Could YOU write commercial (genre) fiction?
Commercial fiction now makes money. You can write under a number of pen names – this is advisable if you’re writing erotica for example – and your ebooks will go on selling for years. As you build your publishing catalog, and gain readers, you will sell more ebooks with every new story you write.
There’s always the chance that you will hit it big, of course, if you hit a chord with readers. Authors who hit it big can sell thousand of ebooks a day.
But even if you never write a bestseller, the writing you do in your spare time can add to your income, because commercial fiction – by “commercial” we mean fiction which is written specifically to sell – will go on selling for years.
