What does it cost to self-publish a book to Amazon Kindle?

Quick answer:

There is no charge to upload your book to the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing platform.

Amazon has two Royalty Option plans:

 > 35% of the Kindle book sales price

 > 70% of the Kindle book sales price

If you choose the 70% Royalty Option, a Delivery Charge (currently, 15 cents per MB in the USA) is deducted from your royalty.

If you choose the 35% Royalty Option, there is no Delivery Charge.

You decide which is best for you, depending on the size of your book (in megabytes), and various other factors you'll read about in the links below.
There is more to it, of course... things you must consider before deciding on a price for your book... and Amazon's terms and conditions.
