Ebook Publishing on Amazon
It's a terrible deal. Yes, you can publish your ebook for free, but then Amazon takes up to 70% of your profits!! It is impossible to make money with free ebook publishing on Amazon.
Pros
Free ebook publishing
Cons
Amazon takes most of your royalties

Extremely Competitive
Publishing a book on Amazon is an exercise in futility. They take 65% of your earnings, and you are literally competing with millions of other authors to even get your book seen on Amazon.
Pros
Can work from home.
Cons
Pays almost nothing.
