Amazon Kindle is the platform which gave authors the opportunity to share their knowledge and creativity with the rest of the world.

Create and Outline


You need to create an outline of your e-book: This is the most important step involved if you want to become a writer on Amazon Kindle in order to successfully publish your book. This is a step which almost every writer follows. Creating an outline of your e-book will help you in many ways, such as, you don’t have to approach the whole book at a time rather you can break it up into small sections and approach it accordingly. Many amateur writers think or believe that in order to make their e-book successful, they need to add hundreds of pages. However this concept is way away from the actual truth. To be very honest, the best selling e-books on Amazon Kindle only contain less than 50 pages. Learning how to become a writer on Amazon Kindle is fairly easy, especially if you follow the "outline" every single time.

Don't limit your writing potential

This is a common mistake every amateur writer makes. You can write about anything you want to, after all - it’s your e-book. It can vary from romance fiction to a thriller, politics to home improvement, children's stories and so on. You must feel comfortable and free to write anything you want to and let your creativity flow. Learning how to become a writer on Amazon Kindle is easy but first you need to focus on creativity and quality of your book.

Stay on topic

Try to avoid jabbering: This is yet another major mistake most of the amateur writers make. In order to make their content heavy, they just put fluff in their contents. Readers find it quite irritating. Nobody wants to read fluff. You can lower the price of your e-book for lesser no. of pages but try to avoid adding fluff. People don’t want to buy a book that they could of wrote themselves for a considerable amount of money.

Always add a table of contents

This is a very vital step in creating a successful e-book. It becomes very easy to access an e-book, if it contains a table of contents. Regardless of whatever you publish, nonfiction or a fiction, it must have a table of contents. It’s not even a tedious job, all you need is to add the chapter name with the page no. it begins with. It actually helps the readers to navigate to any section they want to. They don’t have to go through all the pages to find something specific in the book. Most authors have searched articles online on how to become a Amazon Kindle writer and almost always - tables are required. Without a table, you might get a few negative reviews because the reader cannot find something that they are looking for in the book. Try to make it easy as possible for them.
