OFFENSES THAT CAN LEAD TO THE SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF YOUR KDP ACCOUNT
There are some things you must avoid as an independent author who publishes through Amazon so as not to get your account suspended or terminated. The following are some of these things which are all against Amazon Terms Of Service:
1. Copyright infringement: In this case, you must make sure the contents of your eBooks are original and not just what you cut and paste from the internet. At times, they might block any of your eBook which they believe has content that is widely available on the internet. But if you continue to have copyright issues with your other eBooks, they might terminate your account.
2. Use of inappropriate keywords like names of other authors to game the system.
3. If your eBooks are enrolled in the Kindle Select Program, and you arranged with some marketers that promise to increase your KENP reads, you might get into trouble. This is because such marketers creates some multiple Amazon accounts to game the system by offering KENP read services to gullible authors. Once Amazon realizes that you are having unusual numbers of pages read, they might investigate and once you are found guilty, your account will be terminated out rightly or suspended.
4. You can publish an eBook in Kindle and still do same with Draft2Digital, Lulu, or Smashwords. But make sure you do not enroll such eBook in the Kindle Select Program because if you do that, it means you are exclusive to Amazon for the 3 months enrollment period and cannot publish it anywhere else otherwise your account will be terminated.
5. Another possible offense is paying people to review your books. This may not lead to account suspension or termination but those reviews will certainly be removed once they find out and you will be warned. So, be creative and resourceful as an independent author.
Re: Training On How To Publish Ebooks Through Amazon KDP And Make Dollars by Stevenbright(m): 7:02am On Mar 24
If you receive any email from Amazon KDP stating that your publisher account have been suspended for any reason, make sure you quickly reply to the email and explain what you know about the situation in a polite manner without being defensive. In the case of copyright issues for instance, where KDP will state that they find some content in the book is freely available on the internet, you can explain to them that you own a blog or a website where you put up a small portion of its content for the sake of content marketing. You then need to provide them the URL for the blog or website. If they are convinced, you will receive a mail telling you to go confirm your right of the book in the first publishing stage and republish it again. Otherwise, they may tell you to provide more proofs or they may block the book itself. But a failure to promptly reply to KDP representative email in this case can lead to the termination of your account.

There are some important things you have to do after you edit, proofread, and format your book; before hitting the publish button to ensure a successful launch of your book. Here are some of these things:
1. Research the best fit categories for the book again.
2. Research and gather good and appropriate keywords for the book.
3. Launch the book by using promo sites that do not require review and book them to promote the book on the first few days after hitting the publish button.

As an Independent or self-published author, you are all powerful because you are not just the author of your published books but also the publisher and marketer. Hence, you are entitled to up to 70% royalty of each unit sales of your books whereas traditional published authors can not even get deals of 15-20% royalty rates.

Having backlist that is independently publishing more than one book is what makes getting better sales possible.

One of the best success strategies of independent authors is "writing to market" that is writing in a genre or subgenre that is currently selling very well and not just writing what you love to write about. To find out these genre, study Amazon "best seller" list.

Using pen names as an independent author is a good strategy, most especially as a Nigerian author who publishes through International eBook platforms.
Re: Training On How To Publish Ebooks Through Amazon KDP And Make Dollars by Stevenbright(m): 7:45am On Apr 22
As an author, it is good never to reply to reviews of your book no matter how negative you think the review. This is because a reply to any review can result to more bad reviews for the book from other readers.
Re: Training On How To Publish Ebooks Through Amazon KDP And Make Dollars by Stevenbright(m): 2:22pm On Apr 23
It is good you carry out research on Amazon best selling books and genre so that you can write to market demand and fast track your independent publishing success.
Re: Training On How To Publish Ebooks Through Amazon KDP And Make Dollars by Stevenbright(m): 2:41pm On Apr 25
Now is the time to take that bold step and launch your publishing career. This is because you can not know all you need to know about independent publishing before you finally or reluctantly take that step.

The basic required skills are Writing, and Editing. This is because if you can at least do the first editing and proofreading of your manuscript, it greatly reduces your publishing expenses. In fact, you can fully do the complete editing of your manuscript if your writing is good from the start.

So, now is the time to take the bull by the horns and fulfill your dream of becoming a published author.
