The Steps to Becoming a Best-Selling Author

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a best-selling author? While it’s certainly not an easy task, it is possible. With the right strategy and dedication, you can achieve your dream of writing a successful book that makes its way onto the shelves of bookstores everywhere. Let’s look at how you can become a best-selling author.

Start Small

Before you start writing your magnum opus, take some time to practice writing smaller pieces such as articles or blog posts. This will help you hone your writing skills and get used to putting words on paper (or computer). You should also read books in your chosen genre to get an idea of what kind of content people are interested in reading. Finally, don’t forget to network! Joining writers’ groups or attending conferences like Book Expo America can be great ways to make connections in the publishing world and learn about potential publishing opportunities for your work.

Develop Your Ideas

Once you have some experience and feel comfortable with your writing style, it’s time to work on developing an idea for your book. First, brainstorm ideas and write down any thoughts that come into your head—no matter how wild they may seem! Next, note which ideas excite you the most—these are usually the ones worth exploring further. Then, create an outline for your book so that the structure has some cohesiveness when you start writing.

Write and Edit

 Now comes the hard part – sitting down and writing! Set aside dedicated times to write each day to make progress consistent and manageable. It may be helpful to set goals for yourself each day so that you stay motivated and on task (e.g., “I will write 1,000 words today”). Once you have finished writing all or most of your book, it is essential to go back through it with a fine-tooth comb – editing any mistakes or typos as well as ensuring that everything flows logically from one section to another. This step is essential if you want readers to take your work seriously!


Writing a best-selling novel takes hard work and dedication, but it is possible with enough effort and determination. Start by honing your craft with smaller pieces before taking on larger projects like books; then develop an idea that excites you; finally, write out what comes into your mind until everything flows together nicely before doing one last edit pass before sending off query letters or submitting online. Taking these steps will help ensure that you have put forth every effort into creating something unique – something worthy of being called a bestseller!
