This content comes from a talk I did for a local chapter of the Romance Writers of America and is all about niching down to be profitable. My show notes will be sparse, because I’ve got a lovely podcast episode and slides that you can use to follow along!
When you are able to niche down with your writing, you will be able to increase your productivity and your profits.
- Your productivity will increase because niching down gives you a clear framework of reader and genre expectations.
- Your profits will increase because you are satisfying the reader expectations. When you satisfy those expectations, readers trust you and they come back for more books. It builds superfans!
So…how do you niche down? Listen to this episode and scroll through the slideshow to see how I niched down to go from making $30 in January 2018 to making $8.5k in January 2019. That’s one year and a crazy increase in profits. I can’t even math that high!

***In the slideshow and podcast, I used the reporting for income that happened before Amazon announced the pageread payout for the month of January. Because the payout went down, so did my income. Still impressive! But if you’re wondering why it was $9k in the slides and audio, that’s why!
While some might think that niching down or writing to market stifles creativity, for me, it’s increased it. I love the challenge of finding my way and writing my voice within genre constraints and reader expectations.
Have you tried niching down?
