How to write an Amazon fiction book - coverWell it’s done. Written. Finished. That is the writing is done. And the publishing. Now comes the selling. This is pretty much the most comprehensive treatise on writing and selling books for the Kindle that you’ll find. Kindle and CreateSpace. Okay that’s Kindle and CreateSpace that you’ll f–oh, er and Smashwords. The three platforms that you can learn to write best-selling books for with this treatise are the Kindle, CreateSpace and Smashwords. And of course Lulu.

How to write - paperback coverAll right, this is pretty much the most comprehensive treatise on writing and selling books for the Kindle, CreateSpace, Smashwords and Lulu that you’ll find. Not forgetting, of course, books written in the hope of getting them published by mainstream publishers. Okay, just to make it clear: among the platforms and outlets that you can use the information in this treatise to write books for are the Kindle, CreateSpace… Shall I go out and start again?

Anyway, suffice it to say that this book is available (with slightly different titles) for the Kindle (How to write an Amazon fiction book that SELLS*: *by someone who HAS… MANY TIMES!
) and in paperback (How to write an Amazon book that SELLS: by someone who HAS… MANY TIMES !

And for two days (Sunday 29th November and Monday 30th November) the Kindle edition will be available FREE.

 

For the last couple of months, I have been beavering away (if that’s the right expression) writing a book about creating writing in general and writing for self-publication – especially for the Amazon Kindle – in particular. I figure that as a published author with three books published by HarperCollins and a further four thrillers published by Hodder Headline, I am better placed than most to write about how to write a good book. Also, as someone whose books have sold by the tens of thousands – both for the Kindle and  in print – I am eminently qualified to write a book on how to write a bestseller.

I could have called it how to write a thriller, but I wanted to broaden its scope. Although most of my books have been thrillers, I have also written, science fiction, chick-lit, children’s and young adult fiction, journalism and even literary fiction. So I gave the book a more general title more befitting its content and purpose. The book deals with everything from getting story ideas, developing the plot, viewpoints, dialogue, narrative and descriptive writing to things like motivating oneself, overcoming writer’s block and promoting the book after publication.

It has taken me longer than I expected, because I wanted to make sure that it didn’t have any typos. It would hardly make a good impression if I published a book about how to write and self-publish for the Kindle and then littered the book with typographical errors. (It would be like writing to Gay News and applying for a job as a “poofreader”.) However, now I am nearing the end and so I feel that it I time to share the news. I probably could have done so earlier. In fact, that might have motivated me to work faster!

But anyway, the deed is done (or nearly), so I’m telling you now. I’ll update you all when it is published.

Bye for now.
