We are tickled pink to crack open a copy of Ellen Bremen’s new book, Say This, NOT That to Your Professor. Ellen was one of our very first students, coming to a Business of Books talk after hearing us chatting on KUOW about how sad it makes us to think of all the manuscripts out there that have been abandoned or put aside, for lack of proposal and submission guidance. Realizing a 10-year-long dream, Ellen made this book see the light of day through passion and perseverance. She dealt with rejection and revisions, she started a blog and built up her platform, signed with both literary and lecture agents to develop her book and her personal brand, and she—and we—now hold in our hands Say This, NOT That to Your Professor. We couldn’t be more proud.
In the midst of launching her book, Ellen took time out to offer up a video testimony about our services. Check out what she had to say about The Business of Books.
