The Good, The Bad, And The....Well, You Know

Okay! Unfortunately getting into the Apex Authors was no go. A friend showed tried to help me get some people to sign up. ($1. trial. That's all) Only a few people looked, but didn't sign up. I guess everyone is making major book sales then since they didn't need them, right? I did need them, but since I couldn't stay a member because of no sign ups, I had to move on.

What I need is something that will sell that will take a day to do, or fun to create. In other words, short and Easy. SO...I have done 12 books that was hardly any work to put together, but now I have to start promoting, because no one will know they are there unless they accidentally happen to see it.
Part two, which I am starting this week, is to work on the 'fun' books and then I will have to start promoting them. The whole purpose of doing said books is to generate an income that comes in easily to give me oceans of time to work on my novels.

 In the meantime, I have an Editor working on an old book, and I am working on new fiction books to publish to Kindle and later on, CreateSpace, etc. I am getting to the point that I need a change. Tired of the dayjob, want to wake up every morning and do what I want to do so I am actively pursuing what I have to do to get what I want in 2016.

What are these books that are fun and easy to publish? I will tell you(yes, I promise I will get back to you before next year, LoL.)I have promised a case study, so I will be publishing as each project is completed.

News: Okay, I Am Finally Moving Forward

I am done trying to figure out how to be successful at marketing. I have found a great author's group that will help you learn everything from formatting your ebook, creating great covers to getting reviews. It's a great community. There is training,  Question and answer sessions. I really believe that there is no stone un turned when it comes to this website. Right now there is a trial membership that you really should take advantage of. I am, because I need, and want to desperately work from home.

Last year was a mixture of good and bad. I was physically unable to do any work for  several weeks. Of the dozen or more books I have in Kindle, I should have been making at least four figures a month, but I didn't. I couldn't work, and with my job- you don't work, you don't get paid!  Well, Fast forward to 2016. I am feeling better, and am determined to make more from my writing. This group is the answer. Sign up today, and take a trial membership. Find out if it can (and it will) help you succeed in selling your books.

Apex Authors

 So, after I digest some of this information, I am going to re-do all of my Kindle books, and expand my horizons. Do you have your books on multiple websites? If not, you should. I will be posting in three months(I hope less than that) the best websites to upload your books to get multiple sales, and I am going back to my book reviews and post a link from every book that I have read, so expect more of that in 2016!  I don't know how long this trial is going to last, so make sure that you sign up today and get more from your writing!

Books, Books, Books

I am writing, writing and writing. I am  also still reading. My goal of 500 books for this year has not changed. I will still put up the case studies after my next books are published. I currently have 13 books published at Amazon. Each of them are selling, but not as well as I want them to.  So I am going to publish more books and by July 2015, if all goes well, I can finally post the case studies.
Well, I must get back to work. I will try to post once a month, but I am juggling so many things, it's very hard right now. So look for books, books and case studies in a couple of months.

News

There will be news this month on my writing, and as I do so, I will be posting case studies on my success rate with all that I've ever learned after all this time, LoL. Plus I've made a goal to read 500 books. (yes, that is correct) this year, so to save time, I'll be posting on Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari so I'll let you know when another one is done here.
I didn't make any New Years Resolutions, but I know what I want for this year, and that is to be more organized and really, really do better on handling time management. Okay! Gotta go and get back to work.

How Can You Get Amazon To Sell For You?

There are some people who do no Kindle marketing at all. Zero, nada, zip. How do they do it, is it real? Yes, if you understand how to set everything up, it does work. Still, you have to know what is selling. It is not that easy. If you're just making drip drop sales, or a few a day, then you really need to bring up your game with this course.

News News News

Still writing, but I will have more content for this blog soon, because my old reliable website Associated Content, turned Yahoo Contributor Network is coming to an end. I will post or re-post all my old articles  until I have the time to be on here again on a regular basis. I have a lot to say, but as my personal situation is, at the most a big question mark, I HAVE to start making a real income from home. Not just the measly under twenty dollars I have been making, yes-that is all I am making online currently.
I am hoping by publishing fiction books instead of nonfiction that will change. I have learned, and still am learning more about promotion and marketing and I have a whole lot to say. So, there you have it. If all goes well this week, there will be a post again next Friday as well as a book review! I'm almost done reading one of my many books.
