    Hello,
    I have a question, although I know not as many ppl do the kindle publishing thing, but hopefully the few that do can shed a little help and light as I'm now in the process of scaling up.

    1. Would you just create your own competition by creating new pen names in the same genre
    OR
    Just continue to expand making books in the same genre under the same pen name

    At this time, I don't think I can do both, without spreading myself to thin. When I am making more and have the investment money to be all Vince McMahon about it and do both, then I will. For now, wondering which is the 'better' route.


    2. Mailchimp - at the END or beginning of book.
    Although at first guess I would say the beginning, I'd think it comes off as too spammy.

    3. Do you do PRINT versions for all your books - or just the one's that 'sell' well? Interestingly enough I found that one book that I had which was selling a bit poorly (by my standards) was/is actually selling steadily with print. So that kinda skewed what I thought I "knew" about print versions of the books. (yes, we live in a day and age, where print comes AFTER digital) At least the publishing business got it right (take note music industry). Or at least Amazon did.

    4. I have never really kept track of teh KENP thing. But since this month my KENP deal has multiplied like 10 fold. My books aren't that long though. I always only really looked at that red line (sales). I guess this isn't really a question. i'm just wondering if I'm making more profit from my sales or my rise in KENP.

    5. Best wishes for 2016.

    Pen Names Is used if you go to write a lot of books in short time so every topic put a pen name.
    Mailchimp is at beginning of book.
    If you can print it all do it but for me I just print the one that sell. there are more said to me I need to print it is all but I am not doing it yet.
    well about your point number 4 some time you are not sell like other some you sell like crazy and some you not.
    if you make it as your job like me you have to work weekly every 3 days finish a new book it will not take time from you really but you will get a lot of books that sell well in the end
    I am not earn a lot of money from it but I wish some day I earn a lot

    Hmm, good point.
    I've noticed that out of all my books in the top 5,000 or so, this week, only one of them sold any print. And at other times, they'd sell slightly behind the ebook version.

    Very interesting!!

    Mailchimp in the end of the book. You don't want to come off as spammy. Also, there is a way higher chance of people signing up when they read your book and know that you deliver quality work.
