The Lure of Easy Money in Publishing By: L. Avery Brown

Important Post

Hello, Serious Writers.

I know I've not been around a lot but I do pop in from time to time to see what's going on. Also, I like to clean up the main thread line where people post promotions and advertisements. Typically, I do this by informing the person who issued the post <why> the post has been deleted while letting them know that they are more than welcomed to repost in the proper thread.

And that, as they say, is that.... Show more


I read it. It looks very futural. And yet...who knows. It might be the future. Or simply a way to post and get hacked. As you said...need to wait to see where this leads to.
Personally. ..I feel that it's another way to be controlled by 'Big Brother'. First of all, using bitcoin... Show more


The future is wonderful...and scary.

L. Avery Brown

No, you are correct in both assumptions. But not the paranoid part.

First, Bitcoin IS a way to get around not only the US government's way to collect taxes but also a way to get around the taxes imposed on digital purchases within certain US states and municipalities. As well as... Show more


To me easy money in publishing doesnt exist. Ive been writing for years, got an agent, and im still struggling to get published.

Genghis Kahn’s Lover

I’ve been loved by Genghis Kahn, been loved by King Henry
I’m every woman ever known, a sacred witchery

Possessing me the driving force, man wants what he can’t have
Rejection rots beneath his skin, and anger is the salve

Desire shifts, becomes a need, he’s desperate for relief
He rapes the world, takes everything, an artist and a thief

I’ve been loved by every man, I’m every woman known
Been bound and gagged, my... Show more

A request to all writers. By: Ryan

I am asking all writers out there to respond to this message with their favorite writers on Bookrix. Full disclosure, I will be attempting to contact these writers to see if I can persuade them to submit a short story to my website. Yes, it is true, I am not above begging. If you feel that you are the best writer and don't mind me annoying the hell out of you, feel free to post your name. Thanks much my friends!

Btw, Danny and Jeff. I like Judy very much too ;-)


I don't write short stories. I had to in college, and never felt comfortable. I don't think in short stories. Maybe I'm weird, but count me as at least one. ;)


Haha, fair enough Jeff.

Hi All!
I just put out a novelette, free to read for anyone interested, called "THE RANCH."
It's an excerpt from a shelved novel series, but I always thought it worked well on its own. You can find it from my profile page. Enjoy if you like.

When choosing a job, the salary is the most important consideration.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Nowadays, job seekers consider about dream income as a top-priority when chasing a career. While I accept that salary is an essential factor for life, I believe that there are much more aspects affecting humans equally at work.
On the one hand, I suppose that salary help person to have a good standard of living and... Show more


Interesting points. Just a few suggestions:

Since you leave the door open for enjoyment and personal advancement as being main considerations, your first sentence might read better if you say, "the salary is one of the most important considerations" instead of "the most... Show more

Do you write a sequel or a totally different story? Do you write multiple at the same time?

@k.p., THAT'S why we have other ideas to allure us, so we aren't as bummed about our stories being over.
Personally, I do so much editing, I get sick of my book still hanging around, like a lazy adult child, and am happy to say, "Get out there and find a job!" to it. ;)
A new story is healthy.


Haha ur right!

The first toke me six month writing and four years of editing. Well because mine are mostly dealing with my family (better and more authentic protas I couldn’t imagine nor fantasize), I think it’s only fair to respect/consider their input and/or concerns. Lol you... Show more


Gotta cut the cord at some point.
It can be hard to call something done, but you gotta. It will never ever be perfect, and its hard knowing you could alter things possibly as an improvement, and not do it. Do the best you can for a reasonable amount of time then move on.

How many here use an outline before writing


I give myself a general structure that's not much more than a beginning, muddled amount of middle, and ending idea. In many cases I have the beginning and ending very solidly thought out in my head.
Once I get into writing, I start slowly narrowing where I'm going. There are... Show more

I'm with you. I have a thin outline and have had to backup and change a few things when taking a different turn in the story.
