Free Webinar Offered by Publishing Veteran Terry Whalin

I often recommend Terry Whalin's book on writing book proposals for those who want a more indepth look at proposals than my little booklet The Great First Impression Book Proposal ( or  BOOK PROPOSALS THAT SELL, 21 SECRETS TO SPEED YOUR SUCCESS,.  I met him when we both spoke at the Erma Bombeck Workshop at Dayton University in Dayton, Ohio. I trust him and look! Here he is with a free Webinar. And a FREE e-book for participating! I'm pasting his release below.

Publishing Expert W. Terry Whalin will answer questions about book proposal creation or proposal marketing in a free live 70-minute telewebcast on Tuesday, February 22, 2010 at 4 p.m.. PST or 7 p.m. EST. Anyone can ask a question at:  and register for the free teleseminar.

More than 83% of Americans plan to write a book in their lifetime yet literary agents and publishers do not read manuscripts. They read book proposals. A former acquisitions editor and former literary agent, Whalin wrote the best-selling title, Book Proposals That Sell, 21 Secrets To Speed Your Success which has over 95 Five Star reviews on Amazon. Yet Book Proposals That Sell was written seven years ago and has not been revised. Since that book, Whalin spent three years as the fiction acquisitions editor at Howard Books. The author of over 60 books including Jumpstart Your Publishing Dreams, Whalin is a popular speaker at conferences.

Every registrant to the teleseminar receives a free Ebook from Whalin: Acceptance or Rejection?, 5 Strategies That Make a Difference. Besides answering questions about book proposals, Whalin is introducing a 12-week step-by-step course on how to write a book proposal at:

“My goal is to help writers achieve their publishing dreams and get the literary agent or editor they want to publish their book. It begins with an excellent proposal,” Whalin explained.

The teleseminar will be recorded and every registrant will receive access to the replay links which can be downloaded to a computer or iPod. After the teleseminar, the site will remain to answer authors’ questions about book proposals and they can instantly access the recording.

The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.
