So you want to be an author. You want to write a book, or even better, write several books and make money from your writing – a lot of money so that you can work from home. Well thanks to the internet it’s now possible to set up your own writing and publishing business.
You can self-publish your books using print on demand. This means that self-publishing costs are very low and the whole process can be set up and completely automated so that your books are printed, packed and shipped for you while you just carry on writing your next book.
You can also earn more money from writing and publishing eBooks. But whichever way you choose, it can all be done from home using your own computer and an internet connection.
There are many people who want to run their own business from home and want to know how to make money on the internet. And as a writer you already know how to make money writing. You just write and sell books online.
It’s a well-known fact that only around 7% of the population actually go into a book store. Buying books from online book stores and as instantly downloadable eBooks has become the norm for most people who buy books.
So if you set up your book printing to be done only when you’ve made a sale and also sell eBooks on the internet, it can become a very lucrative and desirable way to earn a living.
Other authors have done it and you can too. But first you need the self-discipline to actually sit down and write the books because the more books you write, the more money you can make.
Then you can use the internet to promote your books through web sites, articles, ezines and any other form of online advertising you can find. Give away free excerpts from your book or free reports on your book’s topic.
Just make sure that everything you write to advertise your book really pre-sells it and creates buyers.
So now sit down, write, self publish all your books and make as much money as you want to.
Once you set up your online self publishing empire, you can make money online and earn a residual income for many years to come.
