Dear Friend,

I know what it feels like to have a book idea but no clue how to write a book proposal that has a real chance of getting noticed by a publisher. And I know how daunting it feels to try to figure out all of the publishing mysteries on your own. 

When people call me a #1 New York Times bestselling author, they probably don’t realize the years of rejection I walked through while trying to learn how to write a book proposal.

I don’t want you to waste years or your best energy on things that don’t move you closer to your goals.

And this is why I want to fill in what seems to be missing for most potential authors: an expert teacher to train you (that’s me!), a peer group for support, a writing coach to give you helpful feedback,  an agent to guide you through the process and a real shot at getting considered by a publisher.

It has been one of the greatest joys of my writing career to have Thomas Nelson give me a COMPEL book line so we can help them find authors who should get book contracts! And I instantly thought of you … my friends who have great ideas and a desire to put in the work necessary to shape that idea into a real book that will make a real difference in your readers’ lives.

I want to encourage you to really consider applying to the Book Proposal Bootcamp. There’s no financial cost to apply. And if your idea isn’t ready, we’ll be honest with you. But you’ll never know unless you try.

I’m cheering you on!
Lysa TerKeurst
