FREE KINDLE BOOK CASE STUDY
Scroll to the bottom of this post for more info
Do you enjoy writing? Have you ever had dreams of becoming a published author? Well now you have no excuses.
Amazon’s KDP programme makes it easy for anyone to get their words put together and put out there for the world to see and enjoy.
I have used this programme to publish a few short stories and I have a brand new one coming out in a few days time. If I can do it, then I know that anyone can.
So if you are still sitting on the fence about whether to do this or not, here are 5 great reasons why you should just go ahead, take the plunge and get that book published for kindle.
#1 – It’s Free To Publish Your Book
You do not have to spend a penny in order to get your book published. Amazon’s KDP programme is free to use. Once you have your book formatted correctly, you just register with Amazon’s programme, fill in data they require and upload your book.
You can create your own book cover for free too. You just need to use your computer’s imaging tool or an online imaging programme.
For my first attempts at book publishing, I created my own book covers using OpenOffice software. These were very basic but they did the job.
I am ready to move to the next level with my books. I want them to look more professional so it is time to pay someone who has the skills for this type of thing. I may go back and get new covers for my original books as great covers can really help to push sales. But when you are starting out and you are not sure, then free is the way to go.
#2 – It’s Fun To Be a Published Author
If you like writing then the process of getting your book into the Amazon store will be fun. I love taking a look at my books on Amazon or seeing it appear in the list of other books that customers have purchased.
It is also a wonderful experience to get that first book review and be awarded those gold stars by someone who has actually taken the time to download your book and read it. This can also be a great motivator to get working on the next book.
#3 – You Can Write About Anything
If you are worried about finding the perfect topic to write about, don’t make the job much harder than it needs to be. Writing should be a pleasurable experience so write about whatever you like.
This is supposed to be fun, not a chore. You can choose to write fiction, non-fiction, a book for adults, a book for children, you could even choose to write a story specifically for your pet. Why not? I wrote about Reality TV Shows just because I felt like it.
If you have an idea, just start writing and see where it takes you.
#4 – You Can Practice Your Writing Skills
That popular saying “Practice makes perfect” is so true. If you allow yourself to try things over and over again, you are sure to see an improvement. This goes for writing too.
For some people, writing comes very naturally and for others, it can take a long time to get the ideas that are milling about in your head organised and written out in a coherent way.
The only solution is to work at it. You have to get into the habit of writing often. You may find this task easier if you write about something that you are passionate about or that you are knowledgeable about. The words may be able to flow a lot quicker for you.
The good thing about writing is that there is no one watching you with a timer or stopwatch. You can work at your own pace, writing a couple hundred words, here, there and everywhere. With a little bit of practice everyday you will see a great improvement over time.
#5 – You Can Make Money Writing Books for Kindle
I like writing and being able to make money from creating short stories is an added bonus for me. I never expected to ever have the opportunity to do something like this. The idea of approaching a traditional publishing company was never somthing on my radar.
I would have continued writing and my stories would have remained in my notebooks or typed up on my computer. Now I have the opportunity to share my work with others and make a little cash too.
If you are looking for a way to make money online then writing kindle books can be a great option. It has certainly become another passive income stream for me but I am taking the slowly slowly approach.
There are others out there who are creating content at a terrific pace and they are making massive profits. I write and publish at my own speed and with no pressure. If the money comes, it comes and I will certainly appreciate it
You have to find a system that works for you so that you can achieve your goals successfully. I look forward to seeing what results I get from doing things my own way.
The task of getting a book published is so much easier than it used to be. We all have the opportunity of becoming authors so why not give it a go.
If you enjoy writing or you have a few notebooks and journals filled with stories, you should definitely start thinking about getting your content published. It’s fun to do and receiving an Amazon cheque is the icing on the cake.
