Winner - Writers Digest Best Writer's
"Heal Yourself AND
Create a New
Dear Fellow Writer,
The next time you're in town, take a close look at your local book store. Picture yourself studying those long lines of shelves (looking for your own name perhaps!)
You'll notice that, when it comes to new books, self help is one of the major growth industries in publishing - and has been for well over two decades now. There seems to be a never ending demand for books that cater to our physical, mental and emotional growth.
It's a product of our age: a time when our new found wealth, materialism and 'Because I'm Worth It' mentality has left us feeling empty, yearning for something more meaningful, perhaps even spiritual.
Whilst you're still in that bookstore, take a look at some of those writer's markets books - and buy one if you haven't already! It will be one of the best investments in your writing career you will ever make.
Examine Submission Guidelines
Now, look up the guidelines for submitting manuscripts and book ideas to mainstream and independent publishers.
Fiction guidelines are often cursory and dismissive, listing precise conditions that imply you should think twice about submitting anything!
Now take a look at the guidelines for submitting books on 'self help', 'how to' and books about personal growth and change.
A completely different story.
The guidelines for submitting self help manuscripts, even just ideas for self help books is far more encouraging, even enthusiastic and helpful.
Why is this, do you think?
Okay, listen and listen good: The publishing industry is a business. It is commercially driven. The industry, from the bottom to the top, want to stock shops with books that actually sell!
Finding a Niche
Now, assume that writing a self help book is a lot quicker than writing a novel - and I mean a lot, say a tenth of the time you'd take on a fictional work. Assume that you could probably research, plan and write a good self help book, realistically, in about two months - from the germ of an idea to final draft. It's by no means an unreasonable assumption.
What would you write about that hasn't been covered a million times already? (Not that this seems to stop a good writer!)
Is there a niche that is not particularly well catered for?
Well actually, YES - it's a genre all its own. And it's often referred to, by those in the know, as Mind Body and Spirit, sometimes also called New Age.
But, I hear you ask, how would I start writing for this comparatively virgin market? How would I know what to say? And how to say it?
Clearly, by getting the best advice from someone who's been there and done that with great success.
