Attention Fiction Writers...
"Done for You - Writing American West Historical Fiction Has
Never Been Easier!"
How many of those did you answer with a loud 'Yes'?
Hi! Just the thought of tackling historical fiction used to scare me to death. I could see that many fiction books about the past were huge bestsellers, but when I knew little about that era, it kept me from trying. Sound familiar?
So much depends on the research!
The hard part about historical fiction writing is not telling a good story. Most fiction writers can do that without too much effort or worry.
The hard part is getting the historical details right. You can't afford to make a mistake about something that was going on at that time or your more knowledgeable readers will spot it in a heartbeat.
It's the little stuff that usually trips up writers of historical fiction:
►What happened when?
►What jobs did people do?
►What were the roles of the men and women at that time?
►How did people get around?
►What were the customs of that time?
But, like I said before, getting all the details right requires a pretty thorough knowledge of the era. And that means research. Lots of it!
That's boring. ZZZZZZZZ
Wouldn't it be far better to have someone else do it? Someone you know you can trust? Someone like ME? :)
Before I tell you more about that, let's see if American West fiction is even worth writing for the Kindle marketplace...
As you can see, Westerns are popular and make writers a lot of money at Kindle:
Even Western Short Stories do relatively well:
And here's even more proof that 19th Century American West fiction is a smart genre in which to write books at Kindle:
Now we know for sure that 19th Century American West is a hot category and well worth spending
time creating books for Kindle!
If you didn't already know this, now you do. It really really sells!
Readers of Westerns are voracious. They blow through book after book.
That means more sales for you! It's another reason why this category is one of the best you could ever choose as an author.
Once you make even a minor name for yourself, readers will line up to buy your next offering... over and over again.
After determining that American West was an excellent category, I set about doing the lengthy, tedious research I knew I'd need.
I spent countless hours, going through I don't know how much coffee. I actually began worrying Nefnef (that's my dog). She wasn't sure what to make of me just sitting there clicking and mousing so much.
But it was totally worth it! :)
After doing so much research, it dawned on me that I could share it with others interested in writing American West fiction, saving them all the time and effort I'd already invested.
And that's exactly why you're here!
This is a MASSIVE amount of high-quality research!
You get nearly 150 total pages in this 5-volume set.
The entire purpose is to give you a clear understanding of life during the 19th century in the American West so that you can write a work of fiction that impresses readers and is free of embarrassing mistakes.

Each volume also includes helpful 'Bottom Line for Writers' sections, where I give you advice and tips on how to use the information in your story writing. Very handy!
There's so much you can use!
Sure, you could do it yourself. Just be aware that this took me a long time to put together. I'm talking about many hours over several days.
Or, you could pay a researcher to do it for you. That's certainly a viable option. There are many competent researchers for hire online. Something of this scale will run you several hundred dollars, easily. And you're likely to get a lot of extraneous information you don't really need.
But honestly, there's no need for you to spend hours on boring legwork. There's no need for you to pay someone hundreds to do it for you.
It's already done!
And I'm not going to ask you for anything close to what a researcher would expect to be paid.
I'm only going to ask you for a fraction of that.
Not even $50.
