Does your book manuscript have BORING stamped on it? If so, I have good news for you! You don’t have to settle for a boring book. I can assure you if it’s boring to you, it will most likely be boring to your reader.

My tip for today ‘Put the Power of Stories Into Your Book’ shows you how to stamp INTERESTING on your manuscript instead. Implementing this tip alone can put your book at the top of your targeted seller’s list.

I’ve discovered over the years, there are two main reasons people want to read a non-fiction book. They read to be educated about a certain topic and they read to be entertained. Yes, I did say entertained. People still want to be entertained, even if it’s a non-fiction book.

There are many ways to do that but one powerful way to educate and entertain your reader is to put stories into your book. A simple way to get started is to weave your personal story related to your book’s topic into your introduction.

Furthermore, you can amp up the interest level for your book by sprinkling stories into each chapter, sidebar, illustrations and examples to name a few places. Even your case studies can become your customer success stories. You might consider summing up your chapter with a short related story to prove a point or confirm what you’ve been explaining within the chapter.

However you decide to weave stories into your book, you will accomplish three simple things when you do:

1. Create a stronger connection with your audience. Sprinkling stories will create a little oasis where you can make friends with your readers. Your friends will begin to refer you and your helpful book. Then they refer it to their friends and their friends refer it to their friends and so on. Before you know it your book has gone viral.

2. Write compelling chapters. Include stories and your book’s chapters become interesting and entertaining to your readers. Since your chapters are now compelling, your readers won’t be able to put your book down until they have read the entire book.

3. Create a journey. With stories, you create a journey for your readers. People love to go on a journey. We all love journeys. With stories included, your non-fiction book becomes an educational journey that your readers will love to travel.

Start today! If you don’t include some stories, you may end up with a manuscript stamped BORING. Join the inner circle of successful authors and begin thinking about how you can spice up your manuscript’s copy with stories. As always, keep it in balance. Don’t over do it; sprinkle your stories strategically throughout your book. Surprise your reader. Create a little magical moment then dive right back in with your teaching or the explanations of your topic. I’m looking forward to seeing your successful story filled non-fiction book in print
