on The Book Designer:
Congratulations! You’ve finished your manuscript and gotten it into a format ready to be uploaded for sale.
Now it’s time to get your ebook ready for sale.
For most of us, Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing or KDP is the first and most important retailer we submit our ebooks to. (For some, it’s the only retailer they submit to — especially at first.)
Each retailer site has its own proprietary system for uploading ebooks for sale and distribution. Each requires that you enter your financial and tax information before you can publish to their site. Below we will lay out how to log on to and manage each account. Here’s a look at how to get onto KDP and get your first book up for sale.
