“Traditional publishing is dead!”

That’s what people are saying…

However, in 2011, more than 3,000,000 books were traditionally published and each of these needed a publisher and probably an agent.

So why aren’t you urgently trying to win a book deal and a six figure advance?

Perhaps you think that there is just too much competition…[features_box_blue width="75%" + border="2px"]Well you are right to think that many writers are looking for book deals, but here are two secrets that will help you nail a book deal:

1. Most books sent to agents and publishers are poorly thought out and badly presented.

2. Most writers have no understanding of what a publisher or agent is actually looking for at any given time.[/features_box_blue]

To be honest, this offer is a little unfair! You see our guides will give you a one-sided advantage over other writers by teaching you the insider secrets that will allow you to understand what agents and publishers are looking for in a book proposal and THEN explaining, step-by-step, just how to do it.

So what’s stopping you?

Perhaps you feel that the whole process takes too long…

[features_box_blue width="75%" + border="2px"]If you approach agents and publishers like ‘normal’ people, yes the process can take months, if not years.

However, our guides will show you how to approach agents and publishers like a professional writer. Our step-by-step guides will explain how to bypass the slush pile and get a decision in record time.[/features_box_blue]

Maybe you feel that self-publishing offers you a better chance to make money…

[features_box_blue width="75%" + border="2px"]When you say self-publishing are you including editing, cover design, typesetting, digital book conversion, website design, online marketing, offline marketing, digital distribution, traditional distribution and printing (I could go on)?

A publisher and agent will do all of this AND give you a lump sum of cash up front.

Oh yeah and remember it is not self-published books that foreign publishers are paying five figure sums just to secure the international publishing rights.

And… self-published books are not being made into films. Now that’s where the serious money is hiding.[/features_box_blue]

So are you still not convinced that you should at least give traditional publishing a go?

What do you have to lose?

Perhaps you have been unsure of how to write a book proposal and fear that dreaded rejection letter?

Well, I don’t blame you.

But if you approach agents and publishers like a pro – and these guides will teach you to do just that - then it is all pretty easy.


If you want to learn to pitch like a professional…

If you want to find out once and for all if you have what it takes to become a professional writer…

If you want to know what it feels like to say, “I’ll have to ask my agent.’

[content_box_red width="75%"]How To Write A Successful Non-Fiction Book Proposal In 7 Days
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?”

Think of it as a combination brochure and outline of your proposed book.

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.

It sounds incredible, but a fast seven figures is certainly possible if you have a HOT, hot idea or have had an experience that hundreds of thousands of people want to read about.

In his 2001 book about writing non-fiction, Damn! Why Didn’t I Write That?, author Marc McCutcheon says that it’s not hard to make a good income writing non-fiction: “you can learn the trade and begin making a respectable income much faster than most people think possible”.

Do you need experience to sell a book on proposal?
No! You just need a good proposal. :-)

How to Write and Publish Your Own Books” shows you how to go from idea to completed book proposal in seven short days.

Imagine — in seven days, you could be sending your proposal to agents and editors!

The ebook includes everything you need to know. Just follow the easy steps. It even includes a sample proposal, which got a contract from an agent immediately it was sent out.

You can do it too!

Here’s what you’ll discover in “How to Write and Publish Your Own Books”

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • 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.

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • 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.

[order_box_2 width="60%" + border="4px"]Myth One
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.[/order_box_2]

[order_box_2 width="60%" + border="4px"]Myth Two
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.[/order_box_2]

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • 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 selling blurb.

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • Day Four: Research your book proposal, and flesh out your book’s outline


The fast and easy way to research your proposal – you may not need to do any research at all. You may already know all you need to know.

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • Day Five: Write your proposal query letter, and submit it to agents and publishers


How to write a SELLING query letter, with sample letters which have SOLD books.

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • Day Six: Write the proposal

[/red_tick_list]The fast and easy way to write your proposal — everything you need to include to make sure that your proposal SELLS.

[red_tick_list width="100%"]

  • Day Seven: Write the sample chapter. Revise your proposal


Seven days, and you’re done! How to write the professional way, and a step by step easy way to revise.

“How to Write and Publish Your Own Books also includes a complete, selling proposal, which got a contract from the first agent who saw it.

Have you always want to write a book and be a published author?

This ebook gives you a complete method. The ebook shows you EXACTLY HOW to write and SELL.

You can be a published author much faster than you imagine.

Can I show you how to write a book proposal that sells?

Yes! I’ve sold many fiction and non-fiction books, all on proposal. This ebook includes sample proposals which have SOLD.

I show you exactly what to do, and explain the methods I use to write and sell.

If you’ve ever thought “I could write a book” — you can!

Can I guarantee that you’ll sell your proposal?

