Build on the knowledge and confidence it takes to succeed at the business side of being an author. Understand how and where books are sold, how to negotiate your way to success, what it takes to get your book into media, and more.
Have you ever walked through a bookshop, taken a look at the bestsellers on display, and thought "What separates these books from mine?"
If you have a manuscript that you know is as important, meaningful and as compelling as any bestseller, and yet you're having trouble getting publishers to even acknowledge your work, then we're here to help.
In Pitch, Publish, Sell, we are opening the hood on our 30+ years experience as a traditional publishing house to let you in on how books are actually pitched, marketed, promoted and sold in today's world.
From getting accepted by a reputable publisher, dealing with contracts, achieving mainstream media coverage, to working with bookstores and online retailers, this is your crash course on how to confidently navigate the world of professional publishing.
Exisle Publishing was founded in the early 1990s with the mission of giving a voice to writers whom the mainstream often overlooked. Ironically, we've since become something of a mainstream publisher ourselves, with branches in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and United Kingdom, and a successful children's imprint, EK Books.
Despite our global success, we haven't forgotten our roots and our mission. With Exisle Academy we want to guide people who have a message to share, but may not yet have the knowledge, experience and industry contacts to make their book the success it deserves to be.
Isabelle Duff joined Exisle Academy because she had a story to tell, but needed help finding her voice and connecting her story to her audience. Exisle Academy helped Isabelle connect with the core of her message and express her story authentically. Using our network, we were able to introduce her to an illustrator who could bring the images in her mind to life.
After developing the manuscript with Exisle Academy, Isabelle was offered a traditional, royalty-based publishing contract with EK Books. Cookie sold-out its first print run and is already being reprinted. It is currently on bookshelves in schools and libraries across the world.
