Anyone can write a book, but not everyone can write a best-selling book. There are hundreds of ways for someone to successfully write a best-seller. Best-selling authors like Stephen King, John Green, and J.K. Rowling are all different, and their expertise on book writing doesn’t match, however, could there be a secret formula to getting your book to be a best seller? Definitely. Here are some excellent writing advice that most best-selling authors have been using to help you write your best-selling gem.
Plan your book
The best way to make your book into a best-seller is to plan early. It is to prevent writer’s block because you know exactly what’s going to happen next and where you are heading with the story. It can also help avoid plot holes because you’ll know just by reading the outline that something is off or that some pieces don’t fit together. Be creative too! It will make your book much enjoyable. Mix all these things and the writing process will run smoothly.
You write. Instead of sulking in a corner complaining about not writing, you write. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You can rewrite later. The point of writing and writing is that you are moving forward and there is a progress with your book. Don’t rewrite chapter after chapter either. Rewrite after you finish writing. But as of now, write something! You can’t have a best-selling book when you haven’t written anything.
Proofread your work
You should never skip this step. In writing a book, mistakes are inevitable. It can either be typos, a few missing words, or grammatical errors; it can hugely affect your reputation not only as a person but as a writer. Who would want to read a poorly-written book? It won’t be worth the cash. Besides, have you ever heard of best-selling books that aren’t beautifully written? Exactly.
Have a good book cover
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Does that ring a bell? Of course, it’s true that not all books that have good covers are great books, and not all great books have good covers. But then again, we cannot deny the fact that people, in fact, do judge a book by its cover. If the book cover is not attractive enough, why would you buy it? It’s simple logic. So, to attract the attention of readers, then a good book cover is a must.
Publish your book
Publish your book whether it is for you, to get recognition and validation, for the benefit of others, or for money. Don’t let it just sit there on your computer. Put it up online or print copies and share them with the world.
Promote your book
Promote your book on social media platforms and advertise your book on websites to have more readers. Post it on Amazon and let readers review it to get people talking. Make a one-minute video trailer for your book to hype the audience. Your book won’t be a best seller if people don’t know it exists.
Hire a professional
If you have a creative mind but lack the writing, editing, and marketing skills, then hire a professional. Let a publishing agency do all the work for you. Yes, this is possible!
