Published, My First Kindle Book!

Yup, Published, My First Kindle Book!

Hello Beautiful Souls,

Jivita here.

First I want to wish all the beautiful women entrepreneurs in WA.

Wish You All A Very Happy Women’s Day!

8th March is a special day for me, just not because it’s Women’s day but it’s the day when I joined WA.

It’s also my 5th WA anniversary:) Time really flies by, I still remember the day when I joined WA. I accidentally found WA, and I was very unsure whether I should join WA.

But today I am really happy that I took the decision to join WA because WA really changed my life.

I think the secret of WA’s success is its simplicity. Even a non-techy person like me can build an online business on this platform.

The credit goes to Kyle, Carson & Jay, who leads by example.

I have learned many things not only in professional but in personal life also, by observing this trio:)

Gratitude to all, especially Jay, my mentor:) He taught me the importance of persistence.

This year I decided to try something different.

I came across an opportunity to create a Kindle book. For many days, I was thinking of creating an e-book for my niche site.

Then I thought why not create an ebook for Kindle? So for the last two months, I was working on my Kindle book and now it’s published on Amazon!

It’s on Reiki, my niche topic: An Unconventional Outlook: Reiki

Honestly, I didn’t find it difficult to write a book for Kindle, because as a blogger we are all used to writing.

On the contrary, I found writing for Kindle is a bit easy compared to blogging. For every blog that we write, we are competing with thousands of articles on the Internet.

On Kindle, there is less competition if you are writing for a niche-related book. And I would like to encourage all of you to write for Kindle.

I am going to create a training on how to create a kindle book, this is a huge opportunity to brand yourself on Amazon.

On the contrary to our belief, Amazon provides a dedicated page for its authors where you can promote your book, list your blog and also add your RSS feed. I think it’s a great opportunity for bloggers.

You can find my book here: An Unconventional Outlook: Reiki (not an affiliate link). I had never thought that joining WA, writing for my website can lead me to author a book.

You can get my book for free from 9th March - 11th March(PST).

I would really appreciate it if you leave a review on Amazon, and you know what, all the time I badly miss site comments, and remembered how easy it is to get a comment on WA:)).

Alas, we can’t get it for Kindle.

Here is a direct link to the Amazon review page:

My heartfelt thanks to WA, site support, and the amazing WA community.

Reiki Blessings,

jivita

Awesome! I don't use Kindle, but I commend you on the completion of your book on an amazing topic, Reiki. For that reason, I will check it out.

Congrats.

Rudy

Thanks Rudy,

Reiki not only a popular but very competitive niche. And you will be surprised to know that just two days before when I checked for total Reiki books on Amazon it's 9000, and today it's 10,000!

Thanks for your purchase, and I hope you will like it. I know you are a Reiki practitioner and really appreciate your encouraging words:)

Yes, surprising that it is so competitive. I think there is money to be made...there are many reiki associations, which certain people follow depending on their reiki line. A niche within a niche.
I think your site will do you well, your articles answered some questions I had, which is why I purchased the Kindle book.

Question, is the kindle app free? Or must I pay a subscription?

Thank you for your kind words as well...

Rudy

I believe that you can download it for free, Rudy! I have several books on Kindle and my customers have done it!

Good! Because I downloaded the kindle app..then received an email from Amazon telling me about the Kindle subscription. Was hoping I didn't have to buy into their subscription, not unlike Apple and itunes...
Thanks, Jeff. Now with my new specs, I can easily read books from my phone...

I'm pretty sure, I am right, Rudy, unless Jeff Bozos changed things! I know to read peoples e-books for free on the Kindle lending library, you need to be an Amazon Prime member, but other than that, I don't think there is a subscription fee for kindle!

No Rudy, Kindle app is totally free and you also get a 30-day free subscription to Kindle Unlimited. Thus you have access to 2 Million books.
You can always upgrade to KU after 30 days but even if you don't, you have access to 100,000 free Kindle books:)
I am awaiting your Amazon review:)

Congratulations Jivita.
What an incredible achievement on Women's Day !!
Wishing all the best for the success of your first book.
Now the book is published, why don't you release the audio book in your own voice. Many people like me prefer for the audio books while evening walk or going for sleep. This read will be a great choice. Just an Idea.
Warm Regards,
Gaurav Gaur

Thanks, Gaurav, for your kind words.

I came across Kindle accidentally, I had not planned it. I know you can go for other formats also like Kindle paperback and audiobooks.
But every format has its own learning curve. I may publish a paperback format, but publishing for Kindle is quite easy.

In paperback, you need to format it a totally different way, taking into consideration book pages, spine, and so on.

You are right today audiobooks are quite popular, need a lot of research on my part:))

Regards,
jivita

I have several books out on Kindle, and am just getting started on trying to do the paperback versions--not very user friendly on that side, but what do I know!

JrzyGrlBJ (Barbara) just successfully did her paperback. If you have any trouble, you could PM her!

Thanks Jeff, You are right, paperback needs a different kind of settings altogether.

Will Pm Barbara:)

I figured out that one you upload your cover and manuscript again in the paperback setting and then do your preview, you can ask them to set it up for you if it doesn't happen to fit quite right. Then you can preview it again, hit submit, and wait to see if it is accepted!
