Book Writing: How to Stop Feeding the Beast

Book Writing: How to Stop Feeding The Beast

Really Simple Writing & Publishing Series 17

Want to Quit Sacrificing Your Book Income?

Would you like to start making a decent living from your writing instead?

This is the story of how any author can get their life back. Just stop “Feeding the Beast.” The one that has been consuming their livelihood, novel by novel.

As our story begins:

The great beast Zon has been playing favorites again. It’s preying on na├»ve and innocent writers. The ones who dare enter its chamber with offerings of their works.

With a single withering glance, a rapid pounce, the gnashing of teeth, your author-dream is dead. The hope of a livable passive income from vast numbers of readers buying your masterpiece is spit out. It joins the massive, growing bone pile at the beast’s feet.

We all should have taken warning when we had to pass through miles of depressing ebook graveyards that line the entrance to its chambers.

The long lines moved fast, though. The beast must receive its food. One observer from years ago saw that the beast consumed two books per minute, every hour of every day, year in and year out. The beast never sleeps, stays always hungry.

Regardless, we stayed the course. Hearing the clanking chains, smelling the rank musk of decay, we steeled ourselves and swallowed our fears, at last to stand before it. You raised up your offering, just to see it snatched and shoved into the massive maws of Zon the Beast. Your hopes then quick-crushed along with the bones of your darling. All these now lay down in the murky depths of the Unknown Tomes.

While leaving the chamber, you see a special line for those precious few who the beast recognizes and fawns over. Their offerings prized as tasty morsels. And yet the wary eyes of those offering testify that they recognize the beast can revolt anytime it wants. It can deny them their riches as they depart, even ban them from ever coming to feed it again.

Yet they do each leave with their burden of precious metals, jewels, and crystals.

Those in the line, both coming and leaving, all want to hope that one day, they too will can quit their wage-slave labor at the J.O.B. mines. They even buy the undertaker’s trinkets as they leave, so that a talisman may protect their next effort.

We know there are other ways. We all heard the stories of those whose books somehow lived to tell their own tales. Those authors had somehow learned to feed the beast the diet it wants and earned their rewards. It’s not just the prattle of the undertakers we learn this from. Many authors wrote their own success stories of wresting riches from the beast.

You are here because there’s a book inside you that is crying for release. But you dare not give life to it, only to see it killed on the altar of the beast. Yet still it cries out…

Your choice awaits. Riches may flood your arms. Or leave you holding only a glad memory – of the book-that-once-was.

There is a way to avoid this, to publish your book regardless of Zon or other publishing beasts that require feeding.

Are you up for the challenge?

Author Freedom Guidebook – A Self-guided Course

Author Freedom Guidebook A Self-guided Course Your writing and publishing should give you freedom.

And for most people, it doesn’t.

Because only four out of ten thousand authors actually make a living by publishing through Amazon.

Shocking statistics.

As a writer, the solution is simple: learn how the system works. Then do that.

After five years of concentrated research, I’ve narrowed down to exactly what the core basics are that most authors have been missing.

There have been a few breakthroughs:

  • What actually is a platform – and how you already have one.
  • The three habits you have to have in order to succeed.
  • Four steps you need to do before you start writing or outlining your book.
  • The two biggest lies spread in publishing.
  • How you can teach yourself to write classic bestsellers at home.
  • The biggest revelation is that, like Dorothy’s ruby slippers, you already know most of this. The problem is that you’ve been trained not to believe it.

This book is also a course. In 7 simple lessons, you can get started now toward a full-time career as a successful author.

It won’t happen overnight. But you’ll be on your way.

Success is waiting for you, along with your freedom.
