Let’s make your book. This seminar will get you on the road to a book contract. We’ll help you get to the heart of your idea, find marketing angles, and understand the process of creating a book proposal, building a platform as an author, and pitching to literary agents. You will receive a Book It! tool kit with step-by-step guidelines, sample proposals, worksheets and resources to help you get your book idea into the hands of an agent and, ultimately, a publisher. *(Not Self-Published)
