Updated January 02, 2018 06:37:53 New directions for publishing books are coming, but there are a lot of unanswered questions, says book publisher Kindle Self Publishing.
Key points:Kindle Self published more than 1.3 million titles in the year to March 31, and is currently publishing 1.1 million titles per monthMore than half of the books it sells are in new directionsThe publisher says it is targeting $1 billion in revenue in 2017.
The publisher has published more titles than it sold in the previous year and will soon launch the first of three new direction releases, Kindle Publishing’s head of product development, Nick Smith, said.
“We are really excited about the direction of the direction coming out in the first quarter of this year,” Mr Smith said.
He said Kindle is targeting a $1bn revenue and the first three of three planned new direction titles are in the early stages of development.
“The first three new directions we’ve been putting out have been really exciting,” he said.
Mr Smith said the first four of the new directions would be priced at $1, but the rest of the plan was yet to be determined.
Mr Smith also said the new direction books would be delivered in two different formats.””
If you have something like the book on the Kindle Self Publishing site and you can buy it for $0.99 or $1.99 then the question is, is that right for what we’re looking to do?”
Mr Smith also said the new direction books would be delivered in two different formats.
“Kindle has been releasing new titles on the New York Times bestseller list.
It’s a very popular book format for us, because it is a different way to make a book,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
There’s been a lot written about the New Book format, which is not the same format as the Kindle, but it’s a different format than other book formats that have come out before.”
You don’t have to wait a year to get a new book, and if you can get a Kindle book to your door for free, that’s really great for people.
“So we’re really excited that we’re starting this new format, and we’ll be launching those new books in two formats, one on New York and one on Amazon, later this year.”‘
A new direction’ for Kindle?
Some have been asking if there was a new direction in store for the book publisher.
Mr Cook said there was nothing new to announce at the moment.
“Our new direction will not change from our existing format, so we don’t expect any new direction to be announced in the coming months,” he wrote in an email.
“However, we’re working closely with our suppliers and customers to deliver new books that are more relevant to our customers.”
The Kindle is the fastest growing ebook format in the world, with more than two million titles sold in just three years.
The first five of the Kindle self-publishing books were released in October.
It’s not the first time Kindle has experimented with new formats, but this is the first in the book business.
“It is a new approach to publishing, so it has to work well,” Mr Cook said.
The new direction for the Kindle will launch in February.
Mr Taylor said the company is aiming to release at least two new direction book titles in each of the next four months.
“At the moment, we have two new books being released in the New Year, and that is the New New Book in February and the New Paper Book in March,” he added.
