Hi,

This is what I wrote in the Q & A section just below my sales page:

Can this method become saturated?
Absolutely not!
UNLIKE "normal" books, these books are CONSUMABLE..they get used up! A normal book gets 'read' and then can be resold or loaned out etc...diminishing your market.

But puzzle books once used are not resellable and the person now needs a new one! People who buy puzzle books are...
1) Passionate about their "hobby".
2) CONSUME CONSUME CONSUME!

The niche is evergreen and will continue to be a popular buy for puzzle fans for many years to come. The words Sudoku puzzle is just as well known as Crossword puzzle...and crossword puzzles have been around for years!

sharpturn is actively in this niche, so helping saturate it by selling his Sudoku publishing model for a few extra dollars here seems counterproductive. My take anyway and sharpturn will respond as soon as he can I'm sure.
YEP! Sharing is good for Karma!
Thanks for holding the fort while I slept...(in Spain).

Thank you for this amazing review!

Well explained! That was the plan because I am one of those people who likes the idea of publishing but just does not have the patience or talent for writing. So I researched, experimented, failed, failed and failed until I eventually created this method.

A product such as this is also helpful to those already publishing and skilled in writing, etc., because it allows them a creative outlet from writing all day, when they still want to be productive but can't find the words...and the fact that it gives them an altogether new "egg" to put in their basket...well, all the better.
YES!

Also, another element that you're going to appreciate is that although you are out the cost of the product, you do not have to put out any other expenses to keep you from reaching your publishing goals...only YOU can keep you from being successful in uploading your first book. The rest is up to you.
VERY important point. YOU are in control of how successful you want to be by taking the required action.

*Just as with any good business, you need organization. So, if you are a beginner and struggle with how best to set things up, you will find Andy's folder organization very beneficial to you. (starting on page 36)
I thought it would be important to explain this because I know how "muddled" I was when I first started creating these books. Folder organization IS necessary.


Finally, pages 60-64, Andy takes you thought the Kindle process should you decide to use that as well. Again, pay attention to the note and highlighted areas.
This process takes minutes and is yet another source of income...just a different platform!

As you can see, there are some really good things to be said about this product. And for those who don't know Andy or are not familiar with his products, let me say...Andy is one of the few who I trust to deliver a product worthy of buying.
Thank you!
Andy

Re: Sudoku Book Creation Empire - High Profit Flow of Instant Monthly Cash!
Share on:

There are two (and a half) points you need to know about my review.

1. I've been addicted to Sudoku for about four years now. Next to my bed are three Sudoku books (two Dell and one Martial Arts Sudoku), because these puzzles are relaxing.
2. I received a review copy, but that doesn't influence what I say about a product. And (here's the "half" point), Andy knew I'd be totally honest in my review. (Some people send me review copies with the understanding that, if I absolutely and totally hate the product, I won't review it.)

Okay, now to the review...

Short review:
Unlike many WSOs I've seen, this course is worth the money, if you understand the Sudoku market, or are willing to explore it.

While there is a saturation point for Sudoku books published without that deeper understanding, if you find the right sub-niche in the Sudoku marketplace, you can have loyal customers buying from you for years.

And, as Andy said, this is a consumables market. That is, Sudoku enthusiasts can go through each book at a rapid pace, and need another one... and another... and another.

However, if you're buying this to casually throw together a bunch of computer-generated Sudoku puzzles -- or outsourcing the labor to someone who doesn't understand the nuances of Sudoku -- my advice is: don't bother. The opportunity in this marketplace is for quality books.

(If Sudoku fans wanted to solve random Sudoku puzzles of inconsistent quality, or puzzles they print at home, they'd go to the many free Sudoku puzzle sites -- or use an app -- themselves.)

Create good Sudoku books, and this WSO can pay for itself, day after day.

Longer review: Grab this WSO if you've been looking for a book niche that's easy for a beginning publisher, and you're serious about earning money.

If you're willing to invest time in understanding the Sudoku marketplace, and quality-check the puzzles yourself, there is a solid customer base at Amazon. Also, you can probably print these books (via POD) and find retail outlets for them near your home. With minimal promotion, these books can sell well.

