Calling all 'Amazon' published Authors

Last Update: May 27, 2018

Hi there,

Wealthy Affiliate attracts people from all over the world in many different niches. I have got a blog on here which lists all the 'kiwis' here on WA and I'd love to compile a list of published authors into this post as well. You never know, just like the give and take thread here on WA, we might be able to collaborate on projects and support each other in our book writing effort.

So, if you're a published author with book on Amazon, I invite you to add your details in the comments below. Feel free to include the name of your book too :)

Oh, and by the way, congratulations on writing, editing and publishing a book. That is a testament to your stickability and perserverance. If you can do that with success, then there's NOTHING to stop you being a successful affiliate marketer! Go get em!!

Cheers, Karen


ps. Feel free to upload a picture of your book cover when you reply on this thread. It will be interesting to see what a diverse bunch we are and what topics we write about.

pps. It goes without saying that you should NOT include any affiliate links or other in your reply.

I didn't know this post existed.
I have 3 Kindle Books on Amazon.
They're all golf instruction tutorials based around the short game.
Be good to have some golf niche affiliates promoting them but the commission is obviously very low.
Here's a link to one:

Hi Karen,

I have published six books, including one children's book and five books in the self-help category.

The self-help books do well on other platforms but not on Amazon (just a tip to self-published authors who are planning to publish only on Kindle).

Hello, Karen.

Although I have not published any books myself, and I doubt that I will, I have edited and proofread two of my daughter's three published works. She's now working on number four.

It's actually a trilogy, and although I am obviously a bit biased (she's my baby girl and my pride and joy), I think she did an exceptional job on them.

I know she does not qualify for your group, but I'd like to be included so as to take advantage of any tips and suggestions that others may have to offer. That way, I can help her out as much as I can. She has already sold a good number of her books on Amazon, but I know she could do better.

I am helping her build her own dot-com website that is being hosted at WA. She is not yet a member, but I hope to change that.

If you don't think this is a good idea, I will understand and no hard feelings. Either way, I am excited for the group.

Continued success,

Joshua

You started a fire, Karen! I went through all the answers below and I am impressed at what talent lies within the community. This is really a wonderful initiative and I believe there will be more of us coming to the fore. Others may be encouraged to start writing books, even collaboratively.

I have a chapter in a book about higher education that I wrote very, very long time ago. Admission: It is so difficult for me to write because the self-criticism drives me to paralysis.

Thanks for your post.
Mojalefa.

Oh that's not good Mojalefa - you need to push through that self-criticism and get that book finished! You can do it... Best wishes, Karen

Thanks and have a lovely day.

Great idea, Karen. I believe, more authors will soon be listed.:)

I hope so... it's just a matter of winkling them out of the woodwork... (not sure if that's the right phrase, but I know what I mean LOL). Cheers, Karen

great question Karen.
I've authored articles and a book chapter (long time ago).
will you publish the results of your poll?
Reply
kdforsman Premium
Hi Steven, Not sure exactly what I'm polling, but yes, that's a great idea... what do you reckon, should I do a poll to see how many are writing non-fiction/fiction, or break it down even further? Look foward to your thoughts on that. Cheers, Karen
Reply
Steven-A Premium
right now, it's good left open the way you have it and see what the response is. if you get a lot of responses (50+), then maybe a real poll which you can break down by categories

Thanks Steven :)

Okay, so my book is Fraud & Fabrication - a contemporary drama and 'complete fiction' of course!! ;)

Hi Karen, I will be looking for your book too, for bed time reading and for those lazy days or on a flight somewhere far.

All the best
