Want to Make Full-Time Living Writing and Selling Your Own Ebooks Online? Here are 3 Things It Takes

Self-publishing is hot right now. There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t read where some big company is buying a smaller outfit that caters to self-publishers, or come across a self-publishing success story — you know those ones about a brand new author who self-published and made a fortune.

While I still run my SEO writing company (and am now writing ebooks for clients who are self-publishing them!), I earn enough from my ebooks to make it my full-time business if I wanted to. Then why don’t I you may be asking?

Well, because I have some financial milestones I want to hit over the next few years; I happen to enjoy my work; and I have this little travel habit that keeps dinging my finances. 🙂 Anyhoo, I digress.

In my guest post on e-Junkie yesterday, I gave some insight into what I think it takes to make a full-time living as a self-publisher. Following is some of what I wrote:

I recently realized that I’ve been in the self-publishing game for over a decade. I wrote my first eBook sometime in 2002 (I’ve been erroneously saying 2004 for years). . . . But, it wasn’t until 2010 that I started to make some real money selling eBooks online. That year, I earned over half my annual income from eBooks I wrote and self-published.

I still own/operate an SEO writing company, but if I never picked up another client, I could make a full-time living writing and self-publishing my own eBooks.

Following are three things – in my opinion – that you must do in order to be able to make a full-time living writing, self-publishing and selling eBooks online.

Hope you’re having a great week, and to my American friends, I hope you got your taxes done in time!
