Summary

Learning how to write a book is easy. Learning how to write a book that doesn't suck and can actually make you money - and set you up for a full-time writing career is harder.

But it's nowhere near impossible. And it's far more doable than you can imagine.

The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations:

1) Most self-published nonfiction books suck. 2) It's almost impossible to make a living from one self-published nonfiction book.

Believe me, I tried. No one has more churned out more epic pieces of monumental Kindle crap than I have.

But then, through making every mistake a writer can, I finally learned and honed a simple step-by-step approach to writing books that move people, and allow me to have a full-time job as a writer.

And it's that system I'd like to share with you in How to Write a Book That Doesn't Suck and Will Actually Sell...

Here's a little glimpse of what I cover:

In Chapter 1, I go over the "Super-Ninja Secrets to Making a Living With Your Books". I show you a simple, repeatable strategy you can use to build little silos of passive income awesomeness doing something you love.

In Chapter 2, "Yeah, But What the Hell Am I Going to Write About?" I show you some quick and easy exercises to discover a book topic that's personal, meaningful and marketable.

And much, much more!

So if you've always wanted to learn how to write a book, but you felt like the steps to writing a book were too complicated, or above your skill level, or just too difficult to complete...

...then please give How to Write a Book That Doesn't Suck and Will Actually Sell a chance. You just find that book - and career - you've always dreamed of.

YES! YES! YES! I loved it.

I am now a fan-boy!

Michael Rogan has done a fine job of giving me clear actionable steps. This was the second audio book of his I had downloaded and have been inspired by (the first was his book on Kindle publishing).

As a result of the great content delivered in clear, incremental steps I have gone and bought a third of his audio books on being a published writer (along with a fourth that I suspect is his but written under a pseudonym... on video marketing).

I like that he addresses areas of concern to me and answers questions I had been considering. I thoroughly enjoy some of the similes and metaphors he throws in for sheer entertainment value.

Yes, no one can write a book as bad as Paris Hilton's autobiography. I chortled. A lot. Damn funny stuff.

Also Gregory Zarcone does a sterling job in infusing this audio book with life.

Great writing. Great narration. Great audio book.

If the title appeals to you then you need to get your rear in gear and part with your pennies to download this book.

Happy learning! Happy writing.

Great thought organizer

I've started to write a book three times. I was so sporadic with my ideas a quit all three times. I just needed some parameters to follow. This book gave them to me

Mostly Useful

Good information and useful, short and to the point, which was the author practicing what he preaches. Ultimately, the bad language got in the way. I realize that the word "Suck" in the title is a clue, but it got to the point of a fifth-grader who learned a new word. Had we been sitting together on a bus, I would have changed seats.

No nonsense, concise and easy read

This is a great book to get you started in writing nonfiction books, especially for Kindle publishing. Like the title promises there is no BS and no fluff in Michael Rogan's writing. It's encouragingand will get you started. The fact that it's short is an added bonus.

Nailed It!!

The information in this book is so good it actually prompted me to take notes which I seldom ever do. I'll definitely listen to this book again and I would recommend it to any author as you'll be surprised at how this book will build your confidence, remove your fear and really help you to get started.

Informative but lacking

I enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and kept my attention. However, it is more of an overview on the topic and doesn't get into issues about reference and documentation for the research it has you do.

Great start.

Best way to start a realistic career as a writer, without the fluff or technical jargon, yet comprehensive and complete. Straight to the point, no nonsense advice worth every penny and more.
