Nina Amir, Blog to Book Expert, NAIWEYou’re invited to join us for a NAIWE Member Teleclass
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.

(Based on Nina Amir’s new book, The Author Training Manual, Writer’s Digest Books, Feb. 2014.)

Session takeaways:

  1. Learn how to discover if your book idea is marketable.
  2. Find out how to decide if you are cut out to write and market a successful book—if you are an attractive publishing partner or savvy indie publisher.
  3. Discover what publishers and readers want.
  4. Learn how to produce a successful book.
  5. Take the nine steps in the “proposal process.”
  6. See through an acquisitions editor’s eyes.
  7. Find out why you shouldn’t write your book as soon as you get the idea.
  8. Learn how to be the business partner a publisher seeks.
  9. Learn to write a book that sells.

How to Blog Your Way to a Book Deal: Teleclass with Nina Amir

NAIWE Members, you’re invited to
join us for a member teleclass-
3:30 pm EST on Wednesday August 15, 2012
with NAIWE’s Blog to Book Expert, Nina Amir

Nina Amir, Blog to Book Expert, NAIWESome say the blog-to-book craze reached its height back in 2009, but more bloggers are landing deals and having their books released per month currently than at that time. Agents and acquisition editors continue to troll the Internet looking for blogs to turn into books because they want to find books as close to a “sure thing” as possible. A blog with an established readership and a blogger with a built-in fan base or platform represents a successfully test marketed book idea.

Rather than just blogging and then repurposing your posts into a book, or booking your blog, learn how to write, publish, and promote a book on the Internet using blog technology. Blogging a book is the easiest and quickest way to write a book and promote it at the same time. If you can write, you can blog. That means you can blog your way to creating a successful book—one that attracts readers and publishers. You can produce a manuscript, and promote and publish your work one post at a time in cyberspace. If you attract enough readers, you may also get “discovered” by an agent or publisher.

Learn how you can blog your way to a book deal or to create a blog that attracts readers, agents and publishers. This class also will touch on how to book a blog and why a successful blog ensures a successful self-published book.

This session will outline how writers who blog or blog a book:

  • publish as they write
  • build author platform while they write
  • get noticed by agents and acquisition editors

Session takeaways:

  • Why all aspiring authors should blog
  • What to blog about
  • 10 reasons to blog a book
  • The pros and cons of blogging vs. blogging a book
  • 6 things you need to do before you blog a book
  • 3 things you need for your blog to get discovered
  • The elements a blog needs if it is to become a book
