Make a Killing on Kindle

Michael Alvear

Alvear explodes a number of myths, and argues that an author does not need a platform in order to successfully sell on Kindle.

On the same lens, I have also reviewed How I Sold 1 Milliion Ebooks by John Locke.  He describes how he successfully sells novels on Kindle.  

I have recently learned that he paid people to review his books before publication, which he does not mention in How I Sold 1 Milliion Ebooks.  Still, I think it's worth reading.
