E-Book Or Print Books

Every writer wants to hold their book in their hands.  I am one of those people.  I want to hold my books in my hands.

I also want to sell books.  My first book was a print book, through  I sold books to friends, customers from my day job and gave some away.  Later I put the book on  I would check my sales and be thrilled to have made a sale.  People that I didn't know were buying my books.  I am more happy and thrilled when someone buys my e-books that I don't know. 

I then learned that I didn;t have to write 100,000 word novel, I could write 5,000 word story and publish it on Kindle.  If I write fast, I could write and publish a short story a month.  Wow! There is a thought. 

To put the idea to the test in 2014 I wrote and published a short story every month, sometimes I wrote and published 2 E-Books.  I was totally focused on my writing this year.  I now have 48 E-Books published on Amazon.

I have written fiction and non-fiction.  I thought I was doing good writing and publishing monthly, then I discovered that others were writing and publishing monthly.  They are doing it the same way I am, just weekly instead of monthly.  So it can be done.

What about Print Books? 

Print books are great, but they need to be longer, What reader is going to pay money for a print book plus shipping and handling that is only 30 pages long? 

What I have done.  The first 12 short stories were a series.  Me VS Zombies I combined into one book Zombies Invaded My World 

I then wrote the next 12 more short stories.  I thin combined those 12 stories into one book Zombies are the Future 

I used Createspace

I also put the books as E-Books  You have have both.  E-Books & Print Books.

Write shorter E-Books while you are working on longer books.

You can have both.

The IMPORTANT thing is DO NOT pay someone where you have to buy large quanaties at one time.  With Createspace you don't have to buy any books.  You can buy one book or 1000 books. 

It is called Print On Demand  POD  When you sell a book.  They print the book and ship it out.  You do nothing. 

Having Print books is great for book signings or giving them away.

E-books is a great way for selling your book to the world. 

It is your choice.

I choose both.  I do both Print and E-book.


I am living proof that one can have a writing career without going into debt. 

Here on this blog I will write what I know and will hold nothing back.  I am tired of people scamming people out of their money.  DO IT YOURSELF.

Any questions???  Just ask

Publish Your Book For Free

Do not go into Debt getting your book published.

I have 48 E-books on Amazon.

How did I do this in 3 years?

I wrote and published a short story every month, sometimes 2 a month. 

I learned to do things that I didn't know how to do.

I learned to Format my files.  Kindle has it free on their website on how to Format, in PDF Form or E-Book form. 

I learned how to format for Kindle and now I can publish on my schedule and don't have to wait for someone else to do it for me.

This is KEY to publishing on your schedule and not someone's schedule. 

Kindle has a Kindle Book Converter.

You can create Book Covers for FREE. 

Stop listening to others telling you that you can not do it yourself.

I am here to tell you that you do not have to go into debt to become a published writer. 

By December I will have 50 E-Books on Amazon.  That was a personal goal for me.  I wanted to see if I could do.  I learned as I went.  I don't know everything.  I do know that it can be done. 

The new year is coming.  What are you waiting for?  Learn something new and see your dreams become a reality.

Write From Your Heart

What do you really want to write?

A thriller?  A romance?  Something out of the box?  Something that others had said would never sell?

Don't write what you think will sell.  Write what you want and don't listen to anyone, except your heart.  You are the only one that can write your own story.  So write it. 

You don't have to talk about your writing.  You don't have to tell everyone you see and meet about your writing. 

Write your story.  Format your story for Kindle.  Publish your story on Kindle.

Get you story out into the world, you will be surprised that your story is good.  You will be surprised that others are buying your story.  You will be surprised that you are a writer and selling your story.

Stop listening to others.  Listen to your heart.

You are a writer.  Start living and acting like a writer

Writing Goals for New Year

This year I decided to have 50 E-Books published on Amazon by December 2014.

As of October of 2014 I have 48 E-books on Amazon.

I concentrated all year on writing and publishing an E-Book every month.  I have 2 E-Books to go and I know that is within reach.

This year has been a learning process.  I learned that I can write and publish quickly if I want to.  I learned how to be focus and determined to reach my goals and deadlines, even though I have no one to answer to except me.

2015 is around the corner.  I have new goals.  I won't be witing and publishing every month.  I want to write longer stories.  I now can sit at the computer longer.  When I started I could only write 100 words at a time.  Now I can sit and write 3,000 words in one sitting.

I started out as a Paranormal Romance Writer.  I then switched to Zombie Writer with my Series Me VS Zombies.

