Would you help me with a self publishing test?  Since “How do I earn in Ecuador” is the most asked question we receive, we are continually testing new ideas to help our readers learn how to earn though self publishing in Ecuador or wherever they are.  We are doing a new test now and hope you’ll help out. 

Our good friend, Bob Gandt, recently sent this note.

THE PRESIDENT’S PILOT just passed 90+ Amazon reviews… nearing the magic Century level which lifts a new book into rarified air. In case you wondered, yes, reader reviews have a huge effect on the Amazon ranking list. 
 So you’ve read the novel… and haven’t yet posted a review? Please don’t be shy.

You haven’t yet read THE PRESIDENT’S PILOT? Then waste not a minute more while the Kindle version is at the special price of $4.99. You won’t put it down, I promise.

 Looking forward to your comments. Big thanks to all. Bob

Order the President’s Pilot here $4.99

I agree if you read Bob’s book you will have a hard time stopping and I proposed to Bob that we try a test to see if passing that 100 review mark really made a difference. I’ll be adding a lesson based upon the results in our Self Publishing 303 course.

If you’ve read the novel… and haven’t yet posted a review. Please don’t be shy. (There’s a link below for those who already read it, so you can post a review.)

If not, please buy the book. Then please review it and please let me know. I’ll send you the self publishing lesson about the result free.

Bob’s writing niche is flying. He published his first story at age sixteen – the same year he first soloed an airplane. Since then he has logged something over 25,000 hours, written fourteen books and published countless articles.

Bob has written and published through the traditional publishing route as well as self published electronically. Hearing the stories of others like Bob help me (as well as you) better understand how many different ways there are to Write to Sell.

At age 20 he was at the time the youngest aviator in the U.S. Navy.

In 1965 he began his 26 career as a pilot for Pan American World Airways. His 1995 book, Skygods (Wm. Morrow & Co.), recounts the meteoric descent and crash of the once-great Pan Am.

His 1997 book Bogeys and Bandits (Viking Penguin) told of a training squadron at the same base where he had trained years before. This book led to a CBS series Pensacola: Wings Of Gold. Bob worked as writer and technical consultant for this twenty-two-episode series which starred James Brolin as the commander of a Marine F/A-18 training squadron.

Now Bob’s focus is on self publishing. As an author whose numerous books have been published for and sold through book stores… he now sees the bookstore path filled with dinosaurs.

Bob started with print but took a special step that every writer should know. This step has helped him add Ebooks to his stable of income producing systems. Print and Ebooks are all part of the publishing process… but Ebook makes self publishing easier than ever before.

Bob’s passion is flying and the military. His books reflect this. Learning and sharing your passion with like minded souls is just fun. There is no other way to say it. This is how life should be lived and self publishing lets you live it this way.

Here is a short video with Bob about how to write.

Your help in conducting this test is greatly appreciated. I know you’ll love reading the book. I hope you’ll enjoy sharing the information we learn from this research as well.

Hemingway’s Secret to Better Writing Saves You Up to $899

Our Writer’s Camps specialize in how to write to sell through self publishing.  This course goes way beyond logic and looks at how to think, write, earn with greater wisdom.

We help you learn ways to go the extra mile.

Was Ernest Hemingway’s secret to better writing in English or Spanish?  

hemingway

‪Hemingway with Friends at La Florida (“Floridita”), Havana, Cuba.‬

To get a Nobel Prize in literature… you have to be willing to go the extra mile (1).   In Hemingway’s case perhaps he went further… 104.91 miles to be exact from Key West to Havana.   There may have been many reasons why Hemingway liked Cuba but he already had access to them in Key West.  Why go the extra 104.91 miles to Cuba?

See Ernest Hemingway speaking Spanish below.

Perhaps Ernest Hemingway knew that speaking a second language makes you smarter.  Perhaps he realized that he could think and write better in English when one learns Spanish.   In 1939 he moved to Cuba and wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which  became a Book-of-the-Month Club choice.  The book sold half a million copies almost instantly, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and cemented Hemingway’s reputation as one of the great writers in the English language… at a time when he was speaking two languages.

You too can be be smarter, write better and incidentally… and save up to $899 in the process.

You might ask… “What the heck does Spanish have to do with writing and self publishing?”

Well… to start, being smarter means you write better and the fact is, you do gain greater intellect with Super Thinking.   Super Thinking tactics integrate brain waves so absorption, retention and recollection of  information improve… a lot.   Most important of all, Super Thinking helps you synthesize what you learn so you can connect dots and use the knowledge you gain to achieve your goals.

In short, Super Thinking makes you smarter.. a lot!

Super Thinking is not a gimmick nor a trick.At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system.  She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.  With her modified system, you discover how to think more powerfully in just three days…and experience the wonders of superlearning.

When I figured this out, my first thought was… “Why not help readers learn writing  AND Spanish?”  There and then was a two for one deal.

Enroll for our Writer’s Camp and you gain a full scholarship to one of our Super Thinking + Spanish course or vice versa.  You save $699 (single) to $899 (couple).

Still you ask… “Why Spanish for writing and self publishing?”

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language.  Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.  Speaking Spanish can be helpful in innumerable ways just from this fact.

There is more.  Learning a second language makes you smarter and healthier.

The Telegraph article (linked below) entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism says (bolds are mine):  Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English, says Anne Merritt.

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.

You can read the entire article at the link below but to sum it up it shows seven ways that learning a second language improves your intellect and health:

* You build multitasking skills

* You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia

* Your memory improves

* You become more perceptive

* You become smarter

* Your decision-making skills improve

* You improve your English

A better command of English… used by a smarter, more perceptive person who can remember details and multi task, creates a better writer.

With this. I rest Hemingway’s case.
