First Time Kindle Author Mistakes to Avoid


Are you a kindle author? Here are some mistakes you can avoid whether you are a beginner or a intermediate Kindle Publisher writer:

You must learn how to use and write with a tool called scrivener which is considered to be the best tool for authors. It is used by the likes of Tim Ferris. It makes adding pages, page numbers, paragraphs, titles and images easy with the help of shortcuts. You will waste very little time on formatting and publishing with this state of the art tool.

It is not recommended to use or insert tables in your book. Kindle devices are not good enough when displaying tables on the screen. They often get messed up and end up displaying on multiple pages in a haphazard way.

If you are distributing advance copies of your book before you publish your work on Kindle, make sure to remind your readers to mention this fact in their reviews. This will help in the marketing campaigns because every reader is being advised to look for reviews from readers who have access to advance copies.

You will need to work for around 12 to 14 hours a day for at least 2 weeks from the day you publish your work. You need to keep this in mind and get yourself comfortable with the idea of working overtime. Some of the activities you will need to do includes final edits, publishing, marketing, social media interaction, blogging and more. You need to create a buzz and get as many eye balls as possible on your book if you want it to be a success.

Amazon also allows your book to be translated into an audio book. Currently, Amazon’s Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX) is available only in US and UK, so make sure you are prepared for the same.
