The Secrets Issues 144-145: More Career Planning

The latest two issues of my writing newsletter, The Secrets, just went out to subscribers. These two issues combine to address a very serious issue for writers, especially as the digital age slams into publishing and blasts it apart. They are focused on organization and how the digital age will shift what we write and how we make it available. There’s a chaotic storm heading in to publishing and this double issue will show you how to create a solid foundation for weathering the disaster. The information is suitable for everyone from brand new writers to established writers who want to navigate through the difficult times ahead.

Reading these two issues will not guarantee success. Effort is what guarantees success. What these issues will do is to make sure your effort isn’t wasted. They provide guidelines on how you can expand your product inventory both in scope and depth—which we’ll all have to do if we want to prosper in a world where we sell directly to consumers. Simple efforts that never would have paid off for traditional publishers can make individual authors profitable.

These two issues are available as part of the current (Volume 6) subscription to The Secrets. Separately the pair would cost $4, but in the current package they’re only $3. The package includes PDF, epub and mobi format files for your reading pleasure.

I also wanted to remind you of the Welcome to Ebooks package and The Next Step packages. A bunch of you took advantage of the Welcome to Ebooks package to fill your new ereaders.
