Dear Reader:

It was almost embarrassing.

I'd been writing since 1982 -- and by 2008, I had published over 70 books with major NYC publishing houses.

Yet not one of my books had made any of the best-seller lists ... at any time.

Not one!

It's not that my books don't sell.

My first book, published over a quarter of a century ago, is still in print today and sells thousands of copies every year.

A number of my books have sold more than 100,000 copies each - and in total, my books combined have sold well over a million copies.

To make the best-seller lists, however, you have to sell a large number of books in a compressed period of time.

But I hadn't done it yet, and in the summer of 2008, I decided it was time for me to join the ranks of best-selling authors.

Now, let me ask you a question....

Have you ever gotten e-mails from online promoters asking you to buy a book on a certain date, and offering you a massive amount of bribes and free bonus reports if you do?

Those e-mails are a part of the author's carefully orchestrated marketing campaign to make that book a best-seller!

Using this same proven formula, I helped my latest book climb to the #2 spot on the Amazon.com nonfiction best-seller list ... #1 in business and investing ... and #9 overall.

I say "proven" because I didn't invent the formula. Authors and online marketers have been using it for years - legally and ethically - to exponentially accelerate the sales of their books on Amazon.

I simply applied their formula, added a few twists of my own, and by October of last year, had the first - but, I assure you, not the last - best-seller of my multi-decade writing career.

Now, I want to show you how to make your book an instant Amazon best-seller, if you will let me.

(Haven't written a book or gotten it published yet? I'll show you how to do that too. No charge. See my free gift offer in the P.S. below.)

Makes your book an instant Amazon best-seller!

Now, in my e-book, The Instant Amazon Best-Seller Formula, I share with you the battle-proven method that has helped so many authors and online marketers make their books an Amazon best-seller.

Act now and save $30

My friends in Internet marketing -- and my publishers -- may blow their stacks when they see that I've revealed the secret formula we all regularly use to make our books Amazon best-sellers.

But I don't care. It's a free country. Why should they get all the money and fame? I want your book to be a best-seller, too!

The list price of the Instant Amazon Best-Seller Formula is $59, and that's the price it will sell for when I announce it all over the Internet later this year.

It's really a modest fee to learn how to create instant best-sellers.

Apply the formula to make just one of your books a best-seller on Amazon - and you can easily pay back the cost of my guide 100X or more the very first time you use it.

But order now, and the Instant Amazon Best-Seller Formula is yours for only $29 - a $30 savings off the regular rate - less than I charge for just 5 minutes of my time.

And that's your investment only if your book actually makes the Amazon top 10 best-seller list.

If it doesn't, your cost is zero. Zilch. Nada. Nothing.

Use it risk-free for 90 days

That's right.

If after applying my proven formula, your book doesn't become a top 10 Amazon best-seller....

Or you are not 100% satisfied with the Instant Amazon Best-Seller Formula for any reason ... or for no reason at all ...

Just let me know within 90 days for a full and prompt refund of every penny you paid.

And whatever you decide, keep the e-book free with my compliments. That way, you risk nothing.

With the Instant Amazon Best-Seller Formula, you can raise your book's Amazon sales - whether it's currently ranked number one thousand or one million - to a top ten best-seller ... this year.
