Don't fall for this diabolical myth about your book!
If you already have, you know it hurts.The myth is the idea that you're going to publish this book and you're going to earn passive income, meet influencers and build your email list. Your business will be on autopilot. You're going to make huge royalties, and pretty soon you’ll quit your day job and all that stuff. This is just not true.
The reality is, for most nonfiction authors, your book is not your source of income. It's not going to create passive income you can retire on. You have to understand its true purpose.
If this is new to you, it is not your fault. There will be people who let you believe the myth—or even enforce the myth by suggesting you buy their course on how to write a book to make money. The allure will be that you're going to generate instant passive income.
That's not the case. Your book is an authority builder. It's a business card. It is also a sales and marketing tool. But it is not your income.
Virtual summits do all the things that you thought a book would do and more. They will help you create that much needed income as an author.
It's more than just about income though....you will learn:
- How to attract influencers to speak at your summit, even if you have no email list
- You need to be an expert on your summit topic, right? Wrong!
- 7 hidden benefits of hosting a virtual summit
- How to eliminate doubt when reaching out to potential speakers
- Where to find the perfect audience for your summit
- Why marketing to less people creates more attendees
- Why you should never wait to host a summit until "after you publish your book"
- The Truth about where summit attendees really come from
- Say Goodbye to the frustration of small royalties on the backend of your book
- What to do if you aren't technical, but want to host a summit
- When it's ok to let go of your book as the breadwinner
- How to start planning your first summit now
"I loved your ebook. I normally don't read them but the subject was very relevant and the book was super simple to read. I absolutely love your work and your latest Summit Campaign was beyond captivating." - Shawn J., Founder of Elevation Coach

How Successful Entrepreneurs Use A Book To Drive Leads And Sales without wasting time or money!
If you are an entrepreneur who wants to use a book as part of your business, and what works for those who have come before you, then this may be the most important book you ever read, here's why....
But first a warning. Successful use of a book in your business is hard work. As you will see, we interviewed over 30 very successful entrepreneurs and they put effort into the craft. The ideas in this book will work beautifully, but only for those who are willing to actually put in the work. If that is you, then read on!
Our main goal with Author Inc was to assemble a unique group of entrepreneurs and pick their brains to see how they did what they did. But then we took it one step further.
We asked them to map out what they would do if they had to start all over again over the next 30 days if they had to start from scratch. We asked, "If you lost your list, your fame, your books, your products and all of your clients, and nobody knew who you were, what would you do? How would you use publishing to claw your way back?"
The results were amazing! Author Inc immediately morphed from an “interview anthology” to a world class handbook for entrepreneurs who want to use a book as a primary tool in a business.
But Author Inc is not only a must-have handbook, it also teaches:
- How to build a list and make sales starting now, even if you have no list and no product
- 15 counterintuitive habits that entrepreneurs use to rapidly increase the likelihood of success each day (wait until you read the cigar story)
- Where to find the best people for your email and reader lists
- How to eliminate the long slow process of trial and error while building your online empire
- Why you should never go it alone as an author
- Why advertising less may actually make grow your list faster
- Say Goodbye to weeks of trial and error, and start with one of our 30 day plans for your book and business
- The Truth about your relationship with self-publishing platforms and how to maximize your profit from them
- What to do if you have no readers, followers or clients and how to change it quickly

*** Final Results: 1836 Pre-Order Sales using the exact methods in the book! ***
If you are an entrepreneur who is launching a business, this book may be the most important book you ever read, here's why....
But first a warning, this book is not for everyone. This isn't one of those "game the system books" to become a Bestseller on Amazon. There are plenty of those available (ie: become a Bestseller by making a minimum amount of sales in a small niche category).
When I first started, I used those gimmicks myself and I even I show you how in Part 1.
The problem is, when you do that, you end up with what I call The Bestseller Hangover. You've sold a handful of books, and have the title Bestseller, but nothing else. The system in this book requires more work, but leaves you with lots of sales, credibility and a real platform to grow your business. With that said, let’s jump right in…
The Snowball Book Launch is about taking the long game approach to your book launch.
This causes you to focus on all of the items that sell books (both pre-launch and post-launch). The idea is to divide your launch into thirds.
The first third focuses on building everything that will make your life so much easier down the road: for example, things like author lists, keywords, your lead magnet, and your overall message (not just the message of your book, but of you and your business or future business).
The second third focuses on the Pre-Order period, and maximizing sales before your book releases. You absolutely must take advantage of this crucial tool Amazon. Far too few authors really know how to use this or maximize it!
The last third is the book release and what to do after it. You don’t want 50 sales and a Bestseller Banner. You want 1000s of sales, a stream of clients and a platform.
It is called a "Snowball Book Launch", because you are constantly building momentum (and sales) toward your launch date and beyond. It is actually an easier, less-stressful launch.
Not only that, this book teaches:
- 4 things you can do right now, regardless of what stage you are in, to dramatically increase the success of your book launch
- You or your book are your most important assets, right? WRONG!! (find out what is in Chp 3)
- How to eliminate "Book Begging" on social media, and connect with people who will buy
- Where to find thousands of readers (outside of Amazon)
- 6 ways to make your book description virtually guarantee a sale
- Why less advertising works (and is easier)
- One type of launch you should never do if you want long term credibility and a successful business (yet most authors are doing this!)
- Say goodbye to author obscurity and build a real brand for yourself

