Dreams come true at writers’ conferences!
Attending the 2012 FCWC with a hope in her heart and amateur proposal in hand, Bethany Jett was ecstatic to receive interest from two publishers and two contracts from agents, even though one publisher thought her platform was too small. In the month following the conference, Bethany turned her tiny platform into a huge marketing opportunity—enough to secure the “publisher that got away.”
“Zero to Book Deal” teaches how to build the basics of your platform with business cards, guest blogging, the four most important pages on your website, and more.
Bethany Jett attended her first writers conference with a proposal and a prayer and left with the Writer of the Year award, an agency contract, and interest from multiple publishers.
Three months later, she sold her debut book The Cinderella Rule: a Young Woman’s Guide to Happily Ever After (Revell), which became a Selah Awards finalist.
Bethany is the Founder and Co-Owner of Serious Writer, Inc., and Vice President of Platinum Literary Services where she specializes in marketing, nonfiction proposal creation, ghostwriting, and developmental editing. Her love for marketing and social media led to her pursuing her Master of Fine Arts degree in Communication: New Media and Marketing. She also holds a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Behavioral Social Science and Humanities with a Criminal Justice minor.
Along with her speaking, writing, and graduate studies, Bethany speaks at churches and conferences nationwide at women’s and youth conferences and retreats, and her work has been featured in numerous publications including ChristianityToday.com, Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse Jr., SpiritLedWoman.com, crosswalk.com, SonomaChristianHome.com, ChristianMingle.com, the Rave section of The Orlando Sentinel, and Splickety Publishing Group.
