As we enter into another Christmas shopping season, one thing is clear - tablets and E-Readers are taking over the marketplace. With costs coming down, the tablet computer has become ubiquitous. Who doesn't have a tablet computer these days? The other interesting development is to watch how the Amazon Kindle has morphed into a fully functional tablet itself.

Amazon Fire - An E-Reader Or A Tablet?
Amazon's turbo charged Kindle is called the Kindle Fire. What most people don't know is that the Kindle Fire is clearly the best value in the whole world of tablets for one simple reason: Amazon actually loses money each time it sells one. The business plan is to get people into their ecosystem to further the sales of their digital download products. Whether it is music, movies, E-Books, or games, once you have a Kindle Fire in your hand you are only a couple of clicks away from buying content to consume.
Why This Is Great News For E-Book Authors
If you are an E-Book author (like me), the more people that have an Amazon Kindle the more money we stand to make. While it is true that consumers can read E-Books on desktops, laptops, iPads, and even smart phones, the explosion of Kindle devices in the marketplace is a boon for E-Book sales.
Most People Don't Know That They Can Go Into Business With Amazon For Free
It is this time of year that I typically meet a lot of new people. Many people hit me with that 'What do you do for a living' question at social gatherings. Well, in my case that is a bit complicated to answer but I usually say, 'I am an author and a talk show host.' That ends up quickly giving me the status of the most interesting guy in the room, and next comes the endless questions about how to get started with a book of their own. It seems that almost everyone these days has an idea for a book.
Go Into Business With Amazon And Take A 70% Cut Of The Sales
What is probably the most remarkable benefit for me as an author is that Amazon with pays me 70% of the money when one of my E-Books sells (if I follow their pricing guidelines). So, here is Amazon out in the marketplace building this enormous brand, selling tablet computers at a loss, spending millions on marketing, and I can go into business with them for FREE and earn 70% of the money (what a country!).
Although many folks have an initial excitement about the idea of writing an E-Book and earning monthly recurring income, they become discouraged at the thought of what it might take to actually write a book. I recently published a new video titled, 'The Shortcut Publishing Method - From Idea To Amazon In 2 Weeks,' which outlines a simple process that anyone can use to crank out their first book in just 14 days!
