Don't make the same mistakes 99%of all first-time authors make. Learn the "secret knock" that makes literary agents and publishers open the door! 


Dear Fellow Writer, 

    Imagine yourself on the balcony of your vacation home overlooking a serene ocean view. The warm tropical breeze floats around you as you type away on your laptop…writing your next bestseller.  Every once and a while you look up and consider taking a break for a relaxing swim in the ocean.   

     Just as you reach for the cool drink sitting next to you, your cell phone rings.  “Not now,” you say to no one in particular.  But you look at the caller ID.  Hmmm, it’s your literary agent.  She knows you’re working and wouldn’t call unless it’s important.  So you decide to pick up. 

     And it’s a good thing you did.  She’s faxing over the details of a deal to make your last novel into a movie!  Whew…you’ve come a long way…from an unpublished, unknown writer to the next big thing on the literary scene. 

     Sound too good to be true?  Well, these types of scenes happen every day.  Your dream of being a successful author can come true.  All it takes is a few key ingredients.
A great manuscript The guts to make it happen Inside information to help you get your first book published

      Once you have the first two elements, that’s when I come in.   

       Getting Your Book Published          Doesn’t Take a Miracle 

     I know, I know…the image of the struggling writer is so ingrained in your head.  How many times have you read that being rejected is a part of being a writer?  You must pay your dues before you achieve success.
But how many dues are you supposed to pay? How many years are you expected to struggle?  Why do some writers hit it big right away while others have a stack of rejection letters a mile-high?   

     Some may say it’s the quality of the manuscript.  You may think only authors who present the most interesting and well-written manuscripts get the honor of Literary Agent representation and seeing their manuscript published.  Only the best authors get public recognition and vindication that they are real writers. 

     If your manuscript fails to attract a Publisher does that mean it’s not any good?  If you’ve had multiple rejections and you’re losing hope does that mean you should give up your dream of being a writer?

And Now for the Surprise… 

     What I am leading to is this… The writers who attract Literary Agents and Get Published are the ones who know how tosell their manuscript.  You may have the Next Big Thing sitting on your shelf but unless you know the secret formula to getting a Literary Agent, it will probably stay there. 

   And yes, there are tons of writers’ resources that supposedly guide you through the process.  But I have never seen a comprehensive guide that gives you everything you need to know.  

     My name is Donna Sozio and I was in your shoes…for so many years.  I spent a year and a half writing my bookbased on an idea I had in the middle of the night.  I knew I had something great.  If only I could convince a Literary Agent to read the manuscript.  I knew I would have an instant bestseller! 

     So I started to read everything I could on how to get published…and believe me there is a lot of information out there.  But nothing seemed to work. 

      I Struggled for 7 Years          Before I Cracked the Code 

     I spent thousands of dollars on writers’ extension classes, writers’ conferences, private coaching, memberships, mentors, publicists, panels and interviews.  And believe me, not one person ever told me what you will find out in my book.  

     After all of my years of research, I never found one source that had all of the information I needed to know.  Trust me, no one will tell you the Secret Rules of Publishing.  They’re like the secret “powder stashes” at a popular ski resort.  The locals do everything to keep them a secret. 

     But get ready for literary success because I’m about to change all that.  After my seven years of research, I finally got it.  And once I cracked the code my results skyrocketed!  

Within 3 weeks of submitting, I received multiple offers from reputable literary agencies!
In another 3 weeks, my manuscript sold to a major book publisher!
A producer then optioned the movie rights!

But Donna, You Make it Sound So Simple!

     Well yes…it is simple.   That’s why I wrote The Secret Rules of Publishing:  What Every First-Time Author Needs to Know.

     Whether you’ve written a romance novel, an action-packed novel, a non-fiction book, a children’s book or maybe you’re still working on your manuscript, it doesn’t matter.  If you follow my simple system, you’ll dramatically boost your chances of getting a Literary Agent and getting your manuscript Published.

But Don’t Take My Word For It, See What Other Successful Authors Have to Say 

Donna’s eCourse covers both the practical and emotional aspects of submitting to literary agents.  Her unique ability to combine the individuality and substance of each author’s message with a marketing plan to back it up is a recipe for success.  I suggest authors read it before finishing their manuscript.  It can make difference whether or not a book sells.

Assertiveness, productivity, courage, smart marketing, and clarity.  These are just a few of the attributes Donna gives writers to add to their arsenal.  She cuts right to the chase with her language and know-how like your very own “personal coach” in a book.  Ready, get set, Go!

I Also Received Letters From Delighted Writers

“Dear Donna,
I just wrote a collection of short stories.  Everyone told me how good they are and how I should find a literary agent but I didn’t know even the first step to take.  This book made it clear.  Now, I know what to do.  I know how to maintain the integrity of my book while “sell” it to agents. 
William S., Costa Mesa, CA”

Before reading your eCourse, I had no idea just how much I was getting in my own way while trying to get published.  I would always procrastinate and then get down on myself for not following through.  Reading your chapter on the “Submission Olympics” got me going.  I’ve now submitted to over 45 agents and as your book taught me… I’m expecting the best!  Your book pulled me out of my rut and put me into action.  I’ve never felt better about being a writer.  I had to write to thank you! 
Sandy K., Austin, TX”

“Hi Donna!
I’m finally doing what I’ve only been talking about for years!  I’ve actually rewritten the query letter for my novel.  It’s light years more marketable than what I previously had.
As I read your book the light bulb went off inside my head.  Although I work in marketing I never thought about actually applying what I know to sell my own book.  Sometimes it takes someone else to point out the million-dollar idea staring you in the face.  What’s best is that you showed me how to use the sincerity of my book’s own message to get an agent’s attention. 
Thanks again,
Linda V., Seattle, WA”
