I'm new to posting, but I've been reading posts here for a while.
I really wanted to share something here that has really helped me, in the hope that it helps someone else.
I had a finished non fiction book about women's sport and I was getting absolutely NO WHERE with it. I'd been rejected so many times.
I found out about Wendy Keller after a friend in publishing told me that my book was probably failing because it was a niche market and publishers just wont take any risks right now.
Wendy Keller runs this webinar: 'How To Build Your Platform' www.KellerMedia.com/platform-webinar*and
through that I learned about how to reach out to my target market and build up interest in my book. Wendy doesn't sugar coat anything, but she gives good advice. If you are serious about publishing and are ok with being told the truth about your writing, I would recommend doing that webinar. It goes for 6 weeks and you can do it anywhere you have a web connection.
