Amazon Kindle self-publishing platform goes worldwide

Bookmark and Share

As any budding author who has tried will know, it’s not easy to get published. And that’s an understatement.

It just got a bit easier in the digital realm, however, as Amazon has extended its Kindle self-publishing facility from a US only affair to a worldwide one.

Amazon’s Digital Text Platform allows those with the rights to a book to sell it on the Kindle store. The platform will also support books in German and French.

The downside is that as the author, you’ll only receive 35% of the cover price, with Amazon taking the lion’s share.

The move comes just before the Kindle DX e-book reader becomes available to buy in the UK tomorrow (though you’ll have to get it shipped from the US).
