Evaluating your Book Idea and Prepping for Success
Format: MP3 Audio Download
Improve your odds of becoming a successful author by producing a business plan for your book before you write a word. In this session, you'll learn what acquisitions editors are looking for and to see your ideas through their eyes. You'll learn the process for determining whether your idea is marketable to agents, publishers or readers — and if you are ready to become an author. This is not a session on writing book proposals. But you will learn how to use parts of a book proposal as a process to train yourself to see both the creative and business aspects of writing and publishing a book and creating a business plan for a book. This is the foundation for creating books that sell to publishers and to readers, to become the business partner that a publisher seeks or to become a savvy and successful indie publisher.
