Wanted: Book on Writing a Book Proposal
« on: February 19, 2006, 11:52:29 PM »
Hi,

Anyone tried Terry Whalin's "Book Proposals that Sell"? I got a rather rude reply from the great man to my query:-


Noel,
 
The ebook comes with a money back guarantee--and extras--and it's cheap for typical ebooks which cost even more. Want me to price it even higher? Say $39.95--just for you? The ebook comes instantly--not weeks later--another reason for the higher price. It's a reasonable $19.95--still a great value from my perspective and I've worked in the book industry for over 20 years.
 
The hard copy does not include postage to India or overseas. Only within the United States (not even Canada).
 
Best,
 
Terry

Dear Sirs,

Would you kindly let me know why the ebook is more expensive
(USD19.95) than the hard copy (USD 16.00) which is inclusive of P&P?

Thanks,

In the meantime here are a couple of good books on the subject:
The insider's guide to getting your book published (White Ladder Press) by Rachael Stock
The Writer's Journey (Firefly Media) by Julia McCutchen
I've read both and was impressed with each in a different way.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, Karina. I have'nt heard of these writers but knowing that you have a book contract, lends credibility to these books! :)
