Whodunnit? How to write better mysteries

Fair play is a big deal among mystery readers. And cozy mystery readers are no different.

Fair play just means you (as the writer) must give enough clues to your readers so that when you reveal whodunnit, it does not anger your readers. It’s a common complaint when fair play is violated in a mystery.

Readers expect this and other things when you write a cozy mystery, and you need to know what they are.

If you make readers feel duped or like they had no way of figuring your mystery out from the clues you left, you’ll have upset readers for sure.

How to avoid these kinds of mistakes is the focus of my latest product, which I’m calling Cozy Mystery Deal Breakers.

Check it out here: http://malka.biz/cozy-mystery-deal-breakers/

There are lots of things cozy mystery readers expect, and if you don’t get these right, you risk upset book buyers and bad reviews.

Fortunately, it’s not hard to avoid these common pitfalls. But you have to know what to avoid before you can avoid them, right?

That’s what you’ll get here.

Beyond the idea of fair play, you get help with:

  • Your Sleuth’s Brain and Occupation
  • Setting, Side Characters, and Killers
  • Romance and Love Interests
  • Violence, Gore, Sex, etc.
  • Surprises from Cozy Mystery Readers

If you have any interest in writing cozy mysteries – or really any kind of mystery book – I know this will help you.

And for a limited time, you can get this for the lowest price I’ll ever offer. So even if you think your mystery writing days are in the future, grab this now and be better armed to write great books.

You’re not lacking time

Unless you can prove to me that your days have fewer than 24 hours, you’re not lacking time.

You’re lacking energy to spend your time wisely.

Yesterday, I recorded a short video talking about how you can get more energy to write nonfiction.

It’s on YouTube. Find it here https://youtu.be/rtrNprQwyV4

Your own high quality book or info product – done for you and readyto sell

In case you missed it earlier today, I wanted to let you know about something I’m offering to just 4 lucky subscribers…

How would you like me to write you a nonfiction book or info product of your very own on any topic you choose?

It will be 100% yours to do with as you please, as though you wrote it yourself. Totally new, not rehashed junk or PLR.

Better yet, I’ll do it cheap.

You’ll get high quality, pro writing you can put your own name on and sell – all for a lot less than you’d pay even an average ghostwriter. I’m not average. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sound good?

Here’s what to do: http://malka.biz/dfy-ebook/

But hurry! It’s limited to just 4 people, and it’s first come, first served. So check out the offer page and order fast if you’re interested.

If you get there and the order button is gone, others beat you to it. Sorry!

Want it done for you? Here’s your chance

I remember when I was first starting out as a writer (and later as an internet marketer).

I was nervous a lot and doubted my ability and the quality of what I created and asked others to buy from me.

It’s a pretty scary prospect until you’ve done it a few times.

Maybe you’re in that same position now. Or, maybe you’ve actually started a book or info product and lost steam.

I know how that can be, believe me.

If you could just finish something you knew was of the highest quality, you’d be emboldened to go offer it to the masses.

I know the power of finishing and then selling something you create. I want you to experience that part of it, so I’m ready to offer to do it for you.

If you’d like me to write you a great nonfiction Kindle book or an ebook info product, I have a special discount offer I’d like you to see.

Just go here: http://malka.biz/dfy-ebook/

But hurry! It’s limited to just 4 people, and it’s first come, first served. So check out the offer page and order fast if you’re interested.

Black Friday? Boring… You need Raven Friday

You’re about to be inundated with Black Friday emails.

  • 1000-inch TVs for $20.
  • Spiffy new computers for $2.50.
  • The Christmas-toy-of-the-year for $1.

Yawn. Been there, done that. ๐Ÿ™‚

All you have to do is camp out in the cold next to smelly people who are probably going to run you down with a shopping cart to get the goodies before you do.

But THIS weekend is my Raven Friday Bundle Weekend.

I’m offering some of my best writing guides and reports I’ve ever done for their lowest prices ever.

No driving, camping, or cart races required to get the deals. No smelly people. No trips to the ER, either.

All you have to do to get great deals is to click below…

Beat Black Friday – this weekend only

Tick.

Tock.

Tick, Tock.

Tick, Tock.

No, it’s not the heartbeat of the murder victim that’s buried in your basement.

It’s the clock ticking.

Time is running out on the biggest deal of the year.

