This week, our theme has been fast and easy Kindle publishing. I hope these articles inspire you to WRITE, and to PUBLISH.
Check out any articles you missed.
Start by thinking about what YOU could write for the Kindle. Look at the image on the right hand side. They’re book categories, and they’ll get you started thinking about what you could write. You’ll notice that there are fiction categories (erotica, romance, mystery etc), as well as nonfiction categories (business and investing, health, computers, education etc.)
Writing in series can make all the difference in the world to your sales. With just a single title, whether fiction or nonfiction, your book will get lost, and readers won’t find it. Therefore, you need to decide that you will write in series, rather than single titles.
In self-publishing, formatting seems to terrify more writers than anything else. You need to convert your MS Word doc to various formats, so that you can sell on the Kindle book store, the Apple bookstore, and all the rest. Scary right?
Nothing could be further from the truth. If you don’t want to handle formatting and uploading your ebooks to the online book stores, others will do it for you.
I’ve received questions from writers who would love to get into self-publishing, but for various reasons, have NO time to write. Self-publishing seems complex and confusing; they don’t even know how to get started. Let’s look at how you can use any spare minutes you have, and turn them into Kindle cash.
Your beta readers are people who read your stories before they’re published, and give you their honest opinions. They tell you how your short story, novel, or nonfiction ebook affected them.
If you’re writing a short story, you want their opinion on your STORY — where are the dull bits? What didn’t make sense? What didn’t they understand? What was off about the pacing? Was there sufficient conflict?
I developed the methods in “Fast and Easy Kindle Publisher: Turn Free Stuff Into Kindle Cash” to help my students to create their own multiple income streams, in the easiest ways possible.
These methods are perfect for newbies: you don’t even need a website.
If you’re a pro, you can add these methods to your business plans going forward, just as I’m doing. Forget creating multiple websites, content marketing with hundreds of articles, and the competitive pressures of pushing others’ products as an affiliate… Use the power of Amazon (and other online ebook stores like the Barnes & Noble Nook store.)
