BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Amazon announced KDP Kids, designed to help children's book authors prepare, publish, and promote both illustrated and chapter books in Kindle Stores worldwide. Children's book authors can use the new Kindle Kids' Book Creator tool to create illustrated children's books that take advantage of Kindle features like text pop-ups. Once the book is ready, authors can upload it to KDP, and use KDP's category, age and grade range filters to help millions of Amazon customers choose the right books for their kids.

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.
