So this month I launched my eBook, so that I could have one more passive income stream that will keep bringing me profit for the rest of my life, provided I can advertise it to a decent level first. That’s the nature of a passive income- put in a lot of work once, and reap the benefits indefinitely. Well, book sales aren’t exactly booming, but I’ve sold more than zero… so I am happy.

I am also starting another niche blog, this one with more earning potential than Escape Normal, because it covers a topic that is growing in popularity but that there isn’t much information on. There isn’t much on it yet, but as it is about a topic that I’m passionate about, I’ll be putting a ton of work into it over the next few months, and then I’ll be reporting to you my income from that blog as well.

I’m also working on a project with a friend I made in Hawaii- together we are going to publish a deck of tarot cards and a book to go along with them. My friend is doing the writing and I’m taking care of illustrating the 78 cards. It is going to be an awesome final package!

And finally, I am going to be experimenting in selling digital products on Etsy, where I have previously sold hand-dyed feather hair extensions. I like this idea because I can create a digital piece of art once, then sell it as many times as there are people who want to buy it. I’ll let you know how that fares.

And now I am off to Alabama for a few months to play on some flight simulators and moon-walk simulators and other awesome things as a camp counselor (paid. no more volunteering for a while.) and an RA (free food and housing) at Space Camp. What’s that? My life is awesome, you say? YEAH IT IS!

  1. Congrats, It’s nice to see your income report.

  2. Good for you starting additional income streams, this is so important. You get to see what works AND what doesn’t work.

    I think the book will take a while to “take off”, since it doesn’t look like you planned months in advance for a big “product launch” so to speak.

    The fact that you keep moving forward will get you there eventually.

  3. I think you should put the book in the Amazon kindle self publishing program too, since it’s free and doesn’t cost you anything.

    Yeah, I know they take 30% if you elect to make 70% or some countries you will only get paid 35% but if you make 10-20 sales there, it’s sales you WOULDN’T have made.

    Just don’t send your traffic to amazon kindle if you don’t want to. They have the marketplace.

    I listed a few romance novels under another pen name and haven’t really advertised and they have sold the books for me consistently. (If only I was a better romance novel writer,…arghhh)
