YOU’VE TRIED TO GET A BOOK DEAL BUT IT’S NOT WORKING…

You’ve written a non-fiction manuscript (memoir, self-help, how-to, business) – BUT you’re…

❌ Getting rejected for ‘lack of platform’

❌ Told ‘books on XXX aren’t selling right now’

❌ Told that you need a million followers to get an agent

❌ Workshopping and critiquing and editing your work so much that you’re starting to hate it

❌ Perhaps you HAVE an agent but they ghost you for months on end

❌ Losing faith that you will ever crack the traditional publishing industry

I’m here to tell you: You do NOT need a million (or even a thousand) followers. You need to learn how things actually work in publishing, so you can

✅ Get your work seen by the people who matter

✅ Successfully pitch a story that will build your platform

✅ Grow a literary community of supportive peers

✅ Earn money as you polish and perfect your book proposal

✅ Build your confidence as a writer so you know when to walk from a bad offer!

IMAGINE what it will feel like to…

  • See your book stocked at your favourite bookshops around the world…
  • Sign a book deal with a publisher you know will do a beautiful job with your book
  • View the first cover designs and have your breath taken away
  • KNOW your book will have the BEST chance of success being edited, marketed, sold and distributed by those at the top of their game
  • Connect with readers across the world who chanced upon your book because traditional publishing = excellent distribution!

AND you’ve created an everlasting legacy – something that will live beyond you!
Let go of the years of doubt that came from rejection, and finally step into your new reality as a published author.

ENROL TODAY AND GET STARTED IN MINUTES!

I’ve wanted to create this program since 2018, when my second nonfiction book was published (now a bestseller in three continents, and produced as an audio production with Blackstone Publishing). In this program I’m going to show you what I did to…

✅ Secure a lucrative book deal without platform, fame or ‘connections’

✅  Gain the confidence to know a GREAT deal rather than sign with the first agent or publisher who expresses interest in your work

✅ Maximise every single connection and publication to ensure both the best deal for you AND that your book sells when it comes out!

✅ Earn while you learn: get articles, essays, and stories published in paid outlets to build buzz for your book

Every famous artist started as an unknown: Let’s get your work in front of the right people & set you up for success in the Book Deal Accelerator.

HERE’S HOW YOU SKIP THE TEN-YEAR WAIT FOR A NONFICTION BOOK DEAL

First, you clean up your digital presence and set your digital foundations up correctly – whether that’s one social media channel, or a blog, or a website. Avoid the common mistakes and ramp up your visibility and literary connections with this step alone.
Then, learn the most crucial aspect of your book deal strategy: finding, growing, connecting with and speaking to your audience. Who is your audience? We clarify this in module 1!
Once you know your audience, you get some stories published, and you follow the process to amplify and accelerate the reach of every published piece. Dealing with agents, editors and publishers can be both exciting and confusing, so you’ll have professional guidance from someone who has been there every step of the way.
The traditional publishing world is – quite frankly – intense. If you want to know how to empower yourself as a writer and get yourself a good book deal, you need to learn how it works. I teach you everything I’ve learned over 20+ years of writing for publication in the Book Deal Accelerator.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What’s great about working with Louisa is that she can see possibilities for you that you can’t see because you’re too close to it all. She incorporates book publicity and author know-how with online marketing which is a really unique combination. The whole plan was so brilliant. Louisa came up with a GENIUS marketing strategy to promote my upcoming book launch and online business both at the same time.

Mary Adkins, author of When You Read This, Privilege and Palm Beach

If you’ve never experienced it before, publishing can seem like an enigma, the sort of industry that’s closed to all but insiders. Louisa knows traditional publishing, both as an author and from the back end where agents, editors and sales teams operate. She has a knack for coming up with new ways to ensure your manuscript gets in front of the right people so you can secure a book deal.

Carrie Hutchinson, Author, Editor & Ghostwriter

I have known Louisa for 18 years. She is an amazing writer and interviewer, uncannily perceptive with a gift for nuanced observation. That, blended with her media and publishing industry savviness, makes her formidable.

Mystic Medusa, astrologer & author of dozens of books

Your plan was brilliant, and thanks to the simplicity of it all, I got my book to the publisher on time. Thanks Louisa!

Karina Machado, author of Spirit Sisters, Where Spirits Dwell and Love Never Dies

I engaged Louisa for a very technical book project at a tight turn around. As well as delivering to the time-frame, Louisa made some suggestions that, when implemented, improved the book and the project as a whole. I then hired her for a further four book projects, and would not hesitate to recommend her work.

Kelly Exeter, Editor, Ghostwriter & CEO of Swish Publishing

Louisa is one of those rare writers who is always researching and searching for a better way to do things – her passion for creating online offers that convert is second to none! Louisa reviewed different assets for my online course business and her great eye for detail meant that she not only spotted gaps and inconsistencies, but also made lots of valuable suggestions for improvement.

What would it mean for you to finally get a book deal…?

If you’re currently workshopping your book proposal… re-writing your manuscript… waiting months to hear back from an MIA agent or worse, sending pitches out into the void and unsure whether you’re even querying properly… you are wasting precious time!

How much would it be worth for you to get moving on this dream in MONTHS rather than years (or never at all)? A book deal is a big deal, and publishing is forever. Hope is not a strategy and you need to be educated and informed so you can get the best deal possible.

You might only write one book in your life. Don’t you want to give it the best chance of success?

Even if you get a small advance over no advance at all, this program is worth your time. And if you use even one of the strategies in the first MODULE you could quadruple that advance PLUS get paid handsomely to build your platform as you pitch your book. All these things ensure your great success when your book comes OUT, too!
If you don’t have a proven strategy for your book deal and you don’t have a mentor in your corner, traditional publishing can be a brutally hard nut to crack.

Let me help you get set for success with the Book Deal Accelerator.

JOIN TODAY AND GET SET FOR SUCCESS!

Hey, I’m Louisa

I’ve been writing, editing, teaching and working in print and digital publishing for over 20 years.

What you may not know, is that a little over 3 years ago, when what became my second book landed in my lap…I was determined to ink a book deal before I wrote the manuscript. I developed a system and a strategy and it empowered me to get the best deal possible for my book and I can show you how to do it too.

There’s nothing as fulfilling as seeing your life’s work and legacy out there in the world with the best chance of success.  The traditional publishing industry is tricky & cut-throat, but you CAN succeed!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Will you introduce me to an agent or publisher as part of the program? 

    No. There are thousands of agents and publishers out there. What I’m going to do is akin to teaching you to fish Vs giving you a meal. I’m going to teach you how to find the BEST agent, publishing house or editor for your book and make it the best deal for you.

  • How long is program access?

    You get lifetime access to the digital modules & the private Facebook Community, so as long as Kajabi & Facebook exist, you get access.

  • What if I’m not sure whether I want to self-publish or not?

    Then this ISN’T the program for you. This is a specific program for writers who want to be traditionally-published authors.

  • Should I join The Book Deal Accelerator if I am trying to sell a fiction novel? 

    No. The strategy is very different, don’t join this program if you are trying to sell your fiction novel.

  • “I’ve had an offer already from an agent / publisher / editor…do I still need this program?”

    The traditional publishing industry can be brutal to first-time authors, and there’s so much to learn. Even if you have started liaising with a publisher / agent / editor this program is going to ensure you don’t fall into the common traps for first-time authors and that you get the best possible deal (and biggest success) for your work.
