Winter is one of my favorite times of year because it is ski season. Out of curiosity, I recently searched the book section of Amazon for the word “skiing” and I found 5,276 results. Yes, there are over 5,000 books on skiing listed on Amazon. This got me thinking… There is a huge market for authors who love skiing as much as I do. You could write an informational book for novice skiers, or you could share stories about your own skiing adventures. You could even write a humor book about skiing. The possibilities are endless.
Even if you don’t enjoy skiing, there is still a vast amount of potential for you to write a book and earn money. Whatever your passion is, there are other people who share your interests and would love to read your book. Whether it is skiing, fashion, children, painting, or any other interest, if you can find a unique way to share your thoughts and stories, you can make money by self publishing a book on the topic. For inspiration, type a keyword into Amazon and see what pops up. You may be inspired by all the amazing work that already exists on the topic or you may discover that there isn’t a lot of information out there and the industry could really use a book like yours.
If you have the idea but lack the skills or time to write a quality book, consider hiring a ghostwriter who can help turn your thoughts into a great manuscript. You should also consider other professionals to help you create the best book possible. Some wonderful options include copyediting and marketing services. When choosing a self publishing company, be sure to look for companies that offer these additional services.
I’d love to know, what is your passion?
