TO GET A PUBLISHER, EVERY NONFICTION BOOK NEEDS A PROPOSAL.
A book proposal is the mandatory document that ALL literary agents use to sell any nonfiction book to legitimate publishers – the kind of publishers who will pay you an advance for the honor of publishing your book.
If you are aware of the many pitfalls of self-publishing, or if you dream of something significant happening with your book, then you will need to craft your best possible proposal you can…so that you can attract the best publishers 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:
- 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 Despite outdated horror stories from people who never succeeded as authors, in reality publishers invest time, money, focus, and marketing expertise in their authors, not to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!

WITH OUR BOOK PROPOSAL WRITING WORKSHOP, YOU WILL FINALLY GET YOUR PROPOSAL DONE!
That’s perfect timing so you’ll be ready to present your work to agents and publishers.
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:
There are six (6) live sessions included in this this eight-week workshop. Each is taught live online by senior literary agent Wendy Keller. You choose whether to attend the online session and participate in live Q&A, and/or watch the video replay at your leisure. The replay allows you to review the material and guides you if you can’t make it to the live class, or if you are not a resident of USA.
Each session focuses on one of the five (5) basic parts of a book proposal, helping you to understand the reason why each section is critical to your success and the best way to influence what 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” 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 under our caring, helpful guidance.
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 your proposal easily and with the highest level of support you can imagine.

CLIENTS WHO HAVE WORKED WITH WENDY AND HER TEAM:
The course content provided by Wendy Keller was extremely informative and valuable for my future publishing plans. The feedback from actual editors gave true insight into where my content rated currently in the world of publishing. I truly feel that I now know where I need to build and grow in order to write a successful book proposal.

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.
