Writing fiction for love AND money

Enter the Exciting World of Self publishing Fiction

and Crack the Kindle Code…

From the desk of Bestselling Author Andrea Drew:

Dear Aspiring Author

If you’re like me when I began this scary task, you wonder most days if it’s possible.  You’re forever telling stories, mimicking the accents, loving the looks on listeners faces as you drag out the telling of your tale for as long as possible. You day dream about doing it for a living. It seems far off, unattainable, out of reach.  Let me tell you it can be done.  You’ve wanted to write these stories down and have others read them for a long time.  So long ago you’ve forgotten when you first started imagining it.  In itself, that would be enough reward right? To have your stuff read.  It all seems too good to be true.

The problem is, life gets in the way.  Kids, bills, work, it’s all too hard, by the time you get to thinking about writing you’re exhausted.  You put yourself last. There’s money to be made, wolves to keep from the door, a family to support.  No time for pipe dreams any more. You tell yourself that some sweet day, when the planets align, and if you put your socks on in the right order, and the demands will ease up for just five damn minutes, you’ll have the time to do something for you, have time to write, something worthwhile, something real so you can escape the rat race.

Let me tell you, if you’re waiting for permission to write fiction professionally, that day will never come.  NEVER.  Besides, I’m not good at waiting.

Then one day, an idea comes that just won’t leave you alone.  You’ve made attempts at writing a novel, and failed. I know I did. The idea stays, but you give up on being able to write it.  You’re just not talented enough.  I’m here to tell you that is the biggest pack of lies anyone could ever tell themselves. Back then I didn’t know what I didn’t know; I failed to realise how little I knew about the industry, and how far I had to go.  I wasn’t born talented, gifted, creative I was a competent writer and I worked damn hard to become a good one.

I doubted myself CONSTANTLY, but I kept going, ploughing ahead.

If you’re going to do this, really do it, you need support, encouragement, someone to talk to, to learn from, someone that understands.  That can answer any possible question you have. Not some Guru spouting “Do as I say not as I do” But real ‘what to do’ advice from someone with skin in the game.  Not empty promises and throat clearing.  You want to pick the brains of someone that’s been where you are now, that’s living it TODAY, someone that understands what you’re going through, and has pushed through every barrier imaginable to achieve their dreams.  And let me tell you, when you do get there, the rewards are sweeter than you can imagine, the nectar of life itself.   There’s no feeling like it in existence.  That I promise you.  Everything you are going through now, and are yet to go through, will all be worth it when you look back at the start of your writing journey, which begins the day you decide on investing in you.

But first here’s some statistics from the Kindle world of ebooks:

  • We estimate that the sales of Kindle devices stood at roughly 20 million in 2013, bringing about $3.9 billion in revenues. (Forbes Magazine – forbes.com)
  • On average, an ebook costs $6.25 less than a hardcover book. This is a huge issue to the book publishing industry, which worries that ebook sales will cannibalize hardcover book sales. (Yes it will and it has, get over it Big 5 Trad Pubbers)
  • Amazon has sold around 22 million Kindle books so far this year. (2010 – Business Insider.com.au) and that’s not factorering in the massive growth of ebooks sales when you consider the number of downloads of the kindle app to phones, tablets, PCs and laptops.
  • Their is no limit in the massive amazon kindle marketplace. Ebooks can be purchased at low cost with  just one click (the one click purchase – open an amazon account and you’ll see)
