    During my research I discovered that emotion will always beat logic in sales, this led me to read lots of phycology books, specifically focusing on emotional triggers. That?s all well and good but I can?t seem to twist these triggers in my writing style. Do you guys know of any books that I may get that gives you some insight into this form of writing?

    Here are a few good links that I have read recently,
    which will help you with getting started;
    then you will be able to add your twist to it,
    but don't focus too much on the emotional triggers,
    in my opinion, the content and CONTEXT is also a primary factor to successful writing.
    I hope these help. Cheers :)

    Thnx for the guides, this should keep me busy for the weekend, I just saw some books at the university campus - even though its political science books focusing on the art of persuasion, hell politicians are some of the best spin doctors in the world so it would be nice to get a insight into their field also

    Practice makes a man perfect. From your thread I knew that, you already research enough and read many kind of books for improving your writing skill. I think you have enough knowledge in writing article or writing e-book, you just need practice again again.

    Best of luck Saffa. I hope you will write some good books and we will read with interest from up to bottom.
