Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2006/09/29 - A new book coaching program for both novices and experienced writers is now available from ASL Marketing, Inc. - CoachMyBook.com.
ASL Marketing announces its new online book coaching program, 'How to Write a Book, Build a Platform & Become an Expert', to help beginners, as well as established writers, get the inside information they need to be competitive in today’s book market.
“I have worked in the publishing industry for 18 years, as a ghostwriter and editor,” said Alyson Mead, creator of the program. “Now I find that I can reach a lot more people, and offer the same great advice I give to my hourly clients, at a fraction of the price, if I utilize the Internet.”
How to Write a Book, Build a Platform & Become an Expert is an entirely online program, delivering 2-3 emails each week for a monthly subscription fee (currently $32 per month). Each email contains small and easy-to-manage lessons for recognizing a good idea for a book, organizing your ideas, writing a book proposal, approaching agents, marketing your book, and more. Lessons are interspersed with motivational exercises and large doses of encouragement.
ASL Marketing recognized a strong niche market that was going unfulfilled after reviewing new statistics about the growing desire to write books. According to a report by the Jenkins Group, “81% of the population feels they have a book inside them.”
“Publicity budgets are shrinking,” said Coach My Book Marketing Director Noel Brinkerhoff. “Most authors will need help in building a marketing platform at the same time they’re writing their books. In helping authors to build a platform, we help them, the publishers, and the readers in various niche markets who may be hungering for specialized information.”
For Mead, the rewards of online book coaching are many. She said, “I love people’s stories, and I love working with words. So if I get to help people in the birth of their books, or assist a prospective reader to find a solution to a common problem, I’ve done my job.”
