Learn how you can go from pitch to publishing deal in months, without millions of followers on social media. This is for nonfiction and memoir writers determined to secure a traditional book deal in 2024!

YOU’RE TRYING TO GET A TRADITIONAL PUBLISHING DEAL OR A LITERARY AGENT FOR YOUR MEMOIR OR NONFICTION…

You might have tried a few things like Query Tracker, pitching at conferences, writing an associated essay or article but you’re…

❌ Rejected for ‘lack of platform’

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

❌ Told you need a million followers on Twitter (or TikTok) to get an agent

❌ Thinking you need  big name ghost-writer for your book proposal

❌ Perhaps you HAVE a Literary Agent but they’re rarely in contact

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

I’m here to tell you: It doesn’t need to take you years when you know how the Traditional Publishing industry actually works. This way, you can:

✅ Get your work seen by more people who can accelerate your book deal

✅ Build a buzzing and authentic ‘platform’ (no, it needn’t be on Twitter!) 

✅ Connect with a community of supportive peers who champion you

✅ Earn money and build expertise AS you polish and perfect your book proposal

✅ Get really confident talking to Agents, Publishers and Editors so you know what to ask, and how to navigate your successful publishing career!

IMAGINE what it will feel like to…

  • See your book stocked at your favourite bookshops and libraries, or the deal announced in Publisher’s Weekly
  • Sign a book deal with a Commercial Publisher who champions your work
  • Be published in multiple regions, in different formats… and receive your author copies
  • KNOW your book will have the BEST chance of success because you’re published by those at the top of their game
  • Connect with readers across the world for years to come!

Publishing your first book doesn’t come with a guidebook! In Fast Track Your Book Deal I’m going to show you what I did to…

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

✅  Get 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!

✅ Turn an essay or even a blog post into a book deal – and what most people get wrong in this essential step

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…

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

I love the way you teach. I’m much more confident in my negotiations with my agent since taking The Book Deal Accelerator, I only wish there was a programme like this for fiction!
Kathy Rampsberger, intuitive life coach & author 

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!

THIS IS FOR YOU…

✅ You’ve written a memoir or nonfiction manuscript

✅ You want to be traditionally published and find a literary agent

✅ You know there’s lots to learn about agents, advances, pitching to publishers, and writing a book proposal

THIS IS NOT FOR YOU…

❌ You’re thinking of self-publishing or you’re not sure of the difference between publishing models

❌ You haven’t written any of the memoir or nonfiction draft

❌ You’ve written a fiction draft

❌ You’ve never been published or paid for your writing (you need to be at a certain standard with your nonfiction writing to fast-track your publishing deal)

Hi, I’m Louisa

I’ve been writing, editing, teaching and working in print and digital publishing for over 20 years. I’ve published two of my own books and worked with hundreds of authors, writers, agents and editors across commercial publishing and media.

A little over 5 years ago, when what became my second published 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 in less than 8 months 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!
