HOW TO WRITE A BEST-SELLER
By Arthur Zulu
If you want to write a best-seller, you may wish to write on any or all of genres discussed below. This is because they are topics that attract an all time sale. It is frustrating for an author to spend nights and days, writing and re – writing, only to release his work to an unreceptive public. Most writers cause it with their difficult writings, and on strange subjects. Consider an author spending his time writing THE DANCE OF A COCKROACH! Who cares? It is only a mental exercise to keep writer on duty. But if you are writing for money (the muses forgive you), you must target an audience -- a wide audience for your work.
Now, let’s consider best selling subjects to write about.
General interest topics make great sales. Yes, write a book on a subject that interests people. Even if others have written on such topics, it will continue to command general attention.
The film, LOVE AND SEX by Valerie Breiman got instant attention, and even hundreds were turned back when it premiered at Sundance Film Festival to a packed theater. Beware though of writing pornography. You will lose your audience, and your works will be stigmatized.
Apart from love and sex, people want to know how to make money, how to find a panacea for incurable diseases; and so on. Try writing a fiction, for example on how AIDS resistant mosquitoes were used to cure AIDS patients in some distant land. That will generate instant interest, and put scientists on their toes to find a cure for AIDS, using mosquitoes. Sounds funny? Not at all!
Success books cannot be bettered That’s true, for who is he that wants to fail? It is for this reason that how - to books are in great demand. And a writer, like Anthony Robbins with his book, AWAKEN THE GIANT WITHIN, has become an icon. People lack confidence in themselves, are frustrated, and need guidance to succeed.
If you, therefore, want to join Tony Robbins and others in his league, dream big dreams on how to help people succeed in life. Tell them they are greatest, tell them to brighten up for success is around corner, tell them that failure is a trickster, and tell them they have a mission to accomplish on earth, and that they must accomplish it only if they try. And then your reward for this education will be in big sales and plenty of cash!
Mystery Books are hot The latest sensations are mystery books. Suddenly, everyone wants to know about ET’s, witches, wizards, and so on. Many authors have been identified in this genre, and are smiling away to bank. See how HARRY PORTER series is selling, yet public is asking for more. So if you dream up THE SECOND COMING OF JULIUS CAESAR with his dead warriors from Hades, all armed to launch a final war on world’s super power, book will sell out, before publication.
