|I got something for you and while I’m excited, let’s start with story time…|
|Charles Dickens did it. Truman Capote did it. Agatha Christie did it. Dostoevsky and Tolstoy did it. Even Hemingway, Stephen King, and Margaret Atwood did it…Serialization. Recognize any of these titles?|
The Bonfire of the Vanities
The Green Mile
The Count of Monte Cristo
A Tale of Two Cities
The War of the Worlds
All serials. After a huge hiatus of more than a century, serial fiction (and nonfiction narrative) is making a HUGE comeback in the form of story platforms like Dreame, Wattpad, Tapas, and Radish. Want proof? Since Jan 2019, in-app story serialization platform revenue has increased by a whopping 500%.
Not wanting to miss out on this sweet earner (and the way people are shifting to consuming books), Amazon launched their own story platform in July:
Kindle Vella lets you write and publish your story in serial parts — and earn as you go!
Your “in progress” (read: unfinished) books that you publish on Vella are eligible for monthly launch bonuses just for getting faves, follows, and token redemptions.
Talk about an epic head start to getting your name known, growing your readership, AND earning money before you have finished writing your book!
In fact, Vella’s bonus pot in September was a whopping $500,000.
Even better, once your book is complete, Amazon has no barrier to publishing your book as an ebook, so you can earn money both from the serialization AND as an ebook!
So…50% for Vella reads + 70% for KDP Select Royalties…that’s a lot of bonus cash.
(side note: right now, unlike the other established story platforms, Vella is ONLY available to residents of the US — a big advantage for those in the USA! — but they have worldwide release plans in the works)
Now, you know me — I wouldn’t write to tell you about an awesome opportunity without also giving you the tools you need to take advantage of this trend…
So whether you’re an absolute beginner looking for the best way to get your first story out of your head and onto the blank page…
…or you’re an established author who wants to continue to level up your writing and see the huge potential of serialization…
