    I always wanted to write a book. I wrote a number of ebooks before and even though some of them reached the word count of a proper book these were mainly instructional. Now I have enough money saved to take some time off to write a book and publish it.

    I was thinking about writing a book about my life as a marketeer. I've been doing this for 8 years now and I think I have quite a few interesting stories to share. I would write about how I first got into IM and how I got to where I am now, about the "scams" I pulled and the bad times I went through. How my offline life was changing and how I was perceived by my friends and family. It will contain some (Hopefully) interesting inside info about various ideas, deals and projects that never surfaced. It won't be as specific as... here is the script I used to hijack 20 million uniques back in 2004 but it will just outline the concept...

    How many of you knew that my parents caught me attempting to manufacture fake coins by melting big copper coins into smaller ones when I was like 9 lol

    Would this kind of book sell?

    Thanks for your feedback Hagiology. Yea, I was thinking about writing about a life of IMer rather than my achievements etc. because not that many people know what it's like but like you said more and more of them hear about making money online and almost everyone joked about viagra or penis enlargement in their inbox at some point so it might be interesting for them to find out where these actually come from.

    I think If I manage to relate both to IMers and regular people it may well be successful. At the end of the day I simply enjoy writing and even if things don't go as expected, it should be an interesting experience nevertheless.

    "This business has legs": How I Used Infomercial Marketing to Create the$100,000,000 ThighMaster Craze

    "The inside story of how Bieler started with no money, no product, and no experience, and somehow created a $100 million business selling the "Thighmaster" through infomercials. Far more entertaining and fun than any infomercial, and, in many ways, a mind-boggling book about how new industries are created in this modern world. Recommended."
