Self-Publish an e-book on Kindle Amazon

Self-publish eBooks and paperbacks for free with Kindle Direct Publishing, and reach millions of readers on Amazon. Yes, you can get published, see your message spread, and make good money using nothing more than a keyboard and your brain. 

Recommended for: people who are passionate about writing 

How much can you earn: it depends on quite a few different variables: the quality (although that’s arguable, I’m sure – there are plenty of objectively bad books that still make it somehow!), the niche (some e-book niches are considerably more popular than others) and your promotional strategy. But if you’ve got a good book and know how to promote it, you could make a few hundred dollars and up to $1,000 or so a month (and even more for some). But ideally, you should keep writing and releasing more e-books in order to keep growing your income from e-book sales 

Start-up costs: while it is possible to start for free (editing yourself or having a friend do it, designing your book cover by yourself, and so on) it’s worth investing at least in an editor and proof-reader; the fees for his vary dramatically, but you can find some great editors on Fiverr for less than $20 for around 2,500 words (both proofreading and editing) 

Publishing a book is easier than ever – literally anyone can do it (which is why you’ll find a plethora of awful, badly edited books on Kindle!) with the Amazon Self-Publishing program. 

It’s free to sign up and literally takes less than 5 minutes to post your book and within 2 days, people will be able to find it and buy it via Amazon. 

As for earnings, you can receive up to 70% royalty on sales made in certain countries, and even more if you add your book to Kindle Unlimited (which is a subscription-based book renting model) or the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
