Let me help you write more, write better, and sell more books

Did you know I have a monthly newsletter devoted just to nonfiction writing?

Well, now you do. 🙂

These newsletters (delivered instantly via download) are full of my own personal ideas and experiences, plus some sage advice from well-known authors.

This is not full of regurgitated theories from people who only teach writing, while not being writers themselves.

This is what I know from being an actual published writer for many years now.

Each month, I cover different points you need to know about all of the major aspects of the writing process:

  • Research
  • Book Topics
  • Outlines
  • Writing
  • Editing

If you’re serious about improving your craft, finishing more quality books, and selling more of them on Amazon (and elsewhere), I want you to sign up to receive my newsletter. You’ll be glad you did.

Cozy up to writing (and selling) more books

Did you know:

  • That cozy mysteries are extremely popular?
  • That cozy mystery readers are very loyal and buy lots of Kindle books?
  • That you stand to gain a lot of readers and make a nice monthly income if you write good cozies?

Those are the reasons why you want to get in on this and become a cozy mystery writer.

But it also comes with this important warning:

Cozy mystery readers are very particular. They expect certain elements to be in your story, as well as some things that should NOT be in there. Get these things wrong and you’ll get bad reviews and sagging book sales.

That begs the all-important question:

-How do you know what cozy readers expect?

I wondered about that myself, so I went and found out.

I spent many hours going through book reviews, looking at online reader forums, and checking other related sources.

A lot of what I discovered was very eye-opening. I would not want to write a cozy mystery without knowing what I learned through this research!

And I want to share it with you so you too can write great cozies that make your readers happy and anxious to buy your next book… and the next… and the next.

Show more, tell less – how to master this key to better writing

Experienced fiction writers and writing coaches will tell you, “show, don’t tell.”

They make it sound so easy.

But it’s not – not at first anyway. When I was first given that advice, I researched to get some ideas of how to show more in my stories instead of just telling everything.

I was disappointed with a lot of the advice, especially things like facial expressions of my characters. I found myself trying some of them in the mirror because they sounded so weird.

“Show, don’t tell” is supposed to help your readers, not distract and confuse them.

So, like I often do, I decided that I would figure out show, don’t tell myself. I started making notes as I wrote and read. I made lists.

Now, I still have show, don’t tell issues in my writing. I think I always will to some extent. It’s one of the toughest things to do well all the time.

But since I’ve made myself these handy tools, I can definitely fix my problems MUCH faster and easier than before.

Would you like to share in what I found and tested to make it easier for my own writing?

Here you go: http://malka.biz/show-dont-tell/

I know this will help you a lot if you struggle with showing instead of just telling when you write fiction. Getting better at this one critical aspect of writing fiction will make you write better characters, better action in your stories, and make your readers happier.

The pool-sized puddle idea

It rained here in Haifa today.

If you’re not used to living in a desert country, you might not realize what that means.

But here, when it rains, it pours, and the earth is dry, so the water just swells and swells over the ground.

Outside our door, there was a pool sized puddle. Nefnef wailed when I dragged her over it when we headed off to the park.

And then I stared down into the puddle. Pitch dark. I couldn’t see the bottom.

  • I could write a horror story about the bottomless pit that suddenly swallows people alive.
  • I could write a romance about the handsome prince who saw this damsel in distress and threw his cape over the puddle, so I could walk over dry-footed and wet-eyed.
  • I could write a comedy in which the heroine stepped out in the puddle and got her feet and skirt wet, and that was just the beginning of the day.

There are ideas all around us if you know how to pick them. Not just from dramatic events, but also from everyday stories like walking your dog.

I can show you how you can come up with ideas easily, too.

You’ll see – it’s fun http://malka.biz/endlesskindle/

Did Thanksgiving and Black Friday give you some great stories totell?

How was your holiday? Did you brave the shopping frenzy on Black Friday?

If you had any maddening or funny experiences this past weekend, turn them into story ideas you can use for a Kindle book!

I can show you how: http://malka.biz/endlesskindle/

Even if you’re not in America and don’t celebrate Thanksgiving or do anything for Black Friday, my ebook will help you come up with stories of all kinds.

It’s really simple, but not many writers know how easy it can be.

That’s what my guide – Endless Kindle Story Ideas – is all about. You’ll get tons of ideas by the time you finish.

So write those stories and sell lots of books. 🙂

Turn your Thanksgiving or Black Friday experiences into story ideasand characters

Did you have a lovely, sentimental, completely sane family event on Thanksgiving?

Or did you have to sit next to Aunt Martha and listen to her gossip constantly about everyone she knows between mouthfuls of turkey and fixings?

Did you want to blow up the turkey before Uncle Frank started a drunken brawl?

And how about all the “fun” of Black Friday. Good times, right?

Were you exposed to some… let’s call them “interesting” people or events on Black Friday?

Did you venture out like an intrepid explorer braving the wilds of the New World, only to encounter some “natives” in wild costumes acting like savages?

If you had some vivid experiences like those this holiday weekend, turn them into story ideas you can use for a Kindle book!

I have just the thing to help with that: http://malka.biz/endlesskindle/

Thanksgiving this past weekend was a US holiday, of course, but you can still probably think of many memorable people and events you’ve experienced this year.

They make great inspiration for stories you can write and sell. But you need to know just how to do it.

That’s what you get in my Endless Kindle Story Ideas guide. I hope you like it!

Why can’t you write about whatever you want?

Is it your fear that you don’t know enough about a topic?

That used to really worry me. I think it’s one of the most common problems for nonfiction writers.

So I set out to fix it. 🙂

What I came up with is a way to write a great book about literally any nonfiction topic you can think of… ANYTHING!

I’ve put it together in a handy little guide, and you can grab a copy right now by going to: http://malka.biz/write-about-anything/

You’ll gain the freedom to choose whatever you want to write about and get that book done quickly.

How cool will that be?

Here’s how: http://malka.biz/write-about-anything/

Mastering the art of the mystery

Cozy mysteries are a popular fiction category at Amazon.

You know… stories about everyday people like Miss Marple (Agatha Christie books) and Jessica Fletcher (Murder, She Wrote TV show) playing amateur sleuth to figure out whodunnit.

Good, clean fun… except for the murdering. 🙂

You stand to make a lot of money and build a large following of avid readers if you can come up with cozy mystery books that push all the right buttons in your readers.

Ahh, but there’s the rub. How do you know what cozy readers expect?

I wondered about that myself, so I went and found out.

I spent many hours going through book reviews, looking at online reader forums, and checking other related sources.

A lot of what I discovered was very eye-opening. I would not want to write a cozy mystery without knowing what I learned through this research!

And I want to share it with you so you too can write great cozies that make your readers happy and anxious to buy your next book… and the next… and the next.
