For those of you that have started working on books, ensure your research is properly done. Don't just 'think up' a topic to write a book on. Make sure you research and find a keyword that is selling on Amazon kindle. Even if the niche is popular on Google or clickbank, Amazon is the ultimate test.
Another tip: Avoid niches where all d bestselling books are by celebrity authors.

1. You can start without d payoneer card.
2. D bank details is for your American bank acct not local bank.
3. You have to fill the tax details as a formality. there is really no information to supply since u are a Nigerian. Just tick the necessary boxes and write ur name as the electronic signature.

Work on fiction books more.

If you will ever publish a non fiction, make sure its the best and
it has what other books in that niche does not have.

better still, research a fresh niche to publish a non fiction in.

Fiction books sells like hot cake, though for a limited time but the
money I do make from fiction books within the short period of high
sales is better off 3 months sales from non fiction - maybe i'm unlucky sha.

My teaching on this thread is not based on luck or hearsay. I published my first book in June 2012 though I started gathering materials from November 2011. I've personally uploaded over 100 books (for myself n others).From personal experience, d experience of people around me, d books I've read n videos watched, nonfiction is d best category for anyone who wants regular kindle income.
I have said it previously. Fiction has a very high failure rate n d competition is high.
With nonfiction, you can find niches where you can publish books that will keep selling for years. Some of my last year's books have sold 300 to 500 copies so far this year n they will continue selling in d coming years becos they are in evergreen niches.

Second book completed now... Now remains the ecover for the book...
As for the first one, am going to be rewriting it all over again and change the cover to something better

@mk82, u talked about using the kdp select to do the free promotion, is it kindle that will do the free promotion for the book or I have to do it myself to get that many downloads for the books...
And also, do you have a particular day of launching the 2 days kdp select to get the most downloads or you just do it anytime u feel like...

1.Amazon does the promotion,u only have to set it up.Enroll or book in kdp select when publishing or after.
Login to your bookshelf, scroll to the right end of the book n click on manage benefits.At d benefits page, select free promotion n choose the dates you want.

2.I used to believe dat weekdays were better for promotions but experience has proved me wrong.Now I don't care about the days.

Funny, I guess you have to go read what I wrote and you will surely see enough senses there
Fiction and non fiction sells and your old book will only sell if its one of the best in that
category provided you got real reviews.

My first book, was submitted 08/21/2012 and you should note this, I've got only 2 fiction books
on amazon. As for me, fiction books will bring the cash for you fast and forget about competition
no one if buying a fiction book to learn something, they only wanna get entertained !

@suxes2005, now you have told us that you have only 2 fiction books on Amazon and you want people to follow you because of just two books! By the way, the book you gave a link to in page four of this thread has not sold even one copy since being published on November 7 (a week ago). When a book sells it will have an Amazon Best Sellers Rank. This one does not. Since you claim kindle "pays the bills @ least", I'll like you to show us a screen shot of your current sales so we can believe you.

Thank you

I haven't read through the thread but I can confirm that kindle publishing (and e-publishing, in general) is the best passive income opportunity on the internet. But it is HARD WORK. The best niches are recipes, preppers, erotica, new adult and get-rich-quick. You can email me at einsteinesegbue at gmail dot com for more info.

Bro, there is no one size fit all here. Personally, I've had more luck with fiction. 80 percent of SELLING kindle books are fiction. However, if you are not a particularly good writer, focus on NON FICTION. Also, stop doing kdp select. Smart publishers have abandoned it. I did well with the free promos early 2012 but right now, you won't get much juice out of it. I must also add, kindle is not a shortcut to riches. Be prepared to invest time or money(ideally both). If writing is something you love, then this could be something to make a few bucks from.

HOW TO AVOID PLAGIARISM
One of the main problems you have to overcome when creating Kindle ebooks is that of copied content. This is a challenge whether you are outsourcing or writing your books by yourself. Amazon does not accept content that is freely available on the internet. If you submit copied content, you'll be warned and a repeat may lead to the account being blocked.
This is a real concern if you are writing nonfiction.
Because:
-You cannot creat facts
- You must get material from already existing sources.

Here are my suggestions:
1. Get your materials from multiple sources -eBooks, physical books & reputable websites.
2. Ensure that every sentence and paragraph is properly rewritten. Even if you are writing recipes, d order of the ingredients can be changed and the directions written in your own words.
3. If you are modelling a particular successful book, make sure you do not use the exact format and presentation.eg your chapters and subchapters should have different titles.
4. Finally, Check the finished work with copyscape and correct any duplicate content detected. I personally use the premium copyscape account.

My spirit just got lifted, and I am back to writing my next book. I already had 5 books up before I saw this thread, and stumbing upon d thread last week got me fired up. I completed and uploaded a book on Tuesday. Now I am working on d next. I ain't No expert yet, and haven't even made $100 yet, but I av to say this is d best passive income business out there. Google is your friend...do some research of your own.

I will keep posting here till I start earning my target of $6,000 a month. I know I will get there cos I won't stop writing. And it just takes that one golden book to sell 3,000 copies monthly for me to hit my target. There are about 7 billion people in the world...300 million people in my major market (America)...I am confident I can write a book that .0001% would love to read monthly.
