Publisher's Summary

There are only, in my humble opinion, two kinds of readers: readers who love your books and readers who don’t know they love your books yet. But how do you reach those readers in the second category, no matter what kind of writer you are?

The answer to that question is...universal fantasy.

Universal fantasy is why my sales tripled when I “accidentally” wrote three books that landed in the Amazon Top 100.

Universal fantasy is why some authors get gobs of gushing reviews and some authors who write “way better” get crickets.

Universal fantasy is the answer to many of the questions you might have thought were unanswerable or simply up to luck, like:

  • Will this sell?
  • Why is that selling?
  • Why didn’t this sell?
  • Will readers like what I am writing?
  • Why do I love the TV shows/books/entertainments I do?
  • Why did I buy that thing I bought when I didn’t intend to buy it?

Be warned...once known, universal fantasy cannot be undiscovered. Leave this audiobook be if you’re truly satisfied with your current writing life.

But if you’re not afraid - if you’re ready to know the secret hidden inside all best-selling stories, open this gift and find out how to use universal fantasy to write and market books that sell to anyone.

Wonderfully unexpected

Having never heard of T Taylor before, my games programming/aspiring author friend recommended this book to me. As someone very interesting in both publishing and upping my game master/storytelling skills, I was surprised to find easy to understand, actionable, and unexpected content within. From bluntly stating fresh perspectives to clearly identifying what makes storytelling and reading fun, T Taylor knows exactly what she's talking about and I hope to put 7 Figure Fiction into practice.

Surprisingly more than expected

I bought this, then looked at reviews and debated on if I should bother reading and listening or just to outright return. Well, I decided to listen, after all, it's a very short book.

I skipped over some of the beginning parts because I hate that kind of fluff in any book. I want to get to the information. While there is still fluff in the later chapters, there's a good chunk of good information. I understand that these types of books will have fluff because the topics are rather short, but I'll never enjoy that. I do wish the information was presented a bit more clearly than it was, because the fluff had me tuning out and I'd miss bits and pieces I wanted to know and would have to go back to catch it.

At first, Taylor's explanation of what Universal Fantasy is was not clear. At. All. She defines it as "Universal Fantasy (she refers to it as UF throughout the book) is why readers feel things when they read my books—why they connect with and enjoy my books.”

Which... as others have said, isn't helpful at all.

Then she goes on to say that UFs are NOT tropes and then offers a list of tropes “road trip buddy adventure, second-chance romance, fish-out-of-water . . .” etc JUST IN CASE someone reading this book isn't 100% clear on it.

THAT was the part of most reviews that made me doubt this book. The ones saying that she was calling those tropes UFs.
I believe the ones who said as much DNF'd the book there, maybe having missed the quick bit right before that where she states, “Most experienced authors and readers are well-acquainted with tropes, but I’ll name a few, just in case.”

It wasn't until closer to the end of the book where I gained an understanding of what exactly she was talking about.
Though there is never a cut-and-dry definition that makes it click. But she gives enough examples of UFs to make it clear so you can understand.

Trope itself doesn't have a better definition than what she gives for UF, but more experienced readers and writers know a trope when it's listed because we've all seen and heard enough examples to "just know."

The best way I can explain them is like this:
Tropes are meant to be applied to a story.
Universal Fantasies are like a "trope" that's meant to be applied to _tropes,_ rather than to the story.
They are what makes a fun-to-read situation relatable to the reader. They are just as "mix-and-match-able" to tropes as tropes are to story ideas.

Must Read!

T. Taylor gives plenty of gems for taking your books to the next level. Her personality shines through in the narration. Dopamine, dopamine, dopamine! I will definitely apply some of this wisdom to my next book.
