Dear Soon-to-be-Published Kindle Author:
If you want to become a published book author today … and have thousands of admiring readers worldwide … the surest and quickest way is to publish a Kindle e-book and sell it on Amazon.
Kindle is where it’s at in book publishing! The mainstream book publishing industry is on life support. Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley estimates sales of Kindle e-books on Amazon in 2015 will be $4.4 billion. Don’t you want to grab your share of those profits?
Here are some other facts to convince you that publishing your book as a Kindle e-book is the way to go:
- Amazon will pay you a 70% commission for most of the e-books you sell through them on Kindle. That’s a big payout compared to the paltry 6% to 8% net royalty the big print book publishers pay their authors.
- Nearly 40% of U.S. adults who read e-books own an Amazon Kindle dedicated e-reader vs. 27% who own an Apple iPad.
- Almost half of Amazon’s customers own a Kindle e-reader. Kindle owners spend $1,233 per year on Amazon on average compared to $790 per year for Amazon shoppers who do not own an e-reader or tablet.
- In 2010, about 22 million Kindle e-books were purchased on Amazon. Kindle e-books have now overtaken paperbacks as the most popular book format on Amazon. For every 100 paperbound books sold on Amazon, 143 Kindle e-books are sold.
- There are more than 5.4 million different Kindle e-book titles available on Amazon, with approximately 2,366 new Kindle e-books titles added every day – everything from children’s books and memoirs, history and humor, children’s books and graphic novels, science fiction and self-help – and many other topics.
So to answer your first question: Yes, thousands of people from all walks of life are becoming first-time authors thanks to Amazon’s easy and open-to-everyone Kindle e-book publishing system – even those who never wrote anything more than an e-mail or postcard before.
As to your second question – whether Kindle e-books sell and make their authors money, here are just a few success stories to show you the enormous sales potential awaiting your Kindle e-book ….
- Amanda Hocking could not get a publisher to publish her novel, so she self-published it as a Kindle e-book. Her out-of-pocket cost: $300. In 20 months, the book sold over 1.5 million copies, and Hocking earned $2.5 million.
- Fiction writer Cheryl Kay Tardif earned over a quarter of a million dollars from Amazon alone in 2012 and 2013. In the first 3 months of 2012 alone, her book sales were over $58,000.

One more point….
In the good old days, becoming a published book author was exceedingly difficult.
First you had to write a book proposal. Then you had to convince a literary agent to represent you. Then you had to wait month after month as your agent took your book proposal to the various publishers – usually without success.
Today, Kindle gives the average person the ability to publish their book, make it available for sale on Amazon, sell hundreds or thousands of copies, and in some cases make a significant income … without kowtowing to snobby literary agents and Manhattan publishers.
But you have to know how the system works … how to prepare your e-book … how to get it into the Kindle system … and how to publicize and promote your book for maximum sales and repeat profits.
I have sold well over a million books during my career as an author – many with traditional publishers, but now an increasing number on Kindle. And in Write and Sell Kindle E-Books for Fun and Profit, I can show you how to do the same. If you will let us.
