Many of us draft our book and then try to craft a pitch/blurb that makes the story sound as fabulous as we believe it to be. But have you ever found yourself trying so hard to make the elements of your book sound sellable and you just wish the agent/editor could read your entire book first? Then they would know how great it is.

Except, that’s not how publishing works. And whether your plan is to pitch agents/editors or self-publish, having a book that screams “READ ME” is the key to selling and capturing readers. And yes, you can always craft a strong blurb, but a good blurb doesn’t account for a book that fails to connect to your reader once they dive in. A good blurb doesn’t help if it’s misleading, or once an agent sees the synopsis proves the story fizzles out.

Plus, wouldn’t it be great if you had a way to validate your book idea BEFORE your started writing (or at least before revising without knowing why or what you are revising)?

In this 60 min live workshop, developmental editor and book coach, Katie McCoach, leads writers through systems that will validate your book idea so you aren’t wandering around with a complete manuscript realizing it’s not attracting agents or readers and you need to rewrite the entire darn thing again.

Katie is an excellent instructor! I can see why she is such a great Book Coach. She modified and added detail to the course on the fly to accommodate questions throughout the class. The information was useful for idea formation, clarification, and contained broader publishing advice. It was a fun and informative class.
Validate Your Book was an excellent presentation. I loved the interactive group setting, almost like being there. Katie offered new information with confidence and style. Thanks
Wonderful presentation with great information! Instructor made the topic easy to understand in three separate 'waves.' Thank you for the class!
Good usable and applicable information that I can use in my writing process. Thank you.
Excellent and informative class. Katie McCoach presented the class very efficiently and helpfully. I liked her idea of writing the blurb and the synopsis before the story. A synopsis is easier to write when you don't have a whole book written. it's easier to summarize when you don't have a finished product. Great idea!
A fount of knowledge and fast talking=perfection! Thank you for taking the time to answer all our questions!
