I settled on this amount because I believe it’s totally achievable within three to six months if you’re constantly producing, as my numbers will show.
I earned almost $2,000 within the first couple of months that I started writing romance regularly. I had seven titles out, which included the one I’d written in May of last year (2013). I published six short novels between March and April of this year (2014), which is one reason my income exploded so quickly, in my opinion.
And this is with practically no marketing; no name recognition as a romance writer; and again no experience writing in this genre before May of 2013. This is very important to keep in mind.
With this type of output (I didn’t say it was gonna be easy, just very possible), if you’re writing good stories in a popular genre, I’d say you can duplicate my success. And the reason I know this is that I’ve read at least 20 or 30 stories on the web of new romance writers who’ve done the same thing – most earning much more than I have.
I like to give people totally reachable goals though. That’s why I’m not promising that you’re going to become rich writing romance. It’s possible, but it’s not a claim I can make because I haven’t done it (yet!).
I can only tell you what’s worked for me. Which is why what I will say is that I think earning $2,000 to $3,000 per month writing romance is very possible within six months – if you constantly put out new titles (eg, one a week; minimally two to three per month) and follow some of the marketing advice discussed within – which is very minimal.
