“What Could Happen to YOUR Success as an Author
if You Had an Exceptionally Qualified Mentor?”
If you’re an author or hope to become one, this is your chance to finally get some candid, practical, specific advice about your book from your new “friend in the business.”
Do you want some real-time, up-to-date, specialized help figuring out how to get your book project moving in the right direction? The most successful people in any industry, sport or endeavor have coaches. This is your opportunity to get a seasoned, compassionate and knowledgeable literary agent to be that supportive coach for you.
Wendy Keller has been a literary agent since 1989. In that time, she’s changed with the publishing industry. Keller Media, Inc. has sold more than 1,200 rights deals worldwide; has 16 New York Times best sellers; and 6 international best sellers. That’s a lot of experience and knowledge you can put at your disposal.
When you talk with Wendy for an hour, she’ll help you get pointed in the right direction, clear about the obstacles in your path and create a plan for overcoming them that really works.
Solving Your Biggest Challenge
The publishing industry has changed a lot. There are new rules. Most things well-meaning people tell you to do or not to do to achieve success in the brave new publishing world are outdated or useless. How can you succeed without real data? You cannot.
Most agents represent only about 1% of all titles they are offered annually. Most editors acquire only about 20 books per year from the hundreds they are offered. All publishers want to make money. Prove that your book can be profitable and all these people will go wild for it, every time. Wendy will show you how to make your book more appealing fast.
About 1.4 million new books were published last year, but the average self-published book sells only 117 copies! That’s because few authors take the time to build an enthusiastic fan base before they rush to press. The downside? A “failed” self-published book is a concrete block tied around the author’s neck when they try to swim over to traditional publishing. Luckily, it’s rarely too late to save sagging sales. Wendy can help you avoid this fate and mastermind a strategy that will help your book become more successful quickly – whether you choose to self-publish or go with a fancy New York publisher.
In the days of Hemingway and Twain, authors had months or even years for their books to become successful. Now, if you don’t launch on Day One with a strong marketing campaign, no matter how you published your book is quite likely to get drowned in the tsunami of words published daily. If your book just released or will soon, you need the absolute smartest techniques and strategies to attract media, get noticed and delight book buyers. Wendy can help you by sharing the techniques her most successful clients use.
“I’ve seen people work so hard writing a book or a book proposal but then hit a brick wall when trying to get an agent, a publisher or the public to pay attention. It doesn’t have to be that way! I know how to help you leap over brick walls in a single bound!” — Wendy Keller
It’s tradition for literary agents to sit at their desks and sneer at groveling hopeful authors. Agents are eager to deal with only the most qualified, successful and prepared authors – people with huge platforms and big support teams. That doesn’t seem fair. How does someone get to that place if no one will be kind enough to show them the way? Wendy Keller offers emerging authors the chance to “rent” her brain for an hour with the specific intention of leveling the playing field for you…and with the hope that when you apply what you’ll gain from this coaching call with her, you will become one of Keller Media’s successful authors.
“Wendy Keller offered me keen insights for the marketing and promotion of my book “Whatever the Cost” and clearly supported the book’s success. She has a unique and well-honed understanding of the publishing world that takes into account the art of being a writer and the business of selling books. Her time and insight are indispensable.” — Jenifer Beaudean, author
Maybe you’re asking, “Why isn’t it enough that I wrote a good book?”
Gosh, we wish it was! When this agency began, content ruled. Every good book got sold. Now editors invariably ask the agent, “What’s the author’s platform?” before they’ll even listen to our pitch for your nonfiction book! Consumers spend less money on books these days, so publishers have less money to throw around. Your book is now a micro-business investment that must earn a profit. Your proof of concept is your growing fan base – your “platform” – as an author. Without it, your book is just too much of a risk. Build a platform, sell your book. That’s the whole game of publishing – even if you intend to self-publish.
You need a smart plan, a clear strategy, an effective system for success that is customized to YOUR goals and YOUR content.
You need a bigger perspective and solid, real-world advice on your book.
That’s what you will get when you rent Wendy’s brain.
This investment in the glorious future of your book is guaranteed to get you the results you crave.
