CLAUDIA WITTMANN’S Explore & Navigate Sessions
You know who you are and have an idea and a million thoughts about what you want to offer – but you’re not sure what to do next.
Or you’ve got an outstanding idea, but you’re not sure how to take it to the next level.
Is this you?
• Thinking about offering your new book to a commissioning editor or a publishing house or submitting your manuscript idea to an agent and wish to protect and explore the rights to your literary work from the very beginning but want an honest opinion before you go ahead.
• Overwhelmed by how to implement your great bookish idea into an intriguing pitch or submission.
• Seeking help to take away your fear of legalities, international negotiations or of accepting a third-party agreement you cannot fully understand or agree with.
• Running out of ideas and out of time to get your online publishing business off the ground.
• Juggling every single aspect of your writing and publishing adventure on your own, including sales, marketing, growth, acquisition, pre-press – and need a trusted ally to grow your business long-term.
• Needing help promoting and marketing your book idea and/or manuscript in the rapidly changing offline and online publishing marketplace and on a global scale.
• Fed-up with the “way we’ve always done it” and thinking about getting more known…dare I say, famous.
• Communicating open and honest and can keep things 100% secure and confidential.
• Want to grow, expand or transform your own business? You’ve come to the right place.
Your Explore & Navigate Session includes
Custom review of your situation
I cut to the chase and tell you straight what you need to change today to make the right next steps towards your goal. I’ll reverse engineer where you want to be to get you started right now. Not sure how to approach and talk to publishing houses, agents or service providers? I’ll give you the tools and language to communicate effectively.
How it works
My session is held via E-Mail Consulting or Zoom video. Before our session, you’ll be sent a comprehensive questionnaire and I’ll spend the rest mostly jamming on my own. My review will be posted to you in PDF, you’ll receive strategic recommendations and actionable plans. You’ll end up with more clarity and better focus on how to get the right people to say ‘Yes’.
How much time do we need together?
It depends! Before I lay my eyes on your Q, your idea or copy, it’s hard to say.
Does it need polishing or a head-to-toe revamp?
Whether it’s one page of your web copy, one book manuscript or a full catalogue, it can take a couple of hours, or it can take a full day.
Then again, sometimes a single Super Power Hour is all you need.
If you’re a new client: Start with a Super Power Hour and we’ll go from there.
Choose a package and book your session.
