What Our Readers Say About The Book

  • The Passion Test

    “Just finished reading this book, and I have to say it's amazing. A lot of great ideas, packed into a short half hour read.

    Their advice starts out with the common admonition - to write a great book. After that, it tells you how to connect with readers and draw them into your book. What I liked best was the advice to begin each chapter with an open ended story. Lay out the basic information, and stop short...saying, "but first," and use that pause to keep readers turning the pages.

    Very interesting.”

    “Getting Past Stuck. I was blessed to download this book after hearing the authors speak during Christine Kloser's 2-week Transformational Author Experience webinar. I was overflowing with amazing knowledge from that experience. Yet, I've been living in the limbo of self-doubt and belief in the 4-5 months since. Enlightened Bestseller pushed me over the hump and reassured me that I am uniquely qualified and more than capable of writing the book I feel compelled to birth. Not only that, I LOOK FORWARD to updating this post in 2016 to attest to their work. I WILL BE a bestselling author! Thanks so much for sharing the stories and information Janet, Marci, Chris, and Geoff!!”

    “This book gives you the outline to writing a bestseller. This is something we all want. It is simple, yet complete in it's outline to writing the best book possible. I wish I had read this before writing my first book. It would have made it so much easier. As it was I wrote by the seat of my pants. It was published and did pretty well for a first book. I am now working on two other books and will incorporate what I have learned from Enlightened Bestseller to see if i can actually write a bestseller with their help. Self-help books are the fasted selling books, because everyone wants help with something, whether it is caring for the elderly, as my first book was, to learning how to fix the plumbing in your home. I love the book and will pass it on to other writers I know. Thank you.”

    “I found 2 chapters especially helpful. One is a chapter that offers an exercise to help you clarify what it is you offer to your readers. The second chapter I liked was the most informative. It outlines how to research and know your competition. It also tells you how to find the right keywords to include in your book title. Enlightened Bestseller is already outdated in one aspect: it says to use the 'google keyword tool,' which is no longer available. You'll have to research another tool to complete the task... there are others available.”

    “If you want to write a great book - start here! Deciding to write a book may seem easy. Finding information on what steps to take and what order to take them in is daunting. To have three bestselling authors and a marketing guru lay out the steps for you, well that's priceless! This book is easy to read and full of very valuable advice and tips to help the fledgling author get started in the right direction. It is very engaging yet no-nonsense. A must read for anyone thinking about embarking on the journey to become a published author.”
