I’m not sure why
some people are so secretive
about their techniques for success.

If a person REALLY wants to follow
in your footsteps,
your techniques will usually be easy to figure out
once you’ve had a few successes.

However those people are VERY rare.
Even if you wrote a book,
giving people a step by step outline
of how you were successful,
almost no one would follow that outline.
(unless it was damn easy)

Yesterday,
three writers separately asked me
how to increase sales.

I shared with each writer
what my editors shared with me.
The best way to increase sales
in romance
is to write books in a series.

Yep, that was my easy advice.
Set two books in the same town
or
give the hero in the first book a brother
and make the brother the hero of the second book
or
write two vampire books.

All three writers gave me reasons
why they couldn’t write
books in a series.
(none of their reasons
made any damn sense to me)

Of course,
keep top secret projects secret
and don’t blab information
you don’t want utilized.

But don’t be paranoid either.
