Author Cheryl Tardif Shares her Secrets to Becoming a BIG Kindle eBook Seller

I've had the pleasure of interviewing author, Cheryl Tardif a few times, both here and for 'The Gift' blog. Today, I am so excited to help her spread the word about a new project she has just released.

On top of being a fantastic best-selling author, some of you may not know that she is also a publisher (Imajin Books) and an absolute marketing genius. In fact, she has combined all of these talents in creating her new book How I Made Over $42,000 in 1 Month Selling My Kindle eBooks. And she really did!

We're going to do a review of the book next week but thought we'd give you the heads up on Cheryl's new book so you can go get your hands on it. Read how she did it, absorb her pearls of wisdom and, maybe, you can even surpass what she was able to achieve!

Here's a bit of information about the book:

In March 2012 one Canadian author boldly went where few have gone before—into the land of making real money with Amazon's KDP Select program.

This is her story…

My name is Cheryl Kaye Tardif and I am an international bestselling suspense author who earned over $42,000 dollars in March 2012 selling ebooks via Amazon's KDP Select program, captured the interest of a major literary agency, and went on to sign with a foreign rights agent. And I'm about to tell you HOW I did all that.

I don't normally tell people how much money I make, but I believe writers need to know it IS possible to earn a real income from your books. Seriously, if I can do it, anyone can—if you have the right combination of criteria and techniques.

In this book, I'll share with you what I believe are four key elements you must have in place to see high sales. And I'll reveal the strategic techniques I used during my KDP Select promotions that resulted in earning over $42,000—with $32,000 of that from ONE title alone.

Not only did I earn over $42,000 in ebook sales, I was contacted by one of the leading literary agencies in New York. The chairman noticed my success when my one title made #4 in the Top 100 Bestselling Kindle ebooks, right under The Hunger Games trilogy. Since then, I've signed with another agent for foreign rights.

So, if you're ready to earn some real money with Select, let's begin…


Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing your insight. As always, you never cease to amaze and inspire me.

Be sure to come back next week for our review.


  1. Many thanks, Chynna! :-) I've always enjoyed sharing what I've learned along the way to publishing, but never have I shared my numbers. I did this time for one reason: to show that you don't have to be published by one of the Big 6 publishers or have an agent to do well. :-)


    1. Hi Cheryl! =D I know many writers will be so grateful for you sharing your insight. As you know, marketing can be a tough thing for many of us so having a book like this to help steer us in the right direction is such a valuable resource.

      Thank you for this book. I know you'll help many.

  2. Fantastic, Cheryl, but thought you'd give little ol' me your secrets as you learned them. After all, we are best friends, with a special Mommy/Daughter relationship. LOL But guess I'll have to spring for the book.

    Actually look forward to comparing it with my friend John Locke's book. Different techniques, I'm sure.

    Congrats on your huge success; we're doing quite well with our horror SIX-PACK OF BLOOD, but not at $42,000... Hmmmm...

    Hugs and all best always,

    Betty Boop

    1. Hi Betty! Thanks for your comment and for following. =)

      Cheryl is a true inspiration to me. It excites me how far she's gotten and I'm proud to help spread the word about her work.

      Hope to see you again soon! =)
