It is good you start off your independent publishing career exclusively with Amazon as it has the highest share of international eBook market (about 60%). This gives you good visibility through its Kindle Select program and hence building up following. Once you get to understand the game, you can then go wide with some of your books.

Author brand is one great thing to build as an author. You can create and maintain an author brand in the following ways:

1. Write a series book which will have a unique and professional covers. The covers for each book in the series should be closely knitted such that readers can easily identify them.

2. If you write stand alone books, make sure they are all in the same line of thought and unify them with a unique but similar covers.

What is Kindle Edition Normalized Pages (KENP) read?: This is the second way you can earn royalties from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, the first being direct sales.

If your book enrolled in KDP select program is downloaded by a reader who has a KindleUnlimited Subscription, you get paid per page for the number of pages of the book read by the reader.

As an indie author, it is more professional to publish your books in both eBook and paperback editions rather than in only eBook edition. It will encourage potential readers to have faith in your work and hence willing to try them out.

How Kindle Direct Publishing Works:

You write the manuscript, edit it, format it, and design a professional Cover for it. You then create account with KDP and publish it. You are paid Royalties on each unit sales.
There are two types of royalties 35% and 70% of the list price.
As for receiving the payment, you use Payoneer.

The main idea of writing and publishing more books is to ensure that if one doesn't sell, another will do. Hence, your sales will be constant and growing by the day.
Re: Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing Affordable Services by Stevenbright(m): 5:14pm On Jan 06
Your book Cover should be genre specific and professional, and your book content must be informative if it is nonfiction and addictive if fiction, properly edited and formatted.

An online presence offers another way to keep in touch with your readers. How are you using social media to market your book?
Re: Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing Affordable Services by Stevenbright(m): 9:11am On Jan 12
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.

With a know-how of the fundamental basics of research, niche, and marketing strategies; you will surely have a successful self-publishing career through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.
Re: Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing Affordable Services by Stevenbright(m): 7:25am On Jan 14
Never make the mistake of thinking that if you published only one book through Amazon, you are going to make a lot of dollars with. This is because if you have such mentality, you will easily see a reason to chicken out!

Rather, have it in mind that it is a game of numbers and time! Once you are able to discover the genre that gives you the best results, and you focused on it, in no time and with five or more books, you will be surprised at the outcome you will be getting.

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 a writer/Independent author, it is good to be creative. Hence, from the onset of your book idea, you have to know the target audience, genre, and target keywords/categories.

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