Be An Author And Write About Your Passion

0 Comment

Be an authorLearn how to write a short Kindle eBook fast, get it ready for sale, and make money. Find out what people want to read about, write a book targeted at those people, publish it, and sell it on Amazon. Sounds like a dream, right? Yet it’s completely true. You can write and sell non-fiction eBooks fast and furious.

I’ve been writing for most of my life. In fact, I wrote my first book, albeit primitive, about geology when I was just eight years old. It was actually pretty good – given that I was so young – and gave some excellent information about rocks and the earth and how it relates to human society.

In those days, we didn’t have computers and my parents didn’t own a typewriter, so the entire manuscript was handwritten. Since I was very young and had just learned how to write cursive (handwriting), it took a long time and a lot of patience.

Over the coming years, I wrote hundreds of articles which have been published all over the web, plus my own autobiography and a family history, which I published myself for other family members. As a computer specialist and manager, I wrote over a hundred technical documents to train users and others on products and services.

Writing is a passion of mine. I love to write and communicate ideas and facts to other people to help them with their lives. By the time I took an early retirement at age 53, I had dozens of non-fiction books started and in various stages of completion, plus another dozen novels. Everything was outlined and sitting in folders, and I presumed never to be completed.

Yet in spite of all of this writing, none of my works were published or for sale to others. I despaired of ever being published.

At that point, my life changed. I discovered Udemy.

Udemy has a massive selection of courses. All are short and to the point, and filled with tips and techniques on every conceivable subject. After finding this treasure trove, I took dozens of courses about how to write, market, promote and sell books. These courses are filled with practical advise, and by using the information gained, I was able to build a career as an author. Within a short time, I’d produced two bestsellers and written over 60 books.

In 2018, I’d been publishing my own and ghostwritten books for years. I decided it was time to share the knowledge I’d gained with other authors.

I founded Fiction Master Class, which contains a large number of specialized training courses to help authors write, publish and promote their books. I wrote these courses myself focusing on the questions and solutions that I know are important to writers.

I suggest you take a look through these selections of courses and find a few that will help fill in the gaps in your knowledge. You’ll be happy you did.
