Want to make more money writing short fiction on Amazon? Look no further! 📚 I’ve been publishing short books under a pen name for the past year and have seen firsthand what strategies lead to success. I’ve compiled my top tips to help you make 10x more money with your short fiction. Keep reading to turn your writing into a profitable venture.
📚Tip #1: Write a series of short fiction books 📚
This is my number one piece of advice for you. A well-written series of short fiction books will outperform a standalone short fiction book almost every time. I have three short fiction series, each consisting of four books, and they are my top earners. By keeping readers on the hook with great stories and characters, you’ll keep money in your pocket. So, how do you create a series of short fiction? You can connect the books through characters, a trope, or a holiday theme. Just make sure each book is a completed work and is connected in a series.
🔥Tip #2: Your cover and title are everything 🔥
Another crucial factor in increasing your book income is your cover and title. Without a great title or cover, you won’t capture a reader’s attention. I personally create my own covers with Canva Pro, but there are plenty of great cover designers out there. For a title, pick something that conveys exactly what your story is about and has catchy, descriptive words. Your subtitle is also important for ranking in the right categories on Amazon. For your cover, make sure it reflects the story and looks professional. If it’s a series, make sure it’s clear they’re connected.
💡Tip #3: Don’t be afraid to repeat tropes that sell well 💡
Don’t feel like you have to reinvent the wheel every time. Tropes sell well, so don’t be afraid to repeat them in your writing. If a certain trope worked well for you in the past, use it again! Just make sure to put your own spin on it to keep things fresh.
By implementing these strategies, you’ll be on your way to making 10x more money with your short fiction on Amazon. Remember, a plan and a strategy are key to success. Happy writing! 📝
