    Hey fellows,

    I am new to this forum but I have been into internet marketing for many years and during all these years, I literally tried everything and jumped on to every shiny object I could see. I got into CPA, Google Adsense, Facebook, Instagram, Shopify and you just name it. But three years back, I stumbled onto Amazon Kindle as I saw one of the videos of Stefan James, the man behind Kindle Money Mastery, and I was amazed to see the six-figure income he makes almost nearly on autopilot every month.

    Well, no one can say no to passive income, that too which is so huge! I immediately started compiling information from the internet and started publishing books on Kindle platform. I started getting sales as the competition was less tough at that time but soon the sales started declining due to bad reviews as most of the information in the books wasn't helpful. I was writing on topics like How to Quit Smoking or How to Lose Weight Fast. The information on such topics is flooded freely on the internet and no one wants to buy them.

    So I started learning after a year or so that for the short-term, this strategy would make me some money but in order to generate passive income, I will have to publish proper and professional books such as novels. I love reading novels so I tried writing a novel myself and since then it is published there with the addition of four more novels I have written in the past two years.

    The result turned out to be average, not really good, as it is just generating me around $250-$300 a month as royalties but hey, it is on auto-pilot and totally passive as after publishing them, I haven't promoted them in any way. I just log into my account every month to check the reports and I get paid at the end of every month via EFT in my bank account.

    So now, I have saved $1500 and with that, I am going to hire two freelance native writers who can write me novels in my genres and then I would hire a designer on Fiverr to design me the book graphics and covers so I can publish two more high-quality books in my catalog.

    Then, just yesterday, I saw this thread on BHW forum which promises guaranteed real downloads via their promotion, and it looks really lucrative so I have decided to give it a try. They have promised me a ROI of more than 400% which is way too good.

    So today, God willing, I will hire two writers who can come up with great novels for me. I have already posted the gig on my favorite freelancing site.

    Guys, please wish me luck and be my strength as this is my first journey to making big money online!

    PS. I will try updating the thread on regular basis.

    Interesting journey!
    Are you going to do any kind of advertising what so ever for the upcoming novels though?
    I mean, if you're not writing them yourself, you have some spare time to promote your novels.

    Good luck with your journey!

    Thank you mate! I plan to use a Kindle Book Ranking service on BHW for books promotion - Let's see where it takes me from $300 a month.

    UPDATE

    So I invested $1200 of my $1500... Woah it is a big investment for me so I hope it stays positive for me! Hired two native English speakers on a freelancing website to write me one novel each for $600 - So now comes the waiting period but I discussed the book title and storyline so I am also going to place the orders for book graphics and covers on Fiverr very soon. Fingers crossed.

    UPDATE

    At $40 each, the graphic designer would make me professional book covers and graphics for the two novels so now I am waiting for completion of work at both ends of the writers as well as the designer. Will keep you all updated and myself motivated.

    PS. With $1200 and $80 expenses - I am left with $220 out of my $1500 budget which is just perfect as I needed $209 to order the Dominator Package of the Kindle Book Ranking service on BHW.

    Nice journey. How long are these novels? How much will you sell them for?

    I am targeting an average length of 80,000-100,000 words for each novel.

    So the writers basically charged $0.60 for 100 words? Tbh mate don't be surprised if they aren't native. A lot of people say they are but if they charge that much they can't be.

    If they are however can you PM me their profile? I would have a lot of work for them!

    Yes it is a very good rate I am getting and I have extensively verified their writing samples and past work experiences. For now, I would like to be discrete with my selection of freelancers.

    Hey mate,

    Are you using createspace as well? I'm generating more with physical copies than I am with ebooks currently. Are you planning to go kindle exclusive or broaden your sales channels? I recommend draft2digital for multi channel distribution.

    Best of luck!

    I haven't tried CreateSpace ever but might give it a try in the future once I get done with publishing their soft copies.

    Keep it up bro. I have a fierce passion in writing novel too but it's suck that i'm not native english speaker so i would not make anything good out of it. Good luck on your journey.

    Thank you brother - You can always hire a good writer if you are unable to write yourself for any reason or you can publish books on non-fiction topics which are easier to write!
