your book manuscript compelling? Tell the truth; could it use
some work to make it crisp? Yes. Here are some tips to make
your book writing pull readers in by the collar. Also, you'll
discover how to write a book that keeps them reading to the
end. Make it compelling enough and your book readers will tell
all their friends about your great book.
Use the tips below to help you write your book
like a pro to finish stronger and sell longer:
Use shorter sentences. Slash your sentences to under
fifteen to seventeen words. Don't bog your readers with complex
sentences. Remember multiple phrases slow your reader's comprehension.
Make it easy. Get to the point fast.
Write compelling copy. Write for the seventh grade
level. Reward your readers with benefits for them. Clear, easy
to understand copy makes your reader want to read your book
to the end. Fill your writing with what's in it for them. They'll
come back for more and tell all their friends.
Write with specific details. Avoid generalities. Engage
your reader's emotion with specifics. Let them experience color,
size and shape. Instead of, "Complete your degree online
fast to increase your income." Say, "Complete your
master degree online fast so you can upgrade your lifestyle,
get vacations, health insurance and other corporate benefits."
Specific benefits create a stronger pull than the general benefit
of increased income.
Slash adverbs within your book. Go through and cut
words like openly, suddenly, very that tell the reader instead
of show the reader. Circle all the (ly) and very words. Pull
out your thesaurus and replace them with power words that show
emotion or describe.

sense? Test it; make sure it sounds natural by reading it aloud.
When you don't understand something, your reader will misunderstand
too. After it's passed the self-editing process, pass it on
for peer editing.
Make your stories and/or dialogue believable. Don't
make it read like a long boring speech. It will put your readers
to sleep just as a long winded speaker does. Make your short
stories reflect real life situations. They will breathe life
into your book and keep the reader reading.
Enlist your friends and associates for peer-editing.
Send them small sections at a time and ask for feedback through
a mini-survey. Value their time. Make them feel special. Remember
to reward them with a free article or special report for their
