My crime: wanting to write a book on the financial crisis, showing it wasn’t caused by “capitalism.”
My sentence: a publishing deadline of three weeks from then.
But since lots of people would likely write books on the crisis, being first to market was the only way I’d be sure to get a hearing.
It was a harrowing experience. I have never been so exhausted in my life as I was sitting at that desk, trying to stay awake, plowing away at what eventually became Meltdown.
I would not wish this fate on anyone.
A much easier way to create a published product?
A workbook, or a journal. People love them, they capitalize on existing trends, they require very little writing, and I know where you can find done-for-you templates, so you can just plug in your (minimal) text.
Great for a free giveaway to get people on your mailing list, or to offer for sale as your first product.
Plus, copy and paste your receipt into my contact form and I’ll send you a quick screencast video showing you how I give away free things and sell other things — what services I use, how I set everything up, etc. That should save you some frustration.
The early-bird deal is shutting down soon, fyi, so check it out, even on a holiday weekend:
Some of the links on this site are affiliate links, which means I earn a commission if you click on them and buy something. This helps me keep the lights on around here. Naturally, I don't recommend a product unless I have used and benefited from it myself, or I have researched it enough to determine it to be of good quality and likely to benefit my readers. I don't promote anything created by the swamp dwellers. Thanks for reading!
