It is very easy to publish an eBook with Amazon Kindle Publishing. Below you’ll find the steps and a link. However, the hardest part for most is coming up with a the material. Some people write about something they know about others hire writers to write on a particular subject such as a biography. A kindle book doesn’t need to be very big. For example, publishing a book of poems and placing 1 poem per page might turn out pretty small for someone whom only has 25 poems. While a history professor with a lot to say might right a 400 page book on the Romans. No matter what you choose to write about once it’s finished you are ready to publish.
