Writing a great story is no longer enough to land a contract. With economic downsizing, publishers are extremely selective when it comes to acquiring authors, often allowing their marketing and sales department to have the final say. These days, it takes a platform that is equal to the story in excellence and potential-a complete package-for you and your book to make it through the acquisitions gauntlet.

For the first time, fiction authors have a platform reference guide written just for them. Nail It! The Secret to Building an Effective Fiction Writer's Platform uses motivating and enlightening lessons, author interviews, and several examples to explain how to build a fiction writer's platform that will impress publishing professionals and clear a path to success.

"Every author should be devouring this series. I've used these tools to build my burgeoning career. Learn it. Live it." ~Amber Scott, co-author of Dollars & Sense: The Definitive Guide To Self-publishing Success

"Every new author needs to know the tools necessary for successful promotion. Nail It! has the whole kit and kaboodle." ~Meg Mims, author of Double Crossing, Astraea Press, August 2011
