If you’ve read my bio, you know that I’ve coached over 800 authors and helped both fiction and nonfiction books hit the New York Times bestseller list. Based on this success, authors frequently ask me:
What is the best way to sell a LOT of books?
You might find my answer surprising…
Learn how to CONTROL your book sales.
You probably thought I was going to say, “Get interviewed on Good Morning America” or “Get a celebrity to endorse your book.” Yes, those things would be nice if they happen. But, you cannot make them happen. That’s why the concept of control is vital to your success.
The good news is that any author can take greater control over the way you reach readers and sell books. The key is to master these 5 marketing skills:
- Create scarcity that leads readers to take action
- Build a big email list and send persuasive campaigns
- Connect with key influencers who provide free exposure
- Buy targeted online ads that turn a profit (Facebook, Amazon, etc.)
- Launch spinoff products that dramatically boost your income
Want to control your book sales rather than aimlessly hope readers will purchase? Learn how to excel in the five areas above. It’s that simple. I’m dead serious.
Where do you stand on this issue? Are you confidently in control of your book sales? Or, does attracting readers seem out of your control leaving you feeling helpless?

Complete 15 quick questions. In a matter of minutes, you will know if you’re in control of your book sales or not. More importantly, you’ll see the areas where you need to improve.
Obviously, there’s a difference between knowing WHAT to do versus HOW to do it right. As the old saying goes, “The devil is in the details.”
For example, if you want to learn how to ski without breaking your neck, then you have to learn more than just, “point your skis downhill.” You must learn how to master your balance, posture, and speed.
Likewise, if you want to control your book sales, you must learn to master the five marketing skills that I described above. If you’re thinking “easier said than done,” then you understand why I started my consulting practice 13 years ago.
I founded Wildfire Marketing to teach authors how to gain control over their book sales and take charge of their career. I give away a lot of free advice to help new authors understand the basics. You can read over 30 free articles on my website.
But, if you really want to grow your book sales and control your future, you have to go beyond just reading free stuff on the Internet. Real success occurs by learning advanced-level marketing skills from an expert. It’s the same approach as hiring a ski instructor, a financial advisor, or a medical specialist to help you achieve important goals.
I created the Book Marketing Master Class for this exact purpose. It’s a one-to-one experience where I will personally teach you how to control your book sales. You can learn from me in-person or via live video instruction.
Every author who has taken my Book Marketing Master Class says it opened their eyes to new possibilities. If you’re tired of walking alone and would like an expert guide, the master class could be the solution. It’s fun. It’s affordable. Best of all, it works.

That’s right. I’ll talk to you for free to determine if the Book Marketing Master Class is a good fit and answer any questions. To qualify, you must already have books for sale and be striving to make partial or full-time income as an author. Or, you must be a full-time author who wants to raise the bar even higher on your book sales and annual income. Most importantly, you need a solid work ethic, a budget to invest in your growth, and a willingness to embrace my proven system.
I’ve coached fiction and non-fiction authors. I’ve worked with traditionally-published and self-published indies. I’ve trained almost every type of author how to boost their book sales and control their future.
