For 2023 I am pleased to announce work has started on the next book. My genre is Mind Body Spirit because these are the types of books I like to read and buy.
So the next book topic will be on the subject of Mind.
Producing a 30k word book takes a long time. My initial project was going to be a Self Help book which I estimate would have taken me approximately 3 weeks to write and it would have been for sale on Amazon by now – BUT – this topic failed to pass Proof Of Concept. So I had to go back to square one and start again.
I have my new topic and having to work a day job, and volunteer and various other duties, research is going to take me much longer than anticipated. I do try to spend at least one hour each day getting some research done. Once the bulk of the research has been carried out, and if I can write 30k words or more I can then proceed to passing the manuscript to the editor for the next stage in the process.
In my opinion there are 3 types of Writer. There are writers who just love to write and do not care if the book sells. There are writers who write books purely to make money – they may not even have an interest in their book subject but they know that topic will sell. And there’s the 3rd type of writer who enjoys writing their book and wish to only write books that will sell. This is the category I think I would fall into – this time but not perhaps in future. The nice thing about being a publisher is you can organize a book by pulling in a team of researcher, ghost writer, editor and book cover designer – so you are managing a project for a book that you may even have not much interest in.
