Future Bestseller with outline (2).png

Ready to turn your unique story and expertise into a non-fiction book?


It all starts with writing a stellar book proposal that will land you a literary agent and ultimately a publishing deal. An effective book proposal is the business plan for your book. Bestselling author and media executive Fran Hauser and four-time New York Times bestselling collaborative writer Jodi Lipper have created an intimate, hands-on workshop to guide you every step of the way.

Using the tools you’ll learn in this workshop, Fran Hauser was able to get a “major” publishing deal for her first book, The Myth of the Nice Girl, with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and turn that book into a national bestseller. Her writing partner, Jodi Lipper, has written more than a dozen book proposals that have each earned six-or-seven figure advances, and she has collaborated on twenty published books, including four New York Times bestsellers.

A week after attending the workshop I signed with a top agent and within a few months I landed a publishing deal for my first book! The advice and tools from Fran and Jodi were invaluable. I highly recommend their workshop.”
