Get Rich Writing Fiction

Written by Michael LaRocca

Continued from page 1

Your heroine should be tough, sweet, sensitive, and very horny, and has to think she's not attractive even though every guy inrepparttar book except her husband falls off his chair with a tent in his pants.

Don't letrepparttar 147540 length of a novel faze you. Just throw some people onrepparttar 147541 stage, move them around a bit, and get them into bed. Then, changerepparttar 147542 rules so they have to move around a bit again and get them back into bed. (It doesn't always have to be a bed. Office desks and car seats work too.) Whenrepparttar 147543 book's long enough, stop. Don't worry aboutrepparttar 147544 "climax," because people are climaxing all overrepparttar 147545 place.

Exotic locales. Foreign countries with beaches. Lots of rich people. Remember that you're writing forrepparttar 147546 lowest common denominator, because they spend most ofrepparttar 147547 money that you're trying to reel in. Make it sleazy. No one ever went broke underestimatingrepparttar 147548 public.

How to publish? To do it right, writerepparttar 147549 sales pitch before you writerepparttar 147550 book. Make surerepparttar 147551 book followsrepparttar 147552 pitch andrepparttar 147553 formula. If your cover letter alone has eight typos, no problem. Nobody cares. The publisher will wanna rush this baby to print and get you, or an attractive stand-in, doing as many TV appearances as possible beforerepparttar 147554 book reviewers have time to draw breath. Heck, your target market doesn't read book reviews anyway! Also keep in mind that once that reader buys your book, you've won. They won't get a refund just because you're illiterate. So don't worry about hiring an editor. Hire a publicist!

Think Hollywood. You want your book to become a movie. It doesn't have to be a good movie, because most of them aren't. It just has to sell, baby, sell! Write parts for allrepparttar 147555 hottest stars. True, today's hottest stars will have faded byrepparttar 147556 time they start filming your movie, but no matter. Someone just like them will replace them.

I've been doing it wrong for all these years. I started writing over 20 years ago, andrepparttar 147557 five books I have onrepparttar 147558 shelves are enough to make it a hobby that barely pays for itself. Meanwhile, I work at a job for my money. But if you follow my advice, you won't makerepparttar 147559 same mistakes I have. You'll get rich!
