Thesis to book is dead. Long live research to book!

It is every writer and researcher’s dream to see their work as a book on the shelves of their local book store. However, in the commercial publishing world the days of a simple conversion of your research into a book are long gone. Even academic presses are looking for writers with a ‘platform’ who can deliver sales in the thousands, not the hundreds.

Luckily ideas-based non-fiction is still selling well and manuscripts by researchers with a story to sell are still being sought by publishers.

This workshop will help you analyse your research to find the best-selling book that is hiding in there and plan the steps necessary to turn your best-selling book dream into a reality.
