AB of Seattle's Kindle for Authors Program
Adventure Books of Seattle, the 'Small Press from the Great Northwest' is making it easier for authors of all genres to have their work published.
In Great Britain and Europe, the Amazon Kindle Book Reader has not caught on as well as in the United States, where it is selling like crazy. Amazon's newest version, the Kindle DX, is due to be released in July or August and advance orders are extremely heavy.
AB has established a Digital Text Platform account with Amazon and we already have a dozen books available for the Kindle through Amazon's Kindle Book store. Sales have been steady.
One thing people sometimes forget about the Kindle is that once you buy it, you also have to load something ON it, and the Kindle holds 1,500 books. And the only place you can download books for the Kindle is at AMAZON. Most buyers of the Kindle also subscribe to Amazon's emails giving them cover pics and descriptions of all new books available. Books can be downloaded with the Kindle directly from Amazon in seconds anyplace you can use a cell.
Here at Adventure Books, we decided to relax our restrictions on genre a bit and see if any authors would be interested in possibly having their work made available for sale through Amazon. We only ask for the Kindle rights on your work. You keep all print rights, even the normal eBook rights. Kindle converts all files to their secure 'azw' format and they can be used no other place but for the Kindle.
We also think that Amazon Kindle books are a good 'testing ground' for possibly offering an author a print contract later on that book. The contract we offer for publishing your work for the Kindle is quite generous. Our service also includes normal editing, special necessary formatting, (such as creating the linkable Table of Contents) and a cover image for your book.
For full details and payments, just drop by our updated Book Submissions page at Adventure Books of Seattle.
