Summary: John Tighe has put together a great little book for writers seeking to be successful selling their books in eBook format for Kindle. It includes monetizing Kindle books, choosing between niche and genre, how to write your book quickly, how to conduct research, writing your book, editing, and much more.
Pros: It’s very inclusive of the information needed to be successful on Amazon with Kindle eBooks. I especially enjoyed the parts about marketing your book and the book launch itself. Tighe gives tips on advertising, keyword research and usage, attention grabbing titles, why it’s important to use sub-titles, Amazon categories, and much more. It’s all useful information.
Cons: Some parts of the book were discouraging for me. Although they may have been honest, I felt there could be other ways to do what was being described. For example, Tighe recommends getting reviews for your book before you do the official launch. This would include giving away a free review copy of the book to someone in return for a review. I appreciate the fact that Tighe didn’t recommend making up reviews! However, this seems a daunting task as do other tasks in the book. Like I said, however, it may be the truth of it in which case it needs to be said.
Reader Warnings: None
Conclusion: This is a great book for anyone thinking about publishing eBooks on Amazon for Kindle. You can borrow it for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.
