Discourse Analysis for Self-Published Authors

As a self-published author, creating a writing style that resonates with your target audience is key to your book’s success.

By performing a discourse analysis on “bestselling books” within your niche or genre, you can gain valuable insights into what makes these books successful…

… and use this knowledge to create your own unique and successful writing style.

Here are 3 key benefits of discourse analysis:

1. Understand your target market

Performing a discourse analysis on successful books allows you to identify the language, syntax, and dialogue that resonates with readers in your target market.

This knowledge can help you tailor your writing better to meet the needs and interests of your readers, making your book engaging.

2. Learn from successful writing styles

Bestselling books often have a distinct writing style that contributes to their success.

By analyzing the writing style of these books, you can identify the elements that make them successful and apply them to your own writing.

For example, if successful books within your niche often use colloquial language or employ humour to engage readers, you may want to consider incorporating these elements into your own writing to make your book more compelling and engaging.

3. Create a unique writing style

Performing a discourse analysis can help you identify common writing styles used in bestselling books within your niche.

By understanding these commonalities, you can differentiate your own writing style by exploring new ways to use language, syntax, and dialogue — not extensively covered by your competitors.

This can help your book stand out in a crowded market and appeal to readers looking for something new and unique.
