How to Prep Your Book Idea (and Yourself) for Success Video Download
As soon as you get an idea, it's time to create a business plan for your book. A plan, or book proposal, helps you, a literary agent or an acquisitions editor determine if your book idea is viable,if it will sell in the ever-more competitive publishing marketplace. Used correctly at the early stages of book ideation and creation, a business plan also helps you determine how to craft a marketable book, one with a high likelihood of selling to a publisher, if you like, and to readers. It helps you write the best possible book for your ideal reader and for your target market. That increases the chances of your book succeeding.
Publishers only want to take on marketable ideas from authors who can help sell those books upon release. That means the books must be unique and necessary and have big or profitable enough markets. You, the author, also must be able to prove you have a platform to support your promotion plan. That makes you a good publishing partner. The arguments for these points, as well as others, are contained in a book proposal, which serves as the business plan for a book. If you plan to self-publish, a book proposal serves as the template for a start-up publishing company's business plan as well as for an individual book. You need to use it to for the same reasons,to determine if your idea is marketable and if you are ready to publish it and to help it succeed. You also can use early book planning to map out a successful career by thinking ahead to the additional books you will write and how you might build a business around your book.
