|Can you sell 9,000 copies of that book in a single week? If the answer is no, then your book is not yet bestseller material. But it can be with the right strategies and the right systems in place.|
In order to reach the top of the New York Times Bestseller list, you have to be able to sell 9,000 copies through multiple different distributors in a single week. In theory, that means you could pay $250,000 to some place and guarantee that it would be on that list for one week by buying 100 copies of your book from 100 stores in 100 different cities, but all that’s going to do is wind up with you having a whole lot of copies of your book and being able to stamp “New York Times Bestseller” on the front cover. That won’t change lives, or hearts, or minds. It also won’t make you any money.
Writing a Book Is Just the Beginning of the Story
If you don’t know how to write a book, I’ve written the instructions for you. Once you’ve written your book, though, that’s not the end of the story for you. That’s just the beginning. Now you have to do the real work. The hard work. You have to put together a strategy to actually sell that book. You need to know your audience, who is most likely to buy it, and why they are buying in the first place. You need a solid strategy and someone who can help you deliver on that strategy so you can achieve the results you desire.
8 Seconds To Impress
Your book has exactly 8 seconds to impress a person, whether they are browsing a book catalog, reading a headline, or listening to you pitch the book idea in person. Why 8 seconds? Because that’s exactly how long the average attention span is. If you can’t catch a person’s attention in 8 seconds, they’ve already moved on to the next thing.
What Are You Writing? Why Does It Matter?
Can you answer those two questions in 8 seconds? Do you understand why those questions matter? If not, you’ve come to the right place.
The Power To Explain Your Book and Why It Matters
Nobody cares about your book until they know what it is going to do for them. And you must be able to answer those two questions in your 8 second time limit. It’s a tough job. But if you can’t do it, you also won’t be able to sell your existing books or get people begging to hear more about the book you’re currently working to finish.

Why I Care About Writers
There is a quote by Harry S. Truman that I love. “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
If you think about it, what that really means is that writers have extraordinary power to shape the future of our world. We lead the leaders. What we write today influences tomorrow’s leaders. For example, whether you believe the Bible is true or not, how many countless generations and entire nations have been influenced by what is written in those pages? How many people’s futures have been impacted by what those writers put down on the page?
A World at a Crossroads
There is no doubt that our world is in trouble. We are at a crossroads between war and peace, life and death. The choice is ours to make. Writers have the ability to influence the choices that people make. They have the ability to change the minds and the hearts of the people, which will in turn lead to changes in the world. All that is needed is for the right writers to be gathered together and empowered to do what comes naturally to them: paint a picture with words.
This is Why 40 Day Writer Exists
