March 8, 2013 by thedarkphantom
In March 2012 one Canadian author boldly went where few have gone before–into the land of making real money with Amazon’s KDP Select program.This is her story…
My name is Cheryl Kaye Tardif and I am an international bestselling suspense author who earned over $42,000 dollars in March 2012 selling ebooks via Amazon’s KDP Select program
, captured the interest of a major literary agency, and went on to sign with an agent at Trident Media. And I’m about to tell you HOW I did all that.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 Erica Spellman-Silverman, Trident Media.
So, if you’re ready to earn some real money with Select, let’s begin…
- The #1 Marketing book specifically designed for Amazon’s KDP Select program!
- International Bestseller
- Contains detailed Select experiments & analysis previously published on author’s blog (no longer there). Contains over 50% new material. Now gives you over 110 resource links for sites that will promote your free days.
UPDATE: I’ve now earned over $210,000 with KDP Select! I signed with Trident Media; I was also contacted by the senior editor at a “big 6” publishing company because of my success on Amazon; and Amazon hand-picked two of my titles for special promotions–ALL because of my KDP Select success.
I have read and/or reviewed this author’s novels in the past and know she’s a good writer, so when I stumbled upon this title (let’s face it, it’s eye-catching!), I immediately grabbed a copy. I wasn’t disappointed. It was a highly informative read.
In her engaging voice and clear writing style, Tardif takes us through the process that brought her to success–from when she signed up with KDP Select all the way to when her books started selling in the thousands in just a few months. She gives us the numbers and she gives us the facts. She also shares her marketing and promotion strategic “secrets” about blogging, Twitter and Facebook. As an added bonus, there a generous list of links and resources of sites that promote Kindle free books.
If you’re considering Amazon’s KDP Select or are already in it, this is one book you’ll want to read. Is it worth the $2.99? Definitely!
