In order to start earning money on Amazon Kindle by publishing ebooks you first must sign up into Amazon Kindle program (you sign in with your Amazon account by clicking on link ‘sign in’ in the upper right corner)

On Amazon Kindle you earn money per download, i.e. when someone buys and downloads your ebook. You set the price of your book yourself, you have 2 options where you can choose between:
1. 35% royalty
2. 70% royalty (this option is only available in USA, Canada, UK, Germany France, and a few other countries)
If you choose 35% royalty (what is recommended – read why) – this means when some visitor buys your ebook – you earn 35% of its price, and Amazon earns 65%.
You can write your ebooks yourself or you can even outsource the writing procces, i.e. hire someone else to write ebooks for you (you can find many writers on Freelance.com, oDesk.com, Elance.com and many similar websites).
These books don’t even have to be long books having hundreds of pages – there are books being sold and downloaded on Amazon which have only 10 or 20 pages.
These can be reports on some topics about which you are familiar. Or it can be cookbook with some tasty recipes (for example you can write cookbook with recipes for vegans, cookbook with recipes for vegetarians, cookbook with recipes for those having problems with weight, or cookbook with recipes for those having some health condition or problem, etc…), or you can write fairytales, i.e. stories for children, if you are good in writing children stories (what is very lucrative market nowadays), or you can write romance novel, or book about internet marketing, etc.
The most important thing is that your book should provide good, quality and usefull content. For, if readers leave comments on Amazon site about your ebook, and if your book gets negative comments – this will drive readers and potential buyers away from your book and they probably won’t buy it.
