Imagine if you had twice as many book sales... how would that make you feel? What would you do with all your extra profits?

Statistically, all you would need to do to more than double your sales if you only have a physical book right now is to publish it on Kindle. If you don't know how to publish an ebook yet, read The Kindle Publishing Bible.

How to Quickly Explode Your Sales on Kindle

In this book, you'll learn how one author went from 347 sales in January, 2011 to over 400,000 sales by the end of the year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth $2.99 April 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this book. I thought that for $2.99 it would be short and it was but I felt like the reviews of it - especially the 5 star ones were somehow paid for. I got very little if anything out of this book. It felt like it was designed to make money from a day of work. I wouldn't mind that but it lacked substance. This could have been a great book if some time was spent compiling some information. It is a great title and great premise.

I don't believe I've ever given a 1 star review before and I hate to do it but I can't get over that I didn't find any substance in the book.

I'm totally disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars So how are average people like me earning? March 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book contains success stories, and it's always nice to read them. I got this book to see HOW they are succeeding, not just THAT they are. Very few of the success stories much information that anyone else can really act on.

1.0 out of 5 stars OK, but nothing special February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Few one or two-page interviews with published authors including interviews published on others' blogs. There seemed just as many pages of the author promoting his other books and products as there were 'success stories.' I wished I hadn't bought it even though it was only 99-cents. Really a poor product.

Success stories are told, but no useful details as to how they accomplished it. What is the secret of their successes?

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit cut short April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There comes a point where I thought this was going to give some actual advise but in the end it is true to its title, it is just success stories. If your looking for a guide on bow to write a book I suggest you start looking somewhere else. But if you're looking for some motivation then this is your book

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Success Stories - Tom Corson-Knowles March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book certainly delivers on its promise - it does provide numerous real-life case studies. The author also reveals, through his careful placement of his own links at the end, an easy way to market your other books and services from within the book. Several of the success stories were about authors who had already been successful before creating their Kindle book. They had also used some careful marketing strategies. I would have liked to learn more about the actual strategies used, not just a taste of what is possible with little idea of how to actually achieve a similar result.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read like an infomercial... March 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did enjoy this book for the inspiration it provided me to write with the success stories of other Kindle authors. But beyond the inspirational stories there was very little of real substance in this book. This book mostly consisted of a half dozen success stories along with a lot of self-promotion by the author for his other products. All the makings of a great infomercial...

P.S. eBooks do indeed outsell physical books as many marketers, including this one, are quick to tell you. But they all fail to tell you the rest of the story. The total dollar volume of physical books still blows ebooks away! You do the math: 115 ebooks sales at $1 each does not surpass 100 physical books sales at $10 each. Ebooks are a rising star but they are not where the bulk of the money is spent at yet.
