TKC Extra – Make Money with E-Books

This is a recording of the second talk that I gave on August 13, 2011 at the Professional Outdoor Media Association‘s annual conference at the Marriott in Ogden, Utah. The title of this presentation was “Make Money with E-Books.”  You can download the Word document I prepared as a handout here.

I discussed the following three writers who are making money with E-books: Karen McQuestion, J.A. Konrath, and Kate Harper.  Click here to purchase Kate’s 99-cent article titled “How to Publish and Sell Your Article: 12 Tips for Short Documents.”

Since the conference I’ve heard from two POMA members who followed my suggestions and have published their work at the Kindle Store.  One is Tom Claycomb III, of Idaho.  His Kindle article costs 99 cents and is titled “Knife Sharpening.” Tom is a clear, accomplished writer so I hope you’ll consider buying his book to help him get started in the world of e-pubishing.

The other notable e-book which has been published as a result of the POMA workshop is titled Reloading from Another Point of View II by Bob Shell, priced at $9.99.

We’re waiting for Irene to arrive here in Ocean Park, Maine, ready to move to higher ground if necessary.  I’ll resume the normal weekly schedule for The Kindle Chronicles next week.

    It is great to hear some success stories! I hope I can follow in their foot steps and make some new tracks of my own.

    Is there a way to support oneself in web or e-publishing of serious nonfiction books, say on US politics or on discrimination?

    Good question. I think there is actually a better chance of making a decent living as a nonfiction writer than is the case for writers of fiction. There is certainly a growing market for e-books, and tools such as Kindle Direct Publishing which make the self-publishing of books easier and more feasible than ever. That said, there are no assured paths to success. Good luck to you!
