iPads, smartphones and yes, Kindles) so your global market is huge!

Considering Amazon is the ultimate selling machine (and remember people
are looking to spend), that is a fantastic deal.
key to success with eBooks is to create value, and write non-fiction.
Simply bundling information you have researched and complied on a common
problem (eg. ‘secrets’ to finding a job) and then presenting it in an
easy to digest format (an eBook) justifies someone spending a few quid
Another big tip is to have a great cover designed so it stands out,
and once your book is live on the Kindle store it’s really important to
get some reviews so it shows up higher in results. Encourage readers to
leave an honest review at the end of your book.
The best thing about this lucrative idea is that once you’ve invested the time (say 20 hours), you’ll earn a passive income for years to come! For a step-by-step guide to publishing and earning with eBooks, see “How to write a nonfiction eBook in 21 days“.
