Dianna Coaches You on How to Get Published, Write Your Book Fast, and Get Major Media

Our coaching program assumes the target publisher is a major house with name credibility and prestige that will pay you good money for your masterpiece.

Why? Because that prestige automatically transfers to your book in the mind of the buyer. Generally, you don’t find top-selling books coming off the self-publisher’s printer or presses. In fact, the average self-published book sells only a few hundred copies, which generate little opportunity for multiple revenue streams.

A select few authors have carved out a successful niche relying on the self-publishing format. Learn how they did it. Then you will have the facts to make an unbiased decision for your project and goals.

Whatever direction you ultimately take—self-publishing or traditional publishing with a major publishing house—this coaching program has much to offer: from writing a quality book quickly, to marketing your masterpiece, to developing an entire line of products from that content.

In This Program You Will Learn How To:
  • Create original concepts that you can trademark and
    extend to a brand
  • Test the market for your book idea
  • Develop 12 approaches to almost any subject
    and select the most appropriate for your topic
  • Select writing projects that propel your career to
    the next level
  • Create or expand your personal platform to get the
    attention of publishers and major influencers
  • Craft enticing titles that tease readers to
    take your book home
  • Create an irresistible one-page pitch to agents
  • Write queries that grab attention and gain
    representation by top agents
  • Select the most appropriate agent for your project
    and career goals
  • Develop a killer book proposal that leads to a
    lucrative contract
  • Get your idea to finished manuscript quickly with
    a systematic work plan
  • Identify low-cost ways to do proprietary, primary research
  • Discover resources to help you with the steps
    you don’t want to do yourself
  • Polish your writing skills to take your project from
    ho-hum to humdinger
  • Use a 12-step writing process to draft your book
    in 7 to 21 days
