How to launch a Writing Career: Jessica’s story

Today every Writer has a chance to be heard and become famous. But lots of possibilities and choices make it harder for the author to find the way. How to launch your own Writing Career with AlphaNovel?

Well, an example would be helpful. So let’s make up a virtual avatar of Jessica – a passionate Writer with a desire to develop a successful career in the genre of Romance. She wants to get a bigger audience and earn from what she loves – Writing.

Here is a career scenario for you from our Virtual Writer Jessica. It could be a guide for your own career plan.

Jessica’s Story

Jessica works as an accountant and loves Romance novels – she’s a huge fan and a devoted reader. She downloads AlphaNovel Reading App and reads all the books in this genre. One day Jessica decides to write her own romance novel. After reading AlphaNovel Guides and Articles for writers, she makes up her mind: time to become an author.

Jessica creates the plot of her first book – “Total Eclipse of Forbidden Desire,” writes the first 30,000 words, registers on Writers Platform, and publishes her first chapters on AlphaNovel as a draft. Hence, it becomes available for the AlphaNovel Team but is still closed for the readers. That is a smart move – Jessica wants to settle all the legal and financial matters before going to the public.

Then, she applies for an Exclusive contract just by pressing a button on her AlphaNovel personal account. It is an excellent choice since an Exclusive contract provides her with the highest bonuses and royalties on the market.

AlphaNovel Writers’ Support Team proofreads Jessica’s novel, running exclusivity, plagiarism, and quality check. In 3 working days maximum, Jessica gets approval for her “Total Eclipse of Forbidden Desire” and receives a message in her personal account with a signed Exclusive contract.

After signing the contract from her side, Jessica automatically receives a $150 Signing Bonus for her 30,000 words and the opportunity to receive a royalty from her book readings. She can now track all her income & payment statistics in her personal account on AlphaNovel.

Now it is time for Jessica to open her novel to the world. Being a smart and ambitious writer, Jessica puts a paywall on the 3rd chapter of her “Total Eclipse of Forbidden Desire” – just where the first dramatic plot twist is placed.

Readers worldwide start to pay to read her novel, and when her royalties top $75 (that is 50% of her Signing bonus), Jessica can transfer her earnings via PayPal – she gets her first $225 with AlphaNovel!

It is time to celebrate, but we remember that Jessica is both passionate & smart. So she works hard to finish her novel, using feedback from her readers – she posted the first two free chapters of her book on the AlphaNovel subreddit and got plenty of helpful comments & pieces of advice on how to improve her novel.

Jessica publishes new chapters of her book weekly, promoting her book on social media. Soon her audience on the AlphaNovel reading app reaches thousands of readers worldwide, so AlphaNovel promotes her book inside the Reading App and through digital channels on a special promo budget of $500. The number of Jessica’s readers skyrocketed.

Jessica completes her book in a few weeks, which now is more than 250,000 words, and applies for the Completion Bonus. After a short review, AlphaNovel Writers Support Team grants her a $400 Completion Bonus. Together with a $750 royalty earnings, Jessica’s total income from “Total Eclipse of Forbidden Desire,” exclusively published on AlphaNovel, has already reached $1375! Way to go, Jessica!

After a few months, Jessica has already gained wide popularity through the AlphaNovel Reading App. Every week she checks out her income status in her personal account on the Writers Platform and regularly transfers royalties to her card via PayPal.

Now she has loyal readers in Britain, the United States, Germany, and France. They are expecting new books from her, and Jessica is already writing two new novels exclusively for AlphaNovel: “Total Rise of Forbidden Desire” & “Total Joy of Forbidden Desire.”

Having a great success story with her first exclusive book, AlphaNovel proposes to Jessica a special contract with higher bonuses and royalties as well as an exclusive $10,000 promo budget. Now Jessica gets close to her dream – becoming a Global Writing Star!
