How To Make Money Writing – Interview Series

Justin please can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself.

My name is Justin Lambe from Fancy Gap, Virginia.

I write mystery books, with four published and one coming out on Sept. 5th, 2017. I enjoy writing stories, reading a lot of books, literally.

I enjoy taking walks, spending time with my family, and gathering ideas for my next novel along the way!

When did you first start writing?

I've always written off and on when I was young, but mostly small short stories for school, fun, etc.

In late summer of 2015, I set forward a challenge for myself to see if I could write a story different from what I had in the past.

When I started that story the thought of publishing never crossed my mind.

Four or five books later, I'm glad I challenged myself and gave it a try.

I don't know why I didn't start sooner.

How do you come up with the ideas for your books?

I've got a huge imagination, so mainly my ideas come from that.

Some have come from places I've visited, maybe a television show might spark an idea too.

Once I've got my idea, my imagination kicks in and let the story begin.

What were your initial goals with your books? Have these changed over time?

My initial goal for my books has been to tell a good clean story that all ages can read, from kids to adults.

So far I've been successful in exceeding that goal.

How to make money writing – Where do you sell your books and what’s the best seller ie Paperback or Kindle-style?

I sell my books online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and other sites to name a few.

I'd say my best sellers would be both paperback and eBook.

Do you use social media to promote your books? If yes, which platform(s)? Has it had an impact?

Yes, I use social media for promoting. Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and Goodreads are the platforms I mainly use.

What has been your biggest challenge in creating and advertising your books?

Dedication. I'd say that's my biggest challenge.

I'd say that's my biggest challenge.

I have to set aside some time at least once or twice a week to put my name out there for readers to see.

Can you give any tips to people looking to start writing their own books?

My tip for someone wanting to start writing: Don't be afraid to take chances.

If you've got an idea, go for it.

Don't let anyone say you can't do it. You can do anything you set your mind to.

You can do anything you set your mind to.

This world needs another good story and it's your job to deliver. Don't feel you've got to publish right away.

Write your story and focus on that later. Put pen to paper or hands to the keyboard and write!

Put pen to paper or hands to the keyboard and write!

Last Question – What do you enjoy the most about being a writer?

What I enjoy the most is creating these stories and getting to know my characters.

I feel I'm part of their family.

When I finish a book, it makes me sad because I have to let them go out into the world for my readers to get to know them too.

I like seeing and meeting people and hearing how they've enjoyed my stories.

The life of a writer is wonderful. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Thank you, Justin, and finally, how can readers get in touch with you?
