Digital Career Guide

I have just released a new product in my store: The Digital Career Guide. I’ve been working on this for the last three months. It covers what you need to know to set up a successful writing business on the Internet. I talk about everything from attitudes to how to produce captivating fiction, on through the process of publicizing your work, and on into the nuts and bolts of money and why now is probably the best time to be a writer in the history of publishing. And the guide isn’t only useful for starting a business on the net—all of the techniques apply to print publishing as well. The strategies suggested will be very effective during the transition from print to digital, helping you build a solid career.

If you click on the link above, you’ll go straight to my store and can purchase the guide. It costs $30, which is a fraction of what people have paid to hear me lecture on just one of the four aspects covered in the Guide. If you actually want a career, this is the best investment you can make in your drive for success.

As all of you know, I’m involved in raising money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. What I am going to do is this: If you purchase a copy of this book from my website between now and June 30th, $10 of that purchase price will go to Relay for Life. Raising funds for the American Cancer Society is one of the best ways us writers have to guarantee we’ll have an audience to buy our work for a long time. I also don’t want to lose any more friends to cancer, so help yourself out and we’ll help others out, too.

The guide is packaged in a zip file that contains both a PDF and epub version of the Guide.

  1. On my list to buy.

  2. Mike, did you see the front page of The Wall Street Journal(Frday May 21)? It has a huge article on e-books, Barnes and Noble and the IPad. It sounds like they have been following your discussion on

    It seems that your handy-dandy Digital Career Guide is just in time.

  3. Robert,

    I did catch that article. I think you’re right. New York HAS been listening. They have even adopted my pricing scheme.

    Can’t wait for that consulting check to get here. đŸ™‚


  4. Sometimes I like to read on my iphone (I have your serial fiction writing app on my iphone) but I also like hard-copy to read from.

    I want this for my father’s day gift, the only question I have is, Can I download it to my PC laptop (which has my itunes account on it) and have the ability to read it on the laptop or transfer it to my iphone should I desire it that way?

    Thanks for everything!

  5. Mike, I came across an author who is talking in a somewhat similar vain about the future of e-publishing vs trad publishing. He’s posting hard numbers about his e-sales.I don’t know if you know J A Konrath but he has an interseting post.

    J A Konrath said: “I’m selling 220 ebooks per day, and I’ll make over $100,000 this year. But that’s for 15 titles (soon to be 17).”

    You can read the entire post at…

    I am hoping to finish my own e-book and audiobook by the end of this month. If I have any real success I’ll let you know.

  7. The Digital Career Guide doesn’t have an app form yet. The package includes the PDF and epub versions, both of which will work in the iBook app once it’s rolled out for the iPhone. Either can be read on a computer, and you can even print the PDF out.

  8. Thanks a bundle!

  9. Thank You.

  10. Wow just came across “The Secrets” on iTunes and I love it! I have huge dreams and aspiration for becoming a career writer. This guide is for sure on my Father’s Day list. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

  11. Hey Solomon, if you really want something that helped me to get serious about writing. Get the “Secrets” newsletter. Especially the first set. Even for those who feel they are proficient writers, there are points that you will pick up that are invaluable to the writing process.

  12. Mike,

    I don’t know if you heard the recent announcement from Amazon… But, Amazon said that sales of e-books now outnumber the sales of paper books on Amazon.

    It a happenin’
