My last book, Marketing
Outrageously, was a Wall Street Journal best-seller. As you could expect, my agent
and my publisher want me to write another marketing book.
What did I do? I wrote a novel instead. Red
Chaser, a novel about the 1950s, the Cold War and the Brooklyn Dodgers.
My publisher shook his head and said, “Very few writers can cross
over from non-fiction to fiction.”
But, most of my reading over the years have been thrillers. If you spot me in an airport, I won’t
be reading a business book. I’d be reading a thriller. I want to write thrillers.
My publisher shook his
head again and said, “Think business books.”
What made Marketing Outrageously popular, however, were the stories inside the book.
I based those stories on real life business situations. With
Red Chaser, I base the story on real life situations. I did far more research on Red
Chaser than any of my three non-fiction books. But, unlike my business books, there is some (a lot)
stuff that is made up in Red Chaser. That’s what fiction is all about; that’s what
makes it fun.
I’ve published Red Chaser on Amazon Kindle. You can be a judge and jury on whether I should
keep writing fiction. Here's my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can tell me straight out whether you liked Red Chaser or not.
