How to Create a Best-Seller on Amazon Kindle

By Britt Malka | Writing

Write a Kindle bestseller

I guess making a best-seller is a two step process:

1. Give people what they want.
2. Tell them about it.

That's the simple part.

But first you have to figure out what they want.

How do you find out?

Well, you can ask them through surveys. You can study other best-sellers in the genre. Or you can give them your texts for free and see what people think about them. (That's the approach the author of 50 Shades took as well as author Scott Siegler.)

And how do you tell them about it?

By having a great cover and a description that makes people want to buy.

And by showing them your book, either because you were a clever author who build a list of subscribers. Or because you use social media. Or you pay for ads.

There you have it.

Oh, and story counts, too. More than grammar and spelling.Continue reading

Soon: My First Novella Published

By Britt Malka | Upcoming Books

Somewhere deep down inside myself, I never thought that day would happen.

I wanted to write a novel, but most of the time it was just a faint dream. And the few times I did something about it, I wrote a couple of chapters and then hated my work.

If it hadn't been for a course I stumbled upon, I probably would still be dreaming.

Allow me to present the cover for my first novella:

Tina Adams has created this cover, and she's really worked on the details. You'll understand when you read the story.

The story takes place in 1851 in Texas, and it's a romantic cozy mystery.

Actually, it's the prelude to a series that takes place in modern age, and I've written nine out of the 12 chapters of the first book in that series.

What do you think?
