Every author wants to write a bestseller, but the question is, how?
Many blogs, articles, books and webinars claim to be able to teach you how to write a bestseller.
Is it even possible to write a bestseller before Christmas? Absolutely!
Many bestsellers have been written quickly. And the point isn’t to dash off a bestseller – the point is that you can write a bestseller in less time than you think.
Why not before Christmas?
The biggest issue is not a matter of talent but strategy.
Why not learn to write a bestseller from a bestselling author? Why not learn from an entire team of bestselling authors (or those who study them)? Why not kidnap a bestselling author and force him to rewrite his latest book — wait, never mind —I think that is already a thing.
While no one knows the magic formula for guaranteeing a bestseller for everyone every time (or at least they ain’t sayin’), there are patterns, techniques and skill sets that seem to proceed and predict bestsellers.
