What? You’re still reading?
You’ve just been victimized by the Law of Reverse Reaction. This law comes into play whenever someone tells you not to do something and you’re compelled to do it anyway. When someone says “Don’t turn around,” what do you do?
You turn around. You can’t help yourself. We’re all powerless over the Law of Reverse Reaction.
Why is this? As a hypnotherapist, I was taught that it’s because the subconscious mind doesn’t hear negatives like don’t or no. Hmm… I’m NOT so sure of that. In fact, I think it’s just the opposite.
I believe the reason we are subject to the Law of Reverse Reaction–and the reason you read this article despite my warning–is because we’re curious. As much as we fear it, some of us are also drawn to the unknown.
Does it work that way with books too? Do you feel compelled to read books that get poor reviews? I don’t. Neither do most people I know. That’s why it’s so important to write a good book that garners good reviews.
My soon-to-be-released book Writer to Writer Success Mastery is the second in the Writer to Writer series. And just so I wouldn’t have to plaster WARNING! DON’T READ THIS BOOK on the cover to get people to read it, I made sure it was a good book. That way people will want to read it and share it with their friends. Hopefully, I’ll get a few good reviews out of it, too.
Writer to Writer Success Mastery is a compilation of articles written for writers, by writers. Each is an industry professional. The tips and advice they share will guide you from book proposal to manuscript to publishing.
It’s like finding a treasure map!
So, DON’T BUY IT.
Okay, now that you’ve ordered it, grab a shovel and start digging. The treasure is within you.

“I registered for a writing class never thinking that decision would change my life forever. I met the most wonderful person – the teacher – Judith Cassis. She made it so easy even for someone who was not the best in punctuation. I learned so much but didn’t realize how much I had learned until I published my first book of suspense stories, then two children’s books.
Judith always encouraged, she can inspire you when you just draw a blank. Judith had changed my life and opened new paths for me to follow.”
