Shanghai wealth management firm comes crashing to earth as executives arrested

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Zhongjin Capital Management made a splash in the past couple of years in Shanghai. The wealth management firm’s imposing branch office on Shanghai’s historic Bund pulled in many eager investors seeking the double-digit returns it promised on short-term financing products. It had a big profile, sponsoring popular Shanghai TV dating program "Saturday Date" and signed up domestic billiards star Pan Xiaoting as a spokesperson.

  • Lawyer Mark Dawson sick of the City self-publishes thrillers and sells 1m copies

    • Mark Dawson used his 90-minute commute to write his thrillers
    • He took to Kindle Direct Publishing to share them with readers for free
    • Two years later he's earning a six-figure salary and cleared his mortgage 

    ByEleanor Lawrie For Thisismoney.co.uk

    Published: 09:28 GMT, 30 April 2016 | Updated: 23:46 GMT, 30 April 2016

    Mark Dawson's life story should provide hope to the thousands of undiscovered authors around the world with half finished manuscripts under their beds.

    The ex-lawyer and author of more than 20 thrillers has seen a million copies of his books downloaded in the space of a few years, and is now negotiating a film deal.

    But this wasn't the result of a hard-nosed marketing campaign. Mark has found success without any help from a traditional publishing house.

    Mark Dawson: 'I spent three hours a day on the train and that was the perfect environment to be creative'

    Mark Dawson: 'I spent three hours a day on the train and that was the perfect environment to be creative'

    Just two years on from uploading a manuscript onto Kindle Direct Publishing, the author is on course to earn a 'high six-figure' salary this year, more than he ever did as a lawyer - and has paid off his mortgage.

    Mark, 42, was a lawyer specialising in cross border fraud when he had his first brush with literary success in 2000. His novel The Art of Falling Apart was published by Pan Books but failed to sell, which he says was a difficult experience.

    'It was really fun until the book hit the shelves and a combination of it not being very good and the publisher not really promoting it meant it did not really do well or make back my advance.

    'I knew it would make it hard once I had a few strikes against me to get published again, and the fun had gone out of it so I stopped writing for six or seven years.'

    Mark picked himself up and went to work for the film classification board, but in 2014 became inspired by a friend who had used Kindle Direct Publishing. 

    The software program, offered on Amazon's e-reader Kindle, allows budding writers to upload their work to the online store within minutes - to be shared with a potential audience of more than 10 million readers around the world.

    Depending on how much they decide to charge for their work, authors will get paid royalties of either 35 or 70 per cent. 

    Although the price of ebooks is usually lower than print books, it means authors who enjoy even a moderate level of success could make more money than the 12.5 per cent royalties typically earned through traditional publishing - they get the money quicker too.

    Mark says: 'My friend was having great contact with readers, he was getting paid quite quickly in contrast to traditional publishing, which pays out quarterly or yearly. It was the impetus I needed to get going again.'

    Over the course of that year, Mark self-published six books, which he wrote on his daily commute from his home in Salisbury to London.

    He says: 'I had three hours a day on the train and that was the perfect environment to be creative. Further impetus was provided by the fact that I was selling books. 

    'Amazon was paying me more. I was getting good reviews. I had amazing responses from people who said they had returned to reading because of my books.'

    Aside from being financially lucrative, Mark says becoming a stay-at-home novelist has worked wonders for his work-life balance.

    He says: 'I'll write in a coffee shop for a few hours then go for a run and pick up my kids. When I was a lawyer I would get in when my kids had already gone to sleep, but now I can play a part in their lives.

    'I started with a character and once I had him it became easy to to put him in different situations.'

    That character was John Milton, an assassin with a troubled past who is hired by the government to do its dirty work. Mark has followed up this set of 11 books with the Beatrix Rose series, another assassin.

    Mark Dawson: 'I would massively recommend self-publishing - it is not just a vanity press'

    Today, Mark estimates his novels have been downloaded more than a million times - although around half of those were given away for free. But the author insists he doesn't feel taken advantage of. 

    'I would massively recommend self-publishing. Some people stigmatise it as vanity press but it's not like that.

    'This is my choice - I have sold enough and there is enough interest for me to probably quite easily approach a publisher and get a deal. 

    'But when you actually get into the royalties, I would get 12.5 per cent of the cover price, working out at about 40p per cover. 

    'Amazon, Apple and the other platforms will give me 70 per cent, so in financial terms it's hard to see how I could earn more.' 

    While Mark has had a good experience, clearly not all self-published authors have done so well.

    While there's no magic formula, the author thinks he has a pretty good idea of how to maximise readership. 

    'To be successful you need a combination of a few things' Mark says. 'You have to be a pretty good writer, not a literary genius but you need to be able to write captivating fiction that readers like. Writing a series is good because you can hook people in. 

    'But equally important is that you need to know when to stop being creative and when to start focusing on business. In the mornings I write but in the evenings I work on business.'

    This business focus currently involves spending a quarter of a million dollars on Facebook advertising this year alone in expectation of a 25- to 50 per cent return on investment. He's also negotiating a film deal for one of his books with a 'high-profile' US producer and a director.

    With writing and promoting taken care of, there's one other aspect Mark credits for his good fortune.

    'One of the main reasons I've been successful is I'm very focused on developing my relationship with readers. 

    'I reply to everybody, I don't pay someone to do it for me. Then the adverts I run attract comments and I try to at least acknowledge them. I try to turn readers into fans, into friends.'

    He also credits free online distribution with 'removing the gate-keepers' to publishing and bringing greater breadth to the fiction on offer.

    'Some book publishers won't take risks on something that has such a small audience but with self-publishing you don't need a lot of readers to make money because of the higher royalties.'

    Popular genres that have sprung up in the self-publishing world include 'shifter romances', in the vein of vampire/werewolf drama Twilight, and 'billionaire erotica' inspired by the success of 50 Shades of Grey, which was initially self-published as an ebook.  

    Of course, there is a good reason why some would-be novelists get rejected by traditional publishers, and Mark admits the ease of Kindle Direct Publishing 'is both a blessing and a curse'.

    'Some of the stuff out there is pretty amateurish but there is a lot of information for readers to make a decision about what to read. For me, it's a golden age to be both a writer and a reader.'

    As time goes on, he expects the medium to gather more credibility and blur the line with traditional publishing. 

    'My dream is to have a Mark Dawson book on one side of the Amazon page and Lee Child on the other and not be able to tell which one is self-published.

    'The question is, can you provide the reader with an exciting experience that they enjoy? The delivery mechanism is almost irrelevant.'
