Welcome to my blog, How to Write A Best Seller

I want to tell you about how to make money, and make it FAST! You only have to write one biggie to make it. Worried about your grammar skills? Don’t worry. That isn’t critical. Sentence fragments never stopped Lee Child from winning TWO prizes for his debut Jack Reacher novel. Some of the best writers out there get away with murder. Head hopping getting you down? New Yorks Times best selling authors use it. J.R.R. Tolkien uses it. Why shouldn’t you use it? Verb tenses getting muddled up by your editor? Verb tenses never slowed William Faulkner down. By the way, here at How To Write A Best Seller, we love adverbs. 1960s Sci-Fi is cool and they used ’em. You can too. Just sign up below and join our fantastic mailing list with 100’s of thousands of others, and you will be on your way.
