SELL YOUR FICTION OR MEMOIR!

"Sell Your Stuff" is an
intensive webinar for writers of fiction and memoir. If you're writing
a novel or life story, it takes a stunning package to see a book all
the way to publication. You have to become more than just a writer—you
have to sell your stuff to agents and editors. That's the part most
writers have trouble understanding, and that's what this webinar is all
about.

What attendees will learn:

  • How to draw an agent into your story in just a few words—whether it's
    your query, verbal pitch or the first page of your manuscript.
  • What goes into a killer query—from making a connection to an agent, to
    drafting an exciting pitch that will leave agents wanting more.
  • The importance of a one-sentence tagline that gets a reader excited about your book.
  • What agents look for on that all-important Page 1.
  • How to plan and prepare a verbal pitch of your book so you can meet with agents at writers conferences.
  • What goes into a complete proposal for fiction—and how to know all the tools at your disposal.
  • How agents and editors quickly look over a project and decide if it has the necessary elements to make them request more.
  • How to get your book published!


ABOUT RACHELLE:

Let's cut right to the chase: Rachelle knows her stuff. Her publishing blog
has been on the Writer's Digest 101 Best Sites every single year that
her site's been in existence. If memory serves, she mentioned that
about 450,000 people visited her site last year to learn from her. What
does it all mean? Rachelle knows how to communicate ideas and tips that
writers can take away.

She is an agent with Wordserve Literary Group. She's looking at all genres of adult fiction
except fantasy, sci-fi, and erotica, and prefers stories with strong
characters and page-turning plots. Currently her favorite genres are
contemporary women's fiction, historical romance, and romantic
suspense. In nonfiction, she's looking for authors with strong messages
(for either a Christian audience or the general market) and significant
marketing platforms.
