  1. I don’t mean to be a STINKER but…. the VAST majority of Kindle authors don’t make ANY money.

    The “median” figures you hear about Kindle authors clocking $154,000 has to be viewed in CONTEXT… that’s SURVIVOR BIAS… You only hear about the ‘successes’ because they’re around to tell the tale…

    How about the person who published ten books and then gave up after not making anything?

    I don’t mean to be negative… But for what it’s worth, successful authors aren’t that mysterious when it comes to their success.

    They share several features

    First, they have mailing lists – that’s why they give out 99 cent or even FREE novels… it’s all about building lists

    Second, they are either super passionate about their niche and just MAKE IT WORK or…

    They focus on targeting HOT niches with big followings and write on THOSE topics

    How do they know a sub-niche is HOT? They check the SALES RANK of the top 10 self-published books listed in the sub-niche.

    If they notice that ALL the top 10 books have a sales rank of 10,000 or better (Amazon sales rank works in reverse order, the lower the rank number, the better), they select that niche!

    Why? A 10,000 sales rank translatest to around $10,000 in sales YEARLY… per book!

    If they aren’t experts, they hire ghostwriters. No, Experienced American GWS aren’t all expensive. Sure, some will charge you $10,000 for a 200 page book but there are more affordable authors out there.

    Well-known American ghostwriters like Gene Eugenio are known to write whole books for as little as 99 bucks. There are a few others like him. The bottom line? Just because you’re not an expert in your niche doesn’t mean you can’t write an expert book…. Just outsource it

    Third, successful build a solid author brand – they produce series after series and each book promotes previous books. They write tons of books or publish ghostwitter books. Each becomes an asset that adds value to existing books in the series.

    Some even have their own Youtube channels.

    These aren’t secrets. The problem is most authors just don’t want to build a publishing system… that’s why there is such a big DISPARITY between successful authors and not so successful ones… This doesn’t have to be the case.

    1. Great points you raise here Grace! Success doesn’t come in just publishing a few books… it really takes a lot of effort, lots of books, really good research beforehand and great content.
