The Kindle global fund is a mystery to most authors.
Today I worked with a brilliant eighty-four year old gentleman. He can't understand why his really wonderful science books for children are not being snapped up by educators.
Dr. Robert Krupp is still teaching college on the internet. amzn.to/2qr3Pki
He has published five books for children ages PK - 12. My seven year old grandson loves the books and has done several of the experiments in them. What child wouldn't like making green slime?
Bob thought that all his books were already on kindle. In reality only one was. Some how he missed the last step and four of his books were sitting there as drafts.
We managed to finish publishing all his books on Kindle and now he can proceed to get his share of the kindle Global fund.
What is the Kindle Global Fund? It's free money from Amazon for every page that is read of your book on kindle.
You have to send your book out to the world and wait for readers to download the kindle and then read the book. You want to post your book were the readers are. You might have a couple hundred Facebook Friends but you have to find those places that have thousands of readers. Sounds simple right? Not so fast.
My novel Broken Branches amzn.to/2jy5zFg was a best seller on Amazon kindle with over 650 downloads. The problem is that a down load can just sit there and not get read for ages if at all.
How do I get readers to actually read the book they down load? If anyone out there has an answer please let me know. For all you out there that store all those downloads, get reading and help us struggling authors out.
I don't even have a kindle reader. I still love a real book in my hands.
By the way I now have a boxed set of my first two books in the Green Lady Inn series.
