In "The Author Training Manual," expert editor and book coach Nina Amir reveals the exact process successful authors have used to create business plans and proposals for their books and teaches you how to view your ideas through the eyes of acquisitions editors and literary agents.

Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, plan to traditionally publish or self-publish, "The Author Training Manual" provides you with the tools you need to achieve your goals and become the author publishers want. Inside you'll find concrete steps, evaluations, sample business plans, in-depth training activities, editor and agent commentaries, and much more--all designed to help you stand out, from the slush pile to the shelf.


My Review:
 An ultimate dream of mine is to one day write children's books. I myself have a had a hard time finding the information to even try to accomplish this goal. Nina Amir, sensed a need for a book that is all inclusive for anyone to achieve this goal whether they are wanted to get published or have had a hard time getting published.

 But with that being said, anyone could learn a thing or two from this manual. She assists you from all angles whether you want to self publish or your desire is to go to a publishing house, this manual can help. The manual has three major components that it addresses,I have outlined them below:

Manual: Provided for teaching not writing exactly but how to be more effective overall.
Samples: Through the samples provided you can learn learn more about proposals and how to properly submit them.
Training Exercises: Exercises, evaluations, and questions used to accompany whats in the manual, to give you a road map to achieve your goals.

Many times, alot of us will not reach these goals without mentors. Thats why its very important for those in the business come along side to teach us and show us the way to our dream.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to free of charge for my honest review from the publisher.
