Writing a Marketable Book helps an author create a book that has a decent chance of getting published and selling copies. Thousands of authors write books each year - either to submit for publication or to self-publish. 'Getting published', in whatever form, is the Holy Grail. But countless authors either fail to make it off the slush pile, or self-publish a book that sells just a few copies. What's needed is guidance on writing a book that has a decent chance of selling - focusing on initial concept right through to polished manuscript. That's where Writing a Marketable Book comes in.
This is more than a writing guide. This is a guide to the business of publishing and marketing, and to creating a marketable product. It's a book for those looking to secure an agent and publisher, and for those wanting to self-publish. It's a book for anyone who wants an answer to the question: How do I write a book that's marketable to readers? It's what every author needs: a clear, practical, friendly, easy-to-follow book that helps you write a book that readers want to read.
