If you've perused the digital shelves of Amazon Kindle looking for advice on how to earn more as an author, you're not alone. Every author wants to earn more, because the fact of the matter is that royalties are no big whoop, even if you're selling a $20 tome.
"Authors earn more money BECAUSE they're authors than they do from actual book sales."
-- Ronda Del Boccio
I have a couple books at 99c. Perhaps you do too. This little volume by Kristen Eckstein is right in line with what I teach all my mentoring students about earning money from y your books. You have to think outside the cover. So heer's my review of a helpful little book
99-cent Kindle books seem to be winning the book publishing popularity contest. Every day more of them are released, flooding the market with affordable information.
