The hardest part, as we all know, is writing great content and spending the time making sure the material is engaging and error free. Amazon will even show you how many possible errors are in the book once it is uploaded.

 

Now get publishing!

Pictures! Pictures! With the advent of Pinterest, we can't get enough of them. One picture can quickly sum up a message, and is more powerful than a thousand words.

 

Writers pining to be successful Kindle authors should pick up some great clues as to what genre to focus on. Here are some conclusions:

 

CONTENT

--------------

o Approximately 375 pages to a bestseller

o Men want to read about men heroes, but

o Woman heroes will likely become the bestseller

 

GENRE

-----------

o Women love Romance novels. Surprised?

o Men like history

o Top grossing fiction is literature

 

READERS

---------------

o There are 12x more books sold at .99

o Those under 40 read faster than those over 40

o The longer the book, the less likely readers are to finish
