Self-publishing Has Been Good To Kindle Millionaire

Amanda Hocking, known as the “Kindle Millionaire,” is a twenty-six-year-old writer who has identified how to sell more than a million copies of her self-published ebooks. Hocking is part of a growing group of authors doing well with self-published ebooks. Some authors make more from self-publishing than they do by working with publishing houses. But also as she’s done, Hocking recently could not pass up a $2 million advance from a traditional publishing house. Article resource – Self-publishing Kindle Millionaire leaves independence behind by Newsytype.com.

How to turn into a Kindle Millionaire

The Kindle Millionaire is Amanda Hocking. She only started a year ago self-publishing her electronic books. Her vampire romance potboilers have made her the best-selling independent author in the Amazon Kindle store. Each month, about 100,000 of her e-books have sold. They cost between 99 cents and $2.99 typically. Every time one sales, Amazon gets 30 percent. A high turnover is easily maintained by her. She always has fresh novels coming out. Hocking’s most popular titles are the books in the “Trylle Trilogy,” which go for $2.99 each. She also self-publishes her work at the iBooks Store and for the Barnes & Noble Nook. Hocking has to work a lot harder than other writers while doing it all.

How self-publishing pays off

For some authors, self-publishing pays better than working with traditional publishers. New York Times bestseller writer, Barry Eisler, wrote Thriller. He said no to a $500,000 deal to publish his next book so he could do it himself. It can pay off more to self-publish, Joe Konrath states on his blog. You will find about 7,000 self published electronic books sold by Konrath every month. This is for the Kindle alone. There are about 833 sales per month of his top six titles. The revenue he makes is about $1,700 from them. His best selling electronic book controlled by a traditional publisher has sold 2,631 downloads since 2004, earning him $2,200, or about $34 a month. Konrath gets $1.17 out of every sale of the electronic book while Amazon sells it for $4.69. Selling for $2.99 and not going through a publisher, Konrath will make $2.04 off every sale. These are the Amazon numbers for self-publishing. Because his traditional publisher prices the ebooks too high and returns such a low royalty, Konrath is losing money on the deal.

Hard copy stories might be good for the Kindle Millionaire

After being dubbed the Kindle Millionaire and touted as an existential threat to publishing houses, Hocking signed with St. Martin’s Press, a subsidiary of Macmillan. The next four romance series books she writes got her $2 million in advance. Hocking has a blog where she said she just wanted more time to write. She did not want to have to deal with freelance editors, emails and covers. She’ll also benefit with a wider audience from traditional media outlets. Forbes’ Kiri Blakely, worries that Hocking will stop making any money and loser her following. Individuals liked her because she was fast and cheap. It could be difficult match her 99 cent e-book success with real books that command up to $30 for hard cover first editions.

Designing for Digital Reading


Designing for Digital Reading


$40.99


Reading is a complex human activity that has evolved, and co-evolved, with technology over thousands of years. Mass printing in the fifteenth century firmly established what we know as the modern book, with its physical format of covers and paper pages, and now-standard features such as page numbers, footnotes, and diagrams. Today, electronic documents are enabling paperless reading supported by eReading technologies such as Kindles and Nooks, yet a high proportion of users still opt to print on paper before reading. This persistent habit of “printing to read” is one sign of the shortcomings of digital documents – although the popularity of eReaders is one sign of the shortcomings of paper. How do we get the best of both worlds? The physical properties of paper (for example, it is light, thin, and flexible) contribute to the ease with which physical documents are manipulated; but these properties have a completely different set of affordances to their digital equivalents. Paper can be folded, ripped, or scribbled on almost subconsciously – activities that require significant cognitive attention in their digital form, if they are even possible. The nearly subliminal interaction that comes from years of learned behavior with paper has been described as lightweight interaction, which is achieved when a person actively reads an article in a way that is so easy and unselfconscious that they are not apt to remember their actions later. Reading is now in a period of rapid change, and digital text is fast becoming the predominant mode of reading. As a society, we are merely at the start of the journey of designing truly effective tools for handling digital text. This book investigates the advantages of paper, how the affordances of paper can be realized in digital form, and what forms best support lightweight interaction for active reading. To understand how to design for the future, we review the ways reading technology and reader behavior have both changed and remained
