Kindle Publishing Made (Stupidly) Easy – How to Prepare, Self Publish and Promote Your Book Into a Kindle Bestseller
Kindle publishing doesn’t have to mean fifty-dollar royalty checks and hours spent updating countless Facebook pages all so that a couple hundred people may or may not grab a free copy of your book.
Kindle publishing can actually be the most magical thing of all to writers: the chance to have a lucrative self publishing career doing the thing they love most.
Writing words down.
We couldn’t have said any of this 10 years ago. 10 years ago the New York traditional publishers owned the gate…and the gatekeepers…and the land surrounding the gatekeeper.
But now…as long as you have a great kindle ebook cover (and not one that looks like a fourteen-year-old with a bootleg copy of Photoshop made it…and you write a decent (and passionate) book then your self published book will look EXACTLY the same as a Stephen King novel.
My Way to getting published

Fingers crossed worldwide in time!
Can you imagine, little old me with a worldwide bestseller in book shops?
