Are Kindle SIngles Authors Making Money?
There are so many ways to publish a book today. Kindle Singles may be Amazon's best kept secret for authors. There are just over 300 titles published to date, and, as you'll see from the story below, some authors are making big bucks on these 99 cents or $1.00 short-to-medium-length books.
“All of this stands in evidence that in its Kindle Singles brand, Amazon is investing in a serious business model behind a quality editorial product. We all -- readers and writers alike -- stand to benefit from that combination.” Rebecca J. Rosen in “Authors of Kindle Singles Raking in Tens of Thousands of Dollars” (see below)
