In ten years when I’m eighty-six, I suspect I will still be writing. My career may take a turn for the better because of my advanced age.
In five years I plan to reach a modest goal of a steady writing income of from $5,000 to $7,000 from books sold on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and local bookstores.
In three years I hope to be recognized as a local author in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Greater Detroit. Speaking engagements may be a part of that future income along with book sales up to $3,000. I suspect $1,000 marketing investment per year will be required.
I’m considering asking for quotes for my website upgrade: www.rohnfederbush.com
I want all my books shown as side bars on the left and right of a central-main column.
All of my Romantic Suspense Books I want on the left:
- In Lincoln’s Shadow
- Separation Anxiety
- Bonds of Affection
- Hastings Dead
- Sally Bianco’s Mystery Series (3 books: The Legitimate Way, The Appropriate Way, and the Recorder’s Way)
On the right I want:
- Fantasy: St. Joan’s Architect
- Michigan Historical Romance:
- 1812 North Parish
- 1841 Floating Home
- 1879 Love’s Triumph
- Biblical Fiction: Salome’s Conversion
In the center column I want to give away Separation Anxiety which truncates into In Lincoln’s Shadow cover.
Later I want to give away Hastings Dead truncating into Sally Bianco’s Mystery Series
A better idea might be to start linking a monthly e-newsletter in the column with a Mail Chimp address keeper for those who want to keep receiving my information. I would like to be taught to add this newsletter by myself, too.
