Do you want to know the secret to selling more books? It's a no brainer. Make them available through more channels. Too many authors look at Kindle as the final destination for their books. They're so caught up in optimizing their book for Amazon, running KDP Free Days, Countdown Deals, and cycling prices that they forget - millions of people have never bought a Kindle book, let alone any kind of eBook. It's true - Amazon is the big kid on the block. The best estimates are they have 65% of the eBook market in the United States. But if I understand math, that still leaves 35% of American book lovers who enjoy their eBooks served up in a different flavor. Can you afford to pass that audience by? Apple's iStore is the second-biggest eBook market in the world. Kobo is a major force in Canada, and many other countries. Barnes and Noble still holds over 15% of the eBook market. And, before we forget - many people still like their books served up the old way - as paperbacks they can flip through, and fold the corners, and scribble notes all over. There are millions of people who would rather listen to a book than read it. If you don't have your book listed with ACX, you're missing out on millions of possible listeners who shop on Audible, Amazon, and in the iStore. Don't believe me? Consider this, my first month on ACX I sold over 200 audiobooks. That's with four titles available. Within the next month I expect to have 22 titles available as audio books, and close to 500 sales a month. And, all it cost me was a simple fiver to create the cover for each audiobook. Kindle Cash System walks you step-by-step through setting up and publishing your book on Create Space, SmashWords, Barnes and Noble, Audible (ACX), Babelcube, and Google Play and Google Books. 1.

Kipling's best-loved work, now in a gorgeous new clothbound edition designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith. These delectable and collectable editions are bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.The story of Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as the bear Baloo, the graceful black panther Bagheera and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes. Other animal stories in The Jungle Books range from the dramatic battle between good and evil in 'Rikki-tikki-tavi' to the macabre comedy 'The Undertakers'. With The Jungle Books Rudyard Kipling drew on ancient beast fables, Buddhist philosophy and memories of his Anglo-Indian childhood to create a rich, symbolic portrait of man and nature, and an eternal classic of childhood.Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. In 1882 Kipling started work as a journalist in India, and while there produced a body of work, stories, sketches and poems - notably Plain Tales from the Hills(1888) - which made him an instant literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1889. His most famous works include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901) and the Just So Stories (1902). Kipling refused to accept the role of Poet Laureate and other civil honours, but he was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907. He died in 1936.Jan Montefiore has taught at the University of Kent since 1978, where she is now Professor of 20th Century English Literature.
