As the title states, I want to create 20 Kindle eBooks by June 30th. That's essentially one book a day. I don't have any set goals for how much I should make, but I do want to see how far these books will go.

Today is June 10th, so I'll start tomorrow with the writing.
I'm estimating it to take about one or two hours to write each book using my current writing strategy, so this seems doable (but it is still going to be tough) for me.

I made this thread to help motivate me to stick through with it, so I'll update it with my progress everyday.

Each book will:
  • have about 2000 to 3000 words
  • be about the same niche
  • have a 5-day free promotional period and be priced at $.99 after
  • have links back to social media profiles
  • have links to each eBook


Progress:
[Data Til 6/25/2015]

Well, Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and Affiliate Program are both owned by Amazon, but the KDP is where users can upload and sell books.

But yeah, I'm going for sub-niches of a general niche. I've read on multiple forums that solutions to problems or "how-to's" that are 2 to 3 thousand words sell fairly well.

Wow, finally a new approach. Kudos for a fresh idea, and please go on :) I am curious to see how it goes, especially as I am a writer myself. 2-3k words per day is gonna be hard on you, but hopefully you won't give up ;) Try listening to music while writing. If you can concentrate with it, then you won't feel bored.

I'll just post my progress in this one post, editing it throughout the day.

- Wrote for about an hour, I have ~1000 words down so far. In another hour, I should be at ~2000 words.
- Just need to create a cover, get keywords, create a short description, and upload to KDP.

EDIT: I'm a little over 2000 words and trying to close the book. I got distracted by league of legends, but I'll should be able to finish by the end of the day.

EDIT: After a lot of procrastinating, I finished the 2.5k word book, creating a cover image now and uploading to Kindle.

EDIT: And now published! Waiting for approval.

I'll update today's progress as I go again.

I wrote for about an hour, and again, I have ~1000 words. I'm probably going to keep this book 2000 words max.
I should be done with write within the new few hours after I eat.

EDIT: 1.9k word eBook complete. I just need to create a cover image and upload it to Kindle.

EDIT: Published, and awaiting Amazon's approval. The other book I created is already in the marketplace, with the free promotion period starting tomorrow.

Today I plan on creating another near 2k word eBook. I'm not sure of a sub-topic to write about though.
If I can't think of a sub-topic, I'll probably write another eBook about a broader subject.

The first book is in it's free promotional period atm with 19 downloads already. The traffic is not all going to waste though. I have links to my social media platforms, so it could help me get some followers/subscribers.

EDIT: Figured out that I was going to write a book about making money with the public domain. It may help some people here, so I plan on releasing it here when I'm finished.

EDIT: Done with the book. Uploading to Kindle after I create a cover image.

I'm sharing some of the book here for free:

EDIT: Link is down now because I enrolled the book into the KDP Select.

Whoops! I forgot to update this thread before the day way over, but I still did manage to write a 2k word book.
So, I'm still on track so far. I'm going to have to squeeze in time tomorrow to write another book (or possibly two) because I have my high school graduation rehearsal, with the actual graduation the following day.
