Here are a few book marketing and book writing tips from great writers. This is how you write and market great books!
One. Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder. — E. B White, novelist
This is how you write great books. You start with wonder. You continue through wonder. And you end in wonder.
Two. I learned to look at all the good in the world and to try to give some of it back, because I believed in it completely and utterly. — Anna Quindlen, novelist
If you want to write a bestselling book, start by giving back all the good in the world that has come to you. Share that. Once you do, people will line up to help you share it. It is those fans that will make your book a bestseller.
Three. If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather the wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea. — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, novelist
If you want to sell more books, don’t encourage humdrum followers. Teach your fans to yearn for what your book offers. Teach them to yearn for your knowledge, your experience, your entertainment, your passion. Teach them to yearn for their own passion. Show them that your book fulfills that passion.
