“You can’t make money writing books.”
“Authors are just starving artists.”
“Being a full-time writer is just a dream.”

I’ve heard all these statements before.
Honestly, I used to say many them myself.

Make no mistake. There is some truth in them.
Most authors never sell more than a few hundred books in their lifetime.

But is the problem the industry OR the author?

We all know books were meant to be read, not just written.
Yet this only happens when they’re written, published,
and marketed the right way.

You might be thinking, "Marketing? Ouch!" Or even "Yuck!"
See if you can relate. Have you ever thought…?

• “An author’s job is to write, not market.”
• “I don’t like people who self-promote.”
• “A good book should stand on its own."
• “I don’t have a marketing or publicity budget.”
• “I don’t know how to market my book.”

I used to say these as a way to justify my lack of success.
Then after my third traditionally published book that went nowhere, I said, "There has to be a secret I'm missing."

I wanted to go pro with my passion, but I knew the publishing
maze was kicking my tail. And with three kids and a wife I
wasn't about to leave my day job.

Then in 2010 I discovered a secret. I found out, there is a right way and a wrong way. With my next four books—both fiction and non-fiction—I turned each of them into 6-figure businesses. Shortly after, I started my dream job and I haven't looked back since.

My readers and clients noticed the results.
They asked me to share how I did it.

I wanted to help them, but in the beginning like any emerging entrepreneur I didn’t have much time to spare.

Eventually, I built a global business, an amazing team, and enough margin to help them. The next few years I taught over 100,000 authors how to write, publish, and market their books the right way too.

Now I’m sharing this model in a 6-figure author 5-day challenge. Over 10,000 authors have already accepted the challenge. If you’d like to take the challenge with us, we’d love to have you join us.

Here’s what you can expect:

1) You’ll receive a daily video for 5 days to help you in your writing career. We cover topics such as writing, publishing, and marketing.
2) Sprinkled in, you’ll also receive access to livestream Master Classes where I help you apply the content.
3) We also include a FREE bonus e-book, webinar, and private community to help you even further. You'll meet some real authors who implemented the model and are now earning 6 figures.
4) I show up in the private group everyday and answer questions for those people who need extra help.

All this is FREE too. Sure if you want to go deeper down the line you can, but that is completely optional.

If this resonates with you then hop on over. All the details are at this link: https://karyoberbrunner.com/5daychallenge
