For The Musicians Out There

 I've just got back to blogging, so this is a post I put on another blog, and it's suitable for here, so enjoy it and feel free to spread the word. These are great websites.

It took me awhile to learn, that if you want to earn an income online go to Internet marketers. If you want to learn how to make more CD sales on the Internet, go to a Music Marketer. Here is a great book if you are an indie musician and want to make more money online.

Forget the pie in the sky rock and roll dreams. If you want to be a star in your own area, read that book : "Six Figure Musician: How to Make $100,000 (or More) With Your Music" Courtesy of David Hooper.

Here's another good Music Marketer, too.

Still Chasing Riley 2016

Alot has happened. I was sick last year for more than six months. This year, about three weeks. It has been hard trying to work when you don't feel well. Then, not being able to.  Now that I am just about feeling great, for once,  I can get back to it.

Seriously, the whole point of this blog is to earn an income that will not only make me financially independent, but will have me working at home. I am still trying to get my e books to sell. It's frustrating seeing people who are selling hundreds and thousands of books a day, and I'm not even making bus fare with my books.

What has changed? If you also want to become a writer, please take this very important advice. FICTION sells on Amazon. If anyone tries to tell you non-fiction is the best thing to sell to pay the bills,  they are misleading you. I've done a cookbook, children's books, and it is not the same as FICTION.

SO, having said that. I am actively writing again. I got an editor working on one book, and I will keep writing and publishing, hoping that in a few months(according to one course that I took) that I should make enough sales. If I make enough sales and become financially free, that means I would have caught Riley, at last. I will keep you posted on my progress and success. Once I have caught Riley, I would be more than happy to share what worked in free case studies.

I have not forgotten my first love, music. I just have to get past the first step.

Until next month......

Chasing Riley 2015

Sorry I have not been blogging as I should have. I am juggling more projects and my blogs are left behind. I am making progress, although in micro steps. I am going to stick with what I said, years ago. I am going to become financially free with publishing first, then I will go back to doing music which my sister and I are anxious to do. I have found a way to write faster and hopefully this time my books will be something lots of people want to buy. I have 13 books published now, that do not sell every day. The Amazon rankings are 100K and above.

I had more, but had to let them go, because they weren't selling. So now I am focusing on something new to publish, and by July I'm hoping things will be looking a whole lot better and I will almost grab hold of Riley and stop chasing it. One thing I've learned is that you have to sell what people want. So that's just what I will do. Okay, back to work! I cannot promise, but I will try to do one post a month. So look for one in June on how well I am progressing.
