Every writer needs a Cartel. A Cartel is defined as an agreement amongst competitors.
Buffer 1K Shares Note from Mack: The goal of this post was to provide helpful advice for others, especially my many friends in consulting that were curious about the entire process of writing their own book. I work as a digital and content strategist to help companies with their content and digital marketing as well as helping them build programs that better connect my client with their customers.
Thanks for reading and good luck with your writing! You need to figure out what book YOU were meant to write. The book that no one else could write. Four years ago I was approached by an editor to write a book on marketing on YouTube.
Remember this wasand there were very few social media books at the time. I was pitched on a couple of other book ideas over the next couple of years, but I finally decided that Think Like a Rock Star was the only book I wanted to write.
For each book, you need to explain what your book offers that the competing title misses. And try your best to pick newer titles. If you propose that your book idea will be competing against 5 books that were all written in the mid s, that tells the publisher that your idea is dead, otherwise someone would have written about it in the past 15 years!
This is where it starts to get serious, and we find out if you really want to write a book, or if you are just toying with the idea. This is another good test to prepare you for the process.
And writing those chapters will give you a great idea of how long it will take you to write the entire book. For example, if it takes you 3 months to write the first chapter, that could be a big red flag.
This is where you want to mention any speaking you will be doing on this topic over the next year, as well as your online profile, your following. If you can get a suitable deal with one of them, fine.
I could not, and decided to go with an agent. The huge immediate benefit is that you get access to several dozen publishers and these are publishers that the agent works with regularly. The agent can also look over any contract you are offered, and help you with the terms.
For me, while a bit disappointing, this was also a big help. Because most of the publishers would explain WHY they turned down the book.
As long as they explain WHY they are saying no, that gives you something to work with when you send it off to the next publisher.
I should have been more clear here, your advance is against the money you will make from royalties on the book. Thanks to Andrew and Don for the clarifications. Before you email me asking how you can get your book idea published or leave a comment here asking the same, read this post.
This is the best advice I can give you on how to get a book deal. Let me be perfectly clear: I am not an agent, I am not a publisher. So I am not the person to be emailing about your book idea because all the help I can give you is in this post.All the tools you need to create, publish, manage, and sell your book all in one place.
