You...A Bestselling Author?


I wrote my first book, 100 Ways to Enhance Self Concept in the Classroom, back in the 1970s when I was a teacher in Chicago. But as a teacher I did not know anything about selling books.  I just wanted to make a difference and contribute my ideas to the world.


What I learned very quickly was that unless you let people know about your book, no one is going to buy it.  


Today, my hope is that I can inspire and empower people to achieve more of what they want to do, and I love sharing information that I think will help people fulfill their dreams.  That’s why my friend, Steve Harrison, and I recently teamed up to create a free video training series specifically geared toward anyone who has written a book, or wants to some day.


I’ve known Steve for years – ever since we used his company to promote Chicken Soup for the Soul. He has helped more than 12,000 authors promote their books and he is an expert at what he does. In these videos we share the strategies I've used to sell over 500 million copies of Chicken Soup for The Soul, launch 47 books to the New York Times Best Seller List and much more!


In this three-part series of FREE online training videos you’ll discover:



8 critical things you need to know to become a successful author.
How to get started writing your book (and get it done quickly).
What it takes to hit the New York Times Best Seller List (and key mistakes
that prevent many authors from hitting the list even when they sell lots of books).
The Author's Money Tree and ten often-overlooked ways to profit from your book.
The key component your book MUST include to be successful.
How one book generated only $35,000 in royalties but over $10 million in total revenue.

Chicken Soup for the Soul.
10 keys to creating a bestselling book before you finish writing it.
