still on conversion software.I started with mobicreator. It's free online if u search. But I have since stopped using it. I upload straight from MS Word after doing the formating. Now I only use mobi creator if I want to use images. I can complete d book on my laptop,view how it looks in kindle format before sending it to Amazon.

On covers:
don't joke with ur covers.Some books sell just because of catchy covers. if u don't know how to use an image editor go n learn. Otherwise u have to outsource online or offline. Tip - use any biz center near u.

sam ogo: Gat some few questions.
1. Do i need any special acc maybe domiciliary acc to cash my check wen it arrive? Hw do i cash it?
2. Is it advisable to be a specialised writer on a particular niche, or i can write in different niches and still be a selling author?

1.u need a dom Accnt to cash ur check.
2. u can write in different niches but don't use one author name for different niches.for example if u use an author named Jane Jackson for a book on relationships its wrong to use the same name for a book on science.

one of the places where you can get covers done for you cheap is on fiverr...

By the way... here is the cover for the kindle book i uploaded.
am not expecting much from this since this is the first kindle produced...

i will go with what you said @my82, the cover of the book sells the book itself
and effort has to be made to make sure that the cover makes a whole lot of sense...

how is this one?

@online resources. nice picture you got there. but the cover page of your ebook lack some words.... you need a subtitle that will sell the main title of the book. what is your description page like ? weldone sir.

@mk82,

when you find a niche topic that you want to write about.
how do you go about the content for the material assuming you dont want to go the route
of having to pay someone to write the content for you...

reason is that, i found a niche and getting the content is sort of difficult from google
as most the result is just leading to a paid sales page to buy...

ur input will be very much appreciated.

[color=#006600][/color] Thanks op for this, i love this tread. Very interesting and educative. This seems to be one of the sure way to make cash online even with the patience needed. Question... U made mention of havin a domici acc to recieve ur pay cheque. My question is, wit which name are they sendin the cheque? Due to the fact that u are neither registerin wit ur real name nor publishin books wit ur name. Thanks

Google is ur best source for materials u just have to type the right search terms. You can also try books, both electronic n physical.

I'm happy u did something. I've seen worse. Just check what d competition is doing. let or cover b as good as odas in d same niche.
Odesk is anoda place to get covers. it's usually cheaper when you do them in batches. odesk is gud for us becos there's no PayPal wahala like fiverr.

@Mk82, great stuffs u guys spilling here.

But since believe in properly understudying a terrain before plunging head deep, what will it cost me to have a one-day training on marketing of ebooks via Amazon kindle, the Dos & Don'ts, sourcing of materials, uploading procedure & driving of traffic?

I am an author with an eye on the business niche. My email is folfrad@yahoo.com.

DO NOT USE YOUR REAL NAME.
I had to put dat in caps so no one will miss it. USA is d main market for kindle n dey will rather by a book by someone dey assume is one of their own. Amazon allows you to use as many pen names as u want. Imagine a book on summer tips with a naija name as d author.I have seen a couple of books like dat n dey are not selling.I have become an expert in creating American names smiley

I see what you're saying but that's just sad. I hate the racist bs seen around the world even though I am not Nigerian or African myself.

I have seen your books. Here are my comments:
1. You did not do your research on Amazon.
2. Your books do not have the proper formatting. For instance, no clickable table of content.
3. You used your real Nigerian name.
4. You used the same name for books in different niches. (this is a no no).
5. You have really made some effort, with proper training you will soon start creating books that will make good sales.

The book is too short. Ten pages on Amazon is like about 1500 words.

I want us to understand the author name issue clearly.
You are not claiming to be an American. You are simply presenting valuable information to ur audience. Using a pen make just makes it easier for your audience to accept your work. For instance, most American actors/actresses modify their names. Do you know that the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series was written by various writers, all under the pen name Carolyn Keene?Carolyn Keene does not exist!

That's why I said if you remember that am not expecting it to sell....
Next books that am writing will be at least 20-30 pages in the different niches that I have discovered.

Very lame comment, if u want to sell info just say so. But if u want to teach then dont use dumb comments like that. There is no secret to that just change your ip to USA and that would do. This is a forum where people come to learn. So next time try and teach.
