Most sellers don't publically publish Amazon KDP Income reports. And if they do, it's often to boast their 5-figure or 6-figure sales. Often it's because big numbers create good clickbait to get your attention, or they want to pitch you to buy something from them.
While the allure of overnight success can be enticing, it's important to approach your Amazon KDP journey with a mindset of slow and steady growth. Building a successful income stream from your books takes time, patience, and persistence. It's important to understand that success doesn't usually happen overnight, and it requires consistent effort and dedication.
Ignore the glamor of the experts sharing their huge success stories after years in the business.
