Author: Joy Eggerichs Reed
As a literary agent, Joy Eggerichs Reed sees book proposals that, unfortunately, she writes off after about sixty seconds of skimming. While that may sound harsh, there are specific things she looks for that show her immediately how seriously a writer takes their goals of getting published. Even though the first steps of writing and figuring out how to publish a book can feel daunting, this book will not only give you everything you need for an incredible proposal, but demystify the publishing process, tell you how to market yourself authentically (and enjoyably), and cheer you on with practical next steps as you decide which publishing route is best for you. And, Joy wants to make this whole process FUN.This is an upbeat 30-day guide with easy to follow examples, stories, and funny illustrations (that you're more than welcome to color in because your brain will need a break), as well as insider knowledge about how to catch an agent's eye, how to land your dream endorsement and how to wildly increase your chances of getting a book deal.Non-fiction, memoir, or novel-this book will help authors (especially first-timers) who have questions and feel alone in the writing process. Let Joy be your (slightly aggressive) friend who will encourage you, tell you what to do, and leave you feeling oh-so-confident because of all the progress you've made by day 30. If you let this book guide you, I PROMISE you will close the last page, involuntarily shout, "WOW, I did that!" You'll also get to know way more about Joy's personal life than you probably wanted.
