  • Prepping Yourself and Your Book Idea for Success

The average book today sells only about 250 copies per year and 3,000 in its lifetime. Novelists can expect to sell between 2,000 and 10,000 copies--if they are "average." Improve your odds of becoming a successful novelist by producing a business plan for your book before you write a word. As you do, you develop an Author Attitude, craft a marketable book idea, and evaluate both your idea and yourself through an acquisitions editor’s lens.

Learn how to determine if your book is not only a great creative idea but also marketable product—a viable business venture. Go through the Author Training Process, the foundation for creating books that sell—to publishers and to readers! This nine-step evaluation tool helps you determine if your book is ready to go to market—to be shopped to agents, publishers or readers—and if you are ready to become an author.
