Why You Should Self-publish Your Book on Amazon

A discussion of why you should self-publish your book on Amazon.

Amazon is the 800-pound gorilla in the corner.

During a portion of our self-publishing career, Melanie and I published her books on Amazon Kindle eBook, CreateSpace POD paperback (now KDP), Smashwords eBook for distribution to Apple and Kobo and directly on Barnes & Noble to receive our revenue faster. Fully 98% of our revenue came from Amazon Kindle eBook sales. Later we moved all of our publications to KDP to optimize revenue.

If you self-publish anywhere, your priority must be Amazon.
