Join award winning author David Farland as he looks at choosing what to write, deciding where to sell it, and weighing your likelihood of success before investing thousands of hours.
Most writers have a dozen that they want to write, but which book will make you the most money? In Hollywood, before a movie is filmed, studios will look at the film’s basic concepts, do a global market analysis, and consider the costs involved in making the film before they decide whether to pull the trigger. In other words, before the film is made, they determine whether it is worth investing time and money in it. Considering the fact that it can take hundreds or thousands of precious hours to write a novel—hours that you may have to salvage between family obligations, work, education, and other pursuits—you need to learn how to greenlight your novels, too.
