The Benefits Of Being An Author And Why Writing Kindle Books
Total Articles: 37
It wasn't that long ago that the only way to get your book published was to play the "waiting game" while major book publishers took their time getting any book published. With their large budgets and total control of all the distribution, it was almost impossible to get your book into any of the major bookstores, like Barnes & Noble or Walden's.
As a new author without a sales reputation, you would also be responsible for the costs of producing your book. Vanity publishing would be your only path to publication. You would be responsible for thousands of dollars to pay for editing and publishing. Many times, if not most, you would have to agree to buy a few thousand copies of your own book.
Kindle publishing is the perfect alternative to the high costs and production delays of traditional publication. The normal delays and disappointments are not part of Kindle's publishing platform.
New authors do have several benefits when they write books for Kindle, regardless of the topic. Self-publishing has changed the way books are published and companies are popping up all over that print on demand or provide services to help new authors get their book published.
One major benefit of publishing on Kindle is the higher royalty rates paid by Kindle when you make sales. Your royalties are based on the price you set for your book when you publish on Kindle. If your book's selling price is set somewhere between $2.99 and $9.99, your royalty is 70% of the sale. If you set a price outside those limits, your percentage drops to 35%. Other publishers offer lower percentages to the author.
Another benefit of self-publishing is that YOU can control all aspects of your book, including the cover design, your book topics and how it is marketed. You don't have to worry about the short 30-60 day shelf-life that most brick and mortar stores use. Digital books on Kindle have a forever shelf-life and you are the one who makes the decision to take your book down or not.
Personally, publishing Kindle books on almost any subject can build your reputation as an author. Your book will build your reputation in your current business, even if the book has nothing to do with your day job. When your co-workers find out that you have a book published on Kindle, your personal reputation will build rapidly.
Another huge benefit of Kindle publishing is how your clients will react to your published book. You will become a person of value in their mind and it could lead to more business and keep you a few steps above your business competition. Your Kindle book can be sent to your clients to mark a new business alliance or just to keep those clients thinking about you and your business.
Once you write your book and get it on Kindle, it could take on a life of its own and build your reputation as a published author. Additional books can be on any subject that attracts your interest. Your scope is worldwide and not restricted to the topic of your first Kindle book.
