There is nothing more boring than reading a ton of backstory crammed into scene after scene in a book. At least for me, now don't get me wrong, I'm interested in the character's motives, why she might hate men in general. Or why he hates women, but there's a right way and a wrong way to do the backstory.

We all have an inner critic! It's that individual who is constantly saying things like, "That's terrible writing, why don't you just give up?" or "You think you're a writer? That's an awful story line, no one is going to read this!" or "You think you can be a bestseller, or make money from your writing, not if you keep writing this drivel!" And the list goes on and on and on. So what do you do when your inner critic who is speaking with your mother's, father's, or high school English teacher's voice, won't shut up?

On more than one occasion, author friends who have just published their first book have asked me what they can do quickly to promote their book. Contrary to what many authors believe you cannot just write a book, publish it and expect it to make sales. As much as we’d all love for it to work that way, it doesn’t. But there are things you can do to right now in thirty minutes that will help you to promote your book.

One of the worst things in my opinion that can happen is to write an entire story, and then no one buys because said story has three issues, and these issues kill the story on arrival.

The first two articles in this series dealt mainly with learning how to change your thinking, and alter the scripts in your mind so you can receive that which you so much want to receive, bestselling author status. I am now going to propose four experiments author Pam Grout style that you can use to prove to yourself that there really is a universe, God, divine Poo Ba or whoever that wants to give you exactly what you want. Honestly, just like Pam I don't really care what you call it, The Force aka Star Wars, God, Athena, Zeus, or the field of infinite potentiality (that's Pam's name for it). However, in order for these experiments to work, you do have to believe in something out there that is greater than yourself, whatever name you choose.

As I spoke of in Part 1 of this series, the only thing really that is stopping you from being a bestselling author is your thinking. Mental scripts that we learn from our parents, from society, and even from other authors and publishers often prevent us from having what we truly want from life. In the case of this series that is to be a bestselling author.
