On a beautiful late spring afternoon, five years ago, two young aspiring women graduated from the same college. They were very much alike. Both had been better than average students, both were personable and both - as young college graduates are—filled with ambitious dreams of becoming published authors.
Recently, these same two women returned to their college for their 10th anniversary.
They were still very much alike. Both had careers in business. Both had started a family. And both, it turned out, had gone to work for the same Midwestern insurance company after graduation, and were still there.
But there is a difference. In the area of becoming a published author, only one had succeeded. While one was a manager of the small claims department of that insurance company, the other was not only a rising star in the sales department, but her most recently self-published romance novel is steadily rising on Amazon’s Best Seller’s list.
Have you ever wondered, as I have, what makes this kind of difference in people's lives? It isn't always native intelligence or talent or dedication. It isn't that one person wants success more than the other. I believe the difference lies in what each person does or doesn’t do NOW to achieve their goals. In other words, who takes the bull by the horns and doesn’t let go. And that’s what I want to warn you about; not taking action. Because that’s the whole purpose behind why we created this eCourse on getting your book published TODAY.
This eCourse does away with all those excuses people use for not having their book published; excuses like I don’t have time to have my book professionally formatted to look like James Patterson’s books, or I just can’t seem to find anyone who can create a good cover for my book, or my favorite excuse, the publishing companies always reject me.
First, you don’t have to have anyone reformat your book so it looks great. If you’ve tried to publish a book as a Kindle eBook before, you know they can come out looking cayote ugly. Not Good! But what the eBook templates does in this eCourse is to take all the hard work out of creating headers, page numbering, Table of Contents, and all the other niceties, and creates them for you. All you do is insert your chapters and check how things look. If they don’t come out just right, you can simply highlight the headings or the paragraphs and click the correct format option. Done!
But I’m not trying to snow you here. You know the old computer adage; garbage in, garbage out. If your chapters are formatted like garbage, it may take a bit to get them looking like they should. Nothing works perfectly all the time. But when you’re done, your book will actually be as nicely formatted as any of James Patterson’s books.
As for the book cover, this seems to cause people a lot of trouble. I don’t know why. I guess we like to obsess over getting them to look just right. Some people spend more time designing the cover then they do writing the book. But tell me, can you name the last book you loved because the cover was perfectly typeset or had just the right background image?
Yea, sure, nobody likes to see an ugly cover. But that’s why we not only provide multiple cover designs in our eBook Cover template, but we also provide dozens of high-quality images to use as background images. And we provide even more each month to tantalize you into publishing more books through our social network.
Well, just forget them. Once you have your eBook formatted, and a nice cover created, we show you how to turn it into a publishable Kindle ebook, ready to be uploaded to Amazon and placed in their book store. So, screw the publishing companies!! And everything else that gets in the way of getting your book published. You can now have your book being sold 24/7 in the largest online bookstore in the world and it doesn’t cost you a cent AND you can do it without THEIR permission. Take that!
Now, about those two college classmates I mention at the beginning of this letter. They both seemed to have the same talent, the same desire, but what caused them to have such different outcomes? I believe it boils down to one just being willing to put their dreams out there. She didn’t play it safe. She didn’t let others stand in her way of becoming published. Consequently, by doing something, she got the results that maybe she didn’t expect; like success.
I cannot promise you will become a best-selling, super successful author just by using this eCourse. Not one can do that. But what I can promise is that by taking action TODAY and putting yourself and your work out there, you can take control of your career and not be letting anyone or anything stand in your way.
