If you’re looking to write a kickass book and don’t know what to do, this is for you! Over the last four years I invested tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours to learn how to successfully become a bestselling author.
When I came up with the idea for I AM – Childrens Book for Positive Thinkers, I called many publishers who said that’s not the type of book they publish. Instead of rolling the dance over and over, I just taught myself how to do it.
Four years later, It’s the Worst Book Ever Written: Don’t Waste Your Money Buying This, You’re Not Going to Get a Refund, became a #1 amazon bestseller. From idea to print it only took me 45 minutes. To reach #1 was all about having fun. Seriously though, the books sucks – don’t buy it!
The fact of the matter is, you don’t need to write a kickass book in order to produce kickass results. I’m not striving for the NY Times Bestsellers List, nor am I trying to come up with any revolutionary content. The best book is a book you can use to start, build, or catapult a business.
After publishing many books, I created a very sequential system to do it in the simplest and most effective way. In a business that hasn’t officially launched yet, Authorpreneur Academy, trains businesses how to leverage a book from before writing one word to thriving well beyond the book launch.
Know your personal Why and the books Why. Determine the objectives your publication will achieve for you. Come up with the title and start making the cover.
Go to a local university and use their databases to find credible peer reviewed articles to cite. What I do is get the librarian to do all the work for me. I highly recommend interviewing experts too.
Whether you’re someone who likes doing outlines or not, this is where you write your copy. Make sure you go through and exhaustive amounts of editing; copy, line, and proof.
Don’t think about this at all until your book is 100% complete and live on amazon. Do pre sales and contests while getting reviews. Take screenshots of the bestsellers list anytime you’re on it.
Use your kickass book as the best marketing asset you ever have. Speakers conferences, business organizations, podcasts, morning news shows, journalists, and more all love to feature authors. Use it!
