What is the Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial offer?
Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service offered by Amazon that gives you access to over a million Kindle books, magazines, and audiobooks.
With a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can read as much as you want, anytime you want, and on any device that has the Kindle app installed. The Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial offer allows you to try Kindle Unlimited for free for a period of 30 days.
During the free trial, you’ll have full access to the Kindle Unlimited library and will be able to read as much as you want without incurring any charges. If you decide to continue your subscription after the trial period ends, you’ll be charged a monthly fee. If you don’t want to continue your subscription, you can simply cancel it before the trial period ends and you won’t be charged anything.
Sounds good? I’m sure you will agree. However, what if you want to publish your own book as an author?
What is Kindle Direct Publishing?
Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is a platform for authors and publishers to self-publish their books in digital format, such as ebooks, on the Amazon Kindle store.
With KDP, authors and publishers can make their books available to a wide audience of Kindle users and earn royalties from the sale of their books.
KDP provides tools and resources to help authors and publishers format and upload their books, as well as track their sales and royalties. It is a way for authors and publishers to have more control over the publication and distribution of their books, and to reach readers around the world through the Kindle store.
How much does it cost to self-publish a book?
“Expect to spend a minimum between the ranges
of $500-$2000 USD for Self-Publishing…”
In short, you can actually self-publish a book for free. However, you may still incur cost for related services such as a book cover design and an International Standard Book Number (ISBN). Ultimately, how much you spend is dependant on a number of factors concerning your specific needs, such as which services and tools you use, and the compromises you may need to make.
