Are You Ready For The Publishing Revolution?

Writing has traditionally been considered a solitary craft.You wrote you article or book in seclusion. You submittedit to an editor or publisher and prayed it would bepublished.

Along comes the Internet and the monsters out of the cage.You now have the ability to self publish your work. You canthrow up a Blog, hook up to an RSS feed and syndicate yourwriting.

You can form online communities with other writers. Readerscan give immediate feedback on your work. You can promoteyour work in the virtual book stores such as Amazon.

The Internet has become a writer's paradise.

With the advent of the Internet, you no longer are limitedas a writer,. With a little research you can become awriter/publisher. Think of the possibilities.

Every word you write can travel the globe in the blink ofan eye.

Why would you want to be a publisher?

* You can make money before your book is even written.

Before the Internet, writers had to find ways to supportthemselves while working on their novels or stories. Now ifyou've got a book that will take any length of time tocomplete, you can still make money by joining affiliateprograms for books by other authors.

* You can start an online newsletter.

What an advantage you have over writers of the past. Withyour newsletter, your readers get to know you and yourwork. You have a waiting audience for the day your book isreleased.

* You can start your own Blog.

You can plug your Blog into an RSS feed and your work canbe accessed on the entire network.

* You can start your own affiliate program.

Sites such as Clickbank take the hassle out of having anaffiliate program. They process the orders and paycommissions to your affiliates. It's a turnkey system forunder $50. Your affiliates are an army of salesmen ready topromote your work around the globe. They can reach moremarkets than you could on your own. It's leverage inaction.

* You can build a theme oriented site drawing readers andwriters from around the world. It's like having your ownDisneyland for writers.

* You can set up your own autoresponder course geared toyour market. Educating and selling on autopilot.

* You can create free ebooks. Take a few of your chaptersand create the book as a preview. You're giving readersenough information to decide whether they want to buy yourbook.

You can also add links to your website, Blog and otherbooks in the free book. .

* You can write for the online newsletters in your targetmarket.

As an ezine writer there are times I've had an articlecirculated to millions of readers in a single week.

* You can allow webmasters to host your articles on theirsite.

Imagine thousands of websites promoting your work.

Think it can't happen. Think again.

Without even realizing it was happening, my articles arepublished on 4000 websites at any given time. Most of thosearticles are there for the duration.

Imagine what you could accomplish if you put some effortinto self promotion.

I've just scratched the surface of the possibilities.

The difference between being a writer or a writer/publisheris just a shift in mindset. If you're willing to get out ofyour comfort zone, the skies the limit.

There's a cartoon that illustrates the mindset of a winner.

There's a little boy throwing the football with his father.His father looks at him and says, "Son, with a littlepractice, you can be making the big money they're payingprofessional football players."

The little boy smiles and looks at his father and says,"Dad, I don't want to be a football player. I want to bethe man who can afford to pay all those salaries."

From the mouth of babes.

It's in your hands. Do you want to stay in your comfortzone and limit your possibilities, or do you want to expandyour thinking and build a publishing empire?

In the immortal words of Shakespeare,

"Why, then the world's mine oyster, Which I with sword willopen."

Is the world your oyster? If not maybe it's time youexpanded your thinking.

Wishing You Success,
