Monday, February 5 and Monday, February 12, 2024 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. (EST)/3:30 to 5 p.m. (PT). Why is it that incredibly talented writers struggle to create a compelling book proposal? How does a new writer stand out in a seemingly-saturated market? What are the key details that storytellers miss in their sales pitch? In this two-part class, Jillian Abby will share her proven book proposal outline, strategies to stand out in the virtual stack of submissions, and the top things that writers miss in selling their story. Participants will then return the following week for a real-time working session to ask questions and get feedback on their hook, market analysis, and more.
Class Start: Monday, February 5, 2024 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. (EST)/3:30 to 5 p.m. (PT) for 2 weeks.

About the Instructor
Jillian Abby spends a disproportionate amount of time chasing around her two children to try and get them to eat a well-balanced meal and use soap when washing their hands. They don’t seem to care that she’s an award-winning writer and serial entrepreneur whose debut memoir,Perfectly Queer, has been published by Hay House divisions in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. Someday they might learn that she transformed the knowledge from her Boston University business education and her experience as a CPA, licensed massage therapist, craft beer bar owner, and TikTok mini-star, into a unique writing and consulting business that has helped other talented authors get noticed. In the meantime, while they may not yet appreciate the work she does through her non-profit Tampa Bay Homeschool Inclusive Events, they’ll continue to savor the fact that they can always beat her at Mario Kart.
