RESPONSE TO HEIDI’S HUSBAND’S ARTICLE

Dear Heidi:

Finally, I’ve taken the opportunity to read Jason’s (your husband’s) article: http://jasonjackmiller.blogspot.com/2011/07/ebook-marketing-models-if-its-good.html. Although I have previously read about this marketing concept, it’s well worth reading again and again.

Similar to Jason, I have never believed a writer writes solely for himself or herself. We write because we want to be read; we want others to enjoy what we have enjoyed writing.

Yes, we write in a social vacuum, or do we? We huddle at the keyboard all alone. However, we are not alone. We have our characters, our settings, plots and subplots, themes, genre(s) and over a million word combinations to define our creative expression on the page.

Writing, in itself, is a social event. Characters talk to each other. They interact. They cry and laugh and love and cheat and do everything in the human gauntlet of day to day expression. If you are a dreamer of dreams, your characters can and will talk to you via your subconscious as you sleep in a state of rapid eye movement.

Although it outwardly appears that we are alone when we write, we are not alone. Our Muse pumps the adrenalin of creative juices into our body, mind, heart and soul. Our Muse adores us as we become ‘high’ on the creative flow of ingenuity and freedom of expression. Our Muse wakes us in the middle of the night. “Write, write,” she whispers in our mind and heart.

When the manuscript is finish the write doesn’t step into the garden and bury it in the compost. We give it to friends and family members. “Tell me what you think. Tell me…tell me!”

In the USA and Canada, and around the world, thousands and thousands of books (all types, shapes and sizes) will be in print (or in electronic print) this year. Unfortunately, the chances of a first book finding a commercial audience are slim, very slim at best. Therefore, throw away the conventions. Throw away the agents or the gatekeepers, the established publishers and the self-appointed experts who disapprove of your creative genius. If you have a self-published book in the form of a POD (Print On Demand) and very few people are buying it, then give it away in the form of an eBook. Yes, there are other marketing techniques, but this one is easy, and it won’t cost you a dime.

We should be reading Jason Jack Miller’s article, hhtp://jasonjackmiller.blogspot.com/2011/07/ebook-marketing-models-if-its-good.html, until it’s one of the foremost thoughts in our head, ’til it is metaphorically tattooed on our forehead.

There’s only one test for success. The examiner is the READER. This isn’t brain surgery. The Reader is the one who will make or break a writer. Throw away your phobias, your fears and doubts, into the garbage. They are not your friends. They are the ENEMY! Therefore, as Jason reiterates, give your book to the Reader. Let the Reader decide if it’s a good read, not the literary agent or gatekeeper to the commercial publishing industry.

BUT what happens if no one likes your fist book? The answer is simple. Write another book, and give that to the Reader.

Three months ago, I offered my first POD book, NEVER REGRET TOMORROW, to two hundred potential Readers. Only ten requested an electronic copy. Then I became distracted. BUT now, after reading Jason’s article, hhtp://jasonjackmiller.blogspot.com/2011/07/ebook-marketing-models-if-its-good.html, a fire has been lit under my rear-end. With my second book, SECRETS, available in Dec. 2011. I will be giving a free eBook copy to anyone who wants to read it. And why not? After over two years of writing and editing SECRETS I truly want people to read it.

In all honesty, I want to be a successful writer who earns a living from his endeavors. However, right now, my writing is a hobby, but it’s a very serious hobby. BUT hobbies can only be commercially successful after many people have enjoyed the fruits of our labor.

And let’s face it. Planting your manuscript in a compost doesn’t really do anything to improve your garden.

PS: Heidi, I’ll be posting this article on my website under the “Omega Diary” section. Also, since you first published my article under “Path To Publication” on your blog I would like to post that as well.

And I finally figured it out. You’re the “Just a Girl” sitting on the bench! Great pic, Jason.

I would have guessed the Grinch, but I’m not a big fan of Dr. Seuss. But, you still walked away with $25,000 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Great smile.
