  • Hey, it's Jersey Marie and I'm back for another episode of MarieTV.

  • You know, writer Joseph Epstein wrote in The New York Times that up to 81% of people feel

  • they got a book in them and that they should write it.

  • And I got to say, I think Mr. Epstein is on the money, because I know many of you have

  • either written a book, you're writing a book now, or you plan to write a book.

  • Now, look, I'm no expert.

  • But I've helped Marie with her last two books, and I got to say we learned a couple of things

  • this last time around, things we think you should know, things we don't see anybody else

  • talking about.

  • So if you want to write a book now or in the future, here are three important phrases every

  • modern author needs to know.

  • Get out your pen and paper, kids, and let's do this.

  • Phrase number one, primary source.

  • Can you say that with me?

  • Primary source.

  • Excellent.

  • Now, this one's especially important if you want to sprinkle in some inspirational quotes

  • into your book to help prove or expand your points.

  • A primary source is a rock-solid, airtight origin point for a fact or a quote.

  • It means you can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that whoever you say said something

  • actually said something.

  • So, regular Marie, right?

  • She loves these inspirational quotes.

  • She's got more than like six dozen in this new book, but nobody ever told her about the

  • importance of finding primary sources until she was practically done with our manuscript.

  • Then when she started looking for them, she found out that a very high percentage of inspirational

  • quotes are actually completely misattributed, meaning there's no primary source.

  • Holy cannoli.

  • Madonna mi.

  • So many days, so many nights, she wanted to pull this gorgeous hair right out of her head

  • trying to find primary sources for all the damn quotes in the book.

  • Let me give you an example.

  • To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”

  • Aristotle.

  • Wrong.

  • According to the quote investigator, Aristotle never fricking said that.

  • In fact, they think it's some guy named Elbert Hubbard.

  • Here's another one that'll blow your freaking mind.

  • The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different

  • results.”

  • Albert Einstein.

  • Wrong again.

  • Einstein never freaking said that.

  • Right now, our best bet is that it's from Narcotics Anonymous.

  • I mean, who knew?

  • Drugs maybe do make you smart.

  • Bottom line, I need you to be meticulous with your work.

  • Give yourself some time and some space to do all that research and find those primary

  • sources, because I promise you everything you think you know about famous quotes, it

  • ain't so.

  • And if you want a real deal quote for your next book, here's one for you, baby.

  • Don't pull quotes off the internet, because we can't confirm anyone ever said anything.

  • Jersey Marie.

  • I said that?

  • That's some good shit, huh?

  • Permission to quote granted.

  • Phrase number two, problematic.

  • Okay, so that's not really a phrase.

  • It's a word, but I got to tell you the word itself is actually very problematic and that's

  • meta, but we ain't going there.

  • I want to get right to the point.

  • In her new book, regular Marie was telling this story where there was this guy.

  • And honestly, he was being a total asshole, so she called him a douchebag, and her copy

  • editor flagged it and said, "You know what?

  • This could be problematic."

  • Our first reaction was like, "What are you talking about?

  • What do you mean?

  • He's a douchebag.

  • What exactly is the problem here?"

  • But then we did some digging.

  • Turns out there's a whole other can of controversy around the word douche that we had no idea

  • even existed.

  • Look, we grew up in Jersey in the '80s.

  • If someone was a douche, you called them a douche, or maybe you said he was douchetastic

  • or a douche biscuit or he's a douche canoe.

  • But look, culture has shifted, right?

  • Now, some people think it's a sexist word.

  • Other people, they fricking love it.

  • They want to reclaim that word.

  • I was like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • We're just trying to tell a simple story here.

  • We're not trying to get into this whole douche debate debacle."

  • So, we said to ourselves, "Hey, is there another word that's not going to stir up this much

  • of a (beep) storm?"

  • And wouldn't you know it?

  • There was.

  • Rather than calling that guy a douche, we called them a dickwad.

  • So, here's the lesson, people.

  • When you write your book, if something gets flagged that's problematic, don't get defensive.

  • Get happy.

  • It's a learning opportunity.

  • You get to grow and you get to come up with something even better to say, something that's

  • more accurate, something that's not going to distract people from your main message.

  • And who knows?

  • Maybe you too can graduate from douchebag to dickwad.

  • Dream big, my friends.

  • Phrase number three, pre-orders.

  • You know, everybody thinks you write a book, you get a publisher and then bam.

  • Just like magic, those books are flying off the shelves at Barnes & Noble like nona slices

  • fly out of Bleecker Street Pizza.

  • But I got to tell you, it don't happen like that.

  • The third and most important phrase you need to learn is pre-orders.

  • Look, if you want your book to be a big success, you can't just wait around for your publisher

  • start making things happen.

  • You can't just take a nap until the book comes out.

  • No, no, no, no, no.

  • You got to start getting people hyped.

  • You got to inspire them to buy your book way before it ever hits the shelves.

  • And here's the why behind that.

  • Because when you get a nice amount of pre-orders, it's like having a nice long line around the

  • club, right?

  • It's an indicator to the booksellers and to the press, "Hey, this book could actually

  • be something.

  • Maybe we should put it on that nice table out in the front of the store."

  • So, look, I'm going to practice what I'm preaching right now, all right?

  • If you haven't already ordered this here book, Everything is Figureoutable, you need to do

  • it right now.

  • And please, for everything, save your receipts.

  • Because in October, regular Marie, she's doing this incredible online coaching experience

  • designed to help you rewire that big, beautiful brain of yours for success in every damn part

  • of your life.

  • How you like that?

  • wish we knew before we started writing this here book.
