Publisher's Summary

Learning how to write a book is easy. Learning how to write a book that doesn't suck and can actually make you money - and set you up for a full-time writing career is harder.

But it's nowhere near impossible. And it's far more doable than you can imagine.

The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations:

1) Most self-published nonfiction books suck. 2) It's almost impossible to make a living from one self-published nonfiction book.

Believe me, I tried. No one has more churned out more epic pieces of monumental Kindle crap than I have.

But then, through making every mistake a writer can, I finally learned and honed a simple step-by-step approach to writing books that move people, and allow me to have a full-time job as a writer.

And it's that system I'd like to share with you in How to Write a Book That Doesn't Suck and Will Actually Sell...

Here's a little glimpse of what I cover:

In Chapter 1, I go over the "Super-Ninja Secrets to Making a Living With Your Books". I show you a simple, repeatable strategy you can use to build little silos of passive income awesomeness doing something you love.

In Chapter 2, "Yeah, But What the Hell Am I Going to Write About?" I show you some quick and easy exercises to discover a book topic that's personal, meaningful and marketable.

And much, much more!

So if you've always wanted to learn how to write a book, but you felt like the steps to writing a book were too complicated, or above your skill level, or just too difficult to complete...

...then please give How to Write a Book That Doesn't Suck and Will Actually Sell a chance. You just find that book - and career - you've always dreamed of.

    Story
    "Well lain out. Became an instant ToDo List"

    Information is straight to the point. Listen the first time to become familiar. Listen the second time with pen and notebook. Setup one page per chapter and list the ToDos as you listen the second time.
    Very very helpful book!

    Story
    "Inspiring and easy to digest"

    The narrator is very pleasant. The bite-sized information is well structured. I'm inspired to get writing right now! Love the smart ass attitude - it works well here and is funny. NOT BORING! Will probably buy the print copy for reference.

    Story
    "Real advice from a real practitioner."

    If you want the real nuts and bolts on getting a book, or many books, done - get this. He provided good street wise advice on getting new book ideas, researching, outlining, organizing, writing and publishing your book. Excuse me. I'm going to start listening again, for the third time.

    Story
    "I'll give his method a try"

    This is a short book about how to write short books in the "How To" section, primarily. He puts his own personality into the book and relates a little personal information. I might get a few of his related works as e books instead of on audio to save a couple dollars.

    Story
    "A Game Changer"
    Would you listen to How to Write a Book That Doesn't Suck and Will Actually Sell again? Why?

    No. I do not need to know more than I have learned.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It motivated me to write a book I never would have dreamed I could or would even want to create. I did it in less than a week and submitted it to Amazon for Kindle publication.


    What does Gregory Zarcone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A very easy to listen to method of learning material that might not be as easy to read.


    Any additional comments?

    All I can say is that reading this book has enabled me to accomplish something beyond my own imagination. Thank you Michael. I would like to tell you personally how well your method works.

    Story
    "Good, specific advise that one can use immediately"

    This is not the usual compilation of generalities feel-good-you-can-really-do-it-believe-in-yourself blah-blah-blah but actually an usable plan of action with very good information.

    The narration is very professional and conveys and reinforces the spirit of the work.

    Very good!
