Make 2017 YOUR year

Are you dreaming of making it with fiction?

I know I did. When one of the biggest Danish magazines published my short story and sent me a check, I did many happy-dances and thought this was just the beginning.

It wasn’t. Besides one more short story a few years later, I almost stopped writing fiction. I couldn’t get over the gap between having unique ideas for short stories and writing a full novel.

Once I finally did, two years back, and wrote a novella, my struggles were over. One led to 15.

What mattered was that I knew I could do it.

The first one was the hardest. After that I had confidence that I could do it again.

From my struggle came a blueprint to help others conquer the roadblocks. As you know I’ve written several books about fiction, but I think the one that helps a beginner most in going from idea to finished work, is my Fish Out of Water Romance. It gives you a chapter-by-chapter guide to writing your novella or novel.

Take a look here, and make 2017 your year http://malka.biz/fow-romance/

How to write and publish a book in 7 days

Two people have already done it, following this blueprint.

They had nothing when they started, but this is why I took them through:

  • Coming up with an idea for their first book.
  • Write the outline.
  • How to easily write the content.
  • How to proof and edit the book.
  • How to format the book and make it ready to publish.
  • How to publish it.

And they did it all in seven days.

So can you, when you follow my blueprint.

One holiday evening

Many years ago, this time of year, I’d been at my uncle’s to celebrate the holidays.

My little sister, a blonde girl with long, thick hair, long legs and a body with all the right shapes, was there, too.

We didn’t get along well, and on my way home, I thought about her looks and how I really wouldn’t like to be her anyway.

That was the seed (the “sandkorn”) I needed for my first short story, which was later published in one of the biggest Danish magazines.

You’ll never know where there is a story.

Lacking ideas?

In my “Endless Kindle Story Ideas” you’ll learn how to drag ideas out of thin air. They are everywhere around you. You just need to learn how to discover them.

Christmas and Hanukkah start nine days from now (in the evening).

When you get Endless Kindle Story Ideas now, you’ll be prepared: http://malka.biz/endlesskindle/

Drop what you’re doing and check this out… seriously

I don’t often ask people to stop what they’re doing to look at something.

In fact, I’m not sure I ever have before.

But this is worth it…

I’ve been working with an American professional (who has since become a good friend) for the past year or so.

His name is Nate and he helps me with:

  • Proofreading
  • Basic Copy Editing
  • Beta Reading (he gives great suggestions!)
  • Rewriting
  • Researching

I consider myself incredibly lucky to have found him. He does amazing work. He has helped me grow my business and become more successful. I could not have done it without him.

But Nate has run into a sudden family situation and needs some help. He came to me about an offer he wants to extend and I agreed to spread the word.

But that was only after I tried to talk him out of it.

Say what?

Yes, I did try to talk him out of this. The reason is the price. It’s way too low.

I’m not kidding. For what he’s offering to do for a full 12 months, you won’t believe the price. You really won’t.

But he’s doing it because he has to. I didn’t pry, but it’s apparently a family thing that came up and now he has to come up with some funds very quickly.

Nate is a great guy. He is professional at all times and has become a very good friend. I want to help him. I’m asking you to go take a look at his offer and grab a spot if you can.

I am certain that once you see his crazy offer, you’ll want in. But there are only 4 spots and they will go fast. So hurry!

Do it because you see the tremendous value. But also because you’ll be helping a truly nice person with a bad situation he finds himself in right now.

Here are the details and how to order: http://malka.biz/12-months-nate/

Access to writing fun: low price until 9am

Why did you want to become a writer?

To slave over your keyboard, and to hate every moment of it?

Or because you loved writing and wanted your daily tasks to be fun?

If you chose to become a writer for the latter reason, I’m with you. That’s exactly why I wanted to write for a living.

Friday last week, I released a book that’s meant to bring the fun back into your writing (or take you through your first book ever), with the secondary goal of going from nothing to published book in one week.

As a member of my list, I gave you a few days with a lower price, before I make it public for everyone.

That lower price ends today at 9am EST.

If you want to write your book and have fun, grab my book here now: http://malka.biz/7-day-book/

Looking for a good proofreader?

During the last 12 months, I’ve had almost all my writing proofed.

This has meant that even though English, technically, is my third language, I’ve made major improvements.

In other words: I no longer give my native English-speaking proofreader enough work ๐Ÿ˜‰

He’s now looking for more work.

I’m not making any money sending you this mail, but I’m so happy for his services that I trust he’ll be a good match for you, too.

This is what I can tell you:

  • His name is Nate, and he’s American.
  • His English is excellent! Really top class.
  • He’s fast and reliable.
  • He gives me (and you) back proofed documents so you can see and approve edits. (He uses either Word or Open Office.)
  • He also offers feedback, as a beta-reader, of your books.

These are his prices, and I’ve been paying them with joy, because they are really worth it:

  • Proof-reading (spelling and grammar): $5 per 1,000 words.
  • Beta-reading and proof-reading: $10 per 1,000 words.

Minimum order is 1,000 words.

This is how you can have your book (or chapter) proofed:

  • Use your word processor’s built in word count tool and write down the word count (example 10,414)
  • Delete the last two digits (example: 10,414 – delete 14, leaving 104)
  • Click here to order: http://malka.im/proofreading
  • Type your result into the Quantity box (example 104)
  • Click Continue and pay.
  • IMPORTANT: After you’ve paid, click the “Return to Merchant” link to get to the thank you page with further instructions. (You might have to scroll down to see it.)

Same procedure if you want beta reading also, except you should use this link: http://malka.im/proofbeta

After you’ve paid, click the “Return to Merchant” link and you’re sent to a site that will give you instructions to how to send me the file you need proofed and/or beta read.

Sounds good?

I know that I’ve enjoyed Nate’s proofing and comments, and I plan to continue using him for as long as he’s willing to.

Are you frustrated that you can’t write about any topic?

How does it feel when you find a profitable category on Amazon, but it’s not one you’re an expert in, so you shy away?

Nasty, right?

What if you could write about any topic with confidence?

Would that make a difference for you? For your income?

This was something that bothered me a lot.

I would sneak around with Kindle Spy, discovering one profitable nonfiction niche after another, but by the end of the day…

None of the topics were for me.

One day, I’d had enough of leaving those profitable categories to other writers. So I figured out a system, I call it my avatar method, to make me able to write about any topic.

And I’m sharing it with you here ==> http://malka.biz/write-about-anything/

Do you fear that your readers will put down your book?

When you publish a new romance title, are you afraid that your readers will put down your book because of something you wrote?

How do you feel when a reader leaves a one-star review because of something she hated in your book?

I did detailed research about what makes romance readers put down a book and never buy anything from that author again, and some of the issues are straight up out scaring.

Seemingly innocent details… Boom! There goes that reader.

Other authors will tell you to do such in-depth research before you write. I haven’t seen anyone else offer this.

But here you can get Romance Deal Breakers and save your time and energy for writing: http://malka.biz/romance-deal-breakers/

Lifetime access to fiction plots

This offer is so good that several customers bought twice ๐Ÿ˜€

No joke.

Bill Platt is offering lifetime access to his fiction plots with a HUGE discount for a limited period.

If you don’t already have it, you should take a look at what he’s offering. The price is only $197 for lifetime access.

You must use the coupon code dec2016 though to get the discount.
