Have You Ever Converted an Ebook to Sell at Amazon or as a 'Kindle' Download?

by 9 comments
I've been researching all the hoops you have to jump through to publish your ebook as a Kindle application and also how to convert it so that you can sell it at Amazon.com as a printed "book".

I personally think there is an unexploited market here that we should be using to increase the 'perceived value' of our online products and also as an additional profit stream for any ebooks I might be marketing.

Does anyone else have any interest in this?

    It's easy, don't think about it, just do it. Also you don't have to be a self publish, just have rights, public domain anyone?
    Also, don't play the 99cent game.

    The kindle market is slow however, they have not sold that many units

    I know Amazon takes a big cut of the Kindle book sales, and I think you are pretty limited in the formatting- no images, for example, way less flexibility than a PDF.

    Perhaps you would modify your kindle version to have fewer images.

    Amazon will "take a cut", but considering that they are advertising and publishing your information...

    Did I say AMAZON would be advertising and marketing your ebook that you couldn't sell to your family for $19.95!

    I said that!

      There are a lot of restrictions on coverting your books for the Kindle. It isn't just about the % that Amazon take, but nobody outside the US is allowed to add their products for sale. At the moment, only people in the US are allowed to buy a Kindle, and the rules for ownership are too restrictive.

    I'm interested in kindle conversions--I just put this project on my enormous (and growing) research list. I'd like to keep posted on this one.
