This book is packed with practical advice, specific examples, and tons of free resources to help you become a published author. You will learn: - What makes a marketable book concept, why yours probably isn't (yet), and how to fix it - The two-step formula that I & other traditionally published authors used to adapt a book concept to the market, and how to apply this strategy to your book (w/links to a free video training) - I walk you through building a book proposal (with examples), plus a few tricks to REALLY make your pitch stand out - How to construct a query letter, line-by-line - Specifically where to find the perfect agent for your book, and how to see when agents are reading your email so you'll know when to follow up - Tons of other little tips & secrets to help you land a literary agent and get a publishing deal I remember how frustrating it was when I was trying to figure out how to get an agent to pay attention to me. I just wanted someone to give me a chance. There were lots of blogs and other books offering advice—mostly what not to do—but nobody could explain why my book wasn’t getting picked up. And they definitely weren’t explaining what I could to do to fix it. It was as if everyone who’d crossed to the other side and become a published author, then burned the bridge behind them and said “good luck to the rest of you.” It was a rough, lonely, and expensive road to getting my book published. And I don’t want you to have to go through the same thing. That's why this book is free. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that the process of getting traditionally published was about the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. Upon getting published, my book was in every major bookstore in the U.S., as well as Canada, the U.K., and Australia. I was booked on national television and appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers—everything from Good Morning America, The Doctors, and Business Insider, to The New York Post, Fox News, and Vice. And I was giving countless interviews for conventional radio shows, Siruis XM, and podcasts. And I wrote this book to help you achieve the same. My goal with this book is to provide as much value as I can, show you all the steps, answer any questions, provide tons of free resources, and hopefully overdeliver in every way possible, so that your book will attract an agent, and help you become a traditionally published author. See you on the inside! — Jeff Scot Philips
