number of books, starting around 30-50 thousand copies. Certain
bookstores report the sales to certain lists and the book is listed as a

“TAKE THE MYTH OUT OF BESTSELLER, AND WRITE YOU ONE!”

When we see the word "Bestseller," it usually means selling a great
number of books, starting around 30-50 thousand copies. Certain
bookstores report the sales to certain lists and the book is listed as a
bestseller. Well, many, many bookstores that sell lots of an author’s
books do not report to those lists. Then there are ordinary writers like
you and me who sell thousands of books on their own and they don’t report
to those lists. Those lists usually don’t include self-published or small
press writers. Many bookstores and lists don’t report to Publisher’s
Weekly, the New York Times and USA Today. What a huge disparity!

But I want to share with you something all such books have in common,
reported and unreported— all are rather well written, most have a fresh
concept, and all are pretty well edited. So in this equation, we know
that bestsellers have three things in common: 1) they’re well written. 2)
Have a fresh concept, 3) they’re well edited—no typos or verb-noun
disagreement, no misspelling, or run on sentences—only if the writer is
breaking the rule to prove some point.

I’ve read quite a few bestsellers that are simple and straightforward,
some with twists and turns, but they all have those three qualities in
common, and my writing experiences allow me to take the myth out of how
they get to be bestsellers. To show that you have a bestseller in you. We
all have one; it just needs to be written, edited, polished and promoted.
I took five years to write my bestseller-kind-of- novel, but I had no one
to teach me the next step. I’m moving toward it in the trial and error
mode. I want to make this easier for you. These articles are dedicated to
those of us who want to be bestsellers. Ordinary sales just aren’t enough
for us. We’re experimenting with writing the bestseller -kind-of-book,
polishing and promoting it to bestseller status. I’ll share every tip
with you as we go along.

Now back to Bestseller. I consider a bestseller as a book that is well
written, has a fresh concept, and is promoted and sold to a lot of
readers. That’s exactly what Mark victor Hansen (Chicken Soup for the
Soul) did. He sold those little simple books from the back of his car
until he found his path to becoming a bestseller —getting publicity is one
of the paths. He started doing lots of radio interviews every day. But
his way might not be your way. It all depends on your book. And then, it
could be your way. We shall see.

My name is Martha Tucker, and I’m sure you’ve seen my novel on the
Internet somewhere—The Mayor’s Wife Wore Sapphires. It’s a romantic inner
city political thriller. I ask you to become familiar with it because I’m
going to be using it to explain certain very necessary principles to you —
read the three free chapters: www.urbanclassicbooks.com. The novel has
two significant 5-Star Reviews and racking up more every day. The Mayor’s
Wife Wore Sapphires is proof that your number one priority is to write a
Bestseller-kind-of-book. After it was completed and edited, it took
another year to get the edit I wanted. Never be discouraged.

If your book is dull, objectionable, thrown toge ther with a weak plot and
cardboard characters, no amount of promoting is going to give it legs to
stand on as a bestseller. While you’re over on my website —
www.urbanclassicbooks.com, look at the praises my novel got. If you want
to see the techniques I use in action, the secrets I applied, then read
chapters from my book on my website.

I am going to be using live examples, even by page numbers, to teach you
how to write the bestseller-kind-of-novel, because fiction is more
difficult to promote than nonfiction. With nonfiction, thousands of
people need to know exactly what you’re sharing and are willing to pay
right then according to fulfill their need. But fiction is born into a
competitive world—mostly dominated by the popularity of the author’s
name—sports figures, actresses, actors, the queen, the president, the
President’s wife. Fiction books that immediately become bestsellers are
usually those written by big name celebrities or well -known authors.
Don’t blame the publisher for knowing that people recognize those names
and will pay. Those names get free publicity on Good Morning America, The
Today Show and USA Today, and Oprah isn’t out of the question.

But don’t fear. There is a way to sell tons of fiction books for ordinary
people like you and me. You have to do your part to change your life in
one fell swoop—from struggling writer to sought after, wealthy author.

Now read the free opening chapters of The Mayor’s Wife Wore Sapphires and
consider the "who, what, when, where and how" in this novel. See how
those elements were smoothly tied together so they don’t seem like
separate parts. Read the prologue and answer the questions for yourself.
When you finish my articles you never have to settle for selling your
novel to only your circle of family and friends. You can be a bestseller!
Till next time###
