Let’s face it, we’ve all had the fantasy. It’s different for everyone. Me? I don’t picture Ed McMahan (is he even still alive?) showing up at my front door with a big check from Publishers Clearing House. That’s kind of flashy and public and, frankly, not my style.
My get-rich fantasy is more like the one in Office Space (minus, you know, the embezzlement and whatnot). I picture simply checking my bank account, only to find a huge number where there’s usually a pretty darn small one. *dreamy sigh* Yeah, that’s how I’d like it to go down!
What about you guys? You know you’ve had the dream, too! We’re curious: if someone threw a big pile of money at you, how would it change your writing career? Tell us:
- If you had unlimited funds, would you still take the self-publishing route? Or would you spend your time going after a traditional publishing deal?
- If you did choose to self-publish, would you choose to DIY the various components (editing, design, marketing, etc) or hire it all out? In which area would you invest the most your money?
- How would it change your writing schedule? What about your writing space?
- Would it alter your sales goals? What about the type/genre of books you write?
We can’t wait to hear your responses! To join the discussion, please leave a comment below addressing any (or all) of the above questions. Also, mention the discussion to your indie author friends — we’d love to hear from everyone!
