Are you sure you're ready for publication?

The reason most manuscripts get rejected by agents or readers is not a big mystery: They simply weren't ready for primetime. Perhaps you're on the fence about whether your book is ready for publication and you'd like validation from a pro. Smart thinking. With our Manuscript Evaluation program,  you'll get a 14-point checklist of the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, a thumbs up or down on whether you should pursue publication at this time, and guidance for what to do next.

Navigating the Path to Publishing

Traditional publishing. Self-publishing. Hybrid publishing. Small presses. Independent presses. The publishing industry has grown larger and more confusing over the years, and we know that it can be overwhelming to figure out a publication path that fits your goals and needs. In our self-paced Navigating the Path to Publishing course, we take you through a series of questions to help you narrow down your decision. You'll get a "score card" that you'll utilize throughout the course to get a gut-checked result of where you see your publishing future.

Pitch with confidence

You did it! You wrote a book, revised it, had it beta-read, and polished it to perfection. Now you're chomping at the bit to pitch to agents and publishers and land a publishing deal. You can practically taste victory! We get it, but we also know that there's a lot more to pitching than most writers think. We urge you to slow down and take your time to get the pitch right. After all, you only get one chance to pitch. Our Pitch Track workshop will break down the process in easy-to-follow steps so you can gather your resources, develop your materials,  and prepare a strategy for pitching from a place of strength.
