© Copyright 2011 Patrice Walker All rights reserved Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) – A Discovery of a Lifetime I was wondering why it was taking me so long to write a follow-up hub to the one I published almost a year ago (1-10-10) on how to create crochet patterns. After publishing that hub, my goal was to write a hub on how to self-publish your crochet patterns, but I kept procrastinating and finding excuses not to write it.
Now I know why. I was waiting to learn about publishing for the Kindle, a discovery that took a good eight months to make. Yeah, I know. I’m a bit behind the times, but needless to say, I was really excited about getting some crochet patterns in the Kindle Store and started teaching myself as much as I could about the process.During my research, I came across one of craftdrawer’s hubs on publishing for the Kindle that included an Amazon capsule featuring a Kindle ebook on how to publish and sell ARTICLES for the Kindle.
Oh my goodness! Articles? That’s all I do is write articles. Do you mean I can actually sell my articles in Amazon’s Kindle store and make more money than I’m getting through Adsense and other revenue sharing programs that most writing sites offer? I couldn’t get over to the Kindle Store fast enough to purchase this 99-cent “booklet” by Kate Harper.This little ebook is jam packed with valuable information on publishing articles for the Kindle like “how to determine pricing, .
.. tips for avoiding unnecessary costs, and how to publish your article simply, without learning HTML coding or using conversion software.”After thoroughly studying Kate’s article, I thought I was ready to at least experiment with publishing a short document on the KDP platform. A crochet pattern would be perfect for an experiment that I would use to teach myself what I need to know to publish future documents. It would also enable me to create a step-by-step guide that others could follow to do the same.
A Step-by-Step Guide for Publishing Crochet (and Knitting) Patterns (and Anything Else for That Matter) for the Kindle In this hub, I’m going to take you through the eight steps that I took myself through in order to get my crochet pattern published in Amazon’s Kindle Store.
