5-Day Free Email Course: Make Your Book Stand Out

Your Second Step in Creating a Book Proposal That Sells

This is the second in a series of free email courses. Together, they reveal my tried-and-proven process for writing a stellar book proposal.

Your book proposal is a hybrid between a vision board and a business plan for your book. Before writing chapters, or outlines, or anything else, you need to be clear about how your book sits in the world: its positioning. Your own positioning as an author is also critical. This 5-day free email course will help you discover:

  • How your book differs from the competition
  • What genre it belongs to—and why it matters
  • Who your readers are and what they want
  • How to write your author biography.

At the end, you will know exactly how to make your book stand out in the crowd!

I’m Sally Collings, a book proposal specialist. In the last ten years, I’ve written dozens of successful book proposals. In the process, my clients and I have won a bunch of awards: 2013 Walkley Award for Killing Fairfax; 2011 Kibble Literary Award nomination for Parenting With Soul; 2008 ABIA Biography of the Year shortlist for Never Say Die; and bestsellers Sophie’s Journey; Fat Dad, Fat Kid; Bulletproof; and A Long Road to Overnight Success.
And for all that success, here’s what I’ve learned. No matter how great your story, your name recognition, or your marketing efforts, your book will live or die on the strength of your book proposal.
The only way I know to attract a top agent or editor is to craft a book proposal so good the proposal itself is unputdownable.
Lucky for you, I know how to do just that.
