Kindle Kash was released July 2011, and unlike many other “how to
earn money with Kindle” ebooks, it is a complete guide on the
process of publishing and earning with Kindle.
It is written by Nick Daws
(author of Quick Cash Writing and Write Any Book in
29 Days, and co-author of the extremely popular book for writers, The
Wealthy Writer), and many other books.
Daws is a prolific writer and has more books published than I thought possible. (He’s said to be the most prolific author in the UK.)
Kash is 139
pages long, and broken down into easy-to-read sections. But it’s not one of those books filled with
fluff. Like all of Daws books, it’s filled with useful and
everything you would ever need to know to plan, write, edit, publish, and subsequently, promote your money-making
Kindle ebook, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction.
As with all his courses Daws has provided clear and easy to follow information. If you follow
his practical advice and step-by-step instructions, you will quickly have your own Kindle ebook

Kindle Kash is an excellent book, and in my
opinion, is aimed specifically at writers. Many of the “make money
with Kindle” books and/or programs around are aimed more at internet marketers. (And are often hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.)
difference is that most internet marketers are looking for short cuts. They don’t want to write an entire book themselves. They don’t want to spend a
lot of time on research either.
them are using PLR to write their books.
know what PLR is? Basically it’s ‘raw’ writing they’ve paid
for. They buy the rights and can do what they like with it. More than
anything, it’s a short-cut to get a book out quickly. But often it’s
poorly written, and the quality just isn’t there in the majority of cases. And now, Amazon is rejecting those
books written with PLR.)
So as a
writer, you already have a head start on these people.
I didn’t like:
very little I didn’t like, but there were a couple of things.
thing I didn’t like was the table of contents – it’s not clickable.
What that means in real terms is if I want to go to a specific section I either have to scroll through
everything or do a search to locate it.
banging on about this with this publisher, and they continue to do it. <sigh>
sure they do it to stop people jumping to particular sections without reading the entire book.
said before in my reviews, the publisher needs to understand that some people will want to bypass some parts of
the book. (Yep, that’s usually me!)
thing I found was the pdf page numbers and the actual book page numbers didn’t match. This could be because I’m in Australia and we have a different page format to
most other countries, but I’m not sure. (So maybe you should just
disregard this altogether!!)
these are pretty minor, and don’t detract from the content provided, but I felt I needed to tell you about

Questions I’ve been asked via
Q) As you
offered a discount for Kindle Kash, does that mean I don’t get the bonuses shown on the sales page?
Absolutely not! All bonuses shown on the sales page are applicable to
everyone. The fact I’ve been able to negotiate a discount does not
detract anything from the offer. (Except some dollars!)
Kindle Kash suitable for both fiction and non-fiction writers?
it’s suitable for both, but won’t tell you how to write a piece of fiction. It certainly goes into all other
aspects of publishing your fiction - and non-fiction - on Kindle.
suggest if you need help with your fiction writing, you check out some of my books on writing, or some of Daws other books, such as Novel
in a Month, or Write any book in Under 28 Days.