This WSO is excellent and clearly explains the process of creating Sudoku books.
  • The 68-page how-to manual (with videos) is complete and explains the exact mechanics of creating and publishing one of these books. If you've never created a ready-to-publish book in the past, you can follow Andy's instructions and publish your book in a few days. And, you can do this without spending a cent.
  • The 20-page marketing covers a variety of basic (and mostly free) marketing techniques. Some are better than others for this kind of book. All are explained in enough detail for a beginner to understand and implement.
  • The "extras" include templates for the actual books (great resources if you're still not sure what goes where in these books), press releases, the full list of Andy's instructional videos, and a tutorial to publish your books in print, via CreateSpace.
You can use entirely free resources for your books. Andy listed several of the best Sudoku puzzle generators. He's already given each a "test drive" to see if it turns out good, printable puzzles. (Many free Sudoku sites aren't worth your time. Their puzzles are rubbish. Andy's recommended list is relatively reliable.)

However, from my experience, even the quality of the "good," free sites is variable.

For some kinds of Sudoku fans, that's a plus. They want lots of variety.

For others, who'll put down a book as soon as they find a puzzle that's not fun, consistency is key.

Yes, two different audiences... and that leads us to the major categories of Sudoku fanatics.
  1. First, there are people who want to start with easier puzzles and steadily progress to increasingly challenging ones. For them, each "difficult" puzzle style is something they're eager to conquer. (For this kind of Sudoku fan, see book series like the Martial Arts Sudoku books.)
  2. Then there are people who want a gentler progression. They always want to feel slightly challenged, but not too much. I think they're the largest remaining audience in this niche. For them, you'll create books that -- at the last page in the puzzle section -- include puzzles only slightly more difficult than those at the front of the book.
  3. In addition, some Sudoku enthusiasts usually look for a challenge, but -- on days when life has been challenging enough, thank you very much -- they like to have a second book with puzzles they know they can solve, quickly and easily.
Additional points you may need to know:
  • Sudoku is a logic puzzle, not a guessing game. It's like crossword puzzles, in that there's only one correct solution to each puzzle. However, Sudoku puzzle solvers do most of the work -- trial-and-error style -- in their minds. Many (including me) complete the puzzles with a pen, not a pencil. By the time we're ready to write a number in a space, we're certain it goes there.
  • Sudoku enthusiasts use different methods to solve these puzzles, and they have favorite approaches. Some prefer puzzles they can complete as a whole, focusing solely on the numbers, in sequence. Others treat that as a cursory step, but prefer to solve within the individual square clusters, or in individual lines across the entire puzzle.
  • Different software uses different logic approaches. So, the amount of time spent on each phase of the puzzle will vary. A Sudoku enthusiast who likes most of the puzzle solved by going through the numbers, 1 through 9, across the entire puzzle, may hate a puzzle that requires more square/cluster work. And vice versa. (But then there will be fans who love to mix things up a bit. Offer variety and they'll buy every book you create.)
  • Some Sudoku fans want to rush to victory, quickly solving three (or more) puzzles in a single sitting (or commute, or work break). Others like to deliberate carefully, spending an hour (or more) solving each fairly challenging puzzle.
  • Paper quality (and price) make a difference to some Sudoku fans. Decide whether you're aiming at the audience that doesn't care about the paper; they just want lots of puzzles for a low price. (Ink bleeds through the pulp pages of the $3.79 Dell books, but they include around 200 puzzles.) Others want better paper, and they'll pay more for that. (The Martial Arts Sudoku books have better paper and "real" book covers, and I cheerfully pay $7.95 for about 300 puzzles.)
So, to succeed in the Sudoku marketplace, it's best to understand and target one audience (or one, per brand/pen name) and produce what they want. Since these books are consumables, all you need are your "thousand true fans," and a steady supply of new books to keep them happy.

Sure, you'll see five or ten different Sudoku magazines at the grocery store, pharmacy, or newsstand. Anyone can pick them up, rather than waiting for Amazon to deliver. Those stores are not your competition.

As someone who browses Sudoku magazines weekly, I can assure you that those stores can't hope to stock "something for everyone" among Sudoku enthusiasts. I haven't been able to find new books that I want, for months. (I stock up when I find some I like.)

