Your Best Bet

PODy Mouth has a great blog that I encourage everyone in the POD game to read because it's filled with interesting info on the industry. Her latest post Top 10 POD Books Right Now is absolutely essential reading for all POD writers, or those who want to go the POD route. So what's your best bet in POD? Non-fiction. When you look at the list, you will find that most of the bestselling POD books are non-fiction. What are the hottest topics?
  • Relationships/Sex
  • Money management
  • Self-improvement
  • Motivational/Management
In other words, stuff that people want to learn more about. I would also add health/coping with illness, identity theft, and age related issues--there are millions of Baby Boomers out there and they need to know about how to live after 65: they want to know how to spend money, protect their identity, deal with Medicare, manage their money, and other issues that come into play after retirement.
