Join The Psychic School For Clairvoyant Development.
You need to write for trends. This is important if you want your books to sell well.
But you can't write for the trends happening now, because by the time you finish the novel, the trend will be over. You must write for the trends that are going to happen in two years when you are done editing and writing your book.
This is why you must join this psychic school and develop your latent psychic talents. All bestselling authors can tell the future and knew their book was going to be a bestseller even before they wrote the first chapter.
Duh. It's so easy. I don't know why all authors don't write for trends.
Write books with a list about how to become a bestselling author, even though you don't have a bestselling novel so desperate writers will buy it and your book about writing bestsellers will become a bestseller. And then when anyone accuses you of not having written a best seller, you can point at this book and say,"See! I have a bestseller!"
Whoops. Let's try that again....
(New) Step 2:
Read lists like this over and over again until you memorize them.
No one can write a perfect novel, but if your novel doesn't become a bestseller than that means you weren't perfect, missed one of these rules, and now you suck and everyone hates you.
Make your books free.
You can't make any money unless you give your books away.
How does that work, you ask? Well, you were taught math wrong in school. You always thought $0=$0, but if you add enough zeros together, like, if you give away 100 books for $0, it actually equals $1,000.
Ebooks are magic, you see, and bestselling authors are skilled wizards who have learned to manipulate this magic. They make their first book free and as readers click on the download button, wires get crossed and every 0 actually gets a 1 added in front of it. That's what binary code is all about. It's really complicated, but if you become an android, then binary code will make sense to you and you'll learn how to add all those 1's in front of all those 0's.
So, you see, all you have to do if you want to become a bestselling author is replace some of your organic parts with cybernetic ones!!! It's that easy!!!
You have to use social media to sell your books. Readers are eager to network with authors, so you must join every single social media site out there. Even ones no one has ever heard of, like Ello. I've had an account on there for years that I never use and it's so helpful to me!
It won't take that much of your time to update them regularly. Only about 25 hours a day, 8 days a week. That might sound like a lot of time, but this is where your cybernetic parts also come in. They'll help you stay awake, so you never have to sleep again.
Also, don't forget that if you want to be on social media 25 hours a day, 8 days a week, you're going to have to learn how to turn back time using your wizarding skills that I was talking about earlier.
If you don't have wizarding skills, no problem! Just join The Grey School Of Wizardry and you'll be on your way to turning back time in no time. It's THAT easy!
All this time I was trying to sell books without cybernetic parts, psychic powers, and magical spells. I was so stupid.
If you tried all these steps and none of this stuff worked, then I'm afraid that your problem must be a terrible book cover. Everyone knows that people judge books by their covers, so if no one likes your novel then your book cover must SUCK!
There are award winning authors out there and they are award winners for a reason. Their covers are beautiful, take this gem, which is a book cover for a book written by an author with several awards. Her book has almost 300 reviews, which is more than most of us will ever see:
Have you ever seen a cover that was more perfect? I know it's hard to imagine making a cover as pretty as that one, but you're going to have to if you want to become a bestselling author.
We all want to believe that society loves the ugly people and that they're just as special as the pretty ones, but we just tell that to ugly people so they stop feeling bad about themselves. Books are the same way.
If you want your book to be loved and not be rejected by society, then you're going to have to make it beautiful. JUST FACE IT!
If you tried all these steps and your book is still not a bestseller, then I'm sorry, but we're going to have to kick you out of writing. Because the problem probably is that you just suck period.
Like I said, these steps are guaranteed, so if you tried them and failed, then that must mean there is something inherently wrong with you.
This is not me being a narcissist or talking down to you, I'm just better than you and always right. So if my list doesn't work for you, then you just suck and I'm sorry, but you'll have to quit publishing.
