Whether you write fiction, nonfiction, or for children, this class will give you the building blocks that will turn the stress of marketing into an exciting way to provide value.

How to Craft a Nonfiction Proposal that Gets Results

Your proposal is the advocate for your book. Essentially, it is you on the paper explaining why your book should be chosen for publication.

5 Steps to Organizing and Excelling at Your Writing Business

When co-writing two nonfiction books at the same time, Bethany and her co-author had to streamline their processes and work efficiently to meet deadlines. During one of their writing weeks, they were standing in the kitchen of their AirBnB rental listening to a training when the lightbulb went off. They didn’t write one word of their book that week.

Instead, they almost literally started from scratch (the book was already under contract!) and began the research to write the book from a marketing perspective so that it would truly meet the needs of their readers. Shortly before one of their books released, they won the CAN Silver medal for marketing on a book that was still on pre-order. She is excited to share these tips and strategies with you!

In this workshop, Bethany shares how to craft your manuscript from a marketing perspective so that your book becomes your best marketing tool, including:

  • The research method that changes everything!
  • How to marry your sidebars with your email marketing funnels,
  • Tips to build an annual marketing calendar,
  • Ways to repurpose the material from your chapters for magazine articles and guest postings,
  • How to build theme lists so you can query podcasters and radio hosts, and more!
