  What You Need to Know about Writing Romance

You can make a lot of money writing romance – a lot.

It’s not a pipe dream and it’s why so many are attracted to this genre, especially now that it’s so easy to self-publish.

But, there are a few things you should know before you start to write in this genre. Following are three of the most important.

I. Romance Writing is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

To be blunt, removing dumb, blind luck from the equation, most romance writers are not going to make a crap load of money writing just one book. So if you write one and it doesn’t sell, don’t give up and think, “There’s no money to be made writing romance.” It’s not true.

Money is made in romance writing – in fact, in self-publishing in general if truth be told – by volume. I didn’t start earning over $2,000 per month until I’d written 15 novellas.

So keep writing.

II. Most of Your Sales Will Come from a Few Books

If you could pinpoint which few, you wouldn’t have to write so many. But, you just never know what’s going to “pop” with readers. When one does, it’ll drag sales of others along with it.

This is the thing I love the most about publishing romance. Romance readers are prolific readers and if they like your work, they’ll keep buying from you. This makes it relatively easy to build an audience as a romance author.

One thing you should know is that no matter how many books you publish, most of your sales will likely come from just a few of your titles. I see that in my non-fiction book too. It just seems to be a publishing truism.

III. Romance Writing Is a Skill that Can Be Learned

One of the biggest fears many aspiring romance writers have is that they won’t be good enough. This is a normal fear. But writing romance is a skill that can be learned. So don’t let your fears stop you; push through them. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

This course will give you all the tools you need to start making money writing romance – even turning it into a full-time career if that's what you want.

So welcome, and let's get started.

Happy writing!
