Self-publishing on Amazon?

If you self-publish on Amazon, is this more likely to put literary agents off? Will they consider your work previously-published, even if you only go for the Kindle option, and are therefore not physically published? I'm having trouble finding an agent, so was considering using Amazon's CreateSpace, to hopefully get a few reviews and see what people think of my work. I've read a lot online about not publishing on places such as FictionPress, because it puts agents off, knowing people have read your book for free. But if I want to find an agent, and I want to prove to them that people would (hopefully) be willing to buy my book, surely Amazon would be a good place to publish? Thanks for any thoughts/ideas.

Keep on trying for an agent or send your work yourself to publishers who accept unagented material. go to the library or on line for these sources. Some big publishing houses have contests each year for self published books. good luck!

If you publish a book with a publisher do you get a cut from every book they sell or do they buy the book off you?

It would depend on the contract, some contracts buy the rights to a book, which means (again depending on the wording) that they own it, they can make changes to it and your book may turn out very different from what you intended. It also means they can sell it.
Authors need expert legal advice.
Research is an important part of writing, and researching publishing contracts and all that go with them is even more so.

If you see a writing prompt and want to make an actual book out of it, is that wrong?

not at all! that's pretty much the point of a prompt. just make sure you aren't stealing an idea off of someone who claims they want to use an original prompt they made or has a work published. Basically, don't plagiarize and you're fine
