Kindle Book Advice

In this recent Expert Briefs post, Nicole Dean asked:

“Have you Written Kindle books? If so, what was one mistake that you made from concept, to creation, to formatting, to marketing that you wished you’d known sooner so you could avoid it?”

My own experience with Kindle publishing is so light I didn’t want to reply – but I sure enjoyed the input others had to share.

  • Lain Ehmann wishes she’d taken greater care with her cover work.
  • Kevin Riley wished he’d taken greater care with his formatting.
  • Rachel Rofe points out that bad formatting can cause poor reviews.
  • Connie Ragen Green gives a hat tip to the value of having your own publishing brand.
  • Kristen Eckstien wishes she’d realized how big Kindle would become sooner.
  • Bob Jenkins recommends working with a book coach.
  • Susanne Myers says take it slow.
  • Melissa Ingold emphasizes the value of keyword research.

Finally, Nicole herself shares openly about some mistakes she believes she made with her recent book launch.  If you’re interested in publishing on Kindle soon, you’ve got to read what she has to say.
