If you’re ready to put a book proposal together, if you’re looking for an agent, if you have an idea and you want to get it out there, try this program.”
Vision. Strategy. Creativity. Visibility (this isn’t me being clever…these are the modules. swoon.)
Danielle and Linda lead the way with their abundant experience and complementary perspectives and invite some seriously heavy hitters from the industry to the table. In reading YBBBP, I felt like I had sidled up to the sleek Boardroom table in a Herman Miller chair and was invited to soak up the wisdom, revel in the anecdotes and release any questions fluttering around in my chest about writing a book plan (and in fact, a BOOK, period).
They put it alllll on the table. From “script-your-success idea” to making the decision to go traditional or self-pub route; from wooing your agent to leaning into your strengths; from hook pages to de-icking “platform”; from reveling in rejection to how your VA can pinch-hit for a publicist; from expectations management to stoking the fire of your vision, YBBBP has your gorgeous Author’s Ass COVERED.
It’s a rich buffet of ideas, tools and resources, delivered with soulful practicality and sizzling pragmatism.”
YBBBP blows away all of our preconceived ideas of what it means to be an author. It is not just a how-to book manual, it’s a manifesto + live action heroes + real examples + you, yes you.
I’m writing my first book proposal, so YBBBP is tear-jerkingly on time for me. Not only did I very quickly realize that I was starting with my ass end first, but there was NO TIME TO BITCH ABOUT IT. Danielle and Linda clearly define the action steps–from each blade of grass to the mountain top–to get me on the bestseller list and speaking to thousands, not hundreds. Ready to join me? C’mon. Gitty up.”
With ease and elegance Danielle + Linda make the mysterious do-able. They make the complex simple without being simplistic (a rare talent). You can tell right away they know their stuff, they’ve been there, done that and they will light the way so you can follow in their high heeled steps. YBBBP is blow-you-away, badass and bountiful. This ain’t no fluff, this is real and righteous.”
Staggering. A room of your ten best friends, and eight of them yearn to see a book with their name on it, beaming from the bookshelf. Yearning for credibility… status… achievement… completion.
I’m one of those eight people, damn straight. And if you’re reading this, chances are, you are, too.
I had the privilege of helping to curate + create YOUR BIG BEAUTIFUL BOOK PLAN, and it was thrilling to see it evolve from ‘a helpful how-to’ into the definitive guide to crafting your book, securing your publishing allies, and elevating your writing career.
Will this program serve your literary ambitions? Uh, absolutely. Am I biased? Maybe a little. But I can shelve my personal pride in seeing this beautiful baby launched long enough to say: this is the program 81% of us have been waiting for.
Get with the program. And write. NOW.”
As I read other people’s stories, experiences and journeys with their books, I was able to visualize my own experience. The insight into the industry, the journey and hard work involved… I can’t wait to be a part of it! I’m rock solid, restless and ready to go!"
YBBBP really opened my eyes to the actual selling of a book! I loved the little boxes of insight from Danielle and Linda. They show you what normally works, as well as showcasing people who break all the rules. The samples are key- I loved the variety of examples of successful pitches. They are all so different, showing that we can really be ourselves when pitching our books.
I now have a finished book proposal ready and have started 2012 with a bang. The next time you hear from me, we’ll have an agent, and after that we’ll have a book deal!"
If you are a writer, are thinking of writing, if you have a book in you…YOU must get Your Big Beautiful Book Plan created by Danielle LaPorte and Linda Silversten.
This is the best resource on writing a book proposal and plan that I have ever seen (and I have read a lot them!). I am so proud to be able to offer this product to you! It will make you want to stay up all night and write, write, write. And get your ducks in a row to get your beloved writing published and read!"
What an honor to work with both these wonderful women–Linda: You are Heaven on Earth. You believe in me. I can do it.
Danielle: You are fire. You ignite. You give permission."

this morning i’m grateful for the amazing work Danielle LaPorte puts out into the world. (and the person that sent me her new course as a gift!)
two years ago a literary agent accepted my query and offered to represent me. i developed cold feet and decided i “wasn’t ready.” i don’t regret that decision, because my feelings were genuine (although probably steeped in more fear than was necessary), but now i sit here hoping i didn’t pass up a once in a lifetime opportunity. hmm… it’s never too late, keep moving forward…”

“This is part of the email I received from my YBBBP partner shortly after I connected with you:
“Who thought this book thing would just be WAY more then a just a “BOOK THING” – but a journey into the core of what we’re really here to do?!!”
