Is there a book inside you? Do you have some special knowledge through your profession, a hobby, or a life experience that can help someone else? If you can help someone solve a problem, relieve a pain, or provide a solution to get ahead – you’ve got a book ready to be published! That goes for fiction writers too. If you have a great story to tell, the Kindle could be a fantastic way to get started in the dynamically changing world of publishing.