The "trendy" phase of Sudoku has come and gone. (According to Google Trends, "sudoku" peaked in 2006.) However, plenty of loyal Sudoku fans are still buying these books, and you can achieve success in this niche.

The bottom line is: In this course, Andy gives you all the nuts-and-bolts instructions you'll need to create and publish successful Sudoku books. And, you don't need to spend a cent in production costs.

As a WSO, this Sudoku book creation course provides incredible value. It's far better than most courses you'll find here. And, even if you're already a Sudoku pro, Andy's advice (which resources to use, how to structure your books, etc.) will save you so much time, anything under $50 is a bargain for this course.

If you're someone who flits from one shiny thing to another, casually trying moneymaking schemes to see which works with minimal effort... this isn't for you. Sure, you can turn out a bunch of Sudoku books, easily -- or even outsource the work -- but they won't attract the loyal customers you need in the Sudoku marketplace.

On the other hand, if you like solving puzzles and you're looking for a book niche to commit to, and you're ready to spend time understanding the pros & cons of different styles of Sudoku, these books could be your golden ticket.

For people serious about making money, and focusing on one niche until they succeed, this WSO is a very smart investment.

1) Read the Solve Tips at the beginning of the book
2) Get to know the sums that only have 1 or 2 possible solutions... (like 4can only be a 1 and a 3 in some order...11 over 4 squares can only be 1, 2, 3, 5 in some order...)...

Think there's a WSO in that? How To Solve Kakuro Puzzles?....ummmmm....big NOPE

Hey if you are wondering if this rambling has a point, IT DOES...I hate Sudoku...Just HATE it...I have ZERO interest in doing Sudoku puzzles BUT...I'm working on creating TWO Sudoku puzzle books already because I know others LOVE them! (one's gonna be a "Kid's Sudoku").

I live in Asia and have never experienced in book publishing with Amazon. I'm wondering how Amazon will pay to someone like me with this method. I've heard that they can only pay by gift card or something. Can you please clarify?

Let me answer your question.

I am based in Singapore and have been publishing on Amazon (paperback and kindle books) for exactly one year now. All payments of royalties will be made to your US bank account. This is not a big issue as I have learnt over the months.

There are ways you can have accounts in US banks without too much difficulties.

Hello,

You don't need any software apart from an imaging tool such as Paint.net, (which is free to download). Of course you need a word processor such as Open Office or Microsoft Word.

Have tried 3 time to purchase this with my MC as I do NOT want to use PayPal, but it won't let me. Would appreciate advice to proceed. Not a really good introduction to this site, I might add.

Hello,

I am not sure how this would work.

In the FAQ you say:

How much money will I have to spend to start making money?
Zero Dollars, Nada, Zip, Zilch! All you need is a willingness to learn and put what you learn into practice.


Then one of the reviewers wrote:

"The main emphasis is on print books but there is also a section on how to offer digital books which broadens the scope further."

How would I get books printed for Zero Dollars?

And what sense would it make to have it as a digital book, if you can't enter anything?

I am tempted to buy the system, however, first I would need some clarification about the abovementioned.

Thanks

Dan

I bought the book and can answer your first question. Print books are free to have printed through CreateSpace and sold through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and a few other outlets.

You can also have Kindle digital books but I'm not sure what you mean about "not being able to enter". People can print out the kindle puzzles. Sudoku people will buy both. The emphasis of this WSO is about printed books however.

Do I have a choice on paper quality with createspace?

Thanks for the responses in advance.

Dan,

So sorry for the late reply. I have had major internet issues for nearly 2 weeks now and so have been offline.

I see someone else has already answered the question for me.
Basically printing with Createspace is totally free. You just follow the instructions, upload your book and that is it. As mentioned the books will also be available via many other store outlets too.

Regarding the Kindle versions. I breifly explain how you can create a PDF version of your puzzle books for customers to download and print. Having said that I would focu more on the print books because that is where you will get most of your sales.

Andy

For others, who'll put down a book as soon as they find a puzzle that's not fun, consistency is key.

Yes, two different audiences... and that leads us to the major categories of Sudoku fanatics.

