Crack The Code To A Thriving Writing Career--Just Like I Did!

My Story...

Dear Writer Friend,

I'd love to help YOU learn to write, publish, and market your books like I do, and am thrilled you're here! 

For those who already know me...how's it going? Good to see you again!

For those who don't...Hi! My name's Michaelbrent Collings, and like a lot of people, I wanted to be a writer when I "grew up." But (also like a lot of people), I didn't want to be a poor, starving artist. So I did the next-worst thing: I became a lawyer. (Eek!)

I graduated from a top law school, then became a partner at a respected firm in record time. I wrote at night and on the weekends, telling everyone not to worry: it was just a hobby.

Then my wife got sick.

Nearly overnight, I found myself working part-time, taking care of her the rest: not a recipe for success in the law biz. Soon, the inevitable occurred as I was invited by the other partners to leave the firm. We lost our home, we were on food assistance...the world was crumbling around us.

I tried to find another "grown-up job." I really did. But nothing worked, so I turned to what I'd always done. I began to write--this time like my life depended on it. Because it did.

There were a lot of ups and downs, a lot of tragedies and triumphs, but over the next decade-plus I managed to turn a nightmare situation into a dream career:

- international bestseller (dozens of countries on four continents!)...
- Top 100 Overall Bestseller on Kindle, iBooks, Nook, and others...
- multiple Dragon Award and Bram Stoker Award finalist...
- produced screenwriter and WGA member...
- and a whole lot more.

And now I want to show YOU how I did it!

If you don't like what you see, you can cancel in seven days or less for a full refund...and I promise not to come after you like the mafia, or a cult, or that gym membership it took me a year to get out of (sheesh!). But I'm betting you'll stick around. Because if you're here it means you want to find out as much as you can, and make a life out of this crazy dream of ours.

The tools are ready. Your best story awaits.

Let's get started!

Cheers,

Cheers,

Frequently Asked Questions 🤔

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML

As long as you want.



You can either go month by month (which is inexpensive, and you get out whenever you want), or year by year (and save HUNDREDS), or grab a lifetime membership (the best deal of all). As long as you're subscribed, you have access.

Lifetime access is one of the biggest ways we can say "thank you" to our biggest supporters--and hundreds have already signed up for that access, which means they'll get not only the courses already available (on formatting, writing, advertising, and more), but EVERY COURSE that comes along after that, and EVERY update we ever make.

But no matter what, as long as you're a subscriber, you get FULL ACCESS to all the learning tools (handouts, exercises, etc.) that go along with the courses, as well as EXCLUSIVE OFFERS AND DISCOUNTS on author tools. And your sign-up gifts are yours forever.

YouTube is great...

YouTube is great...it's a fantastic resource that I often turn to when I don't know how to do something, and it's got more free info about The Universe And Whatnot than anyone could possibly watch in a single lifetime.

And that's the problem: how do you find the RIGHT information? Especially given that a lot of the advice from "experts" is sketchy--often coming from some author who, when you check out their Amazon page, has managed to rack up all of six reviews and even fewer sales.

And the biggest question you should ask is:

"How much is my time worth??"

Bestseller Life's courses will save you months or even YEARS of (very frustrating) time searching for answers, going down dead-ends, and wasting tons of money. And even if you FIND the answers, it's tough finding them created in a way that's clear, focused, and interesting.

For some people, saving years of time and thousands of dollars in wasted expenditure is well worth a low up-front cost. But if that's not you, then please do stick to the self-service method, and I sincerely wish you the best!

Depends on you and your goals

That depends totally on you: on where you are in your career, on your goals, and on how much you're willing to invest (or sometimes bet) on your career.

I definitely recommend that every writer invests in a subscription to Word, and there are a few other programs that are extremely helpful. That said, I provide coupon codes for some of the programs I recommend, and try to always let you know about "freebie" alternatives as much as I can. And at a certain point, you're going to have to invest in things like advertising if you want to make any kind of splash in the ocean of self-published work.

Again, it's up to you. But I'm going to try and make sure that whatever you spend is the least amount possible, and gets you the biggest return on investment.

Everyone.

Bestseller Life is designed, first and foremost for Serious Authors: folks who have practiced and honed their writing to a professional level and now need help figuring out how to get that great work NOTICED.

That said, anyone who knows basic spelling will be able to find tools, tips, and tricks for writing faster, writing better, and writing with more purpose and pleasure.

Then it’s easy: just turn off the subscription.

Bestseller Life comes with a 7-Day Satisfaction Guarantee/trial period. If you are not fully satisfied with your investment, just cancel your membership within 7 days and keep the free gifts!

Even More Answers (to Even More Questions)  😀

How long will I have access to the courses? ⌛

As long as the Bestseller Life courses are available to anyone, they'll be available to you as a subscriber. If you sign up for monthly or yearly access, then you've got that time to study, plan, learn. If you feel like you've got it all, then cancel (though Bestseller Life is ALWAYS updating with new, up-to-the-minute info) as well as EXCLUSIVE OFFERS AND DISCOUNTS on author tools.
And if you get Lifetime Access? That means you'll get not only the courses already available (on formatting, writing, advertising, and more), but EVERY COURSE that comes along after that, and EVERY update we ever make on Bestseller Life, FOREVER.

How fast do I have to take each course?⌚

There's no time limit, other than how long YOU decide to subscribe. We definitely recommend you try to finish them before you're dead, because it's hard to study in a coffin (the Internet is SOOOO spotty in the Afterlife), but beyond that...sky's the limit!

Can't I just learn all this for free on YouTube or something?🧑🏼‍🎓

YouTube is great...it's a fantastic resource that I often turn to when I don't know how to do something, and it's got more free info about The Universe And Whatnot than anyone could possibly watch in a single lifetime.

And that's the problem: how do you find the RIGHT information? Especially given that a lot of the advice from "experts" is sketchy--often coming from some author who, when you check out their Amazon page, has managed to rack up all of six reviews and even fewer sales.

For some people, saving years of time and thousands of dollars in wasted expenditure is well worth a comparatively small up-front cost. But if that's not you, then please do stick to the self-service method, and I sincerely wish you the best!

What are the common expenditures involved in self-publishing?💸

That depends totally on you: on where you are in your career, on your goals, and on how much you're willing to invest (or sometimes bet) on your career.

I definitely recommend that every writer invests in a subscription to Word, a CRM, and an ebook formatter--and there are a few other programs that are extremely helpful. That said, I provide coupon codes for some of the programs I recommend, and try to always let you know about "freebie" alternatives as much as I can. And at a certain point, you're going to have to invest in things like advertising if you want to make any kind of splash in the ocean of self-published work.

Again, it's up to you. My job is to help ensure that whatever you spend is the least amount possible, and gets you the biggest return on your investment.
