If you’re a fiction author, you know that short stories sell. They’re useful as promotional tools, and if you’re beginning, they’re a fun way to learn storytelling skills.
Recently, a coaching student told me that one of her little ebooks outsells everything else she’s written. “It’s become the foundation of my self-publishing business,” she said. “This story introduces my readers to my work. I don’t understand why this one story resonates with readers so much, I’m just grateful that it does.”
I know that many authors hesitate to try new strategies, so we’ve created a program to help.
New, The 3-Step Formula: write fast and well
Write once, sell forever—stories sell for decades, even centuries in some cases. In days gone by, short fiction appeared in newspapers and magazines. Today, authors self-publish.
Why another program on writing and selling shorties? One reason: short fiction is powerful.
I’m constantly investigating how to make writing and selling easier. So when I happened upon this formula, I tried it out on my students—even the nonfiction writers. Of course, I used it myself too.
Although the formula’s simple, it encapsulates everything that makes for a satisfying read. Even if you’re convinced that you have no time to write, try it; you can write on your phone.
The formula is easy to remember. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll craft a satisfying story. Why not write several next weekend?
