It may not be time for your book (s) to shine.

Depending upon the topic of your book may determine when it’s a hot commodity in the search engines.

The Novel: UnHoly Pursuit: Devil on my Trail

We all have picked up and read books that became popular when the subject matter they were written about becomes a household word. Some time we look at the publication date and see it’s much earlier than when everyone decided this is the ‘new’ popular subject to discuss.

The subject isn’t new. It’s just that everyone suddenly decided to talk about it.

The same may be the case for your own book(s). It may not be time for your book to shine. It doesn’t mean it’s a bad book or none of the things  people may tell you as to why it isn’t selling or making the Amazon top 100 or is listed in the New York Times. With enough money thrown behind it a crappy book can become a best seller. I know for I have read plenty of them.

I don’t mean after death kinda of celebrity status…

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Suppose you write for a living and do not have the means nor the money to wait around until the subject matter of your book become popular? How do you make a living?

    • Terri, first of all writing for a living shouldn’t be a full time occupation unless you have a big fan base buying your work or have a contract with one of the big publishing houses. Most authors have other sources of income. If they make it big time, then that’s great but the amount of time and dedication required for your writings to become a hit is very time consuming.

      I suggest write as much as possible. Publish as much as possible. The greater your chances of exposure. Most famous authors have many books and have written many before striking gold with the one that put them on the map.

      Most people whose first piece of work put them on the literary map had inside help in getting there from the publishing industry. Most writers have a tough way to go before they hit it big. There aren’t many with the connections of J. K. Rowling.

      Below is a list of authors who self-published their work which became famous.
