$42,000 in 1 Month Selling My Kindle eBooks

42-featuredCanadian author Cheryl Kaye Tardif shares her story of how she made over $42,000 in one month selling the Kindle books she wrote through the Amazon KDP Select program. In a recent update she says she made $200,000 in just over 9 months.

I gave up writing ebooks; only wrote 3-4 myself. Didn't think there was much money in it, although the market I was writing for was small. But for anyone who is 50, alone, and maybe even retired, if you like to write, this book will offer you some amazing promotion tips. She says:

I don't normally tell people how much money I make, but I believe writers need to know it IS possible to earn a real income from your books. Seriously, if I can do it, anyone can--if you have the right combination of criteria and techniques.

In this book, I'll share with you what I believe are four key elements you must have in place to see high sales. And I'll reveal the strategic techniques I used during my KDP Select promotions that resulted in earning over $42,000--with $32,000 of that from ONE title alone.

Not only did I earn over $42,000 in ebook sales, I was contacted by Trident Media, one of the leading literary agencies in New York. The chairman, Robert Gottlieb, saw my success when my one title made #4 in the Top 100 Bestselling Kindle ebooks, right under The Hunger Games trilogy. I am now represented by agent Adrienne Lombardo.
