We believe that if you write a book, you should be able to publish it. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) empowers you to do just that—it's an easy-to-use self-publishing platform that lets anyone who has a story publish it. Whether it's a book you wrote years ago that never got picked up or a short story you wrote last month and want to share with readers, KDP empowers writers to bring their work to readers in Amazon Kindle Stores around the world. You can also publish and distribute your book in print with CreateSpace—it's free and offers similar benefits to KDP like worldwide distribution and higher royalties.

Poppy Anderson wrote stories at home but it took years before she worked up the courage to let the public read them - she started publishing with KDP and became a best-selling author. See Poppy's story.
