Amazon’s handheld reading device the “Kindle” revolutionized the publishing industry.
The Kindle has become a money making machine for authors and has opened up doors for writers that were sealed shut at one time. There are many authors that are capitalizing on the Kindle format by publishing small books under 20,000 words, selling them for a couple of dollars each and raking in good money. Either way, large novel or small book, publishing on Kindle is a must for any author. Empire Publishing has created several packages to meet the needs of all authors. The “budget” package is to get you published at a minimal cost. Your manuscript receives one round of mechanical formatting to meet Kindle requirements. You have a choice between a free basic cover or supplying an image of your choice. If you do not have a cover and want more than a basic cover, we will even give you $50 off any of our cover design services after purchasing this package. We convert your files to the proper formats, create your Kindle account, upload all files, and perform a test to review your ebook before publishing.
There are no limitations publishing with Kindle. Readers don’t even need to own the Kindle device to enjoy the service. Amazon has created free download apps for computers, tablets, and smartphones.

Important pricing information:
If you price your Kindle edition between $2.99 and $9.99 Amazon pays you 70% of your Kindle sales. Amazon’s commission is 20%. If you set a price outside of that range, Amazon only pays you 35% of your Kindle sales. It may not seem like much, but authors are making hundreds to thousands of dollars a month by setting a low Kindle price between $2.99 and $4.99 per book.
NOTE: Amazon requires bank account information (account and routing numbers) for royalty direct deposit along with TAX ID information for submission.
