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 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.
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.