I can’t guarantee it , but I’ll make it several thousand times more likely that you’ll sell. You’ll learn what a professional, selling proposal looks like, and will learn how to write a professional, saleable proposal.

Publishers receive hundreds of proposals each week. As any book editor or agent will tell you, 99% have no chance of selling ever — they’re amateurish.

Working with this ebook will ensure that your proposal makes it into the 1% of saleable proposals.

Formats included: pdf, epub, mobi and audio.[/content_box_red]

[content_box_red width="75%"]Professional Book Proposal Assessment
So you have written your book proposal and you are ready to send it off…


How do you know if it is good enough?

You will only get one chance with an agent or publisher. They will take one look at your book proposal and make a decision. If they decide, no that’s your chance gone. Once they have rejected your book they will not reconsider, no matter how much you beg (I’ve tried!)

So, what to do? How will you know if your book proposal is a winner or a trukey?

Well, the answer is to let me help you out.

I have more than 20 books in print (google ‘Gary Smailes’), I have an agent and I am the co-founder of BubbleCow.

As part of this offer I am prepared to look at your cover letter and synopsis and give you my personal feedback.

On the very rare occasions that I offer this service to our clients I normally charge $100 a pop (trust me I am good). However, as a one-time offer I am including the critique service in at the $17 price (how did I let them talk me into this?).

To claim your critique you just need to email me your completed book proposal to the email address you will receive when you buy the package. Simple.

Oh, there’s no time limit on the critique.

[features_box_blue width="75%" + border="2px"]Writer’s Road Map
Have you always wanted to write your own book and get it published? If you have written a book or even if you have a yen to be a writer, you are probably already aware of the competition in the writing field. Most of those who submit unsolicited manuscripts to agents or publishing houses are rejected without the book even being read. This can be enough to turn any writer off the idea of writing their book. After all, if you go through the trouble of writing a book, you certainly want to see it published, right?

You have probably heard about vanity press, that publish your book and make you order hundreds of copies. This costs thousands of dollars and who has the money, these days, to put out that kind of money to get their book published? Especially since they seem to be limited to selling only to family and friends? Most people are aware of vanity press and want to avoid it because it costs so much money.

Perhaps you have an idea for a book but do not know how to put it together? This is common for someone who is considering writing either a fiction novel or a non-fiction book. Writing the book may seem easy for someone who has never before undertaken this endeavor, but it can be far from easy. The way the book reads upon completion is not the same way that it comes out of your head. A book starts with a creative spark - an idea, the title of a song, an image or even a dream that you had - and goes from there. It can be difficult to convey everything concisely in a 200 page book. You have to be concerned about consistency, character building and plot movement in the book.

But if you want to write a book, there is hope for you. If you have the desire to be a published author, the only thing that is stopping you from doing so is yourself. You can write a book and have it published without it costing you a fortune.

Hope for every writer…

Every writer has a voice that they long to be heard. It is just a matter of getting that voice out to the public by way of the book. Unfortunately, the big publishing houses will very rarely take a book by an unknown author. Most of them do not accept unsolicited manuscripts at all and most will only deal with literary agents.

Literary agents do not usually accept manuscripts from an unknown writer, either. They look for books from someone who has a proven track record and will make them money. Agents usually have a law degree and act as a lawyer on behalf of their clients. Like most lawyers, they do not like to work for free unless they feel that there is something in it for them.

But thanks to the internet as well as advances in computer technology that involve printing, any writer can get their book published in an affordable way. Forget vanity press - those days are over! You can get your book self published with an online company that offers new and experienced writers a chance to get their voices heard. This is a print to order procedure that does not cost the writer much money at all and will even get their book on Amazon. If you have always wanted to be a writer, now is the time to do so!

There are many books online, as well as tips that can help you write your own book. Chances are, if you are reading this, you have already started on your book or are at least contemplating writing it. This guide is for new writers and gives you the basic principles of how to write a book. In addition, it teaches you how to market your self published book, something that you have to do even if you have a book published by mainstream press.

This is the only book of its kind that tells you the truth and gives you the resources you need to get what you want.

Inspiration and Information!

1) Learn how to get started writing

Even if you have never written anything before in your life, if you have an idea for a book, you owe it to yourself to get it out there! This book will take you step by step through the process of writing book from start to finish, and how to complete it so that it is ready for the press! This book teaches a new writer everything that they need to know about how to writer a book that others will want to buy and read!

2) Learn what to do after your book is published

In addition to giving you resources on where you can self publish your book as well as different ways that you can do this, you need to then learn what to do once your book is published. Just sit around and wait for sales? Not a chance! You need to market your book just like anyone markets bestselling books, films and other new art forms. Your book is a work of art, but it will only be read if others know it exists. Fortunately, this book gives you ways that you can market your book without spending a lot of money or, in most cases, any money at all.
