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.

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!

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.

I kept the price as low as I could, but it’s going up soon. So grab a copy now and it won’t set you back more than a trip to your favorite fast-food restaurant. ๐Ÿ™‚

What would most ring your cozy readers’ bell?

October 11th, I received an email from a subscriber. She wrote:

I was reading over your characters sketches and I’m trying to find some details on my cozy readers. What would most bring their bell. I know the age group is a little older but they don’t necessarily want to read about senior citizen stuff. Most of the cozy books that are seniors don’t do very well

Any help would be much appreciated my dear

I accepted the challenge, went through thousands of blog comments, forum comments and reviews.

And now I’m ready to share what I found with you:

Your guide to ring your cozy readers’ bell ๐Ÿ™‚

How to add instant conflict

Do you believe in reincarnation?

I use to be in doubt. I am no longer.

My dog, Nefnef, is a reincarnated crazy cat lady.

Nefnef-looking-for-cats

That’s not without problems, as you can imagine. She’s there, wagging her tail, whimpering, even saying “ach” (her sound for “cat”) several times, and at best the cat just sits there, staring at her. Wondering what that crazy dog is up to.

There’s an instant conflict there.

Dog vs. cat.

Obviously, they are off to a rough start.

But that just makes for such great conflict, doesn’t it?

The thing about rough start romance, though, is that you have to get it right.

You have to be sure you’re not putting your readers off and make them want to put down the book.

And how do you know?

Well, you can do what I did: Spend hours and hours on forums, blogs and reviews.

Or you could profit from my work and just get the research done, filtered and summarized here:

The big mistake most romance writers make – and my solution

You probably already know this if you pay any attention to my emails or buy any of my writing products… I do a lot of reader research.

I don’t want to rely only on what I think or some theory that I read.

The best way to become a better writer – other than writing a lot – is to listen to what readers have to say.

I mean REALLY listen to them. That means the good AND the bad.

If you only hear the praise, how will you ever know what readers DON’T like so you can fix it?

So I’ve spent a lot of time recently checking out online reader forums, blogs, and book reviews.

I was specifically wondering what romance readers like and dislike.

Not just for writing in the romance genre, by the way. Lots of other genres involve telling stories that have romantic relationships between characters, right?

So I wanted to find out what made readers happy, as well as UNhappy, about the romance aspects of the books they were reading.

Well, did I ever get an eyeful!

Romance readers are not afraid to say what they really hate. Whew! It was a real revelation and sometimes not very nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

So I decided to put what I’d found into a new product. I want to help fiction writers avoid these common mistakes in their romance books and romantic sub-plots in other genres.

The goal is to please more readers and sell more books.

Romance readers are picky. They’re hard to please.

But you’ll be armed with everything you need to avoid common pitfalls once you get your hands on what I’ve just finished.
