I would never have attempted to publish my own books at any other time in our history. That’s a bold statement... The thing is, the Kindle revolution has made it so easy that if you aspire to be a published author, now IS the time. Today, you don’t have to send out hundreds of letters to publishers or agents. You don’t have to receive hundreds of rejection letters back. Even if you do get a literary agent interested in your work, there are so many people involved in the decision to publish your book that there’s no guarantee you’ll get it in print. That’s not even mentioning how your profits will be eaten away by the various people involved in the process. Each will take their cut. Today, you can write a book and self-publish it on Amazon for FREE and ANYONE can do it. Not only that, but you can earn up to 70% royalties on your book sales! We are at a special time in history where opportunity really is knocking. My entire strategy for formatting, self-publishing and promoting your books on Amazon is covered in this book. You don't need to be a tech wizard, as each step is described in great detail with plenty of screenshots. If you can use a word processor, you can publish your work on Amazon!

About the Author I published my first Kindle book in August 2012. By December 2012 (just 5 months later), I was making what many people consider to be a full time income from my books. I've been writing and publishing books ever since, with over 20 books now on Amazon.
