Hey everyone. Ok, I wrote a nice book to put out (enough to split it into 2 books), and I had a few questions about releasing it on kindle: 1.) Do you still think fiction is still profitable? I mean my book is not very long, but not very short either, and I am by no means an expert or professional writer. I just have a nice book, had some revisions from others and had someone edit it, and I have it formatted pretty decent for Kindle. I am not sure to release all my books at once, or just release 1 (I have only one that I can split into 2), and see how the sales go the first month? Then I can see if I want to release part 2. 2.) Do you have to do a ton of marketing to make your book hit the top of the list? I am thinking about doing some marketing for it (post in forums, email, join boards), but I am not sure what types of sites to hit up, or should I just stick to doing some SEO (can you help me out)? 3.) Where is a good place to get a decent cover that is not cheap, nor will break my bank either? People say fiverr, but I wonder if someone will do a quality cover that will attract many visitors for $5 lol? 4.) How much does amazon take per sale? For example if I release my book for $4.99, or $3.99, how much do I take, depending if I join the kdp program where I get 70% I believe (are there any other fees involved)? 5.) How were you sales like when you first released your book? Did you release one, or a lot at once? I am just trying to get an idea. I want to make money, but at the same time, I don't want to release crap and get a negative review. 6.) Any other advice you can give or prepare me for? This is my first time releasing a book on there, and I'm trying to read some wso's or just get an idea, but if you can recommend any particular wso or anything, thanks. Thank you for reading!
