Everyone has a tale to tell, even if they haven't heard it yet. Even better, how can we turn it into something we can release, like a novel or a brief film? To tell a tale, attend this course in Basic Creative Writing Skills for Beginners, which is available for $24 and is about storyline, personality and attitude - and how to become a dedicated author who practises his profession every day.
You may already know how to spell and need to increase your creative power a little. The course also contains cut and self-publication classes if you are sure about your history and want to try to turn it into a movie or something to like. Normally this course in Basic Creative Writing Skills for Beginners would be $200 - but it is now available for only $24, which is a 88% rebate.
When you publish your own books, can you publish them to a major publisher - and would you want to?
Many of you know that my The Gift of Maybe will be released on November 4, 2014 by Perigee, an impression of Penguin Random House. Some of you may not know that I initially released my own work in February 2013 (the initial name was The Buch of Maybe).
Hopefully I can share my history with you, shed some perspective on the pros and cons of self-publishing and help you determine what is the best way to publish a textbook you have alreadyritten. In the following few months Peter kept insisting that I should send a letter to his boyfriend and tell him that I was willing to start my first one.
When I sent the e-mail, I was contacted by a London publishing house in New York and was on my way to write my work. I' m not a professional author and had little knowledge of memo and contract drafting at the age.
I' ve just begun to type. Six and a half month later, I was finished producing a hundred and forty-page work. 10 workdays later, his answer was: "You either have to take a course in typing or you have to employ an editorial staff. "Maybe I should call some folks and try to figure out what you're giving a publishers when you start working on a work!
" Soon it turned out that the response was a so-called reading suggestion. So for the next three month I proposed my books and got the name of three agent from someone I knew. I' ve put the proposition to these operatives. I used this publisher to turn my suggestion back into a brief textbook that we all felt good about.
I' m willing to mail it to the publishing houses. I had my re-written work sent to several major publishing houses and I was immediately refused. So I implored my agents to resend the script and against her better judgement - I was no Wayne Dyer! Most of the guys in the business told me to sit back and watch until I had a bigger fan base.
I had never been waiting for someone else to give me a permit to help others, and this was a means to disseminate my work. Wasn' t it a way to help them alleviate their sufferings? I' ve been calling Createspace, Amazon's self-publishing site. While I don't recall how long the whole trial took, my textbook was released in February 2013 in softcover and a months later on Kindle.
I' ve entered the Kindle Select programme and have the opportunity to buy my copy at a reduced price or give it away free of charge for a certain period of the year. I found it very time-consuming to publish my own work. And I found that I wrote less and spent a great deal of my life connecting with others to publish the work.
However, blogger and small businesses greeted my work. Towards the end of the 90-day deadline, I resolved to give my work away free of charge for three working nights. This was a simple choice for me because I had been writing the textbook to help others, and I had not been very effective in my advertising, although my web exposure and following had increased considerably over the years.
Found a site named Author's Marketing Club. You' re connected to several web pages promoting your free textbooks. I' ve also included my work on other pages I found myself. One of my colleagues also referred to a Bookbub promotional site, to which you must submit your application and accept those titles and/or writers who are more mature or well known.
Bookbub agreed to accept me for a few hundred bucks and my volume was published for a three days time. On the first morning in June I was in a hairdresser's when the free supply of my books began. In a few hour my volume was downloading over 10,000 copies.
So who were all those beautiful folks who downloaded my work? All of a sudden I was number one on Amazon's free self-help best-seller directory. and number two for all the free textbooks. I' ve also been able to remain on the Amazon best-seller listing for selling titles for a brief period after my doctorate, in the motivation guides section next to Wayne Dyer.
After the free promotional campaign, more than 29,000 titles were downloadable and it was one of the most exciting experience of my Iife. They all had my work! She didn't really know what to think of the whole thing when I phoned her, but she sent my novel to ten publishing houses again and this one I had the editor's decision!
I' ve had several encounters, but when I saw Marian Lizzi, the editor-in-chief of Perigee, I knew that my novel had found its home. and they made a bargain. I' m going to launch my novel at the Tribeca Barnes and Noble on November 4, which is a real one!
I' ve also got several big papers that will consider me for TV coverage and article submissions when my books are published. I' m trying to make the most of this occasion and get my books to as many readers as possible. What would I advise anyone who writes a work?
Irrespective of who the editor is, you can try to get an agents and get your copy in front of some editors. When you are turned down, try to get genuine feed-back from experienced professionals and make adaptations to your work as it is appropriate.
When it' s supporting a careers you're already in, give talks and promote your products at shows. So if this is a new carreer for you, connect with a blogger and take full benefit of Amazon's Kindle Select programme, then give your textbook away for free or at a rebate to build a fanset.
Specifically market your product every weekly and then.... begin to write your next one. Just relish that your work is out there and know that MAYBE will be selling your works over the years or MAYBE will get you a great Publishing Deal as I did. There' s also the chance that you will just be happy just to bring your work into the worid, and that you will be happy every single times a someone sees your work.
Make your dreams come true! I got a call the other night from my sales rep and said if my copy doesn't reach 25,000 or more, it might be hard to get another one. Is The Gift of Maybe going to be selling 25,000 pieces? Rather than worry, I accept the idea of my work.
I will be selling 25,000 copies, but if not..... only MAYBE can I find another way to publish my next one. The GOOD LUCK on your trip with a travelogue!
