Exciting news for fall! As you may know, we’ve celebrated several Business of Books success stories over the past few months, and we want YOU to be next. To that end, we’ve created three new 90-minute webinars to help you on your path to publication. These are our most popular talks, available to watch at your leisure and review it as many times as you like for just $79. Here’s what we’ve cooked up at the BoB laboratory:
Webinar 1: “Secrets of a Successful Proposal” is our most comprehensive talk, in which we walk you through the nine essential elements every proposal should have, regardless of genre, and help you break it down into manageable pieces. Even if you’ve taken our classes before, this is a great way to brush up on the essentials and make sure you’ve thought through every section.
Webinar 2: “Sell Your Book—And Yourself” is a deeper dive into the increasingly important author bio and marketing sections of the proposal. We’ll highlight how you can show publishers and agents that you are the right person to write this book, and that you also have smart, savvy ideas for promoting your book and getting it into the hands of the right customers.
Webinar 3: “What Every Publisher Wants You to Know” offers up-to-the-minute dos and don’ts so you can give publishers and agents what they’re looking for…right this minute! This webinar is filled with fresh insights from the 2012 Book Expo America conference and from personal interviews we conducted with a variety of publishing professionals in NYC. You’ll never make a rookie mistake after this class.
In addition to the webinars, if you want us by your side every step of the way, you’ll want our exclusive Publishing Toolkit, a comprehensive binder that takes you through our 30-day plan for creating the best possible proposal. It includes all our information, worksheets, and exercises, plus insider information on book deals and negotiation and even two successful sample proposals from our archives to use as templates. You can keep this on your shelf and use it again and again. Click here to purchase.
We hope these tools will provide you with not only information, but also inspiration and motivation to get that book idea out of your head and onto the shelves. Contact us if you have any questions about what might be right for you!
