How to Get Your Book Published Now

Writers, are you tired of sending out your great proposal or manuscript to editors or agents and getting no reply?

Are you frustrated in never knowing why your proposal or manuscript gets rejected or ignored?

Are you ready to stop wasting countless time and money meeting editors and agents at conferences only to have these “leads” go nowhere?

Are you certain you have something to contribute by writing a book but just don't know where to start?

You don’t have to put up with this anymore.

Book contracts are out there for you.

You just need to know how to get them.

I've rejected thousands of book proposals.

And I've published over 600 books.

You’re likely making the same mistakes over and over but no editor is telling you what these mistakes are. 

Don't you want to know what editors really think? You'll find out in the course. And if you still have questions, you can just ask!

But don't take my word for it: scroll down now and get some content... totally free. There are 4 videos, 2 slideshows, and 2 podcasts free to watch and download right now.

Here's what an industry insider has to say:

“One of the most valuable parts of your material is your explanation of how an editor thinks and reads. This is the great mystery to writers, especially new ones.”

Michael McGregor, MFA professor at Portland State University

Even if you are already a published author, this course can help you get an even better deal for your next book. 

The information in the contracts lesson alone can make you back the cost of the course, and save you even more, on your contract.

The course will reveal…

✔ 16 tried and true strategies for you to approach a book editor successfully without a literary agent whether you're writing fiction, non-fiction, memoir...whatever

✔ What goes on behind closed doors at editorial meetings… and how you can use this knowledge to strengthen your approach

✔ The single word you must eliminate from any book contract you receive

✔ The secrets of book editors... and how to use these to your advantage

✔ Why a “narrow” audience is really a wide audience and how you can make this principle work for you

✔ How to recognize and eliminate the warning signs you’ll never finish writing.

This course contains…

--Over 5 hours of lessons with audio and video material 

--A complete package of worksheets, self-assessments, checklists, and blueprints to walk you through all the key points of the course. These include: 7-point proposal fist aid checklist; concept worksheet; contract negotiating points; sales and marketing blueprint and much more!