  1. Then there are people who want a gentler progression. They always want to feel slightly challenged, but not too much. I think they're the largest remaining audience in this niche. For them, you'll create books that -- at the last page in the puzzle section -- include puzzles only slightly more difficult than those at the front of the book.
How do I create books with slightly more difficult puzzles at the end - the software only has large break points for difficulty?

  1. In addition, some Sudoku enthusiasts usually look for a challenge, but -- on days when life has been challenging enough, thank you very much -- they like to have a second book with puzzles they know they can solve, quickly and easily.
  • Paper quality (and price) make a difference to some Sudoku fans. Decide whether you're aiming at the audience that doesn't care about the paper; they just want lots of puzzles for a low price. (Ink bleeds through the pulp pages of the $3.79 Dell books, but they include around 200 puzzles.) Others want better paper, and they'll pay more for that. (The Martial Arts Sudoku books have better paper and "real" book covers, and I cheerfully pay $7.95 for about 300 puzzles.)
Do I have a choice on paper quality with createspace?

Thanks for the responses in advance.
Fantastic!
Thanks.

"Do I have a choice on paper quality with createspace?"

As far as I know there are no options for the quality of paper in Createspace. However the quality is pretty good compared to other companies. I have had no complaints.

Hi Andy,

I purchased your course & going through it.

Just want to clarity on below.

In step 3 (page 49) says :
"10” x 8” for the 4 puzzles per page books"


but when I looked at the template ( open office 10×8) page property its width 8" & height 10".

so the page size 10 × 8 or 8×10 (width × height) ?

8 x 10

8 = Width
10 = Height

Sorry, I am not offering review copies anymore.
Yes, you should be able to use Createspace in UK. I am in Spain and have no issues with it. However, you can always contact them if you have questions regarding the UK rules.

Great course, one of the best I have ever purchased. To date I have published over 200 Sudoku books in only three months. This course is easy to implement and anyone can do it. Well worth the low price!

All of the Sudoku books seem to be pretty similar to one another. How can you make yours different than anyone else's other than varying the number of puzzles and difficulty levels in each book?

Regarding what I teach in my course the best way to "be different" or "stand out" would be creating an awesome cover and book description.

You are free to experiment and create various kinds of puzzles...ie, by varying the grid sizes...3x3, 9x9, etc. You can also generate different types of puzzles such as the infamous Samurai Sudoku puzzles. However, I do not teach this in my course and you may need to use a premium software for that.

Most of my books that I have on sale are pretty much the same types of puzzles but they sell pretty well. Some Sudoku fans want to be challenged with the "Killer Sudoku" puzzles....my books target the average Sudoku player.

The sudoku site hasn't loaded for 2 days....shows internal server error 500. Thus, I have never been able to use the suggested site for making 50 at a time, since I just picked this wso up.

Sorry about that.
It does that sometimes as it is a free resource. I just checked and it is still down but that may be because lots of people used the site at the same time. It usually resets after a while or the creator goes in and sorts it out.

Give the other generators a go for now and then try this one again in a day or so.

I guess it was a busy few days...

You are going to need image edit software to sort out the puzzle images you will be creating. Paint.net is just one of the tools you can use; I use Photoshop.

There is nothing to be worried about, the process is very simple and I explain everything. Paint.net is FREE to use by the way. You can use any free image software.

If you love Sudoku then this course will be more fun than you think. Also the fact that you also play these puzzles will help you think up new fun ideas for books.

There are two (and a half) points you need to know about my review.

1. I've been addicted to Sudoku for about four years now. Next to my bed are three Sudoku books (two Dell and one Martial Arts Sudoku), because these puzzles are relaxing.
2. I received a review copy, but that doesn't influence what I say about a product. And (here's the "half" point), Andy knew I'd be totally honest in my review. (Some people send me review copies with the understanding that, if I absolutely and totally hate the product, I won't review it.)

Okay, now to the review...

Short review:
Unlike many WSOs I've seen, this course is worth the money, if you understand the Sudoku market, or are willing to explore it.

While there is a saturation point for Sudoku books published without that deeper understanding, if you find the right sub-niche in the Sudoku marketplace, you can have loyal customers buying from you for years.

