This month I finished two books, one a fictional novel set in Hong Kong in the 1970s and the other a non-fiction book about SEO. The former was just finished a couple days ago and needs some editing work, while the later went on sale a few days ago.
So I took what could have been a nerve-wracking month and turned it into something quite productive, and I think lucrative long-term. Both of those books will make me money for months if not years to come. When I look back on this blog post in the future I think I’ll be thankful I didn’t have much work and therefore so much free time to make these wondrous books.
Alright, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get into the details of the month.
Last I heard he’s still shopping around for a cover, and I hope he gets one soon and figures out how to upload books on Amazon. Once that occurs I’ll be sure to put that link here so interested readers can check it out.
Another SEO Book
I didn’t want to turn that away so I published the book with the cover I’d originally wanted. And lo and behold, I wasn’t crucified, burned at the stake, or the victim of a sales stoppage on my other titles. In fact, I managed to sell a few copies and get into the #21 to #40 rank for SEO eBooks on Amazon, right where I want to be to gain exposure and visibility for my eBook.
My Other Writing Work
One consisted of writing an article about dating Asian women and another was a press release for some kind of new weight loss extract, and the harm it can do. I did some moving company content for an old employer and some editing work on a thesis for someone.
Just Plain Slow!
Those are the perils a freelance writer faces, and they create in you a hunger. That scarcity of work was the only reason I was able to push myself so hard this month working for myself. Will it pay off? We’ll see.
