For the Author Who Has Started Writing the Book and Has a Following and Book Proposal

$1995

If you have begun writing a book, and can send me an outline, part of a chapter, and short explanations of what’s in each chapter (2-3 sentences), and have some online or social media presence for your writing and work, this is the package for you. I will review and make notes on the material (send it to me as a Word or Pages document), review your online presence (social media and website), and through email and phone conversations, we will strengthen your proposal and plan.

The service costs $1995. Together, we will determine:

* what you need to do to change or flesh out your book proposal and submit it to an agent and, subsequently, an editor in a publishing house via that agent

* whether you’re better off seeking a book deal from a publisher or self-publishing. (Note that even if you’re self-publishing, going through the process of creating a book proposal is invaluable for solidifying your vision for your book.) After this consultation, you’ll have a clear idea of what your next step should be, and we can then discuss how I might be able help you further. No book proposal? Not a problem! I can help with that.

* what work you need to do to put together an excellent book proposal or plan for self-publishing

* whether your brand, title, and hook are going to work for you and if not, how you might improve them

* how much you want to build your author platform, and how best to do it, before you submit the proposal to an agent or small book publisher

* what your pitch will be and how to write a terrific query letter (I love to help clients with that!)

No book proposal or following yet? No problem!

If you have nothing or very little written and no online presence, and no book proposal yet, your best bet is to hire me as a book publishing consultant at my rate of $200/hr. so we can work together to start envisioning your book’s title, outline, and format. I’ll explain why a comparative books list will be invaluable to your planning process and give you ideas on how to start creating one. Fill out my contact form (see tab to the right at the top of this page) to send me more information. You can also simply give me a description of your book and the type of help you need and contact me at info@nancypeske.com. Tell me how much you have written and a little about yourself and how you see yourself selling the book in person and online. Let me help you put your book plan together and move into the writing stage with confidence. Give me a couple of suggestions for times you are available, along with your contact information and $100 up front via Paypal or Venmo to nancy@nancypeske.com with the other $100 payable at the end of the call. You will receive a transcript of our conversation.
