How to Create a New York Times Bestseller
On Tuesday, April 10th, 8:00 p.m. Eastern, I'll be hosting a two-hour teleseminar on how to create a New York Times bestseller. The system I will be describing on this teleseminar is a proven method of getting a book on the New York Times bestseller list. During the teleseminar, I'll be describing a step-by-step method for getting your book on that list -- and by extension -- onto the front shelves of every bookstore in America. Front and center, discounted, prime placement -- all yours for the asking.

If you want to sign up for this step-by-step, full-disclosure seminar, go to On that page are listed all the bonuses you will received as part of this teleseminar program.

Question: Is this program just for new books or can it be done for any book? My book came out in May 2005.

Answer: It can be used for any book no matter how old, but you do have to have bookstore distribution in place. That doesn't mean your book is in the stores now, but you have to have access to the stores.

If you believe that your book deserves to be on the New York Times bestseller list, then you need to hear this teleseminar. More info at:
