Would you like to GET PAID to write a book?
If you’re thinking this is plain fantasy, think again. All professional writers get
paid to write their books. How? They sell their books via proposals before they
write the books.
What’s a book proposal?
A book proposal is a document which convinces a publisher to buy your book before
you’ve written it. Your proposal says, in effect: “Hey, I’ve got a great idea for a
book which lots of people will want to buy. Do you want to publish it?”
You CAN sell your book the easy way – sell a proposal
It’s easily possible to make a fast $10,000, or even a six figure amount. You could
even make seven figures – over a million dollars for twenty pages of text.
Here’s what you’ll discover in “How to Write and Publish Your Own Books”
Day One: What’s a book proposal? Develop an idea for your book
Exactly what a book proposal is, and an EASY way for you to come up with more
saleable ideas for books than you could write in a dozen lifetimes.
Day Two: Develop your idea and assess the market
Here’s an excerpt from Day Two:
Dispelling myths and a word about confidence
If you’re feeling nervous now that you’re about to start this project, relax. Tell
yourself that you will take it step by step. All you need to do is work at it
steadily, a word, sentence and paragraph at a time, and you will complete your
proposal, and then when you’ve sold the proposal, you’ll complete your book using
the same easy-does-it method.
While we’re at it, let’s dispel a few myths.
It takes a special talent to write books.
It takes persistence. There are as many different kinds of writers as there are
people. Some are young, some are elderly, many are in-between. You don’t need any
special writing talent to write books, nor do you need to be highly educated. Many
successful writers have never completed high school. If you can write well enough to
write a letter, you can write a book.
Writers starve in garrets.
Many professional writers make incomes that would make doctors and lawyers envious.
Most make reasonable incomes. If you decide to make a career of writing nonfiction
books, the major benefit is that if you choose your book’s topic with care, your
book can stay in print for many years. For each year that your book’s in print, you
get two royalty checks. Let’s say that you write two books a year for five years. At
the end of the five years, if your books all stay in print, you’ll be getting ten
royalty checks a year. These ongoing royalties are your nest-egg, profitable
investments in your future.
Day Three: Write the blurb and outline your book
The “blurb” is the back cover material for your book – the selling points which
will get people to buy the book. If you write the blurb before you write an outline,
you’re guaranteed not to wander off the track as you write your book.
Writing the blurb will keep you on-track as you write your proposal and your book.
I’ve included two sample blurbs from my published books to show you how to write a
