Can I offer promotions and discounts on my KDP book?
Yes, you can offer promotions and discounts on your KDP book. In fact, Amazon offers a variety of ways to promote your book and increase sales.
KDP Select is a program that allows you to make your book available for free for a limited time. This can be a great way to attract new readers and generate buzz for your book. When you enroll in KDP Select, you can offer your book for free for up to five days each month. You can also offer your book for free as part of a promotion, such as a holiday sale or a launch promotion.
When you offer your book for free, you will earn royalties on any sales that are made during the free promotion period. You will also earn royalties on any sales that are made after the free promotion period, as long as your book is still enrolled in KDP Select.
