We’ve told you before about awesome young authors who’ve had books published even as young as aged 10 – like Heather, Marusa,and Siddharth.

Now a new service has launched to help more authors of all ages unleash their creativity and get published. So if you’ve written a book for children, you could be seeing your name in print sooner than you think.

Amazon has just announced KDP Kids, designed to help children’s book authors prepare, publish and promote both illustrated and chapter books in Kindle Stores worldwide.

Children’s book authors can now use Amazon’s new Kindle Kids’ Book Creator tool to easily create illustrated children’s books that take advantage of Kindle features like text pop-ups. Once the book is ready, authors can upload it to KDP in just a few simple steps, and use KDP’s category and age range filters to help readers choose the right books for their kids.

Authors can earn royalties of up to 70%, while retaining their rights and maintaining control of their content. Writers can also choose to enroll their books in KDP Select for additional royalty opportunities like the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and access to marketing tools like Kindle Countdown Deals and Free Book Promotions.

“Pictures are an essential part of storytelling for many children’s authors and Kindle now makes it easier for them to create the next generation of classics that will delight customers of all ages,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, EU Kindle. “We’re also helping customers to find the books more easily through things like age range filters.”

So if you’ve always wanted to write a children’s book, what’s stopping you? And what will your next book be called?
