The Secret To Getting An Advance On Your Book

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
5:00 – 6:00pm PT / 8:00 – 9:00pm ET

A book is always more than just a book. Much more. Writing a book could direct the course of your career for the rest of your life. It could lead to infinitely important connections, multiple revenue streams, spin off products, breakthrough ideas, and international relations. It could send more business your way. It could pay for a trip to Tahiti or pay the rent. It could change one person’s life for the better. It could start a revolution. You need a plan. Enter Danielle LaPorte and Linda Sivertsen, creators of the hit online digital program—Your Big Beautiful Book Plan.

During Arielle’s call with Danielle and Linda, they’ll discuss:

  • How to grab your reader from page one
  • The importance of taking the aerial view
  • How to justify the need for your book
  • Proposals for fiction and memoir, and how they differ
  • What to do if you’ve never published anything before, but have a great idea
  • Partnering with experts
  • How to repurpose content you already have
  • The advantages of self-publishing, print on demand, and traditional deals
  • How to differentiate yourself if your idea’s already been done

There are approximately three quantum leaps and five leaps of faith, ten giant steps and a thousand baby steps to getting your book on the shelf. Enter: Your Big Beautiful Book Plan.
