    Stephen, Maybe you could give us a chapter of your new ebook to read? Possibly doing one post a day for two weeks. That way you would be blogging about the book which would help you to market the ebook.

    So far what has the process of getting your ebook on kindle been like? If I were to write a ebook what advice would you give me on: what to write about, what books sell the most, what does the average ebook make in sales and would you recommend Amazon Kindle , why or why not?

    Thank You! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on these questions. I am sure I will have even more once you start blogging about one of the ebook chapters.

    Unfortunately, due to my agreement with Amazon, the book cannot appear online. This is a provision of the Kindle Select Library where Amazon Prime members can borrow the book for free. You may ask why I would want people borrowing for free. The truth is I actually make more money this way then if I sell the book. The Kindle Select Library has a fund (roughly $500,000 per month) that they distribute to every contributing author whose books are loaned. It’s really a win-win for everyone and I am excited to be part of it.

    Publishing on Kindle is an extremely easy process. The trickiest part is formatting the manuscript. I studied several YouTube videos and it took me about two weeks to complete. There are still a couple format glitches in the book, but overall it turned out great. The first time I clicked on a chapter in the table of contents and it actually went to the right chapter was a very satisfying accomplishment.

    I don’t know much about the sales market yet, but I have heard cookbooks sell like hotcakes. Mmm…tasty hotcakes. Maybe that should be my next project :)
