Distribution

Despite its name, self-publishing is not a DIY job. It takes real expertise to optimize your book for e-readers and create an eye-catching commercial cover — not to mention navigate all the details of writing descriptions that sell, creating a winning bio and getting your book to rank.

Our expert self-publishing coach guides you through every step of this complex process so you can successfully sell your book online. You’ll learn how to run your author dashboard to self-publish, promote, and collect royalties from your book — skills you’ll be able to use for your next book, too.

Promotion

Publishing is only half of the picture — promotion is what sells your book in a highly competitive market. We offer personal coaching that gives you the knowledge and skills you need to expand your audience and boost sales.

Our book promotion expert will provide an overview of the process as well as in-depth tips for your genre. You’ll also learn how to harness the power of reviews and other specialized marketing techniques to reach as many readers as possible.

FAQ

How do Amazon’s royalties work?

On Amazon, you set the price you want to charge customers and Amazon calculates the rate you will be paid (the royalties) after printing costs, distribution costs, download costs for e-books, and Amazon’s fees. 

Please note that the final price depends on the printing costs and you may have to set a higher price to cover printing and distribution costs.

How does Amazon’s printing work?

Amazon KDP offers print-on-demand, which means that the book is only printed as and when a customer orders it. Their offering is “cheap and cheerful”, so the print quality isn’t amazing, but it is for a low cost and therefore means you can increase your royalties or offer books at a lower price. However, please note that the quality will not be as good as the books printed by Story Terrace. There is also very little we can do about printing quality issues with Amazon (such as alignment issues or inconsistent colours on the cover).

When can people order my book?

Customers can order your book as soon as it’s live in Amazon’s system and you’ve had the approval email. However, you may wish to order a “proof copy”, which Amazon will send you, and check you’re happy with it before you tell people to start ordering. If there are any issues with the proof copy formatting, please let us know and we will look into this for you. As such, it’s better to leave 1-2 weeks after your book has been approved by Amazon before you start informing people that it’s available. Any changes will have to go through Amazon’s approval process again, and will be subject to a 24-72 turnaround by them.
