In the most recent post in this series, Sell More Books: 5 Steps to Create a Mastermind to Increase Your Income as an Author, we talked about how to turn your book into a mastermind.

That gives them something they can see, imagine, and experience, which will inspire them to keep that book in their hands. And that’s exactly what we want to do with our fiction!
