It took me 7 years to finish my first book. Seven. Years. Here’s the worst thing about it: it bombed! (And it was picked up by a publisher!) I spent SO much time on it. Every 3 chapters I went over the entire manuscript to make sure everything lined up. After I finished, I went over the book again until I was tired of looking at it. I did everything “they” tell you to do.
Guess what? That book STILL bombed! The reviews were horrible. One person even emailed me to “nicely” tell me everything that was wrong with it. I was so discouraged I took the book down. I seriously thought about giving up—that maybe I didn’t have a skill for this after all. But I had a passion to write, so I kept going—with low confidence, I might add.
I was determined to make my next book better. I read more books than I could count on the subject. I researched, even watched movies to dissect what made them so interesting. There was so much information; it was overwhelming. Everyone tells you to write a book, but no one really tells you HOW.
After gathering all my information, I created a guide for myself with the things I noticed that attracted readers and fans and used it to draft my next book. I self-published this time, made another announcement with my heart pounding in my throat. If I failed this time, I would probably be done for good.
To my surprise, the reviewers LOVED the book. In the 3 months it took to finish, I’d created a page-turner that my readers read in one sitting! Some even burned their dinners they were so enthralled with my writing. Do you know how great that felt? (I sent the lady an Amazon gift card since I’d burned her dinner.)
I learned something with that publication: creating a page-turner is what readers cared about. Everything within the book had to enthrall them, and it was not as easy as it sounded. With my guide, I had became very good at hooking the reader in and keeping them. The sales, fan mail, and reviews piled in. My book was being recommended to others. I made $500 that year. The best year of my writing career (at that point).
But I had a thought: what about others who are in my same situation? Who have hopes and dreams but no REAL guidance? Who are listening to people give them false data about how to REALLY find success as an author? Imagine writing your book KNOWING it will be a page-turner? Imagine knowing that your readers (the majority of them) will LOVE it and even message you with their compliments.
