If you can get a suitable deal with one of them, fine. Remember this wasand there were very few social media books at the time. Before you email me asking how you can get your book idea published or leave a comment here asking the same, read this post.
I could not, and decided to go with an agent. So I am not the person to be emailing about your book idea because all the help I can give you is in this post.
Buffer 1K Shares Note from Mack: Because most of the publishers would explain WHY they turned down the book. If you propose that your book idea will be competing against 5 books that were all written in the mid s, that tells the publisher that your idea is dead, otherwise someone would have written about it in the past 15 years!
Thanks for reading and good luck with your writing! And writing those chapters will give you a great idea of how long it will take you to write the entire book.
I should have been more clear here, your advance is against the money you will make from royalties on the book. For example, if it takes you 3 months to write the first chapter, that could be a big red flag.
This is the best advice I can give you on how to get a book deal. As long as they explain WHY they are saying no, that gives you something to work with when you send it off to the next publisher. This is another good test to prepare you for the process.

This is where it starts to get serious, and we find out if you really want to write a book, or if you are just toying with the idea.

I was pitched on a couple of other book ideas over the next couple of years, but I finally decided that Think Like a Rock Star was the only book I wanted to write. Four years ago I was approached by an editor to write a book on marketing on YouTube.
For me, while a bit disappointing, this was also a big help. The book that no one else could write. And try your best to pick newer titles. You need to figure out what book YOU were meant to write.
