one consultation, formatting with professional InDesign software and use Adobe Photoshop for my book cover designs.
INCLUDED WITH THIS GIG – KDP Upload Training! Don’t go through the hassle of trying to figure out and navigate the KDP dashboard on your own – I offer a one-on-one, 1-hour video conference with screen share where we navigate the dashboard together, upload your files, fill in the meta data and publish your book. My most popular training course with questions answered without the headaches or hassle, so you can get started on your publishing journey today!
