your book manuscript have BORING stamped on it? If so, I have
good news for you!
You don’t have to settle for a boring book. I can assure
you if it’s boring to you, it will most likely be boring
to your reader.
My tip for today ‘Put the Power of Stories
Into Your Book’ shows you how to stamp INTERESTING on
your manuscript instead. Implementing this tip alone can put
your book at the top of your targeted seller’s list.
I’ve discovered over the years, there
are two main reasons people want to read a non-fiction book.
They read to be educated about a certain topic and they read
to be entertained. Yes, I did say entertained. People still
want to be entertained, even if it’s a non-fiction book.
There are many ways to do that but one powerful
way to educate and entertain your reader is to put stories into
your book. A simple way to get started is to weave your personal
story related to your book’s topic into your introduction.
Furthermore, you can amp up the interest level
for your book by sprinkling stories into each chapter, sidebar,
illustrations and examples to name a few places. Even your case
studies can become your customer success stories. You might
consider summing up your chapter with a short related story
to prove a point or confirm what you’ve been explaining
within the chapter.
However you decide to weave stories into your
book, you will accomplish three simple things when you do:
Create a stronger connection with your audience. Sprinkling
stories will create a little oasis where you can make friends
with your readers. Your friends will begin to refer you and
your helpful book. Then they refer it to their friends and their
friends refer it to their friends and so on. Before you know
it your book has gone viral.
2. Write compelling chapters. Include
stories and your book’s chapters become interesting and
entertaining to your readers. Since your chapters are now compelling,
your readers won’t be able to put your book down until
they have read the entire book.
3. Create a journey. With
stories, you create a journey for your readers. People love
to go on a journey. We all love journeys. With stories included,
your non-fiction book becomes an educational journey that your
readers will love to travel.
today! If you don’t include some stories, you may end
up with a manuscript stamped BORING. Join the inner circle of
successful authors and begin thinking about how you can spice
up your manuscript’s copy with stories. As always, keep
it in balance. Don’t over do it; sprinkle your stories
strategically throughout your book. Surprise your reader. Create
a little magical moment then dive right back in with your teaching
or the explanations of your topic. I’m looking forward
to seeing your successful story filled non-fiction book in print
