From Book Proposal to a Published Book

Since many writers are well into writing their books and are looking for specific information on how to write and submit a book proposal, we’ve re-published From Book Proposal to a Published Book, which is a short version of one of the sections in The Write Way.

Offers everything you need to know about writing a perfect book proposal that will get you an offer and a publishing contract for your nonfiction book...

From finding the right publisher or agent, creating an author platform, developing a marketing and promotion plan, writing your query letter and book proposal, submitting it in a professional manner, to understanding and negotiating a book contract, being edited, and seeing your book on the bookstore shelf… this book has it all.

It clearly explains what to do and how to do it, and what NOT to do to get your book published.

Wrote a new novel for NaNoWriMo

In October I decided to do NaNoWriMo for the first time. To win, you have to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days during the month of November. I'm no stranger to writing but this presented an interesting challenge. I wanted to do it to see if I could do it.

When I started, I thought I'd be able to do 50,000 words. I am, after all, a writer, so this should have been easy. But I'd never written a book in 30 days, so I didn't know what to expect and what would happen. My goal was to write a decent first draft -- something I was proud to have written and would want to publish.

And I did it!! Actually, I more than did it; once I got started, I couldn't stop and ended up with 117,934 words of a new novel -- about a kahuna quest and writers writing a 50,000-word novel -- in ten days! And then I just kept on writing for the rest of the month, all the way through to a finished first draft.

I had a blast doing NaNo and I totally love my new book... :) I'll blog again in a few months when it's published and tell you more about the book.

Writing my Novel

November 1st is here and it's time to write my NaNoWriMo 50,000-word novel in 30 days. This is going to be so much fun!! You're supposed to write at least 1667 words per day, which will bring you to the goal of 50,000 words. Here's a neat little tracker so you can see my progress.

I'll blog again when I'm done and give you the details about my new novel -- it's a parody about writers and writing.
