Personally, I would recommend writing Kindle books as a side-job. Not everyone is successful when it comes to writing books. Take me for instance: I uploaded my first book, The Sapphire Desire, about a month ago. It has only sold a few copies so far. My main job pays me far more than what I would make writing books for Kindle.
I welcome you to the forums as well as your desires to write books for Kindle. However, unless you're currently unemployed, I wouldn't make this your full-time job. It's good to do this kind of thing on the side to make extra money. I look foward to seeing what you have to offer.
I do not write books, but am interested in making additional income by typing in books for the Kindle. I type approx 70-85wpm. Would you happen to know who I would contact to see if this is a possibility?
All you could do is put an ad in your local craigslist that you're offering to type for anyone that needs it. Most people do their own typing these days. Someone who dictates or writes in longhand could use your help, but even someone that types 30 wpm wouldn't benefit from you because they'd have to get it written down to give to you anyway.
My daughter does ebook formatting and occasionally gets a customer who only has a printed version of a back listed book. It would be helpful to have you as someone she can refer those customers to. She is trying to finish college, so her time is limited. You can reach her through her website at eformatters.com. There is no guaranteed of work, but networking is always a good thing and I can add a little ad for you on her website, which I created long with three other websites. No wonder I never have enough time. Have you seen 1500 authors dot com?
Author of 18 Kindle books including the Highlander Series and Seattle Quake 9.2 -- all uploaded in a simply word.doc format with no bothersome TOC, but a lot of free advertising on the last page of all the books. Just search for Marti Talbott's Stories and don't forget to sign up to be notified when Marblestone Castle is published -- if I ever get off these boards long enough to finish writing it.
