Kindle Vella: A New Way to Make Money?

Hi everyone!

I’m sure you all know you can self-publish a book via Amazon Direct Publishing to make money as a writer.

However, did you know you can also create serialised stories on Amazon like you can on Wattpad or Tapas? It’s called Kindle Vella and you release your story one chapter at a time.

Your chapter needs to be at least 600 words, but it can be up to 5000! Then, people unlock each chapter using coins.

This is pretty cool for the people who publish serially anyway. I recommend you check it out!


This page tells you more about the royalties system. It seems it’s based on how many words are in the episode. The minimum is 600 words while the maximum is 5,000 words. The page tells you more about the process though.
