Do you know that since Amazon KDP launched it's print beta platform for paperback (print) book publishing in September of 2016, you can now publish your book both as an eBook (Kindle) and Paperback (print) book through KDP instead of going to CreateSpace for paperback publishing.

This means that you can now get all your sales report and payment processing done exclusively through KDP.

The characters and settings ( names and locations) in your novels should be universal and not peculiar to Nigeria alone, so that the book will appeal to a larger audience.

What is Kindle Edition Normalized Pages (KENP) read?: This is the second way you can earn royalties from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, the first being direct sales.

If your book enrolled in KDP select program is downloaded by a reader who has a KindleUnlimited Subscription, you get paid per page for the number of pages of the book read by the reader.

The three most important skills set that an independent author needs are:
1. Formatting skills
2. Graphics design skills.
3. Marketing skills.

Although Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is the largest digital publishing platform, there are still some other good ones. They are as follows:

1. Draft2Digital

You can creatively use social media like Facebook and Twitter to increase the visibility of your author brand and sales.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:15am On Aug 20, 2017
Do not make the mistake of using Amazon's "Free days Promotion" to give your first eBook away for free until you have published other books (back list) that can benefit from such promotion.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:18am On Aug 22, 2017
Have faith in your books! This implies that you need to write books you can buy if it were written by another author. This is because readers only buy books they want or need.

Hence, your books should meet the (Relaxation, Entertainment, Information, and Technical) needs of your target audience.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:27am On Aug 24, 2017
Some sure ways to enhance your independent publishing experience are:

1. Connecting with and sharing ideas with other authors to get to understand what they are doing right that you can learn from.

2. Joining author Facebook groups and hence socialize with other self-published authors.

3. Join book specific social media platforms like Goodreads and Kboard.

Just like the writing of a book has to be good and creative and the Cover persuasive, its presentation (Formatting) has to be good and professional too.

While publishing your first, and even second books is a great achievement, it is note worthy that the more books you publish, the better the prospect of your sales. So, write and publish as many books as possible.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:37am On Sep 01, 2017
Amazon Return Policy: It will interest you to know that Amazon's return policy allows a reader (buyer) to return a book within seven days of purchasing it if there is a good reason for doing that and be refunded his/her money.

Although this can be abused and hence can be disadvantageous for an author, it is still not a big problem if you know what to watch out for. The following are some of the important things to do to minimize returns of your book dales:

1. Ensure it's content is as described by it's title and blurb.
2. Ensure it is properly formatted to guarantee readers smooth and enjoyable read.
3. ensure it's list price is reasonable with respect to its content value.
4. Ensure it is listed in appropriate categories.

Someone asked me how he can be a "Best Selling" Author and this was my answer:

Write a great book, professionally edit it, professionally format it, design a professional cover for it, and promote it using AMS or any other paid book marketing services.

Guess what! If you can do those things, you will surely be glad you did.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:18am On Sep 03, 2017
Do you know that Kindle Unlimited Normalized Pages (KENP) read can substantially increase your royalties if you enrol your books in the Kindle Select program.

In fact, it appears to work best for fiction writers than their nonfiction counterparts.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:19am On Sep 04, 2017
Writing is an hobby, and that is why it is interesting to know that one can get financial empowerment doing what he/she enjoys and loves doing. And that is where Self-publishing comes in!
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 7:31am On Sep 05, 2017
The joy of being a self-published author is that you are also your own publisher and marketer. Hence, with some bits of learning, action, and persistence; things can really pick up for you.
