September proved a really productive month for me as I discovered a new outlet for my creativity. I have struggled for years with the problem of wondering why. Why was I writing? Why was I spending so much time on stuff that no one (or very few people anyway) would read?
Well, after some research and a really crappy crappy crappy experience with print on demand publishing with publish america (write me if you want to hear a horror story, which they tell everyday) I had nearly given up. But then along came Kindle.
If you aren't working with Kindle and Amazon you might want to consider it. I just started a few weeks ago and already I have made more money on my writing than ever before. Not saying that is a lot of money, but still enough to buy a night out on the town beats making nothing as files sit on my hard drive.
So this month I published (so far) three books and another is with my editor as I type. Now granted one of these was finished product before I heard of kindle, but the other two were not.
One was a novel that I constructed/converted from an existing screenplay which took me around 60 days to write, but the other one a workbook for writing your first novel which I completed in a weekend. That was percolating in my mind for a while, so it was kind of pre-written but still.. nice to know that kindle option is out there waiting.
In case you are wondering, the books are Blaze Motors - historical fiction, Someone Else's Tomorrow - set in the near future, somewhat sci-fi-ish, and finally Write Here, Write Now, No Excuses..
This weekend the novel writing workbook will be free, so download away....
