How to Make $1 Million - Books

Here's hopefully the first in a long series where I give you fantastic ideas that make you money, and then you give me some of that money because I came up with it and am just too lazy to follow through on any of them.


It occurred to me today that you can write a profitable genre-mystery by appending the word "Murder" to any pre-existing book title. No? Anything. Either it's descriptive of the event or just sounds awesome on its face:
  • "The Iliad Murder"
  • "The Jewish Mother Cookbook Murder"
  • What to Expect When You're Expecting … Murder"
Write a long, winding tale of tragedy and political assassination; a funny yet self-effacing death at a high-society kitchen; a story of a pregnant mother/former double agent trying to uncover the whereabouts of her captured baby-daddy/ex-partner/traitorous enemy.

Then make the royalty checks payable to Dave.
