How much do Amazon authors make?
It depends on how many books you “sell” on Amazon and how much they are bought or “borrowed” through Kindle Unlimited services. In general, KDP gives authors 70% royalty on books priced between $2.99 and $9.99, while giving the author 35% back on books that are priced lower or higher than that range. Last year, Amazon paid self-published authors $220 million, making self-publishing seem quite lucrative a possibility for authors. Amazon’s services do allow your book to be available to millions of people online, and there are quite a few people who will search Amazon for some cheap self-published books to read. Amazon changed the way that books were being sold when they first started with unbeatable book prices compared to other retailers, and now they’ve changed how books are being published and read. With Kindles used by millions of people and Amazon still selling plenty of hard copies of books through their site, people are reading from Amazon constantly, so what better place to self-publish as an author than Amazon. There is no concrete amount that you may make as an author on here because it will depend on how good your content is usually and how many people decide to buy or borrow your book, but there are quite a few authors who have turned it into a full-time job because the pay is good enough.