And, as Andy said, this is a consumables market. That is, Sudoku enthusiasts can go through each book at a rapid pace, and need another one... and another... and another.

However, if you're buying this to casually throw together a bunch of computer-generated Sudoku puzzles -- or outsourcing the labor to someone who doesn't understand the nuances of Sudoku -- my advice is: don't bother. The opportunity in this marketplace is for quality books.

(If Sudoku fans wanted to solve random Sudoku puzzles of inconsistent quality, or puzzles they print at home, they'd go to the many free Sudoku puzzle sites -- or use an app -- themselves.)

Create good Sudoku books, and this WSO can pay for itself, day after day.

Longer review: Grab this WSO if you've been looking for a book niche that's easy for a beginning publisher, and you're serious about earning money.

If you're willing to invest time in understanding the Sudoku marketplace, and quality-check the puzzles yourself, there is a solid customer base at Amazon. Also, you can probably print these books (via POD) and find retail outlets for them near your home. With minimal promotion, these books can sell well.

This WSO is excellent and clearly explains the process of creating Sudoku books.
  • The 68-page how-to manual (with videos) is complete and explains the exact mechanics of creating and publishing one of these books. If you've never created a ready-to-publish book in the past, you can follow Andy's instructions and publish your book in a few days. And, you can do this without spending a cent.
  • The 20-page marketing covers a variety of basic (and mostly free) marketing techniques. Some are better than others for this kind of book. All are explained in enough detail for a beginner to understand and implement.
  • The "extras" include templates for the actual books (great resources if you're still not sure what goes where in these books), press releases, the full list of Andy's instructional videos, and a tutorial to publish your books in print, via CreateSpace.
You can use entirely free resources for your books. Andy listed several of the best Sudoku puzzle generators. He's already given each a "test drive" to see if it turns out good, printable puzzles. (Many free Sudoku sites aren't worth your time. Their puzzles are rubbish. Andy's recommended list is relatively reliable.)

However, from my experience, even the quality of the "good," free sites is variable.

For some kinds of Sudoku fans, that's a plus. They want lots of variety.

For others, who'll put down a book as soon as they find a puzzle that's not fun, consistency is key.

Yes, two different audiences... and that leads us to the major categories of Sudoku fanatics.
  1. First, there are people who want to start with easier puzzles and steadily progress to increasingly challenging ones. For them, each "difficult" puzzle style is something they're eager to conquer. (For this kind of Sudoku fan, see book series like the Martial Arts Sudoku books.)
  2. Then there are people who want a gentler progression. They always want to feel slightly challenged, but not too much. I think they're the largest remaining audience in this niche. For them, you'll create books that -- at the last page in the puzzle section -- include puzzles only slightly more difficult than those at the front of the book.
  3. In addition, some Sudoku enthusiasts usually look for a challenge, but -- on days when life has been challenging enough, thank you very much -- they like to have a second book with puzzles they know they can solve, quickly and easily.
Additional points you may need to know:
  • Sudoku is a logic puzzle, not a guessing game. It's like crossword puzzles, in that there's only one correct solution to each puzzle. However, Sudoku puzzle solvers do most of the work -- trial-and-error style -- in their minds. Many (including me) complete the puzzles with a pen, not a pencil. By the time we're ready to write a number in a space, we're certain it goes there.
  • Sudoku enthusiasts use different methods to solve these puzzles, and they have favorite approaches. Some prefer puzzles they can complete as a whole, focusing solely on the numbers, in sequence. Others treat that as a cursory step, but prefer to solve within the individual square clusters, or in individual lines across the entire puzzle.
  • Different software uses different logic approaches. So, the amount of time spent on each phase of the puzzle will vary. A Sudoku enthusiast who likes most of the puzzle solved by going through the numbers, 1 through 9, across the entire puzzle, may hate a puzzle that requires more square/cluster work. And vice versa. (But then there will be fans who love to mix things up a bit. Offer variety and they'll buy every book you create.)
  • Some Sudoku fans want to rush to victory, quickly solving three (or more) puzzles in a single sitting (or commute, or work break). Others like to deliberate carefully, spending an hour (or more) solving each fairly challenging puzzle.
  • Paper quality (and price) make a difference to some Sudoku fans. Decide whether you're aiming at the audience that doesn't care about the paper; they just want lots of puzzles for a low price. (Ink bleeds through the pulp pages of the $3.79 Dell books, but they include around 200 puzzles.) Others want better paper, and they'll pay more for that. (The Martial Arts Sudoku books have better paper and "real" book covers, and I cheerfully pay $7.95 for about 300 puzzles.)
So, to succeed in the Sudoku marketplace, it's best to understand and target one audience (or one, per brand/pen name) and produce what they want. Since these books are consumables, all you need are your "thousand true fans," and a steady supply of new books to keep them happy.