Want to launch a Bestseller on Amazon?
The Gurus are wasting your time! All you need are these 3 Proven Steps!
Bestseller Book Launch is Ray Brehm’s own formula for launching a Bestseller. After launching one of his first Bestsellers, he sat down and looked at all the work he had done.
The result? 80% of the work was not worth the time, and did not matter in the end. Why had all the gurus been peddling all of these other things to make your book a bestseller?
Who knows, maybe to load you up with content? But they just aren’t necessary. In fact, they can distract you and actually impair the ability of your book to become a bestseller.
A perfect example is when you are told to post to 100 free promo sites. Don’t do it!
Making a book a bestseller really only requires three simple steps. Ray dropped the rest, and the bestsellers came easier. He then began using the same techniques for his clients.
**** "WITHIN 30 DAYS OF WORKING WITH RAY MY BOOK BECAME A BESTSELLER!" ****
***** Jeff Yalden, Best Selling Author, "BOOM!" *****
Bestseller Book Launch tells you the no frills approach to becoming a Bestselling Author. No fluff, no BS, just the exact method the author uses himself and for his clients.
In Bestseller Book Launch, you will learn:
- Why there is NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LAUNCH
- The only three steps you need to take to publish a Bestseller
- The one step most authors mess up and how to become an expert at it
- The only advertising you need to do, ignore what the rest of the experts say
- The one site that is a better place to advertise than all the rest and why most authors don’t understand it
Stop wasting your time on what other gurus tell you!
This is method is easier, faster and more successful than anything else you have read.
If you are going to launch a self-published book, you might as well make it a bestseller, and this book tells you how.

Sometimes writing a book can’t wait, and may even cost you a boatload of money by not being published.
My virtual summit (Book Profit School 2.0) was coming in just over a week, and I had a decision to make.
One of the things we do for our virtual summits is give away a free book to encourage people to enroll. Consuming the summit is free, but that added bonus is a great incentive.
That free book should be related to the summit, or better yet, related to your primary offer. That is, the topic of the book should be whatever your primary product or service is.
For me, I was about to launch my Done-For-You Virtual Summit service after the summit concluded. My summit audience was authors, and virtual summits are extremely beneficial for authors.
I already knew I would be writing a book titled Virtual Summits For Authors. But starting and completing the book 9 days before the start of my summit?
That sounds ludiscrist.
Lucky for me, I had an ace up my sleeve. I had what I now call my Super System.
I decided I had to do it, it made no sense to wait. But I had to be extremely efficient with everything else going on.
I got permission from my wife and kids to lock myself in my home office for four hours on a Saturday.
The system makes it easy. You don’t have to think about anything else but your content.
Each step makes the next super simple, and removes the need to think logically. It puts you in your creative state each when you need to be.
Four hours later my draft was done. Oh, and also I had created a masterclass and audiobook to go with it.
It turned out a far more important achievement than I had imagined.
Though I created it quickly at that time as an incentive for people to enroll in my virtual summit, it did something else.
It created a $20,000 sale of my backend product (before I even started offering it).
I received an email that went something like this:
"I loved your ebook. I normally don't read ebooks from optins but the subject was very relevant and the book was super simple to read. I absolutely love your work and your latest Summit Campaign was beyond captivating. How much is your service?"
Four days later, I had a deal for $20,000.
It is not an exaggeration to say that this person may have simply moved on had I not had that book ready for consumption.
The Super System is not only fast, but more importantly, creates books that are easier to read. That subtle mention of “the book was super simple to read” is not lost on me. It is not easy to read because it was short (it was 16k words).
It is easy to read because the system guides you into making it readable.
Think the Karate Kid, wax on wax off. When you create a book this way, it makes it easier to read.
Oh, and the Super System is rocket science. It is very easy to implement, and follow.
I will show you how to do it in this book. You and your preconceived ideas of book writing will never be the same.
So you have to ask yourself, do you want to take the blue pill or the red pill? (if you haven’t seen The Matrix skip to the end of this introduction).
You take the blue pill—the story ends, you close this book and keep writing books the old way. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how to write highly profitable books over the weekend. You decide.
