Your Book’s Business Plan:
Prepping Yourself and Your Book Idea for Success
with NAIWE’s Blog to Book Expert, Nina Amir
hosted by Janice Campbell
September 17, 2014 at 3:00p.m. EDT
The average book today sells only about 250 copies a year, 3,000 in its lifetime. Improve your odds of becoming a successful author by producing a business plan for your book before you write a word. As you do, you’ll develop an Author Attitude and learn how to
evaluate your ideas and yourself through the same lens used by an acquisitions editor.
Learn how to determine if your book is not only a great creative idea but also marketable product—a viable business venture—as you go through the Author Training Process. It’s the foundation for creating books that sell—to publishers and to readers! This evaluation tool helps you determine if your idea is ready to go to market—to be shopped to agents, publishers or readers—and if you are ready to become an author.
This is NOT a session on how to write a book proposal (but you’ll learn a lot about it). This IS a session about how to use the parts of a book proposal as a process to train yourself to see both the creative and business aspects of writing and publishing a book and creating a business plan for a book. This session is appropriate for fiction writers and for nonfiction writers.
