30 Day Fiction Writing Challenge

30 Day Fiction Writing ChallengeCan You Write & Publish a Book in 30 Days?

Well, I am gonna try!!!

It has been a really long time since I have blogged so what better way to get back into it than by taking part in a 30 Day Fiction Writing Challenge? Tiffany Lambert over at Foray into Fiction is spearheading this by asking people to join her in creating your own work of fiction over the next 30 days.

The aim is to get something written, edited and published by the end. It can be about a topic or genre of your choice and you can write as little or as much as you wish. As long as you can create something that is at least 3,000 words in length, you will be able to publish it and put it up for sale on Amazon.

What Have I Been Doing – Writing-wise?

Since deciding to work on making money through fiction writing, I have been trying to write something every day. Some days are good, some days are not so good because I am either too busy, too lazy or I end up procrastinating about this, that and the other.  :(

But being part of the Kindling Facebook Group has helped to motivate me as I am reading the success stories of others who were in my position once upon a time. Now there are people who are making 1K, 5K, even 10k per month from writing fiction that they enjoy writing.

So here goes. I don’t know what I will end up with at the end of 30 days but I sure hope it is something that others will get a kick out of, which will hopefully lead to a few sales here and there. Fingers crossed. :)

Free Book – The Single Ladies Club & Other Short Stories

The Single Ladies Club & Other Short Stories- Free Book Offer

My Book Publishing Journey So Far This Year

For me 2015 will be the year of fiction writing. I have been using my Kindling membership in order to read different posts, watch the videos and listen to the inspirational audios. One of the most important lessons I have learned is that if you want to make money from your writing, you have to treat fiction writing and book writing as a business.

That means that once you have something that is almost ready to go, you have to be prepared for that final push so that people can actually discover you and make a purchase.

Last month I published my first book of the year. It is called The Single Ladies & Other Short Stories. Here’s the little blurb I added to the Amazon website sales page:

The Single Ladies Club & Other Short Stories

This is a collection of 10 short stories ranging from 1,000 woThe Single Ladies Club and Other Stories - Victoria Virgords to 1,800 words.

This has been called The Tea-break Series because these mini tales can be read while you are enjoying your tea-break or during your short commute to work on the train or tube.

The Short Story Titles Are:

The Single Ladies Club – 1185 words
A Helping Hand – 1553 words
The Alibi – 1415 words
His Last Day – 1453 words
Indecision – 1055 words
New Beginnings – 1879 words
What Could Have Been – 1204 words
No Added Extras – 1102 words
The Reunion – 1248 words
The First Day of The Rest of Their Lives – 1040 words

As you can see, I wanted to ensure that people knew exactly what they were going to get once they downloaded the book. They know that it is made up of short stories and that the complete length is around 13,000 words.

What Next?

This is my first book of the year. I created it to prove that I could get something together and get it published. It has been a great learning curve because I have been able to practice my writing skills. I am able to see the style of writing I am able to produce and where I need to improve. I have already learned quite a few valuable lessons and look forward to learning even more :)

FREE BOOK OFFER - this book is available to download for FREE from Thursday 26th February – Monday 2nd March 2015.

Your support would be gratefully appreciated.
