If you can't write, you can find people to write for you on freelance websites like elance n odesk. I am a good writer but I also outsource books because I can't do all d work by myself.

@mk82, what's the probability of a motivational book selling on kindle?

Bestlyf: @mk82, what's the probability of a motivational book selling on kindle?
The ordinary motivational book will not sell. I mean the type that is only about encouraging people. People are tired of being encouraged. What they want are solutions to their problems.
Go to amazon bestsellers,click on kindle then kindle ebooks.select d self help category and check the types of self-help books that are selling.

Thanks. I just wanted to do something unique along the lines of fiction and non-fiction combine in one. Just an idea anyway. Will check the self help category now. I appreciate.

Formatting is the last thing you do after writing and editing your book in MS word.

Kay29000 I love your spirit. If you follow me closely, your next five books will surely give you more than $100.
I am putting up 10 books btw November to December and I am expecting more than $1000 from their immediate sales and more from residual sales afterward.

10 fucking books? Cool man. Keep up at it bro.

The last promotion I did was the worst of my kindle
book publishing. Dunno why.

Funny enough, it was the first time I'll be posting
the books on free kindle sites, facebook and twitter ish.

Just one sale per day each book. This thing is funny to me at times.
The book with just 27 pages without any good information like that is now
making much more than I expected..

@all, make sure you do your best to write a very good book like the
op has been suggesting.

To check your sales n promotion downloads, click on reports on your dashboard then select "Month-to-Date Unit Sales". You'll see each book's performance for separate market places.

You are seeing no promotion probably because d promo had ended. Promotions start 8am Nigerian time on d chosen date and run for 24 hours. Eg, a 2 day promotion starts 8am Monday will end 8am Wednesday.

Yes ten books. The first one is up over the weekend and has sold more than 50 copies as of this morning (it's in hot new release in two subcategories). I'm uploading the next one today. 3 are being written by freelancers n I'm doing anoda by myself.
Tip: sales rise November to February and there will be bonus from KDP select dat is why I'm rushing.

Read dat your 27 page book again.There must be something in it for people to b buying it.It has happened to me before. We learn from success,failure n mistakes in this biz.

Promotion will not work for some books. especially if it is in a generally category. this happened to most of the fiction books I published. but when I publish a book in a narrowed down nonfiction niche, it's always blast.I've had more than 2000 downloads in one day.

I think free kindle book sites are overrated. I've since stopped using them. I haven't seen much difference in my free promos.

To succeed in Kindle publishing, you must first research on what subject areas kindle buyers are really interested in, otherwise you might just be wasting your time and energy.

Make sure d book is enrolled for KDP select.You can enroll when you are uploading or after.
Promotion is set after d book is published. Go to your bookshelf. Click on manage benefits at the right end of the book. On d benefits page there are two options - kindle countdown deal n Free Book Promotion. Choose Free Book Promotion n set d dates dat you want.

Bestlyf: @mk82, How do I get my book to rank in the first page of kindle books? I believe the books on first page would do better in times of visibility and sales.
Books are ranked according to Amazon Sales Rank. Now this can be real sales or free downloads (during free promotions). If ur book is selling well, it will naturally appear on d first page of bestsellers in its category.
The other way to get your book on the first page is to have a successful free promotion.
On the bestsellers' page, paid books are displayed alongside free books. This means if you have a lot of free promo downloads, d book will appear alongside other bestsellers under paid.
This exposure will translate to sales for you when d free promo ends.

Example. I did a free promo for a new book over the weekend. It had over 2400 downloads in 2 days n rose to number 1 in 2 subcategories. It also rose up to #86 free in Kindle store. D promo ended 2 days ago n it has sold almost 80 copies.

i will first of all thank you for this costly info you are giving away free of charge. however, i would like you to tell us something more about the cliche that sells more. you dont need to be specific just categorize it please. you talked about recipes what other ones. CLICHE is the KEY please educate us more on this.
