I stumbled upon BHW while trying to find ways to drive traffic to a website for my business. This place is awesome. If you ever feel like you've hit a lazy streak, just hop on here. Every one is so motivated, and the ambition is infectious. I thought I was motivated, but you guys have me beat by far: which makes me want to work harder. There are so many resources on this website, it's ridiculous. I've decided that the Kindle e-books will be my first major project in IM. My long-term goal: 50 books uploaded on Amazon by the end of August. I know it's a lot, but you have to set the bar high. My goal for the month: 5 books uploaded on Amazon. Honestly, as long as the writers can churn them out, I'm pretty sure I can do more than 5. We will see though. What I've done today: Well, I started this journal haha. I literally just started this earlier today. I have hired 5 writers from odesk, and I'm waiting on one to get back with me. 1-Mystery writer: this guy actually sent me the idea for his book in his application, and it sounded like something I'd like to read. So, I hired him haha. Good sell on his part. 2-Romance: I think these will do well. I know a TON of women with Kindles. 1-Scifi guy: I'm contracting him to do a 4-5 book series. I like the series idea, because I think it will increase customer retention. Scifi guys love series. 1-Erotica: Housewives love these books, especially with 50 Shades of Grey being so hot right now. What I'm doing tomorrow: Tomorrow I will create Facebook pages for the authors, maybe buy some friends for them. Also, I am going to get the story synopsis from each writer, and start working on the covers. I would like to have the covers done before the books. This will keep me from becoming idle while waiting on the books to come in. It's amazing what you can get people to do on odesk. That place is a gold mine for every thing. The only thing you really need to watch out for is hiring someone from India, as their English is sort of broken. I think for now I will shy away from hiring them unless their messages are perfect. I'd hate to edit a book in broken English. I like to read, so I don't think this project will be that bad. I'm more worried about making the covers, though. Does anyone have ideas on a tool to make the cover easier?
