Amazon Introduces Tool to Self-Publish Children’s Books on Kindle

kdpkidsAmazon has introduced a new tool for children’s book creators to self-publish their works to the Kindle Store called KDP Kids.

The Kindle Kids’ Book Creator tool is designed to help kids book authors, publishers and illustrators build both illustrated books and chapter books and then publish them to the Kindle store. The tool allows makers to build in features such as text pop-ups. Once the files are ready, an author can categorize their work by age and grade range filters.

Authors will earn royalties from Amazon on book sales. Check it out: “Authors can earn royalties of up to 70%, while keeping their rights and maintaining control of their content. Authors can also choose to enroll their books in KDP Select for additional royalty opportunities like Kindle Unlimited and the Kindle Owners’¬†Lending Library, and access to marketing tools like Kindle Countdown Deals and Free Book Promotions.”
