The author presents their unique set of successful diet rules, their exercise program, their perspective, their testimonials and their credentials. They use original, different information for the same results.

6. Inspire a life full of adventure and opportunities. Inspire people to do something good. Weave inspiring stories into your book and sell more.

7. Entertain your audience with drama, humor or fun. Enrich the lives of your customers. Do you have a talent to make people laugh? Use it in your book. Provide a little oasis of escape for your readers. People love it when you entertain them.

Intertwine funny stories into your non-fiction manuscript. Entertain them, make them laugh; they'll love you for it. Best of all, they will have fun telling all their friends about your funny book.

8. Give a greater understanding of life. Have you been gifted with a deep understanding of life? Put small excerpts of your understanding throughout your book. Sprinkle your quotes along with other famous philosophers or world thinkers within your book.

9. Elevate your name to fame. Write a book filled with success experiences that motivate your audience to do more, give more or share more. Share your experiences to motivate your audience.
