Feedback wanted on my new blog, Passive Income Author

Post by Skellie » December 11th, 2011, 5:59 am

Hey guys - I have recently started Passive Income Author, a blog covering the business side of being a self-published author. I'm hoping to get some feedback on which topics need more coverage in the community, and what you think of my articles so far.

I've written: I'm also trying to organize a guest-post on David Gaughran's blog - will add a link here if I get the privilege to contribute :)

Thanks everyone!

Some great stuff there Skellie. Been wanting to set up a newsletter so I'll check out your suggestions.

Hey Ryan, thanks so much for taking the time to read, it's really encouraging. I'll be writing a more in-depth post on email newsletters soon, so I'll link to it here in case it's useful for you and others.

I'm reading John Locke's self publishing book and he puts a huge emphasis on his 'Guaranteed Buyers' email list, which is a really interesting concept. He believed that he had gathered 1,000 people on the list who would buy anything he released. Not a bad place to be at all! :).

Thanks for the kind words Mira! It always saddens me when people want to write full-time but can't do so because their books don't pay the bills. If my advice can help someone take the leap and make a living from writing, then all the work is worth it.

Skellie, do you think the articles on your site would apply to traditional publishing too?
