In this Kindle Spy review, you will learn how to write an eBook for free and sell it Online or sell it on Amazon. Hi there, I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to my blog and hope you will receive value within my tips on writing an eBook and all other information I am about to share with you.
My Kindle Spy Review on How to Write an eBook for Free and Sell it on Amazon
Let me start off by showing you how easy it is to write an eBook for free and sell it on Amazon, even if you live outside the US.
My name is Peter Mantu, born and currently living in the beautiful country of South Africa. If you would like to know more about me, simply visit the “About Peter Mantu” page within this blog.
What do I know about writing an eBook?
In short, I have already done it before without a single penny in my pocket and so can you. I am prepared to share my experience and the knowledge I gathered through my magnificent journey of finally publishing my own eBook Online. To be honest with you, the idea of writing and publishing my own eBook had never crossed my mind until a certain particular time when my life was literally turned upside down, and inside out. But that’s not the reason why you are here, you are here to learn how to write an eBook for free and sell it Online and I am here to help you do just that.
How and where do you start?
I have always liked to give this little but valuable piece of advice to many people, and you are obviously not an exception. Everything starts with YOU.
Allow me to reiterate more on this. You might not understand what I am about to share with you, but I promise that it will all make perfect sense if you simply apply it exactly as I have mentioned below. It’s much easier this way, besides; you wanted to know how to write an eBook for free and sell it Online right? This is the best free way of doing it.
What are YOU passionate about?
You might have already received many responses from others trying to give you advice on how to do this, telling you that you first need to come up with a topic before writing an eBook. I totally agree with them, but where does the topic come from? Do not look further than YOURSELF. This is the best way to start anything you want to do or achieve in your life, it doesn’t only apply to writing books. I promise that you can even use this method to start your very own business and make it a success. Write down your passion on a piece of paper, or simply start typing on your laptop this very instance. You’ll be surprised at how things tend to become more vivid as soon as you start putting one foot in front of the other. If you are only going to rely on thinking positive thoughts and talking to your friends about how you would love to write an eBook whilst doing NOTHING about it, you simply won’t get anywhere. Trust me, I know what I am talking about here, this is the same thing I do on a daily basis, the same thing I did before I started writing this post and now it’s published and you are reading it.
Your passion will automatically determine your audience and target market.
What length do you want your eBook to be?
I DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION ABOVE. NO ONE DOES BUT YOU.
If you truly understood the importance of writing about something you’re passionate about, then you should also understand why only you can decide on the length of your eBook. Really, I don’t know what you’re passionate about and I also have no clue what message you intend to convey in your eBook. What do I know about raising backyard chickens? Perhaps you do. 🙂
Start writing away now, going as far as only you will know is adequate enough.
Use Kindle Spy – Deciding on the Title of your eBook.
This is where Kindle spy comes into play. When you have a title in mind, make sure you research other titles already published on Amazon. Kindle Spy is here to help you with that.
Once again, this is your own choosing but my advice would be to choose a title that will stand out from the rest of competition. The title of my eBook is “Breaking the Maverick Code” which many people are still intrigued by. That’s the whole point and I know that it’ll serve its purpose. If your passion is raising backyard chickens, you might want to come up with a title which has a more “wow factor” than that!
“Chicks to Chickens – The ultimate Guide to Raising Backyard Chickens” by…How does that sound? Was it really that bad? I told you, I know nothing about this sort of stuff.
Write unique content. This should be easy since you’ll be writing about something that you are passionate and have more knowledge about. “Dr Charles” wrote about something he was passionate about and this shouldn’t be a difficult task for you either. Write using Microsoft Word, I’ll tell you why in a few minutes.
Including quotes from publications by others.
I personally received positive responses from everyone I contacted asking permission to quote some of their content within my eBook. If you want to quote someone in your eBook, simply contact them by phone or email and humbly ask them to send you a formal response acknowledging their consent. These are the places I personally received acknowledgments from:
The Secret – by Rhonda Byrne
The Science of Getting Rich – by Wallace Wattles
Think and Grow Rich – by Napoleon Hill
And much more…
Editing and proofreading – the free way
Ask a friend or family member to read your manuscript and give as much constructive criticism as they possibly can. Ask a good English teacher or professor you know to go through your book as a proofreading measure, at their own leisure time before you decide to publish it. Remember that I am only sharing the free method of writing and publishing your eBook.
Calm down, you will be a new kid on the block therefore; keeping the price of your eBook as competitive as possible should be something worth considering. I mean keep your price down to $2.00 if you have to, you’ll get a chance to raise it up once you see a considerable amount of sales coming in.
The Publishing Stage
Since we are going to be using the free method to write an eBook, we are also going to use the free method of publishing and I personally recommend using the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing where you will independently publish with Kindle Direct Publishing to reach millions of readers across the globe.

Ranking Your eBook at Number One on Amazon by Choosing the Perfect Title!
There is a basic science involved in choosing the right title for your eBook. This is a secret known by people who always crush it on Amazon with every eBook they publish. Do you know a guy who goes by the name of Dr Charles Livingston? This is the same guy I mentioned earlier in this post, the guy behind the most popular weight loss product called “the fat loss factor” which once took the Internet world and weight loss niche by storm. All of his eBooks that he published on Amazon either rank number one or two on the first page of Amazon search results. He achieved the following results in the early days when he conducted an experiment on one of his eBooks about Detoxification:
In this Kindle Spy review, you will learn how Dr Charles Livingston was able to rank his Detoxification eBook at number one on Amazon using what I call “the Amazon Kindle Crusher”. This is one powerful software that will literally turn Amazon.com into your own personal money printing machine. Don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself.
Oh, I mentioned that I was going to reveal why you need to use Microsoft Word when writing your eBook and almost forgot. Read this post on how to format an eBook for Kindle for more details.
Promoting your eBook

Remember that promoting doesn’t have to be something you do Online, you can also do this through word-of-mouth and ask for reviews for your eBook from friends and families.
