    So I've been reading about kindle on this forum for a little bit now and have seen others achieve great results using the Kindle Promotion Service advertised on this forum.
    After talking to the promotion support team and inquiring as to How they provide their service as well as messaging some member on here that have used them I have decided to take the plunge into kindle!

    I have hired a member from upwork to write me a novel for me to publish. The novel will be around 25,000 words long and it cost me $150.
    I know this is cheap but I really am on a shoestring here!
    The writer did seem pretty good and is apparently a university educated student in australia. Let's wait and see how the book turns out quality wise! I am expecting it's delivery in around about 1 weeks time.

    My next steps would be to upload the book to kindle and order the promotion service.

    I'll try and update this thread as frequently as I can with updates regularly!

    Small update!

    I have placed an order with aftercodes for a non fiction ebook due to the discount they had available. It only worked out at $49 and I received it a couple hours ago.
    The book was really good! It was 180 PDF pages long and so would probably translate to 400+ kindle pages! For $49 it's a steal and it was in good english! I will publish proof of payment for the book as well soon!

    I will upload this to kindle and order a dominator package for this also as soon as it goes live!

    What its going to happen is you get a bump in sales (not much) and then nobody will ever see your book again.

    It is really interesting this method and I think it is not massively crowded. I will be following your journey since I would like to give it a try in some months. Expect a lot of questions then! ;)

    That is probably a pretty good niche for Kindle... I'm hoping you kill it there.
