Join us at the San Rafael Corporate Center, 750 Lindaro Street in San Rafael, on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
Are you and your book idea marketable? Find out. Evaluate your book (and yourself) for success.
Learn how to look at your book idea through the eyes of an agent or acquisitions editor. Discover how to use the step-by-step process of acquiring the information necessary for a nonfiction book proposal to help hone and focus your idea so you can create traditionally published or self-published books that sellsundefinedto publishers and to readers!
This is NOT a workshop on how to write a nonfiction book proposal (but you’ll learn a lot about it and finish ready to write one). This IS a workshop about how to use the nonfiction book proposal writing process to conceptualize both the creative and business aspects of a successful nonfiction book.
Creating a successful book requires more than just a good idea and good writing. It requires a marketable idea and a superb business plan. It also requires a writer willing to become the business partner a publisher seeks.
In this class, you’ll learn to:
- Write a pitch
- Discover the features and benefits of your book
- Find your markets and identify your readers
- Hone your idea
- Conceptualize your book
- Create a table of contents
- Fine tune your contents based on the competition
- Use a nonfiction proposal as a writing guide
- Explore publishing options
- Start writing your book
You’ll also learn about:
- Sending out query letters and proposals
- Finding an agent or publisher
- The self-publishing process
- Platform Building
- Writing a nonfiction book proposal
Attendees will leave this class with an understanding of what it takes to write a nonfiction book and get it published traditionally. Those who plan to self-publish will understand how to approach their book with a business eye.
Everyone will have crystallized their book idea, come up with a table of contents, and conceptionalized the contents of their chapters. They also will have begun writing at least one chapter. Additionally, they will have written and practiced a “pitch” and have accumulated the information necessary for either a book proposal or the business plan for a self-published book.
