Ever pondered the idea of starting a cult? It requires more calculation than you might think, as Rebecca Wait reveals in this very helpful video.

After just five simple steps you could be the leader of your very own band of worshippers. What – or who – they worship is up to you. It's worth remembering that most cult leaders meet their downfall eventually, so if you prove the rule wrong then be sure to let us know.


Ok, so these tips aren't tried and tested in the real world, but Rebecca has written a brilliant novel about a cult so she knows a thing or two about them. The book is called The Followers and it's out now in Paperback, and as an Ebook and Audiobook.
