How’s your self-publishing business progressing? We’re well into the second half of the year: the business half. The holiday season buying period begins in October.
Will you be ready?
Start preparing now. Now’s the time to:
- Create a new series (fiction or nonfiction);
- Think about holiday-themed books;
- Explore your options for holiday promotions.
Hate book marketing? Here’s a secret: the easiest way to increase sales is to use your content to win new readers and fans. If you’re writing fiction, you know that Amazon rewards frequent publication. So, consider developing a program which includes short fiction as well as novels.
Self-publishing fiction: include short stories and novellas in your publishing program
I’ve long recommended to my students that they use their content to promote their content.
- Publishing a variety of fiction; short fiction, as well as longer novels;
- Writing in series;
- Establishing yourself in a genre.
I’m a huge fan of short stories — explore the Short Reads Report for more.
Novellas bridge short fiction and novels; they have many uses, and they’re easy to write. Large publishers know the value of novellas in a publishing program.
Your self-publishing blueprint to write and sell a novella in seven days
Readers and students asked for a program to help them to include novellas in their self-publishing business.
Here’s why. Novellas are shorter than novels so they’re not only faster to write, but also to edit.
Like short stories, novellas are useful for promotion. Downloading a novel, even it’s a “freebie” via Kindle Unlimited, seems a commitment of time and energy to readers. Novellas give readers a chance to try an author before they commit to a novel.
Check out our new program, Write And Sell A Novella In 7 Days: Your Blueprint For Success. It’s powerful, practical, and tested. Use it to enhance your sales when the holiday buying season starts in October.
How many novellas could you write before Christmas, if you could write a novella in seven days?
You’ll enjoy writing novellas; make this holiday season the best-ever for your self-publishing business.
