Some people think that if there are free eBooks on the Internet no one will pay for a premium book on Amazon. I want to assure everyone that this thought is a common mistake. Never judge and never make your own conclusions based on your personal theoretical considerations.
By my own experience I can with assurance tell you that selling eBooks on Mazon can generate you a regular income. If this month people buy your book on Amazon be sure that the next month your sales won’t decrease. If they buy books today that’s because they have some reasons to buy it. Your book may be very helpful or it may be merely popular. Your sales may reduce if some people write you negative reviews. That can even destroy your Amazon eBook business. Otherwise, if everything is OK your income will be regular. What I really like on Amazon is their punctuality. Your royalty funds will be transferred to your bank account at the end of every month. Thus your Amazon eBook royalties will become your regular salary. The best way to make a regular income on Amazon is to publish some ebooks on AMAZON KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) and on CreateSpace (Amazon’s company). Thus you will have two income sources from Amazon.
A number of your royalties will depend on the quality of your eBooks and your promotions. You can write a masterpiece but without a promotion, nobody will even see your eBook on Amazon. Sometimes you may not have any royalties because nobody wants to buy your eBook. If it happens you won’t receive any money from Amazon. You may make thousands or even millions of dollars if you have a good eBook promotion. Mainly the success of your eBook depends on the amount of money you currently have in your bank account. You won’t be able to promote your book without any funds. If you are not famous enough and no one knows about your self-published book on Amazon you still have a chance to make some money by selling your eBooks. No one can predict whether a book will be popular or not.
The most important step for you is to get rid of your fears and publish your eBook on Amazon.
