More lessons from the movies:
One of my all-time favorite movies is “Gone Girl”.
And, the main reason why is, the Villain. Amy Dunne is a magnificently created and brilliantly written character. I like her so much, and her Villainous ways, I write about her in great detail in the upcoming sequel to my Villains book.
But, there’s another reason I like the movie, too.
An email-esque reason.
It has to do with the way the movie was received by women in particular.
When the movie came out, it was a thing where a lot of chicks did NOT want their dates to take them to see the movie. And, in some cases, from what I read on reddit and other places… even threatened to call off the date if they did take them. I know of one chick (of the militant feminist variety, my favorite kind…) who literally cried during the “big reveal” part about Amy Dunne and her diabolical machinations.
She just couldn’t handle it, unfortunately.
And, neither could a lot of others, from what I hear tell.
And the reason the movie got this reaction is because of the secret storytelling method I talk about in the November “Email Players” issue, I talked about earlier today, and last week in these diabolical daily emails.
A secret I have not seen anyone in copywriting talk about.
(Much less teach.)
And you know what else?
Despite this reactoin (and, I would say, because of it…), “Gone Girl” went on to do almost $400 million at the box office, on a $61 million budget.
Not too shabby.
And I talk about this method in exquisite detail in the November “Email Players” issue.

And, even more importantly, subscribed by the looming deadline tomorrow.
