A lot has changed in self-publishing since this book was written in 2014. There’s still good money to be made — especially in writing romance, because it’s the most popular genre of all time. But, how to go about it has changed.
This book still offers great insight into how to make money writing romance, but there’s a second version, which includes info on today’s publishing climate, ie, how Amazon’s KU program changed the game for self-published authors. Click thru to learn more.
Why $2,000 Per Month and Not More, or Less?
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.Get first-hand info on how to start making money in this hot self-publishing niche for under $5!
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.
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!).
Make a Full-Time Living Writing Romance in 6 Months?
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.
Here’s what one reader had to say …
Just wanted to let you know I tore through your latest, the romance novel writing book, and loved it. It gave me so many tools to begin immediately and a big boost of confidence. I love how you break everything down with links, your personal experience, and solid advice.
As a side note, my boyfriend spotted a typo on the cover. It says “how to money” instead of “how to make money”. I did not even noticed it until he pointed it out as I was reading. (Author Note: I fixed the cover!)
Thanks again for another great investment!~Laura
