Mantle Rock Publishing began five years ago, and a lot has happened since it’s birth. It was a difficult labor, but we finally produced a good company. We feel we’ve made strides in the last five years. Several times we’ve tried new things. Some have flopped and some have remained. That’s what I’m doing now.
Since we began taking proposals, I’ve noticed one thing. A lot of people think they know how to write, but they don’t. I’ve gotten some doozies through the years. With that in mind, I’ve begun writing a class for writers regarding their writing and marketing. Several things happen if you book is not written well.
- You won’t get it published by the larger companies.
- Your sales will be flat.
- You will become disgusted.
Yes, I know. I’ve been there. I have one book out that needs a lot of work. I know it, but I haven’t had time to correct it yet. I’ve seen the mistakes I make and the mistakes of others. I want to help authors have great books. It’s so much easier if you write and format correctly in the beginning. It’s very disheartening when your book doesn’t sell and you believe in it so much.
Fifteen Steps to Improve Book Sells was born a couple of weeks ago. At this time I’m giving three free classes on things to think about with your book. I’m also aware of the cost involved in some of these classes you buy on line. Some are not that good, but I’ve never seen one exactly like I’m writing. At the end of the first three classes, you will be offered the opportunity to purchase the next five classes. They will be more in depth and should help you more with your writing. We’ll be talking about formatting, grammar and punctuation, telling vs showing, and marketing your book. There are more things to include, but I’m working on it. I’d like to have it ready in the next couple of days.
If you are interested in seeing the first three classes, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be glad to add you to the email list.