2015 I am going to go back to Paranormal Romance Writer.  I have 4 book ideas I want to write.  I have purchased the Book Covers and in my mind the stories are written.  I just need to get them on paper. 

Although Zombies are in the stories, but also there will be spirits and ghosts along the way. 

Romancing the Zombie Apocalypse  Is my new Brand.  I am no longer the 99 Cent Zombie Writer.

I changed the Brand to extend into other aspects of Romance and the Paranormal and keeping Zombies.

I am thinking outside of the box.

What are your goals for 2015????

It is a New Year--  New Goals-- New Beginning--

Create Deadline and Goals and see where your writing will take you.

Uplug from the World

I spent the last week with no phone, no internet, no computer.  I survived.  Could you?

I needed a break.

This past year I have published one or more short story every month.  I was drained.  I am 2 E-Books from having 50 E-books on Amazon.  That is my goal this year.  To have 50 E-books published on Amazon.  I am close, then my I started getting distracted.  I have like 5 books started.  I couldn't focus on one single story.  So what did I do?

I spent most of my time on facebook and twitter.  I wrote a little, but my word count was down and I was not getting anywhere.  I checked my sales all the time.  I felt like I was on a treadmill and going nowhere.

The week is over and I didn't miss anything.  I am more focused and I know what I need to do.  I made the goals for next year.  I am more focused and ready to write.

I just hit the publish button for Episode 32 of Me VS Zombies.

I have the next Episode started.

I am working on a Non- Fiction book.

I haven't checked my book sales this month.  I decided not to check my sales till the end of the month.  I am going to write whether I sell books or not. 

I need to focus on my writing and not how many books I sold today. 

I feel that writing is what I do.  My word count us up and I only have 2 more E-Books to reach my goal.  I know I can make my goal for the year.

I am looking forward to next year.  I know next year will be more productive.  I know that I can unplug anytime and survive.

Are you willing to Unplug?

Vegan by Day Zombie Killer By Night

I have been a Vegetarian most of my life, since I was around 10 years old.  I have tried to go Vegan.  I am about 80% there.  I haven't been able to give up my cheese, pasta or pizza.  Eating meat is no problem for me.  I do not eat meat, fish, chicken or seafood.

I have been a writer most of my life, since I was in grade school.  I have never stopped writing, even when I recieved rejection letters.

Now I am self-published writer.  I have 47 E-Books on Amazon.

How have I done this in 3 years?  Writing everyday and publishing every month. 

E-Books are different than Print books.  The length of an E-book can be from 5,000 words to 100,000 words or more.

Short Stories is the key to getting your name out there.  Writing a 100,000 word novel takes awhile, least for me.  I can write, edit and publish a short story in less than a month.

In my Book:  How to Write 12 E-Books in 1 Year

I explain how I started in 2013.  Only 99 Cents

The Truth about Being a Self Published Writer Tells what most writers won't admit about Being Self Published.

I am thrilled to see my dream of being a writer come true.  Now I want to help other writers see their dream come true.

Have a Question??  ASK.  I will answer your question if I can. 

I have a love for animals so I am a vegetarian.  I have a love for horror genre.  I love to kill Zombies.

So who ever you are, what ever you write, you are not alone.

DIY Writing Tip #1 Stay Positive

DIY Writing Tip Number 1

Stay Positive

I firmly believe that WORDS are ALIVE.

What you say will become your future.

So speak nothing negatively.  I know that is not an easy thing to do.  Never say, I will never learn how to do this.  I will never sell a book.

Speak only Positive Words.  I have sold 10 million copies of my books.  I am Self Employed at a Writer.

I believe that your life will change, if you change the way you think.

I never thought I could learn to format my files to Kindle.  I learned it and now I can publish when ever I want. 

I never thought I would have a writing career.  Now I am telling others what I have learned.

Never give up.

Quitting is not an Option!

Start thinking Positive Things and Speak Positive Words.

Non Fiction Series

I now have 4 Non-Fiction Books out on Kindle.  Priced At 99 Cents Each.  My sales have been up since I started writing Non-Fiction Books.  I am still writing Zombie Books.

I am not saying that one has to write both Fiction and Non-Fiction.  I am saying that there is a market out there for Non-Fiction and why not tap into that market.  Write what you know about.

I have learned everything on my own.  No one helped me, except GOD.  I am sharing what I have learned so you might not make the same mistakes that I did.  If I tell you what I learned, you will be able to start selling more books sooner, since you won't have to learn on your own.

