Writing Secrets of the World's Most Prolific Authors

I just came out with a new book. Unlike my usual novels, this one is a book on writing craft. Called Writing Secrets of the World's Most Prolific Authors, it is exactly what it says on the tin. I've studied the habits of authors who have written hundreds of novels to look for the secrets to their long-term productivity. I hope it helps some writers out there. It's certainly helped me! You can get it on Amazon, and Smashwords, and soon all other ebook outlets, as well as in print. The blurb is below.

What does it take to write 100 books? What about 500? Or 1,000?
That may sound like an impossibly high number, but it isn’t. Some of the world’s most successful authors wrote hundreds of books over the course of highly lucrative careers. Isaac Asimov wrote more than 300 books. Enid Blyton wrote more than 800. Legendary Western writer Lauren Bosworth Paine wrote close to 1,000.
Some wrote even more.
This book examines the techniques and daily habits of more than a dozen of these remarkable writers to show how anyone with the right mindset can massively increase their word count without sacrificing quality. Learn the secrets of working on several projects simultaneously, of reducing the time needed for each book, and how to build the work ethic you need to become more prolific than you ever thought possible.
