As my friend Anna David says, we’re all in recovery from something and we all have stories to tell.
She would know. She went from drug-addicted dog-walker to sober New York Times bestselling author of six books about her addiction and recovery. Since getting sober, she’s launched recovery websites and written about addiction and relationships recovery for The New York Times, Time, Vice, Psychology Today and The Huffington Post, among many other publications.
She’s the first to admit that she accomplished this not through talent or even hard work but because she followed a system.
And now, during National Recovery Month, she wants to teach her system to you.
Next week, she’s having a free webinar to launch her online course, How to Sell a Book About Your Recovery (From Anything). In it, she walks people through how to figure out their book angle and then how to craft every element a book proposal needs—from the overview to the promotional section to the chapter outline, sample chapters and market analysis section. The final videos for the class teach students how to land an agent who can then sell their book.
I recommend previewing the course here. She explains this in the webinar but if you purchase the course between now and September 15th, you’ll be in the running for a meeting with a top literary agent and publisher.
I’ll be sending out information about how to sign up for her webinar in the next couple days.
