How to Get a Real Publisher for Your Nonfiction Book

TO GET A PUBLISHER, EVERY NONFICTION BOOK NEEDS A PROPOSAL.

A book proposal is the mandatory document that ALL literary agents use to sell nonfiction books to legitimate publishers – the ones who will pay you an advance for the honor of publishing your book.  If self-publishing isn’t what you dream about, you’ll want to craft the best proposal you can so that you attract the best publisher and get paid the highest advance possible for your book. 

A book proposal…should convey your book concept, who you are and how you will participate in promoting your book…and it must clarify why you are confident that your book will be successful in the marketplace.

Every nonfiction book editor uses the author’s proposal to decide if your book is what they want to publish.  You only get one shot – make it a good one!

The 5 Best Things a Properly Published Book Will Do For You:

  1. The biggest differences between self-publishing and getting your book published by an A-list publisher like Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins, McGraw-Hill or Hachette are these: Prestige, publicity, editorial development  and superior distribution.
  2.  Journalists take professionally published books seriously, so you are far more likely to get TV, newspaper, magazine and other journalists to respect you.  One media “hit” can make your whole career!  Just imagine the possibilities when you can honestly say, “As seen in the Wall Street Journal” or “Click here to watch me on The View”. As an author who has made it through the gauntlet of the publishing industry has already proven that you have valuable content to share and are to be respected.  
  3.  Customers, prospects and peers believe you know your stuff.  When you have been paid by a proper publisher for the honor of them publishing your book, it says something about the quality of your message: that you are at the top of your game.
  4.  You automatically get a team of experts, all committed to your success.  Despite outdated horror stories from people who never succeeded as authors, modern publishers invest time, money, focus and marketing expertise in their authors, not to mention the extraordinary benefits of having an agent help you create and market the best book you possibly can create. 
  5.  Although you may not know this now, despite every author’s best intentions, the average self-published book sells a mere 117 copies, according to industry research.  Which basically = zero.  And every single one of those people believed they would be the shining exception to the rule!

WITH OUR BOOK PROPOSAL WRITING WORKSHOP, YOU WILL FINALLY GET YOUR PROPOSAL DONE IN JUST 6 LIVE SESSIONS!

Discover how to create excellent nonfiction book proposals – for your current great idea…and all your future ones. There’s no other simple, proven online course that will give you clear guidelines PLUS extensive, personalized  editorial feedback for such a low investment.

How it works:

Each session is taught LIVE by senior agent Wendy Keller. You can attend the live session (usually about 45 minutes long) and/or to watch the video replay at your leisure. This will help if you want to review the material, if you couldn’t make it to the live class or if you are not a resident of USA.

Each session focuses on one of the 5 basic parts of a book proposal, helping you to understand WHY each section is critical to your success, and the best way to influence how the editors are thinking when they read your words.

In a relaxed, comfortable manner, you will be guided to create your very best proposal. Wendy has taught her copyrighted, unique and much-complimented (by editors and now-published authors) system to more than 20,000 writers worldwide.

After every class, you will get a “homework assignment” based on that session, with a reasonable deadline for typically busy working adults. When you turn in the assignment, one of our editors will read it and give you valuable feedback so that you understand how a publishing professional may see your work. Now is the time, while it is safe, to make any necessary changes.

At the end of the course, just add one or two sample chapters and FINALLY be ready to start shopping your excellent proposal to literary agents and publishers. Imagine that! You’ll write this easily and with the highest level of support you can imagine.

Two important caveats:

1. Your enrollment in this course does not imply that Keller Media will represent you or this book. Please be clear about that.

2. We will not change your idea. We will give feedback in the form of “developmental editing”. That means we will tell you the thoughts and questions that are likely to occur to any experienced publishing professional when they are reading your material, and invite you to consider making changes.  We are not here to tell you if your core concept is “good” or “bad”, only to help you bring it to light in the best possible way.
