Kindle DTP, Now Kindle Direct Publishing, Extends 70% Royalty Option To Canada

Amazon’s Kindle Digital Text Platform (DTP) is no more, at least not by that name. Starting today, the self-publishing program will be known as Kindle Direct Publishing.

With Kindle Direct Publishing, anyone can self-publish books on the Kindle Store, free of charge.

Since June 2010, authors can participate in a 70 percent royalty program and make books available for purchase on Kindle devices and Kindle apps for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, PC, Mac, Blackberry, and Android devices.

Amazon today announced that it is extending that 70 percent royalty option to include books sold to Canadian customers. It was previously available only in the United States and the UK.
