Congratulations! How to Self-Publish Your Book For Free on CreateSpace & Amazon Kindle is Live!

Congratulations Thomas!

Your book “How to Self-Publish Your Book For Free on CreateSpace & Amazon Kindle” is live in the Kindle Store and has been enrolled in KDP Select. It is available* for readers to purchase here. If you have republished your book, your changes are now live.

KDP Select allows you to enjoy benefits, such as earning a share of a monthly fund when readers borrow your book from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and a promotional opportunity to offer your book as free to readers for up to 5 days to expand your reach.

We want to take this opportunity to remind you of your commitment to making your book exclusive to Amazon in digital format during each 90-day enrollment period. If your book is determined to be in violation of this requirement, it may be removed from KDP Select, but will remain available for sale in the Kindle Store.

You can check on the current month’s KDP Select fund by visiting your Bookshelf.

Also, you can find your book’s number of borrows in real time through your Month-to-Date Unit Sales report here.

Now that your KDP Select-enrolled book is live, you can manage its free promotion days in your Bookshelf by clicking the “Manage Promotions” link from the “Actions” menu or from the “Edit book details” page.

Your book’s enrollment in KDP Select lasts for 90 days. For your convenience, your book’s enrollment will be automatically renewed for another 90 days, unless you cancel automatic renewal by un-checking “Automatically renew this book’s enrollment in KDP Select for another 90 days” box under “Enrollment Details” of your book before your book’s current enrollment term expires.
