Kindle Edition Only – for Amazon (book cover/editing not included) – $195.00​

Get your book listed on Amazon’s most heavily promoted and bestselling reading device – the Kindle. Your book will be available for purchase on Kindle devices and Kindle apps for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, PC, Mac, Blackberry, and Android-based devices. This means any person with this free app on one of these devices can instantly purchase and download your book, resulting in an immediate sale. Additional formats, beyond just paperback and hardback, mean the possibility for more exposure and sales of your book.

What are the benefits of my book being available on Amazon Kindle?

1. It allows your book to be available in another format and available on a device heavily promoted by Amazon that has already been purchased by millions of readers. This opens your book up to potential buyers by having your book available in the Kindle store and as an instant download.

2. Sales obtained thru the Kindle Store are all profit for the author (minus Amazon’s share, of course) when we set the account up under your name – meaning you don’t share anything with PENDIUM. Payments will be directly deposited into your account by Amazon.

3. A Kindle sale offers an inexpensive way for new authors to attract new readers. In most cases, if a reader buys your eBook and enjoys it, they may actually purchase the paperback or hardback edition of your title as well – if there is one.

How do I start the process of my book being available on Kindle?

First, having your book published in paperback or hardback is not required. We do, however, recommend a book cover (front only will suffice) and your best work submitted for the Kindle (meaning your work should be professionally edited – either by your own editor or PENDIUM). In order for a book to be readable on the Kindle, your MSWord manuscript has to be formatted and converted specifically for the Kindle so that it displays properly on the reading device. This can be a complex process if you’re not familiar with ePublishing. PENDIUM will handle everything required by Amazon.com for books that DO NOT contain the following: columns / tables / borders / bulleted lists / numerous graphics / footnotes / endnotes. These formatting tools typically don’t display well.

Author Advantage (editing not included) – $295.00​

Is your book published elsewhere, and you’re unhappy? Looking for a better self-publishing deal? Not pleased receiving a small royalty on your book sales (15 to 35%)? Tired of being overcharged for copies of your own book when you need them for book signings? It’s time you make the switch.​

If you have a book cover already designed (front/back/spine), and your manuscript can be formatted to our specs, then join PENDIUM authors who are receiving 100% of their royalties on all bookstore sales. Our authors pay only the print cost when they need copies, and receive full distribution for their title through Ingram – the world’s largest wholesale distributor of book products. This makes your book available at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, BooksaMillion.com, and over 25,000 other book venues. Brick and mortar bookstores will also be able to order your title if requested by a customer.

There’s no catch and no hidden cost, just fair self-publishing.
