I have made most of my royalties from amazon kdp by publishing medium-content books.
Luckily, I created my first batch of kdp books as writing prompts journals that fall under the umbrella of medium content books!
I also published low-content books like journals, sketchbooks, and composition notebooks but medium-content books sell well over time and I can price them a bit higher.
Most importantly, medium-content books are comparatively harder to create therefore the competition is lower as not all publishers are willing to put that much time and effort.
And today in this blog post, I will be sharing some of the best-selling medium content books on Amazon. By best-selling medium content books, I am referring to those books that are currently generating good sales.
You can take this info as starting point for your niche research or you can too publish similar books just better than already created ones.
