Publishing a Kindle Book

1) Inspired by The New York Times article about Kindle publishing (October 24, 2011), I prepared the third edition of my "Tyranny to Freedom ..."  book, submitted the manuscript and the book was on the market in less than 24 hours. It costs only $0.99, the lowest permissible price. By the way, there are no shipping charges for Kindle books, delivered via Wi-Fi.

2) Those who want to learn from my limited technical experience producing a Kindle book are invited to visit this website:

3) Will kindle devices replace traditional books? I do not think so. But many people say that I am wrong.

It is a testimony based on a diary kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

But publishing like that... I mean, wouldn't it make you like no money, like at all? I mean, after all the money goes to the publishing company, what's left for you?

Not criticizing you. I write myself, so I know the difficulty. Honestly, I would've tried for a company that puts the book in your hands.

That is cool - but as the last poster said, you don't earn any money, right?

I had a serious technical book published by Springer-Verlag, the German tech publisher. It sold about 5000 copies in English and was translated into Chinese and (don't ask me why) Polish. I got about 80 cents a copy for the English edition, and about nothing for the translated editions. If you want to make money, the odds are better with a job at McDonalds. Unless, of course, you are good at romance novels ...

With few exceptions, books are written for prestige or reasons other than money. However, having a real publisher means the book ill be actively promoted to boost sales.
