6-Day Free Email Course: What Drives Your Story?
Your First Step in Creating a Book Proposal That Sells
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 the purpose of your book: your drive, if you like. This course will help you discover:
- What drives your story
- How to choose a book-worthy topic
- What your book will do for your readers
- How to formulate a great book idea
- How to begin building your publishing strategy
At the end, you will have discovered the rocket fuel that will propel your book-writing energy!
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.
