How to Self-Publish a Book on Amazon
As the calendar changed from to , I had no idea that I was going to self-publish a Kindle book this year. Like most people, I had always wanted to write a book. Like most people, I had never done anything about it. I had never heard of Tom before, but at the time he recorded the course he had published more than 20 books on Amazon that had become bestsellers. So clearly the guy knows what he is doing. The first lecture of the course was a little awkward. It was a poorly recorded informal class that he had led to teach people about the opportunity presented by Amazon Kindle.
You can publish elsewhere, but few places get your book online and ready in a matter of hours. When you publish first (and maybe exclusively).

The Writing Cooperative
I have friends that are making 5 figures monthly, by building their small publishing empire. I have always been a writer, ever since I was a kid. And even in school, the formatting, teasing out, and creation of a page thesis got me going. Breaching top of ALL books in Kindle store, dual 1 bestseller status in two categories, and also breaching top 20 books in Self-Help. You can check out the book here.
The people I follow online have sold a lot more than books. However, I read recently that the majority of self-published authors sell less than copies of their books. So maybe there are indie authors out there who might actually want to know how a nobody like me managed to sell over But every single one of those copies were paid downloads. I have learned a few tips along the way that may be of use to newer indie authors. Does this mean you have to stifle your creativity and only write mass market, commercial books? It just means that whatever genre you write in, you have to be highly familiar with what readers of that genre actually buy, and create something that follows their criteria.
