$500 While I Slept

I just checked my Amazon publishing account and my little book of jokes made just under $500 in royalties for the past month. No big deal, but it's totally passive income and, as I'm in Australia and virtually all the purchases were in the US and the UK, it was literally while I slept.

Now I realize that while this is to do with making money on the internet, but not specifically to do with WA, it might be regarded as off-topic.

So I'm looking for some guidance here.

If it's of interest to my fellow WA members and allowed by the moderators, I'd be happy to create a course on becoming a published author on Amazon and make it freely available on WA.

Let me know if that would be OK.

Well done on your income from Amazon. All success stories, whether they be monetary or otherwise are welcomed here as they inspire people to see what is possible.

I think the idea of a Kindle course sounds awesome.

Thanks, Jon.

I would be interested in this training. I don’t think it would be off topic as a book on Amazon could be used as an incentive on a blog or could be another way of monetizing a blog. Thanks for sharing.

Working on it soon.

Congratulations. I'm in! Thanks for sharing, Phil!

Thanks. I'll start working on it soon.

Congrats! I'd appreciate the training.

Good. Thanks.

Hey, it seems a great idea!

Although I can't write in my sleep quite yet ;) I'd appreciate the training.

well done! Marc

I don't write in my sleep, Marc, I just earn in my sleep (which is much better).

My promise of training seems to have been well received. Hey, maybe I'll publish it to Amazon as well as make it freely available on WA.

That is a great idea! Double the exposure

I would be interested

Thanks. All the replies have been positive so far.

Wow, I would be super interested in what you have offer as far as a course. $500 in royalties is just the beginning. Good luck and I can't wait to see your future progress updates!

3 votes for the course so far!

Firstly, how do you get a publishing account on Amazon?

I'd rather set all this out in a properly thought out and illustrated course but to answer your question, go to https://kdp.amazon.com and sign in or sign up there. kdp stands for Kindle Direct Publishing but it's where you publish both e-books and paperbacks.

Thanks Phil. I'm looking forward to your course.

Well done to you sir. 500 dollars while you sleep, you officially have my follow

Thanks, Doug. That's 2 votes for me to create the training.

That would be so AWESOME!!
Would love to learn that!
