How to Get a Book Deal

My friend Cal Newport, with whom I am collaborating on a new writing project, has a post on his blog titled, "How to Get a Book Deal: Lessons From My Adventures in the World of Non-Fiction Publishing." Cal is a successful multi-book author and has a great perspective on things, especially if you’re young. His steps:

  1. Don’t write the book first.
  2. Become a non-bad writer.
  3. Identify a first-timer compatible idea.
  4. Pitch the right agent.
  5. Practice proposal yoga.
