450: How to Make Money with Kids Books on Amazon
Royalties from book sales is one of the most passive of all my income streams.
After you create a book, with print or digital distribution handled by Amazon, you can collect royalties for years.
And while I enjoy the writing process and have published several titles myself, I have yet to venture into the world of children's books.
(Despite having the outlines of a couple kids books on my phone for the last two or three years!)
This week I connected with Matthew Ralph, a children’s book author from England, who recently quit his full-time marketing job to focus on his publishing and freelancing business.
His bestselling work to date is Sam the Speedy Sloth. The idea of which came to him while walking through an airport, and by the time his flight landed, the book was almost written.
Matt has since added more books to his portfolio, while freelancing to help other self-publishing authors.
