Unexpectedly Becoming a Bestselling Author


Lisa Cherry Beaumont Bestselling Author of Life Purpose Alchemy Discover what fulfils you and do what you love for a living

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to wake up and discover that your book is a bestseller? Well, that’s exactly what happened to me in April…

I was on my weekly Skype call with my book accountability partner, Chuck Rockroad, Author of Number 1 Bestselling book Play Like a Cat. (affiliate link) (He makes sure my marketing is on track, and I make sure he gets on with writing his second bestseller!)

“How’s your book doing this week?” he enquired. “Um, I dunno,” I took a sip of my coffee, “Let’s go have a look.”

We each headed over to Amazon to check the stats. To be perfectly truthful, I had absolutely no idea what I was looking for. Chuck pulled up the sales ranking on his computer.

A smile spread over his face. “Congratulations,” he told me, “You’re a bestseller!”

I looked at him blankly for a moment. “What?”

“Your book’s a bestseller. In three categories, in fact.”

I closed my mouth and put my hand over it, like that would somehow help me to process the news.

Want to hear the rest of the story and, more importantly, how I did it?

It’s all in my interview on the Successful Author Podcast. In the episode I reveal:

  • My secret to getting the writing done
  • How I got the word out about my book and made it a bestseller
  • How I’m capitalizing on my new bestseller status
  • One great exercise to get unstuck while writing
  • Whether you really need a writing routine or not.

Head over here to listen to this fun yet very informative interview – I warn you, there’s a lot of laughing and some raw truths!

To be clear with you, I’m not a “book coach”, I’m a Careers & Interview Coach. I wrote this book because I wanted to get my 6-step system Life Purpose Alchemy: Discover what fulfils you and do what you love for a living out to as many people as possible.

The more people who are doing work that they love, the happier and more harmonious the world will be. If you dream of doing work that lights you up inside, but you’re not sure what that would be, you can buy the book on Amazon right here.
