There is one great secret to being a good and successful author. This secret has to do with having a good knowledge of the genre you write. You need to know the expectations of readers of that genre, the plot styles of successful books in that genre, and cover design that appeals more to readers of the genre.

To be able to get a first hand knowledge of these important factors, find out who are the best selling authors in that genre on Amazon! Get and read at least five books by these authors. Learn their approach to all the factors listed earlier and then create your own writing style from what you learned from these authors books.

If you do this well, your writing will be good, top notch, and meet the expectations of readers of the genre and hence you will get sales and good following early enough.

As a Nigerian writer/author who wants to publish books through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, you must write books that appeals to global audience and not local or Nigerian audience! This is because the target markets out there on Amazon are predominantly the Americans, Europeans, and Asians.
Re: Publish Your Books Through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing And Make Money by Stevenbright(m): 7:08am On Jun 04
If you are just starting a publishing career, I advice you take it slowly and stage by stage too. There is really no good reason to go and produce paperbacks of your first book for either local distribution or international distribution through Amazon KDP/Creatspace. Doing that will overwhelm you and can lead to frustration if things did not favour you.

It is therefore important to first publish it as an eBook and if it picks up well in sales, you can then plan and produce a print version of it (paperback) later.

Your eBook cover design should meet the following standards:

1. It should be good and professional.
2. Its choice of colors should speak volume.
3. It should be genre specific.

The best way to handle the third point, is to browse your genre on Amazon and see what the best selling book's covers look like and then use those ideas to design your own eBook's cover.
