Re: Kindle Formatting Software

I used the one that Dave Guindon released (can't remember it's name off the top of my head) but to be honest the vast majority of my formatting is done in Open Office now, and have never encountered...

Re: Kindle Authors: Which Free Offer is Most Enticing?

I would think the guide is the best idea, but it depends if you are targeting complete newbies or not. Kindle guides can be found everywhere (from rehashed PLR, to inexpensive books on the Kindle...

Re: Kindle Publishing - What to Do & What NOT to do.

Yup, agreed, and that's what I was trying to say - you can market a turd but it will do you no favours in the long run. Start with a quality product and you'll get sales regardless - the amount of...

Re: Kindle Publishing - What to Do & What NOT to do.

I think it boils down to providing quality over everything else. Nice cover, good subject, well-written. That's all you need. Linking to mailing lists etc are good, but without a quality book...

Re: Voice recognition software

I can also vouch for the voice recognition software built into Windows 7 - it works great for me, and I've never felt the need to try Dragon out.

Re: Is it worth placing affiliate links in Amazon Ebooks?

It's not worth risking your Kindle publishing account just to try and get a few affiliate sales. However, you can put your affiliate links on a page on your website, and then link to that page in...

Re: Need newbie Kindle advice and help choosing Kindle Newbie WSO

I consider writing a book the hardest part of the process, so if all you have left to do is formatting and publishing to Amazon's Kindle store, then you really don't need a WSO - there is plenty of...

Re: My Strategy to Sell More Kindle Fiction

Interesting strategy, thanks for posting! I'd never considered prematurely stopping a KDP promotion, but I'm definitely going to try this with my next book and a couple of old ones that haven't done...

Re: Making $10 a day

$10 is really easy to make on a daily basis starting right now, you only have to do actual work rather than rely on affiliate sales, so check Fiverr or the classifieds here for jobs you can do.

Re: Top Selling Kindle Ebook Topics?

Re: kindle pricing

I have experimented a lot with 99c, $1.49, $1.99, $2.99, $4.99, $9.99 price points (all under 'unknown' author names. I found that there was a negligible difference between 99c and $1.49/1.99 in...

Re: Kindle? Where to begin?

If you already have books titled and written, then you are almost good to go. You can find instructions on the Amazon website (and YouTube, and tons of other sources via Google) about how to format...

Re: So, I now published my book on Kindle!

Well done for getting your first book published!

It is quite a unique subject, and 'how to' books work well with YouTube promotion. Make a short video (or get someone on Fiverr to do it) that...

Re: Kindle Matchbook - A New Opportunity From Those Nice Kindle People!

Re: Ebook file size: How big is too big?

No, I don't think 2.4MB is too large. Most of the books I have published have been less than 1MB, but to be honest if you're including 50 photos then 2.4MB is quite small in my opinion! From a user...

Re: Selling an ebook via Kindle or Facebook.. Please help.

Publishing on Kindle takes the headache out of fulfilling orders yourself and dealing with customer service, and if you sell at $2.99+ then you get 70% of the sales. As well as traffic you get from...

Re: Launching a kindle e-book with $800 marketing budget

$800 is a lot to spend promoting your first book in my opinion. If you're set on spending money to push it then I would revommend Rob Howard's KD Promo app to push your book to many promo sites to...
