Do you need an agent or a publisher to get your work out there? Here's a way to get yourself noticed.
Hello, my name is Sam Horn, Iím the 15 time MC of the Mallory Writerís Conference and I run the Spot Wishing, Start Writing book caps. Are you wondering why you havenít been able to find an agent or a publisher up until now? Well, do you know that most agents get more than a hundred proposals a week? They donít have time to read those proposals and they certainly donít have time to read a manuscript.
Instead put together, what I call, an ATM proposal Ė two pages. On that A, whatís your author platform? Bullet your credentials so they can see how many organizations you speak to, what TV and radio programs youíve been on.
T is for title. How come a book on punctuation was an international best seller - Eat Shoots and Leaves? Because it had a great title, have a break out title they havenít seen before.
And M is for marketing. What specific steps are you going to take to drive sales in the years to come?
