Get Ready to Present Your Book to Literary Agents and Publishers
BOOK PROPOSAL WRITING WORKSHOP
THE BENEFITS OF FINDING A GREAT PUBLISHER
The biggest differences between self-publishing and getting your book published by an A-list publisher like Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins or McGraw-Hill are these: Prestige, publicity, editorial development and superior distribution.
Journalists take professionally published books seriously and 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”. Journalists are trained to trust an author who has made it through the gauntlet of the publishing industry because it proves your content is valuable and you are to be respected.
Customers, prospects, and peers believe you know your stuff. Because you have been published by a proper publisher, it says to the world that you are at the top of your game.
You automatically get a team of experts committed to your success. Despite outdated horror stories from people who never succeeded as authors, in reality publishers invest time, money, focus, and marketing expertise in their authors, not to mention the extraordinary benefits of having a smart, marketing-savvy agent help you develop and market the best book you can create.
Although you may not know this yet, 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. Get a real publisher and succeed at the bigger game of publishing!

HOW IT WORKS:
You will be carefully guided through what to do and how to do it right, but even more importantly, literary agent Wendy Keller will explain the whys. She will reveal the inner workings of the publishing industry and truth about how editors think in six (6) live Zoom sessions over this eight-week workshop.
Each live class will give you a new writing assignment and a deadline

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…even though finding new talent is the main reason Wendy teaches this course.
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.
DECIDING BETWEEN SELF-PUBLISHING AND TRADITIONAL PUBLISHING?
Writing a great book will require a thorough outline, a solid analysis of how your book will be better than the competition, and a plan for promoting your book once it is published. Those three elements already represent 3/5ths of a book proposal. Why not turn those elements into a great proposal? Then you can let your literary agent shop it for you while you write the manuscript. That will give you the choice of all possible options.
