So maybe you aren’t ready to write a super long novel, or a NY Times Best Seller with 40k words.
It’s totally fine, there are many “short” books selling very well on Amazon.
Is there something you know that maybe others don’t know? The answer for most people is, YES!
Let’s say you offer a paperback book on Amazon for $9.99, the royalty will be 60%, meaning your royalty is $5.99
So, let’s suppose your book on Amazon gets an average of 3 sales per day, which is 90 for the month.
90 x $5.99 = $539.10
Now, this is just one book! Suppose you publish 4 short books pulling those numbers? Now you are making over $2,000 per month without pushing traffic.
Kindle eBooks are similar, but a 70% royalty when you price at $2.99 and up.
I am not saying you are guaranteed to get these numbers, but clearly very achievable. If your book has a tough time hitting these numbers, luckily Amazon has a built in Ads Program!
I have over 1,750 published books, so I am sure I can help you.
