This is particularly possible due to the self-publishing facilities that Amazon has provided for its customers.
Due to this service, various writers have made their mark on the book writing arena. Julie Taylor is one such writer who has, till now, published three ebooks with the names of “We Love the 70s”, ‘Collars and Catwalks’ and ‘Patrick Hatrick and Other Football Scorers’.
These books were published by the Amazon publishing platform. According to Julie, it was quite easy to understand the Amazon platform and the only real problem was to write all the material from old notes into the world document in order to get it published from Amazon.
During the promotion process, Julie allowed her readers to download her books without any cost for a couple of days and she was overwhelmed by the number of books that was downloaded during those two days. Now that the books are back to their original price, the downloading process still continues. Julie has been satisfied with her writings so far and intends to become a fulltime novelist soon.
For Julie, making a fortune from writing is not important and what actually matters is the quality of the content. She said that she would love to earn sufficient money from royalties to stay at home as a bookworm and a writer.
Kindle services were launched by Amazon in 2007 and the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) service allowed independent writers to have their work published. One does not need to have any kind of technical background to complete the entire process and all you need is a computer, a good internet connection and a basic knowledge of Microsoft Word.
You can also upload the virtual front cover of your eBook to improve the offering.
At present, Julie works at Hopwood Service Station just off the M42.
However, she has said that she would love to leave her job and become a full time writer. A few of her other books are expected to be launched by the end of May.
