FINALLY A PROVEN & LEGITIMATE SYSTEM TO HELP AUTHORS WRITE BETTER BOOKS FASTER, BOOST SALES, AND BUILD A RAVING READERSHIP – WITHOUT BURNING OUT
INTRODUCING STORY ENGINES – YOUR BESTSELLER BLUEPRINT
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
Have you ever thought to yourself, -How does that author sell so many books? Mine are just as good! or -What makes that book so special? or -How does that author find enough hours in the day? I know I have. I didn’t start out a New York Times bestseller, I assure you.
I struggled to write even one full-length book a year when I started out, needing multiple drafts on each one to get the story right – rather than using that time to produce additional manuscripts and building my audience – meaning I missed out on that extra income and exposure.
But after a couple of years of writing and publishing books, and still not having anywhere near the sales I needed to be able to make a living – never mind a comfortable one – with my work, I knew I had to do something. I saw other authors’ books performing significantly ahead of mine, and I thought to myself: -I know my books are at least as good as these – why am I struggling so much?
My reviews, when I got them, were good. People genuinely liked my work, but it took me too long to produce it at the quality level I desired (and the work deserved!) I needed to do something, but I didn’t know what. I was so frustrated.
So I decided to make a change. And Story Engines was born.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY
I spent months learning to change my approach – going through a -mad scientist phase to find out what works. Rather than focusing on the mechanics of the process, I looked at the -whys behind it.
In other words: why did I like that particular novel or that specific movie? What was it about that story that drew me in and kept me entertained, often for hours at a time?
Then, once I knew the answers to those questions, I developed a system to incorporate those elements and details into my own work – as efficiently as possible.
Once I had a plan and a process to do that, I set out to make sure it was replicable. I didn’t want to do it just once – I didn’t want to be a one-hit wonder.
What I wanted was a system I could use every time I sat down to start a new project, ensuring my success long before the book was ready for my readers.
HERE’S WHAT I DISCOVERED
Once I learned to focus on the right things (and ignore everything else) my entire writing career changed.
I went from writing a single novel a year to writing four, sometimes five or six full-length projects.
I went from working with one publisher to working with 4 in the U.S. alone, never mind the foreign translations sales that suddenly started coming my way.
A few short months later, I quit my day job in the information technology industry to become a full-time author.
Ten years later, I have more than 38 novels in my name from multiple publishers around the world, on top of an internationally successful series that I independently self-published myself.
Bottom line: once I learned what I’m going to show you inside Story Engines, I was able to spend all day doing what I love, with the people I love.
If you could do the same, what would that mean for you?
THE STORY ENGINES SYSTEM
It doesn’t matter whether you write thrillers, mysyteries, romance, science-fiction, horror, fantasy, LGBT novels, or paranormal westerns about an evil unicorn named Brutus, narrative non-fiction, or anything else you can think of – this system works.
It works because you are finally able to do justice to the story you are trying to tell, which in turn attracts the type of readers that will devour your work, time and time again, delivering the sales you need to build a lasting career.
The best part? It isn’t a crazy complicated system that takes months to master. All you need are seven key elements arranged in the right order and a willingness to implement what I’ll show you.
In short, you will finally have a way to produce stories that you can be proud of in less time than you’ve ever needed before, without all the wasted rewrites and hours upon hours of editing.
And you can do it again and again and again
I’ve developed a system you can use that works – regardless of the types or genres of books you write.
STORY ENGINES: HERE’S HOW IT BREAKS DOWN
The 7 Key Elements of Blockbuster Storytelling
Every good story – from the wildest sci-fi romps to the grittiest crime dramas, steamiest romances, and most exciting adventures – is made up of 7 key elements: 4 distinct phases and 3 game-changing moments.
When you implement the Story Engines system, you’ll see just how easy it is to use this blueprint to come up with new ideas quickly, turn those ideas into compelling narratives, and structure, plan, plot and write your books in record time.
And, because you’ve put the Story Engines system in place, your drafts will be better – requiring less work – and, more importantly, your stories will connect with readers on a deep emotional level.
All of which means you’ll write faster, more effectively, with less stress, and have readers begging you for more. And when you put our marketing systems in place, you’ll find new readers coming to you daily – meaning more exposure and sales for you.
HOW DOES STORY ENGINES GET RESULTS?
Do you ever wish there were more hours in the day for your writing? Do you spend too much time writing and rewriting and rewriting again just to find the heart of your story? Do you find yourself getting partway through a draft only to abandon it in the middle, uncertain of where you are going or just what to write next? After you’ve finished your book, do you think to yourself, -What do I do next?
I know I did. At least, until I figured out the power of a story told in just the right fashion. Once I did, my production exploded – without increasing the amount of time I spent on projects – and readers were devouring my books in droves. Since then, I haven’t looked back.
And guess what? I’m going to show you exactly how you can do the same. No -fluffy bunny thinking here, only proven, ethical, and easy-to-replicate techniques that will allow you to write better stories faster- putting you in direct control of your success.
Nick and I will also show you proven and ethical marketing systems to find thousands of new readers – helping you market and sell your work without resorting to -scammy tactics or spending all your time on social media.

BONUS TWO: THE THREE STEP FORMULA TO GROW YOUR READERSHIP AND SALES
Let’s face it – even the best books in the world won’t find success unless there is an audience ready and waiting to read it.
So many authors confuse -marketing hacks like trying to scam the Amazon algorithms – or -busy for the sake of busy approaches like building a Twitter following and hanging out on social media – with REAL marketing.
Effective marketing means only three things: Finding readers, getting readers to stick around, and learning how to -sell to readers without being -sleazy.
I’ve developed a three-step formula to take the stress out of marketing your books. It’s the exact process I – and thousands of my students – have used to attract tens of thousands of loyal, repeat readers and sell hundreds of thousands of books.
In this bonus session I’ll break down this formula for you, and show you the only three marketing activities you need to worry about – meaning better results for you, with less time spent going crazy on social media or spending $$$ on ads.
BONUS THREE: YOUR NETWORKING & SUPPORT COMMUNITY
The most effective studies are undertaken as part of a group – so we’ve got you covered with lifetime access to the customers-only Facebook group, where hundreds of other authors are there to help you succeed.
The 10k Readers team, as well as Joe and I are active on the group every day – so you’ll get the help and support you need to overcome your biggest hurdles, increase your effectiveness, and smash through your writing goals.
This group is the perfect place to find an accountability partner, a -manuscript swap partner, and a forum for you to discuss ideas, celebrate wins, and take your networking to a whole new level.
We don’t believe anyone should be in this alone – and we know from extensive testing that active members of our community get disproporationate results.
