Writing a novel: My first experience

My first experience with writing a novel was an exciting one. I have always written Christian non fictions (Christian Personal Development books).

But after I read an interesting novel about the civil war in my country (can’t really remember the name of the novel now), I just rise to start writing my first Christian novel using the experience and noted I made from that novel.

Then, I completed my first Christian novel, Wealth Codes. Well, after this, I took further steps to write more.

Then, I wrote my bestselling Christian romance novel, The Prostitute. An interesting Christian fiction you need to read.

How to predict your book sales on Amazon store

You have that book idea and just before you go ahead to execute it, you already know what the potential sales outcome of the book will be.

That will be great and I believe many authors will love that. It’s possible to find out the potential sales of your book before you publish it.

Do you know that…

Publishing companies know how to predict book sales

Many publishing companies employ this book idea validation tactic to develop an idea of what to expect in the book market, and also to decide on books and authors they can sign.

 

Dave Chesson lay out the book idea validation plan

Dave Chesson of KindlePreneur laid out the strategy to predict the potential book sales before publication.

He wrote on his blog:

“Imagine they have Book A and Book B. Using today’s article’s information, they can have a better predictability on which one will fare better in the market.”

He also added:

“Plus, this is an incredible process that self-published authors should use to help decide what to expect from Amazon sales.”

Selling eBooks as online courses

Selling eBooks as online courses is one of the most profitable ventures for authors today. If you have been publishing and selling ebooks on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and other online stores, you may have to look at selling your ebooks as online courses.

I will be using this post to share our experiences with you so that you can get motivated and inspired to try this out. I will be using a future post to share the steps by steps process of turning your eBooks into online courses

Related:  How I publish books on Amazon KDP 

 

Selling eBooks as online courses: Our experience

We decided to start turning some of our books into online courses to sell online in our bid to diversify our earnings and to ensure Amazon does not remain the only platform we sell books.

Related: 10 places to publish your ebooks online  

Other formats of ebooks

First, you should know your published ebooks can exist in many forms other than ebooks or paperback books.

Ebooks can be packaged as:

  • Videos
  • Online courses
  • Podcasts
  • Blogs etc.

So we are still talking about books when we talk about online courses.

 

Selling eBooks as online courses: Udemy

We started with the biggest platform for online courses online – udemy.com

What a platform this has been for us. This is the Amazon for online courses online. We started about three years or so and we have drawn some passive income from this platform even without paid ads.

We can still push this up with ads though. It’s just that we don’t know the right place to advertise courses on Udemy. I am not a big fan of Facebook ads.

I have also received some emails from those who took our online courses on udemy.com offering ads services. We have not used any of them.

 

What Udemy gives you

The truth is that Udemy gives extra promotions to the courses on its platform. Though, if you sell any course through their self-sponsored ads, you will receive a lower royalty.

Selling eBooks as online courses: 10 published courses

Selling eBooks as online courses

We now have about 10 online courses on this platform. We have lots of enrolled students and reviews on our online courses at Udemy.

The good news is that Udemy now pays by Payoneer. It used to be by PayPal alone. So you have another payment option to consider.

 

Other Udemy alternatives

There are other Udemy alternatives to sell online courses online but a lot are not reliable. We tried some of them but our experience with some is not too good at all.

Learndesk.us for example was a bad experience. You should watch out for that. The CEO, Vivien Puri is deceitful.

We canceled our account and up till today, Learndesk has failed to pay our royalties. When we applied for the cancelation of our account, we were told that our royalties will be paid after one year!

We waited and it’s over one and a half years now, Puri and Learndesk have stopped responding to our emails. Please avoid Learndesk as much as possible.

How to create an online course

I know the question on your mind now is how do I create an online course and how do I publish it on Udemy?

Really we have not done an ebook or an online course on this but we hope to do it very very soon. We will even do a post on it.

Bugs on Amazon KDP

There are recent issues of bugs on Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) and I believe this should interest every Kindle Direct Publishing author.

Bugs on Amazon KDP: What are bugs?

Bugs are, in computer technology, coding errors in a computer program. A computer program is the microcode that is manufactured into a microprocessor.

Usually, a process of dubugging is carried out by the software owner before the users of the software find out the errors in the software. Dubugging is therefore the process of finding bugs.

 

Why you should be interested as an Amazon KDP author

Authors on Amazon KDP should understand the situation with bugs on Amazon KDP and find out what they should be doing.

Naturally, anytime there are glitches of the types we are seeing recently in the world’s largest bookseller, KDP authors tend to get a little nervous.

How Jeff Bezos and Amazon started

 

Bugs on Amazon KDP: What’s happening?

According to a report monitored on the Kindlepreneur blog, the following represent the bugs that have been noticed so far on Amazon KDP:

  1. Some prices are increasing for no reason (while the author still gets the lesser royalties)
  2. Some books are not appearing in their chosen categories, even if Amazon says they are
  3. There has been a rise in terminated accounts

Is this happening to all Amazon KDP authors?

Just before you hit the panic button as an Amazon KDP author, read the cheering news from the Kindlepreneur blog:

Now, this isn’t happening for everyone, but there is a definite trend among the feedback we’ve been receiving, and the data we’re seeing in Publisher Rocket.

 

What can you do as a KDP author?

You should understand that there may be other bugs apart from the ones reported by the Kindlepreneur blog. You should be on the watch over your Amazon KDP account.

If you notice any glitch, you can always get in touch with the ever-reliable Amazon KDP support via email or phone call. They will be ready to help you.

In the meantime, you should read an article on the Kindlepreneur blog to get more information about this problem. The article will show you how you can identify the bugs, and ways to solve them if your book falls victim.