 This is the follow up book from My Bible--My God  Words are alive.  What you speak is what you will have.  This is from the series Walking with GOD Series

This is the 1st Book in the DIY Writing Career  This is how I wrote 12  E-Books in one year.  I learned to write and publish quickly.  The more books you have out, the better your sales are.


I learned DIY and so can you.

I learned to format, which I thought was impossible, so easy.

I used Amazon Book Cover Converter for the Covers

I did pay for the Zombie Book Cover but since I bought more than one cover, I worked out a deal with my cover artist.

This is only the beginning.  Whether you write Fiction or Non-Fiction or both, you can DIY.

Write The Book!

It is already May.  The year is half over.  What have you done?  Is the book complete?  Have you written anything?
Don't worry.  Don't despair.  Now is the time.

I know that writing a 400 page book is a daunting task.  It is overwhelming.  I have a solution for that.
Write a scene at a time.
Write a scene a week.
Write a scene a month.

Whatever you can do, that is what you write.  No pressure.  It is your book.  The important thing is to write, no matter what.  Write a sentence a day.  Write 100 words a day.  The more you write, the more you will want to write, the more pages you will write.

I have been writing and publishing a short story a month for the past year.  It is hard sometimes and sometimes it is not.  That is my goal. 

I also started a 400 page novel.  100,000 words. Let me tell you, I would rather right a short story, but the characters are screaming in my head to get their story told.

So I will still write a short story a month and work on my novel. 

Here is the short story for the Month of May

Zombies Are Adapting

Work In Progress (WIP)  100,000 word Time Travel Zombie Romance

I already have the first 5 chapters plotted out.

Dream Big!

Only you are limiting yourself.

I am on a journey.  Will you join me?

All you have to do is follow your dream.

You don't have to go into debt to be published.

You do have to write the book

Where did I get my book covers? has done all my covers for Me VS Zombies did my cover for Zombies & Love Through Time

I spent less than $50.00 on each cover. 

I buy my covers ahead of time to give me the inspiration to write the book. 

Get Starte.  Write the book and get Published!

Published Writer No Longer a Dream

This is my newest book  Only 99 Cents

I combined Episodes 12-23 of Me VS Zombies into one book.

This is the first book of the Series Me VS Zombies

I combined Episodes 1-9 into one book.  I wrote 2 bonus episodes in this book. 

I now have 37 E-Books on Amazon.

I started Publishing in 2011.  I started out thinking I was only going to write 1-2 books a year.  Then I decided to see if I could write a short story once a month.  I started in 2013.  The more I write, the more ideas come to me.  It is like a muscle, it needs to be worked. 

If I can do this, so can you.

You can find all my books at

I sometimes Publish 2 short stories a month.

Publishing is no longer a dream, it is a reality.  The only thing you need is DETERMANATION.  The willing to learn and to never quit. 

Friday, March 7, 2014

Self Publish for FREE

You read the title right.  You can self publish for Free. has made it simple and easy.  All it takes from you is determantion.  It is not hard.  It is not high tech.

I publish a short story every month.

I have paid for my book covers.  I have also used the kindle cover converter.  Cover cost me nothing.

I learned to format my files.  It is easier than you think.  Amazon has a book on how to format your files. and the book is FREE .

Beware of websites who offer to do the services for a fee.  You can do it on your own. 

Go to browse the website and see what they have to offer.  All my e-books are published on amazon.

Something else to remember.  An E-Book does not have to be 50,000 words or 100,000 words.  It can be a few at 5,000 words. 

You can write a 5,000 word short story, create a cover from the kindle website, format the file and upload the file.  FREE

I do this once a month.

It did take me awhile to learn to format, but once I jumped that hurdle, nothing is stopping me now. 

What are you waiting for?

Some people might talk you out of doing this.  Some people might call this a hobby.  Don't listen to anyone who is negative.  This is your dream.  This is for you.

Have any questions???  Ask.  I will do my best to help you. I am doing this blog to help others see their dream become a reality.

I had a hard time writing 100 words a day.  I then started writing everyday, even if it was one word or one sentence or 1,000 words.  I discovered the more I wrote, the easier it was to write.  Like anything else, it takes practice.

I now write everyday.  In longhand or on the computer.  I write wherever or whenever.  In the car, waiting for a doctor appointment, at work, on my breaks.  I carry a notebook everywhere I go. 

My goal was to be a published writer and that is what I am.  That is what I am doing.  So can you.  What is stopping you from seeing your dream become a reality?  It is you.  You are the only one stopping you.

Amazon has made it simple and easy to get publish.   Look around their website and see what it is all about.
