Hi Tony Thanks, yes I will certainly be doing more. Also I am thinking of creating hard copy versions via createspace, it seems I may be 'leaving money on the table'. BTW I have been following a new podcast the sell more books show, members here may enjoy it.

Thanks for sharing Roy. It's great to hear about different niches where folks are having success. Are the plans for you to get some more out there in the near future?

I tellya! Picture type books for kindle are on the up! My Son just released his photography book, doing really well. We are becoming a publishing family! My blog post about the process is on here. fyi my sons book is here, and my main seller a book on loose watercolor is here. So just need to give you guys food for thought, huge opportunities! Also since the launch of Kindle Unlimited, the 'borrows' of my watercolor book have jumped from 1 or 2 a day to 7 or 8. Sales remain steady so it seems possible that ebooks at $2.99 or more attract the people who have KU (seems psychologically more value for their monthly fee, perhaps). And just to say it again,- a lot less words in a pictorial 'how to' type book!

Hello Everyone,

My friend Nick Pavlidis shared this deal earlier. There is an exclusive Fiverr deal on Groupon. I think it expires in 2 or 3 days time. You get to purchase 5$ for 25$ worth of services. 

The only thing you need to do is create a new Fiverr account through the Fiverr link on your Groupon coupon. The link to Groupon is below.


Share this info if you can. I will be posting this in other groups too.

Great show on launching a successful book on the Side Hustle podcast. http://www.sidehustlenation.com/engineering-20000-download-kindle-l...

I listened to this recently and thought of you DIY e-Publishers. If you are launching listen to Nick's strategy to get 20,000 downloads in 5 days.

Hey Tony, I've used them myself for several projects and have had favorable results. Thanks for sharing.

I have recently been testing out Fiverr.com for a number of services. In the last month I have hired 10 different folks for projects ranging anywhere from $5 to $410. 

As a self publisher you don't have to do everything yourself. Go to Fiverr search for someone who can do what you need. I have saved hours and in the process have been able to focus on serving our community.
