First flush of love finally blossoms into full-fledged, lasting love that ends with accepting a proposal. Like an on-the-knee marriage proposal, an accepted book proposal leads to long relationships, trusted relationships, and even better, profit for both parties.
Terry Whalin–an acquisitions editor for Morgan-James Publishing–has the scoop on how to write a winner proposal. On September 27th at 1pm Eastern time, Noon Central time, 11am Mountain, and 10am Pacific time, Terry will walk you through how to write a winning book proposal.
If you are going to indie publish (or already have indie published) why would you need this web-ed?
To market your book successfully, you need to know who your audience is. You need to be able to target that market. You need to understand who is writing similarly to you, and if you can capitalize on that. You need to understand exactly why your story is unique in your genre, or why your non-fiction book will sell. You need to understand promotion and what kind of promotion you can provide to sell your book.
If you go the traditional publishing route, you need all of the above as well.
Bottom line, you need to know book proposal mechanics and how to make them work for you.
Terry Whalen will help you do this on September 27th 1pm Eastern/Noon Central. Register for $25 and get access to the recorded version and the handout/checklist.
