If you haven’t heard about Amazon’s new platform - Kindle Vella this summer, I have to believe you’ve been living in a cave.
Late spring Amazon debuted this new platform for readers. The readers pay for each chapter instead of a whole book. The author submits chapters, daily, weekly, or monthly. This isn’t a new concept; a few other platforms offer it. Amazon decided to get into the game. They give you 200 tokens for free. You can read a few books with them before you have to buy more.
I decided to try my hand at creating a book this way. I visited the site and was surprised to see they had nonfiction books right along with the fiction books. This was great for me because I wanted to write a new nonfiction book and thought this platform would be perfect for it.
Amazon ask that you commit to ten episodes – chapters. I thought that shouldn’t be too hard to do.
I outlined my chapters and submitted my first three chapters for Building Your Readership – How To Become A Social Butterfly.
Then I got crickets for the first week.
I decided to up my promotion game and created a few Tic Tok and IG Reels videos to see if I could get in front of some readers.
The next week I got a few readers.
I will admit that it’s hard-to-get people over to look at the episodes because it’s a new platform and you know how we are about new platforms. However, I’m going to continue promoting and writing my episodes until I reach my 10-episode goal.
If you haven’t stopped by Kindle Vella, I highly recommend you go check it out. There are some interesting stories on the platform. You might surprise yourself and find something you like.
