If your manuscript needs proofreading and/or copy editing, this is priced at £9.99 per 1000 words by our team over at A1 Proofreading UK.
Here at A1 Book Publishing UK we publish books for authors who may not possess the combination of skills to do so for themselves, or may simply not have the time to devote to what can be a time consuming editorial process.
Along with our sister company A1 Proofreading UK, we provide all the services to help authors self-publish books and eBooks, from proofreading your manuscript, book covers, book design and eBook conversion, to book distribution and marketing.
Firstly, we are not affiliated with Amazon or any of its subsidiaries.
We will produce both Kindle and printed editions of your book. It will be available to more than 300 million readers worldwide through Amazon.
Authors receive 70% (eBook) and 60% (paperback edition) royalties of the retail price of their books direct from Amazon, who keep the remaining % as their profit.
As a part of our services, 2 complimentary copies of the printed book will be sent to your address upon publication.
We will provide precise and easy to follow marketing instructions that will guarantee your book achieves the maximum possible sales.
The fee includes all elements of publication and involves taking a book from a base position right through to a high quality, professional publication.
Both editions (eBook and printed edition) will be available through Amazon’s book stores all over the world. One of the huge advantages of Amazon publication on KDP AMAZON is that books are published there indefinitely.
We aim to complete publication within approximately four weeks and have a very formulaic and systematic approach to book production.
We will register the account for you on Amazon and complete all of the details, including the description of the book which will appear on the book’s sales page on Amazon, placing the book in the most suitable sales genres, and using the most appropriate search keywords to optimise success.
When the book is published, you will be given full control over your account. Neither we nor Amazon have any claim to the copyright in your work. You own all of the rights at all times.
We offer the experience, book publishing skills and personal service needed for your fiction or non-fiction book. Our Amazon book publishing service is second-to-none, whether it's physical copies or Kindle book upload using Amazon Kindle direct publishing.
Do you have any specific questions for us? If so, call our UK based number 0121 314 1328 or use our contact form.
Use the button below to upload your manuscript. You'll be taken to our sister site, A1 Proofreading UK where your manuscript will begin its publishing journey.
You'll receive a confirmation message that we've received your file. An invoice will be emailed to you for the cost of the work requested. Once payment has been received, work on your manuscript will begin almost immediately.
What is the potential market for my book?
There are over ten million Kindle users worldwide with the numbers increasing daily. But the market for your book goes far beyond that because Kindle provides apps so that your book can be read on virtually any eBook device such as iPads and Android devices.
Will my book be available internationally?
Yes, absolutely. Your book will be available to all the countries of the world where Amazon have a presence, including the UK, Europe, and the USA which has the biggest number of Kindle owners.
Do you publish all books submitted to you?
Yes we do. We are not here to judge or censor your work. We accept all genres, fiction and non-fiction.
Does my book need an ISBN?
It is not necessary to buy an ISBN because Amazon will provide an ISBN for the book themselves.
How long does it take to publish my book to Amazon’s Kindle?
Unless there are unforeseen problems we can publish a book in approximately four weeks.
Is there a length requirement for my book?
No. Kindle is a very forgiving medium where length is not of any great importance. For example, fiction of novella length and short stories are proving very popular on Kindle. This is in contrast to printed books where these genres were rarely published at all in recent years.
How do you set the price of my book?
Because Kindle is owned by amazon.com, a US company, the retail price is set initially in US Dollars then automatically converted to the currency of the country in which it is on sale. Thus, in the UK it will appear for sale in British Pounds, in Europe, the Euro and so on. One thing you must remember is that eBooks are priced lower than conventional printed books. There are conventional ‘industry standard’ prices for different types of books to which we tend to adhere. But another advantage of Kindle is that the price of the book can be changed very quickly at any time depending on sales.
How much do I get paid for each book sold?
Kindle has a somewhat strange royalty commission policy. Books which are priced below $2.99 receive 35% royalty payment. Books between $2.99 and $9.99 receive 70% and books from $10.00 to $20.00 revert to 35%. In addition, Kindle charges the author for electronic delivery based on the file size. For books such as novels which are primarily text-based, this is usually a matter of pennies but it increases for books with, for example, many colour pictures.
How do I get paid for book sales?
Since 27.10.17 Amazon KDP has stopped sending cheques. There is an option to be paid by direct bank transfer. Authors can set their bank details at any time after publication within their 'My Account' section.
How is my book marketed?
Amazon has dedicated marketing tools and is very good at publicising and promoting your book to its millions of readers.
What happens after my book is published?
We set up a special separate account for you on Amazon’s Kindle with your own username and password. This provides access to your account over which you will have full control. You can check sales as frequently as you want and change any element of the book when required, even down to the content and cover design!
Can you publish a printed copy of my book?
We are aware that many readers still prefer a physical, printed book. In order to cater for this sector of the market, we will also publish a conventional printed edition of the book through Kindle Direct Publishing. This allows you to have printed copies of your book on sale on Amazon without holding any stock at all. They are literally printed on demand. This edition will be available alongside the Kindle edition on Amazon to maximise the book’s chances of success. As a part of our services two copies of the printed edition will be sent to your address upon publication.
