Manga books are those glorious semi-cartoon images, with stories created for both children and adults, and they are often the work of solopreneurs! The market is immense! The growth chart for sales of manga books is waaaay off the charts. Don’t believe me? Just take a peek at Amazon and search for “manga”. When I did it just now, I got over 130,000 results in books alone, not even counting Kindle editions. That’s a lot of titles. That means that a lot of people are interested in this kind of book. And take a look at the list along...Read More
It seems like every romantic place online has been written about a gazillion times, at least I thought so. But my cohort reeeeally wanted a site about romantic places in California, especially for us older folks. So I started looking, and yes, there were a lot of sites about San Francisco and la Jolla and Montecito and other places, but none of them focused on the romantic aspects of those places. Gee willikers, I thought, here was a wide open area. So our site came into being. We called it “California Rendezvous”. You won’t find it online anymore. When...Read More
So … I’m writing about a picnic website as winter is descending upon us? You bet. Sure, picnics are fun in spring and summer, and even fall, and they are also a joy in the wintertime. How would your sweetie feel if you put together a picnic basket, added a rose on top, then stretched out a blanket in front of your fireplace? aaaaaaah. So romantic. That’s one of the real hidden secrets of a picnic website: they are profitable no matter what the weather, or where in the world you live. Picnics are simply romantic. There are just...Read More
An online fund raising pro is the one who knows the intricacies of those incredible online fund raising services. These services would have you believe that everyone who posts on their site ends up raising lots of money. That is so Not True. The truth is that a tiny fraction of those who post actually raise funding, and very few raise as much as they originally intended. The truth is that there are a whole lot of scammers who know this. These scammers try every way imaginable to separate the money from the entrepreneur, with promises and schemes that...Read More
No, I haven’t totally lost my cookies telling you to promote banned books. Commercially, yes, it is a great idea, and one that is well suited to an internet based business. Philosophically too it is a great idea. Just look at those books above. They are but a tiny selection of books that have been banned! Harry Potter has been enjoyed by millions of readers, young and old. Shel Silverstein’s In the Attic is a classic of children’s poetry — I looooved reading from it when I was a children’s librarian. The Color Purple, The Kite Runner — absolute...Read More
You betcha! Thanks to the creative folks in Amazon, anyone can have an online business with movies and videos of all sorts. Creating movies has never been easy. The script, the actors, the director, the producer, the costumes, the special effects, the cutting and editing, etc., etc. A lot of work goes into making a movie, whether it is a success or not. Then there is the distribution. Movie distribution and screen time at independent movie festivals are both really tough to get. We have a great independent movie festival in my town, and I think they turn down...Read More
Gosh, we’ve all thought about writing professionally from time to time, and learning how to be a professional blogger sounds like a pretty good gig. Sometimes it really can be a great gig; and sometimes it is just a dud. In truth, there is a lot to commend becoming a professional blogger. For starters, it is a job you can take anywhere. If you move a lot, or travel a lot, this may be a natural for you. And it offers all the independence you could want. You can work your own hours, no matter what hours those are,...Read More
A Kindle shortie (technically a “Kindle short read”) is one of the great ways to make money writing books and short stories, both fiction and non-fiction. This refers to a way that an author can create something, and earn money, before finishing her whole book, or can simply create a short book. That’s important. Most books take a long time to write. Most writers are not wealthy, so they take waitressing or secretarial jobs to tie them over until their book is published. That can be a long time. What if you took the first chapter of your book,...Read More
