Listing Details

This listing is for an Amazon KDP business created in March 2014 in the romance niche. The business focuses on the erotic romance genre of novels. There are author and publisher Wordpress sites in place for the 35 ebooks, 28 of which fall under one author. There is also one audiobook and some of the books are available in paperback. This business has an email list of almost 17K subscribers and requires minimal work from the Seller.

The Seller has heard from readers that are looking forward to further releases. Facebook advertising and organic Amazon traffic are the primary ways to get eyes on the books. The Seller used to work with different ghostwriters, but now has settled on one primary ghostwriter based in the US because of price, education, performance, and ease of communication. She is looking forward to continuing with the Buyer and is open to the idea of expanding her role beyond writing.

The Seller is experienced in releasing new material and will share this information with the new owner. The business has a private group on Facebook where the Seller organizes ARC readers who leave reviews in the first couple days of release, thus ensuring that the book can do as well as possible during those crucial first 30 days of availability. The Seller has a few books that are ready to go live so the Buyer will have a buffer of material to release as they work with the ghostwriter on new projects.

The 16,900 subscribers to the email list currently only get emails about new releases. There is also an automation sequence with a series of “real life” stories from the author's life that ties into some of the releases. The onboarding emails contain three free novels sent over the course of a week or two. Monetizing the list is an opportunity for the Buyer to pursue.

*The Seller earns a small income from Amazon Associates.

*The Seller believes the decline over the last year is primarily due to the Seller starting several other projects over the last year. The current income is revenue generate with very little effort from the Seller.
