For Writers: Make Money From Kindle Authors

Ebooks are the hot new market for writers, specifically, ebooks for the Kindle and other ereaders.

As you can see from this image, almost 38,000 new ebooks have been uploaded to the Amazon Kindle ebook store in the past month.

That’s a lot of ebooks, and ebook creators.

You may not want to write your own ebook and publish it on the Kindle, although you should. Even if you don’t however, there’s money to be made from Kindle authors.

Why not set yourself to earn some of the cash that’s floating around?

Let’s look at two ways you could do that.

1. Offer proofreading and editing services

I buy lots of Kindle ebooks, and I see errors — formatting and other errors. You could offer a variety of services to Kindle authors: proofreading, basic line editing, right up to comprehensive editing.

Set your fees to start at $200 per ebook. For comprehensive editing, depending on the length of the ebook, you would charge much more.

Join Kindle Boards to become familiar with this market, and get clients.

2. Offer ebook writing services

Why not offer to create Kindle ebooks for others?

For this service, I suggest you charge upwards of $1,000…

Here’s a way to write an ebook in under 8 hours

Turn Your Words Into Gold: Write and Sell An Ebook In Just Eight Hours

Here’s what I love about writing ebooks: you write them once, and they keep on selling forever.

I know several writers who’ve taken to the Kindle platform like the proverbial ducks to water. One writer friend turns out a new Kindle ebook every month, like clockwork. The last time we spoke, she had 11 ebooks selling — and her income is rising month by month.

Another writer friend mixes writing her own ebooks, with writing ebooks for others. Currently she’s been commissioned to write a biography, and a family history, for the same client. She’s finding it huge fun, and she’s making more money than she’s ever made.

The benefit of writing and selling ebooks is that once written, they can keep on selling forever. Would you trade eight hours for an income stream?