Sure, you'll see five or ten different Sudoku magazines at the grocery store, pharmacy, or newsstand. Anyone can pick them up, rather than waiting for Amazon to deliver. Those stores are not your competition.

As someone who browses Sudoku magazines weekly, I can assure you that those stores can't hope to stock "something for everyone" among Sudoku enthusiasts. I haven't been able to find new books that I want, for months. (I stock up when I find some I like.)

The "trendy" phase of Sudoku has come and gone. (According to Google Trends, "sudoku" peaked in 2006.) However, plenty of loyal Sudoku fans are still buying these books, and you can achieve success in this niche.

The bottom line is: In this course, Andy gives you all the nuts-and-bolts instructions you'll need to create and publish successful Sudoku books. And, you don't need to spend a cent in production costs.

As a WSO, this Sudoku book creation course provides incredible value. It's far better than most courses you'll find here. And, even if you're already a Sudoku pro, Andy's advice (which resources to use, how to structure your books, etc.) will save you so much time, anything under $50 is a bargain for this course.

If you're someone who flits from one shiny thing to another, casually trying moneymaking schemes to see which works with minimal effort... this isn't for you. Sure, you can turn out a bunch of Sudoku books, easily -- or even outsource the work -- but they won't attract the loyal customers you need in the Sudoku marketplace.

On the other hand, if you like solving puzzles and you're looking for a book niche to commit to, and you're ready to spend time understanding the pros & cons of different styles of Sudoku, these books could be your golden ticket.

For people serious about making money, and focusing on one niche until they succeed, this WSO is a very smart investment.

Now this is a WSO review! By far, the best I have read in years. I searched for her past posts and thanked her on one just to show my gratitude.

Yes, me. But I am sure there are others as well who are seeing results. Sorry to hear that you didn't made any sale, I am not allowed to post here any proof of income but Andy's method it does work. But, as the author and others stated, to have success you need to do the following:
1. Take time and create quality books. This is not something to just pump out a dozen of books per day and wait for results. Quality books are needed here.
2. When it comes to Amazon, make a proper keyword research and come out with a good description. This is very very important as it makes the difference between being on page 10 or page 2, even on page 1. This take time and dedication also.
3. Marketing. Personally I suck when it comes to marketing but sales would be a lot better with proper or even basic marketing.

Bottom line, this is not a get rich quick scheme, far from it. But there are some money to be made with Andy's method, that's for sure. And how do I know? Like I said, because it workes for me. You won't get rich but you'll pay a few bills for sure.

By the way, I don't have any dog in this fight, I have never met Andy. I just asked him a few queations after purchasing this WSO and he was very kind to answer me every time.

Thank you very much Andy, actually a BIG thank you for sharing your courses, knowledge and expertise and experience. I have failed time and time again with the whole IM scene and I have finally found something with being a publisher that I can actually DO and that is producing awesome results and given me hope for a better future again.

I am actually ecstatic that my sudoku books are selling and selling so well, so very, very quickly within a matter of only weeks. Once again, I am very grateful to you Andy.

Both your sudoku and word search puzzle systems are amazing! You have helped me
at a time in my life when I needed it most and when I have felt let down by so many
other WSO sellers. You are truly the real deal! You have provided something of real
value and most importantly, ACTIONABLE!

1-A) paint.net does not exist, it is not a paint store
1-B) what is the imaging tool needed for in the book ?

2-A) do not have a word processor
2-B) why would the word processor be used for in the book?
