Want to become a professional blogger?
There's a universe of blogging gigs open to you... if you know how to get them. These jobs are never advertised. You may need to step out of your comfort zone a little, but the rewards are enormous.

Start by making proposals to companies which might hire you -- few writers/ bloggers use proposals: they're a powerful tool.

Kindle Publishing: Serialized Fiction Strategies
Writing a novel can be a hard slog. You lose momentum as you go, and drag out the process. Here's a way to get motivated: publish your novel as a serial, in parts. Each part needs to be a decent length, and you publish on schedule. While there are great benefits to publishing serials, there are pitfalls too:

Minder (British TV series, Dennis Waterman
Who knew that Minder was on YouTube? Wonderful show; loved the Cockney rhyming slang. I've no idea how many episodes are available. This is the first episode. If you're a Minder fan, you can get your fix of Minder trivia at http://minder.org

Write stories your readers love
Want to write stories readers LOVE? If you do, you need to make your stories satisfying. Consider your favorite story. You love it because the characters want something desperately, and they take action to get what they want:

I think you said, but if not, starting point is writing about what you love and then the readers will be more likely to love it too--because of your enthusiasm. Of course you may need to sometimes write stuff that there IS an audience for--or you must write for when you are working for a government agency that must report to politicians--haha, as I did for a while.

You've written a first draft of your book. What comes next?
Editing comes next -- it's the difference between a book which may sell, and a book which WILL sell. Yes, you can hire an editor, but you need to do the basic edits yourself. It's YOUR book, after all, and you know what you want to achieve.

Let's look at a simple editing process -- you'll find that editing is lots of fun. I always enjoy editing, because I know that the book is written:

I will not be editing my book myself. I am a literature guy, the idea guy... I'll hire those English folk to do the editing.

Blogging to sell books
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been focused on writing fiction. Oddly enough one topic came up again and again in my chats with writers: blogging to sell books. (By “books” I mean ebooks too, of course. :-))

There was a lot of confusion around it, and the entire topic of social media in general. Writers asked: “Does blogging sell ebooks/ Do I need to blog/ What do I blog about” etc. These tips will I hope help you to look on both writing books, and blogging, in a new way:
