Self-Publishing For Profit

You may have only come here to view our expanding directory of work at home jobs for moms, but if you’ve got writing talent you’re on the brink of discovering an entirely new career: self-publishing. As the popularity of ebook readers like Amazon’s Kindle or Barnes & Noble’s Nook continues to rise, so does the popularity of ebooks. With growing consumer demand for content, writers with an interest in self-publishing are finding this to be a lucrative avenue, indeed.

Did you know that in less than a week’s time you can publish your own ebook and begin earning a profit from online sales? With quality writing and strong marketing, some authors are making thousands of extra dollars each month from ebook sales. Of course, not everyone is finding the same success, as results on these things always vary. But then, on the other hand, some authors aren’t just making thousands per month, they’re actually making several thousand dollars per day!

While you may think that self-publishing is a difficult task too far beyond your reach, our research tells us just the opposite. According to those who have been there and done that, the actual process of self-publishing on Kindle or other ebook outlets isn’t too difficult at all. Furthermore, a lot of authors who’ve had previous book deals with established publishing houses are finding that, in a lot of ways, they actually prefer self-publishing.

And, no, you do not have to be a well-known author in order to find success on one of these venues. And, no, you don’t have to set your books at a high price in order to earn a profit. In fact, some of the authors that are finding the most success with online publishing were previously unknown and– get this, they are making a killing selling .99 cent books!

If you don’t believe me, take a look at some of the authors who’ve found notable success via online publishing:

J.A. Konrath

Zoe Winters

H.P. Mallory

And, folks, this is just a tiny sampling of the authors who’ve carved lucrative careers for themselves in online publishing.

If you’ve ever thought about writing a book (fiction or non-fiction), you owe it to yourself to look closely into the possibilities of self-publishing. While at one time doing so held a certain stigma, those who understand how digital technology is rapidly changing the publishing landscape also understand that, while print will (hopefully) never be obsolete, consumers have spoken and guess what they said? Ebooks rock!

One final thought before we send you away with a few links for further exploration; you do not have to own a Kindle, a Nook, an iPad or any other type of reading device to begin a self-publishing career. You don’t even necessarily have to read other people’s books on these devices if you’re curious to check a few out before you take the plunge (you can actually download a Kindle app right to your computer and read from there, and there are lots of other places that sell ebooks that can be read on your computer). So, if you’ve ever toyed with the idea of self-publishing before, we want you to know that this is an excellent work at home career choice.
