Have you ever wondered how to make at least $100,000 in Kindle royalties? - We help you take a realistic view and make a plan.

FIRST ANSWER: Writing good books that are loved and purchased by readers who provide excellent reviews that in turn attract more readers. Correct. But there is also a "mechanical" aspect to this...

SECOND ANSWER: Proper planning and target setting and executing a program that achieves the target.

Do you actually know how many such "good books" you have to publish, at what price, at what royalty level, and what average sales rank the books have to achieve over a 365 day period to make your $100,000 per year target? What is your strategy? - Many low priced books that sell at an average level. Or few high quality, highly marketed bestsellers?

Have you ever wondered:
How many copies does a book sell at a given Amazon Sales Rank?

Well, Amazon does not tell you. Yes, you can monitor your book's  sales rank (which can fluctuate widely) and look in Kindle author account to find out how many copies were sold in that time period. This process is tedious and provides you only with data points for your book.

What if you just wanted to have a quick estimate for how many sold copies to expect at a certain Amazon Sales Rank for any book?

What book genres are covered by the K-lytics PREMIUM Reports? +

K-lytics PREMIUM Reports break the 30 main book categories on the Amazon Kindle Store down into sub-categories. There are currently more than 400 of these sub-categories. The number is growing - and we cover them all.

For example, if you go on the Amazon Kindle Store and click on the book category “Health, Fitness & Dieting”, the following sub-categories will show up:


Addiction & Recovery
Alternative Medicine
Beauty, Grooming, & Style
Counseling & Psychology
Death & Grief
Diets & Weight Loss
Diseases & Physical Ailments
Exercise & Fitness
Personal Health
Safety & First Aid
Sports Health & Safety

Another example: If you click onto the main category “Romance”, more than 20 subcategories show up.


African American
Collections & Anthologies
Historical Romance
Multicultural & Interracial
Mystery & Suspense
New Adult & College
Romantic Comedy
Science Fiction
Time Travel

Time Travel

It is this sub-category level of book genres that we cover in the K-lytics PREMIUM reports. In total you will find data on more than 400 sub-categories in the report and in the interactive data tool. This is the level of detail you need at least for your publishing decisions.


What book genres are covered by K-lytics ELITE? +

K-lytics ELITE takes the market intel on each book market niche even another step further. Most of the sub-categories covered in K-lytics PREMIUM can be broken down even further to sub-sub-category level. There are currently more than 2,400 of these sub-sub-categories. This level of information allows laser-sharp targeting of the e-book market.

For example, if you go on the Amazon Kindle Store and click on the book category “Romance”, and then you click on one of the sub-categories, e.g. "Paranormal", you will find a further break down into sub-sub bestseller lists:

Romance-Paranormal-Demons & Devils
Romance-Paranormal-Werewolves & Shifters
Romance-Paranormal-Witches & Wizards

Our interactive data tool will help you to filter out the most attractive niche markets out of more than 2,400 available sub-sub-categories. The data covers both fiction and nonfiction genres.


What information do I find on each listed book genre? +

For each of the 345+ book categories (PREMIUM Report) and 27 main categories (BASIC Report) you will find:


  • Ø Sales Rank of Top 20 Titles
  • Estimated Sales per Day per Top 20 Title
  • Ø Sales Rank of No. 1 Bestseller
  • Estimated Sales per Day of No. 1 Bestseller


  • Rise/Drop in Top 20 Titles Ø Sales Rank vs. Prior Month
  • Rise/Drop of No. 1 Bestseller Sales Rank vs. Prior Month


  • Average Price of Top 20 Titles
  • Lowest Price among Top 20 Titles
  • Price Change of Top 20 Titles vs. Prior Month


  • Number of Titles (Category Size = Degree of Competion)
  • Change of Number of Titles vs. Prior Month
  • Average Number of Book Pages per Top 20 Title
  • (i.e. expected length of a title in the genre)


  • Our proprietary index formula to evaluate the commercial attractiveness of Kindle book categories
  • The index is based on proven weighting and combination of the above book evaluation criteria.
Where does the data come from? +

Each month we monitor and sample close to 100,000 book titles. For the 30 main Kindle book categories covered in the K-lytics BASIC reports we take the top 100 titles in each book category. For the more than 400 sub-categories covered in the K-lytics PREMIUM and the more than 2,400 sub-sub-categories in K-lytics ELITE, we take the top 20 titles in each market and monitor them over a period of time. The monitoring results serve as an indicator of how the book category performs relative to other categories.

Is the data sample large enough to be representative of a whole book category? +

In other words: Is 20 books enough to provide a picture of how a whole book sub-category or sub-sub-category performs?

YES. Consider this:  When we analyse the top 20 bestsellers for each of the 400+ book sub-categories and 2,400 sub-sub-categories we find a very interesting phenomenon:

The sales of any category are actually mostly happening in the top 20 titles that are displayed on the Top-20 Bestseller list. For 50% of the 400+ Amazon Kindle book sub-categories, the Sales Rank for the No. 20 Bestseller is 20,000 or worse. In other words, only about 5 books sold per day worldwide for the No. 20 title of that category. And for more than 90% of the book sub-categories, the No. 20 book title achieves a Sales Rank of 1,000 or worse (i.e. less than 100 books per day worldwide). So, yes, taking the averages across the top 20 titles of a book sub-category provides a good indicator of relative book category performance.

You will find a more detailed explanation of the methodology in the Member's area.

How does K-lytics differ from so-called Kindle keyword or niche finding software tools? +

K-lytics is NOT a tool or software. It is a a market intelligence service that provides unique insight based on an ever-increasing wealth of data on ebooks in the market. Keyword or niche-finding software 'tools' in the market all have one major flaw. They extract data from best seller lists at one point in time and basically tell you that whatever ranks high in those lists at that instant is "what is hot" and what you should go after. Consider this, though: Statistically, the sales rank of any book on Kindle fluctuates on average by +/- 25% in a given 24 hour period, and up to +/- 90% over 30 days. The effect of price promotions distort the picture even more. So a book or topic seems "selling" in one instant, can be a total non-seller in the next. Unless you constantly monitor books and whole genres over time, like we do, you can be totally led into a wrong direction. Keyword or niche-finding tools give you a snapshot of the market at a point in time; this can portray a totally misleading picture. At K-lytics, by contract, we look at am growing database of already hundreds of thousands of data points on book sales performances. This way we can tell you a) for sure what is continuously ranking high or not and b) what is trending up or down. As a K-lytics PREMIUM or ELITE member you can find trends as they emerge, not when they are over. And you will get the most accurate picture of the current market situation. Only Amazon itself, has more and better data.
