MIDDLE ISLAND, N.Y., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "True," says millionaire direct response copywriter, lecturer, and author of over 85 books, Bob Bly. "Most are teetering on the brink. Submissions are only welcome, if they relate to a TV star, rock star, movie star, politician or someone on death row." "However," says Bly, "First time authors still have an 'avenue' to turn their creative efforts into best sellers," in the critically-acclaimed e-book "Write & Sell Kindle e-Books For Fun & Profit" at AmazonKindleRiches.com.
Bly emphasizes, "The key to becoming an overnight sensation is for newcomers to self-publish. But," he adds, "to do so in a practically fail-proof way." Says Bly, "My co-editors and I have gone out of our way to make this work a 'road map' to success. Nothing has been omitted. From little tricks to absolute musts." He also points out, "Publishers don't want new writers to know about e-books and their potential for generating huge sales. The last thing they desire is competition to their unsold stuff on bookstore shelves which are draining profits."
Many self-publishing authors validate what Bly is claiming. People like Armanda Hocking could not get a publisher for her novel, so she self-published it as a Kindle e-book. Her out of pocket expenses were $300. In a mere 20 months, the book sold over 1.5 million copies and she earned $2.5 million dollars.
Then there was Florida author Hugh Howey, who indicates his series of "Wool" digital books earn him a six-figure income on Amazon. And that's six figures a month — not a year.
Or how about Michael Rank, who has published numerous books of popular history including the Kindle #1 best seller, From Muhammed to Burj Khalifa: A Crash Course in 2000 Years of Middle East History. Find more case histories like these at AmazonKindleRiches.com.
They are also detailed in "Write & Sell Kindle e-Books For Fun & Profit," which is already well on its way to becoming the "Bible" for authors who are determined to get their work out there. According to Bly, "Manuscripts which in better times might have had a reasonable chance for acceptance at least by an agent, can no longer even be read. This is tragic."
Adds Bly, "The truth is the big publishing houses only want sure best sellers. These days, they almost have a tabloid mentality. These once highly reserved, intellectually grounded, leviathans of the publishing industry known for their ability to turn obscure manuscripts into international best sellers, currently crave the sensational, the lurid, and the time proven kinds of action and sex stuff written by high-priced authors. The flip side to this strategy is that if their books don't sell, they risk continuing to bleed money which currently is flowing faster than ever. This means these traditional giants won't take risks with newbies."
His thoughts are shared by co-editor, Andrew Linick, The Copyologist®, one of America's legendary marketers and publishing experts who along with Bob Bly, best-selling author of 85 books, and Kim Stacey, helped create Write & Sell Kindle e-Books For Fun & Profit. Linick considers this work "a shortcut to maximizing chances for fame and riches." He continues, "It is absolute must-read for anyone who is considering writing an e-book, has just written a book, or has an old manuscript stored in a trunk. What is burnished into these pages is a virtual 'gold mine' to getting your work before the target audience it deserves." For more, visit AmazingKindleRiches.com.
