I’m excited to announce the release of my very first Kindle ebook — 13 Ways to Get the Writing Done Faster.
This 35-page ebook captures the insider tips from a podcast I did with Renegade Writer’s Linda Formichelli, in which we revealed all our secrets of how we speed up the writing process so we can earn more.
It includes a tasty set of Q&A questions and answers from us that happened at the end of the call, too, besides our 13 basic steps to writing faster.
Right now this ebook is FREE through Sunday, Dec. 2 — so grab it over on Amazon now.
And before you ask, yes, it is only on the Kindle — Amazon’s rules say I can’t sell it or give it away here on my site. It’s only on Amazon. But you can get the Kindle reader for your PC or Mac and read it that way, too.
Make a Living Writing:
The 21st Century Guide
Sorry! This ebook has been withdrawn from sale. Look for me to resissue it as several updated, smaller ebooks in 2013.
Look for it to return as several separate, newly updated ebooks — on writing for publications, copywriting, and launching a blog — in 2013.
The first 37 pages of your book taught me more about how to become a true writer than any of the hundreds of other publications I have read to date. From the very depths of my joy-filled heart, THANK YOU, Carol. –Kellie Davis, Mindful Media
Thanks to your great e-book, Make a Living Writing, I am learning more about how to get where I want to be. I’ve had subscriptions to Writers Market before, but I haven’t had the confidence to take it to the next level. Your e-book clearly lays out the processes and strategies for success, step-by-step. It also gives details about a multitude of options, so I don’t have to fit any mold to apply your advice. The only thing that would be better would be having you right here next to me. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.–Natalie Komitsky, Wordsmith
“I just bought your Make a Living Writing ebook and I love it! I’ve been writing for years and you’ve really laid out current writing processes I haven’t seen matched by any other book on freelance writing.”– Shawna Newton, A Touch of Business.
My first e-book, Make a Living Writing: The 21st Century Guide, is finally here! Here’s a Q&A about the book:
Q: Carol, why the heck should I buy your e-book? Haven’t there been like a skillion books about freelance writing already?
A: There have…but give them a skim and you’ll find most are out of date now. The world of freelance writing has changed a lot in the past few years. Many of those old books don’t even have the word “blog” in them, much less tell you how to get paid for writing one. Make a Living Writing is a step-by-step guide to breaking in as a freelance writer and making good money in today’s new-media world.
Q: How long is the book?
A: More than 200 pages of advice, tips and examples of how to earn well from writing!
Q: Who is the book intended for?
A: Basically three groups of writers: New writers, experienced writers who’re new to freelancing, and writers who are established freelancers but not earning as well as they’d like.
Q: What are the main topics of the book?
A: It’s in three main sections — Writing for Publications (both print and online), the Copywriting Crash Course, and Make a Living With Your Blog.
Q: I have a lot of questions about how freelance writing works nowadays. Can you give me an example of some of the questions your book will answer for me?
A: Absolutely! Some of the answers you’ll find inside Make a Living Writing include:
• The first question you should always ask any editor you get on the phone
• Dozens of tips for marketing your business, both offline and in social media
• How to find a business that pays writers well and get them to hire you
• How to break into blogging for pay
• Scores of resources for finding good-paying writing jobs and learning how to earn more
Q: Where can I learn more about what’s inside the book?
Q: Where can I learn more about you?
A: Click here to visit my writer site if you’d like to learn about my writing career or here to learn more about why I started writing the Make a Living Writing blog, and about my passion for helping other writers earn more money.
Q: What does the book cost?
A: The book’s regular price was $36. I’ve been told I should be charging $50 or more given the wealth of detailed information in the book, but I want it to be affordable for many writers who are currently struggling with their earnings.
Q: How can I get a discount price on the book?
It is on sale right now, as it happens! And after this sale, I am withdrawing the ebook from circulation. Watch for a new ebook series to replace it in 2013.
Q: Will you be letting affiliates sell the book?
A: Yes — the affiliate program is now open! Details here.
Q: How come this isn’t one of those hard-sell marketing pages with giant, screaming headlines in red, that goes on and on for miles, telling us our heads are in danger of exploding if we don’t buy the book?
A: Because I think those suck.
