Why do you want to write?

There are two schools of thought about writing a book and selling it.

Many believe you need to stick your finger in the air, feel the way the wind is blowing and follow that gust of air – no matter where it takes you.

Others believe you should write from the heart. In other words, write what you want to write, rather than what is popular.

I say the latter is always the best course of action. Robert Frost in perhaps his most famous poem, The Road Less Traveled, couldn’t have pounded home this point more clearly.

If you really want to make money and be successful, then perhaps you should go ahead and try to write what you think the reading public wants. And, you may be successful. But do you really want to spend all your time chasing what may well turn out to be an elusive goal?

It can be a grind.

The big question you need to ask yourself is why you want to write. Do you have a craving deep in your heart for self-expression or to drive home a point? When you write about what you most love, desire or need to explore, the words come more easily, bursting forth from your soul.

Isn’t that really what writing should be?

One thing is for sure. Writing a book will be more fun when you put down on paper what you want rather than what you think others want.

And that’s my two cents for the day.

Marketing books is a bitch

Are you an author? Yeah … me too, and I don’t know about you but I’m sick and tired of trying to market my books. I’ve been writing for a long time. This included those many years prior to epublishing – writing books, both fiction and nonfiction, and trying unsuccessfully to see my words in print.
Epublishing arrived and suddenly new opportunites for writers opened up like never before. I know I couldn’t have been more happy. I finally was published and my books were in front of readers. But alas, I sold few books, and I continue to hammer my head against this brick wall of marketing.
I’ve spent a few bucks here and there with advertising my works. I’ve endlessly tried all the free marketing – Facebook sites, Pininterest, search engine optimization tricks – you name it. In a good month I may sell forty to fifty books. Of course, when your books are priced between 99 cents and 3 dollars you don’t make a lot of money.
My goal has long been to write full time, but if you do the math, it’s easy to see I have a ways to go if I ever want to pay the bills from the bucks I earn as an author.
I’m not complaining. Well … actually I am. My point is I don’t have any quick answers as to how to effectively market books. I’ve read tons of stuff by so-called experts on the subject, endlessly searched the the internet for answers and talked to plenty of other writers, but I’m at a loss to know what the magic bullet is for making any kind of real money as an author.
Book marketing is a bitch.
I know how to write a book. That’s the easy part. I write what I want, and I write fast and the words come tumbling out onto paper. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the only way to create a book of either fiction or nonfiction. Perhaps you can’t be an artist and a businessman too.
And that’s my two cents for the day.