I’ve made just about every guide and report I’ve written available in bundles that are at least half price.

I’m calling it Raven Friday Bundle Weekend. “Early Black Friday” would have been shameful for a Poe fan.

If you miss out on these bundles, you won’t get another chance.

They’ll be offered Nevermore.

Snag a deal here: http://malka.biz/raven-friday/

What is Raven Friday? You’ll want to find out

I’m a Poe fan, and “The Raven” was the poem that made him a household name.

Poe was critical of other writers. In fact, most of what we know about Poe is probably comes from a biography written by someone mercilessly critiqued by Poe.

But he still managed to find inspiration from other writers.

“The Raven,” for example, was inspired by a talking raven from a Dickens story. The meter was inspired by an Elizabeth Barrett poem.

I talk daily to other writers. Some are talented veterans and others are beginners still trying to find their ways.

If you don’t have a lot of interaction and input from other writers, I’d love to help supply some inspiration that you might be missing.

I was asked by a writer friend if I would offer anything for Black Friday.

My answer is Raven Friday – Bundles at the lowest prices I’ve ever offered.

My guides and reports are written based on what I’ve learned – through research and trial and error. Based on that, I’ve put together some themed bundles that should include everything you need to help you write.

Bundle #1: Historical Fiction

Bundle #2: Romance

Bundle #3: Get off Your Rear and WRITE (Handy for you NaNoWriMo writers)

Bundle #4: Superbundle for Greedy Writers ๐Ÿ˜‰

Discounts are this weekend only.

Wait. I should instead say:

When will these discounts be offered again? Nevermore.

Get more book sales the way many Amazon best sellers do

Here’s the dumbest question anyone will ask you today…

Do you want to sell more of your books?

Duh! ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, isn’t it frustrating when you know you’ve written a good book but it just doesn’t sell very well?

I got tired of not knowing why, so I went out looking to find some answers.

I concentrated my efforts on what the pros do (even though some of them probably don’t even know they’re doing it). I looked only at Amazon Best Sellers.

What I discovered is very interesting. Some might even say it’s a little shocking.

It’s definitely eye-opening.

If your income relies to any extent on selling what you write, you need to know what I discovered.

It’s a lot to cover, even though it’s actually simple and easy to put into action.

So I’ve decided to teach it in a 5-day course. I’d love it if you joined me!

Get the details and sign up here: http://malka.biz/connect-with-readers/

Selling more books. Isn’t that the goal? This is how to do it.

There are limited spots available and I doubt that I’ll ever divulge this information again. It might be your only chance. Don’t miss out!

How to use AMS as your personal ATM (case study)

One of our Skype mastermind members did an awesome case study, and he’s sharing it with us.

If you’ve considered using Amazon’s advertising service (AMS) but haven’t dared, then you will love his step-by-step walk through of the process.

Better than that – Richard Lowe Jr. tells you what works and what conditions you must have in order, before you should invest in paid advertising.

And then he goes on to use AMS with a budget of $1 per day. And getting clicks for less than a dime.

I tested this myself, and it’s true. Those clicks are incredible cheap. And what better place to advertise than right on Amazon’s own pages, where your customers are only one click away from buying?

You should check this out. It’s selling on a dime sale, starting at only $15.

Tricks I use to get more writing done fast

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes go through phases where I can’t seem to get much done. I sit down to write and nothing happens.

I’m not really talking about writers block here. I mean being productive. Taking an hour to write and actually writing.

When I want to but just can’t seem to, that’s so frustrating! Ugh.

Every go through phases like that, where what is usually easy becomes nearly impossible?

Well, that has happened to me over the years more than I care to admit. And I finally got tired of it enough to find solutions.

And I have. I’ve got several tricks I’ve discovered and use to keep me on track as I write.

Writing for yourself means being your own boss. Sometimes we forget that, I think.

And being your own boss means you have to find ways to get the work done even when it’s tough.

That’s just how it is. Know what I mean?

So I found some solutions for those tough days. What I wanted was to be able to get some writing (or other work) done quickly – right now – not later.

These are quick solutions, not long-term strategies. If you want to sit down today, in the next few minutes, and get a project started (or finish one you’ve been working on too long), this is what you need.

All I can tell you is these things work for me. That’s why I’m sharing them with you.

I think you’ll find them to be very helpful if you get “stuck” sometimes and just need something simple and quick to get you unstuck.
