WriteABookProposal

 

You’ve got a book idea and are determined to become a bestselling author. In fact, you’ve been writing on your book manuscript yet you have no idea where to start the publishing process —
so you haven’t done anything.

Or you have tried to get published and you are tired of collecting form rejection slips. These  letters come without any information about how to improve and get the editor or literary agent’s  attention. What’s your next move?

Or maybe you’ve collected a couple of rejections and are paralyzed about submitting again?

Or maybe the only people giving you the time of day for your publishing dreams are people who want you to pay them to get published. Yes they are willing to produce your books but where do you get wise counsel about how to take the next steps? And wasn't the publisher supposed to pay you for your writing?

You are not alone in your desire to write a book. Most people have no concept of the volume of submissions. According to Get Published! by Susan Driscoll and Diane Gedymin there are “Finished manuscripts for an estimated 8 million novels and 17 million how-to books are lying in desk drawers all over the country waiting to be published.” (p. 64)

Yet you can get a traditional book published if you learn the publishing system. When it comes to nonfiction, editors and literary agents do not read book manuscripts. About 80 to 90 percent of nonfiction books that a traditional publisher contracts are from a book proposal. Many would- be authors are writing their book manuscripts when they need to be learning the craft of writing a book proposal.

Where do you turn to get guided teaching from a publishing professional who knows the inside scoop about books? It’s not the editor’s (or agent’s) responsibility to tell you why they are rejecting your proposal. Because of the massive amounts of submissions, these professionals are forced to use form letters with no information about how to improve your chances of success.

Now you can have this guided instruction through a Fixed-Term Membership Site. A fixed-term membership site (FTM) consists of weekly content shared via autoresponder members for a specified period of time.

Introducing WriteABookProposal: A Step-By-Step, 12-Week Training Program For Starting And Completing an Excellent Book Proposal to send to a publisher!

When you have an idea that you want to get out to the publisher, I can hear you asking, Why does it take 12 weeks to learn about book proposals? Good question.

Literary agents and editors are blasted with submissions. Some people estimate there are a million ideas in circulation at any given moment. You only get one chance--one--to make a good first impression. As a former acquisitions editor, I know how these people think. If you have stacks of submissions, you are looking for any reason to say no. You want to have crafted the absolute best and thorough presentation of your idea to bullet-proof your proposal from rejection. The opportunity for your success is well worth the six-month training to learn these necessary skills.

I developed the WriteABookProposal membership site to teach you how to create your own book proposal from scratch...literally get a traditional publisher to take your book idea and make it into a book.

And, in doing so, I’d make a lot of money. But, many talented people wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the offer simply because it wouldn’t be in their budget.

Listen, I know. I know what it’s like to sink more and more money into empty promises. I know what it’s like to be suckered into buying a high-priced item on an easy installment plan. I’ve been there. Trust me, I know.

Terry, that’s a bargain ... seriously ... what’s the catch?

We both know that the $27 is a drop in the bucket. So, in keeping your guard up with a suspicious mind you’d have to ask the question, right? Well, truthfully, there is a catch...

As a writer, Terry has published more than 60 books with traditional publishers such as Zondervan, St. Martins Press, Tyndale and others. A traditional publisher pays you to write the book.

--Vicki Caruana, teacher and author of the best-selling Apples & Chalkdust.

A well-written book proposal gains attention, piques interest, and provides the information an editor--and later the publicity department--needs to convince not only his editorial staff but the whole publishing team. Terry Whalin provides the know-how to add sales appeal to any book proposal.
--Les Stobbe, Literary Agent, Editor-in-Chief, Christian Writer’s Guild
