I've experimented with the Amazon Kindle publishing program and have only sold about 2 ebooks with it. This is a program that allows writers to publish their works for free and earn a commission based on a royalty agreement with Amazon. What doe we mean by Amazon Kindle? It simple refers to the electronic device sold by Amazon that allows people to read ebooks, watch movies and do a lot of stuff they normally prefer to do with mobile devices but more interestingly.

Testimonies: Let's testify
You know Nigerians like to be inspired by testimonies so I think it is best to first of all give you guys a bit of some success stories of writers who make millions of naira yearly from the Amazon Kindle publishing program.

Amanda Hockings:
This is a young fiction write who writes mostly for Kindle although some of here books are also coming out as paperbacks. She didn't start successfully as she has already written a novel but was unable to get a major publisher to sign her up. It was only when she decided to raise a little money by selling it as an ebook that she found out that she didn't really need to get signed up by traditional publishers. She found out that she could make millions of dollars just from creative writing and publishing with Amazon's Kindle.

4 things about Amanda Hockings success story
- She just writes and uploads to Amazon's kdp
- She doesn't need to do the selling herself
- She didn't need a website to sell
- Writes a single ebook that sells many times without additional costs

And she has made millions of dollars even though she initially just wanted only $300 for a trip to hussle for a publishing deal.

What to do to start selling your own ebook with Amazon
It is free to join and as long as you can write:
- Just go to kdp.amazon.com and sign up for an account
- Write your ebook in acceptable format
- Create an attractive e-cover or cover page that relates to what your ebook is about
- Upload it to your account
- Publish it to amazon marketplace by configuring some settings including your royalty agreement.
- Now you can sit back and let your published work do the selling for you
- You can always monitor reports of sales in your account and when you reach the minimum payment limit, you will be paid.

Conclusion
So if you can write books or know people who have an interest in writing, you can help them publish their books online using the Kindle Publishing program and earn money if it is popular and based on your royalty agreement.

Have you written any book yet? If you have, then get it in manuscript form and open an account at kdp.amazon.com. From there you can upload it and sell it to the world at your price

For Nigerians, you can get paid through foreign cheque which you can pay into a domiciliary account. By the time more Nigerians get into the program, they may also start offering direct bank wires. You can also get bank wire if you have a US bank account and Payoneer allows you to do this.
