Would you like to land a book deal?
With this one-two punch from industry insiders Jen Worick and Kerry Colburn of The Business of Books, you’ll be ready to land a traditional publishing contract no matter your genre.
Why join this class?
- You have a brilliant book idea, but don't know where to start.
- You've tried self-publishing and now you'd like to try traditional publishing.
- You've been shopping a book proposal around with no luck and don't know what you're doing wrong.
- You want to score a book deal!
You’ve got a book idea, but how do you get it out of your head—and onto the shelves? We’ll show you how to hone your idea, assess the competition, bulk up your author bio, choose the right sample text, strategically research publishers and agents, and develop a complete proposal, giving you all the tools you need to create a savvy, on-point submission.
Class 2: Learn What Every Publisher Wants You to Know
Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall during acquisitions meetings with publishers and agents, so you could find out what they really want—and don’t want? We’ll cover the proposal components that are most crucial to landing a publishing deal, rookie mistakes to avoid during the submission process, the aspects of an author platform that matter most, and how to fine-tune your proposal to address today’s publishing climate.
Class dates: All classes are pre-recorded. You'll be able to move along at your own pace, plus ask the instructors questions via email.
This 2 week class consists of 2 live webinars. Each will be recorded, so if you can’t make the live session, you can watch the recording at a time that works for you. All registrants will have access to the recordings for at least one year following the class. Plus, you will have direct email access to Jen & Kerry if you have questions.
