Setting Up Your Kindle Book For Pre-order

Setting up a book for pre-order with Kindle Direct Publishing is very easy and quick, and a great way to generate sales in your book prior to its release.


You are able to schedule your book for pre-release three months prior to the release date, and this option is a simple selection when you are setting up your book for publication.

The best part? You don’t even need to have your book finished to set it up for pre-order!

You can just upload a word document and save it as part of the set-up, and come back later and upload the final manuscript!
