Write to Market: Deliver a Book that Sells

Write to Market: Deliver a Book that Sells - Chris  Fox This book changed my entire philosophy on writing. Build it and they will come just doesn't make sense. I love blending genres, but before I can build a cool career of genre-bending books, first I need to gain a fanbase and prove I can deliver what readers want to read. Unfortunately, when I read this book, I'd already finished writing Book 1 of an epic fantasy series. So now I'm trying to retrofit what I learned from Write to Market to this Book 1, even though it's an oversaturated market. At the very least, I've decided adding aliens into my epic fantasy isn't a good idea if I want to gain fans while I'm still a newbie author. But you can bet I'll be applying the knowledge I gained from this book on my NEXT series.
