“How Do I Know If I Have a Good Book Idea?”


What You’ll Learn in This Course

Before you spend countless hours writing a book proposal or fleshing out chapter summaries, you need to know if you actually have a good book idea.

Are you even in the vicinity of what’s selling right now? Is this what publishers are interested in, or is the subject overdone? Does your unique angle have merit? Are you credible to speak on this topic, or should you take a different route? The last thing you want to do is spend hours and hours developing and writing a bad idea!

Here’s what you’ll learn in this 5-video course:

  • How to assess (or create!) the premise of your book and ensure that it’s strong
  • How to develop the “promise” of your book — the core benefit that it offers the reader
  • The keys to a great hook, the big question or mystery that attracts your reader
  • How to figure out exactly who your book is for (so you know who to focus on)
  • How to build your book around the compelling felt need of your target reader

Through these videos, you will discover the essential elements of a strong, marketable book idea. Whether you’re just getting started or revising a current manuscript, this course will help you focus your efforts for the best possible result!
