LONDON, January 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
New services from the Harry Potter books publisher set to make more book writing dreams come true
Writing a book is the dream of millions of people - yet it is a daunting prospect often doomed to failure. Less than one per cent of books are ever published and, every year, thousands of very good manuscripts are rejected.
The publisher behind the Harry Potter books is making life much easier by rolling-out a step-by-step online guide to getting published. The new Writers and Artists website from Bloomsbury clearly segments the writing journey into four steps and offers expert advice to propel new writers from initial idea through to finished manuscript and ultimately, for the few, to fame.
The entry point product from Writers and Artists is an initial review of the idea for a book by an editor and an agent costing only £99.99 (excl. VAT) called 'How Strong Is Your Book Idea?'. It is the first time that writers are being offered professional feedback in the early stage of their writing journey.
By simply submitting a synopsis and a sample chapter of their work on http://www.writersandartists.co.uk, writers will have editorial and marketing experts evaluate their book idea in just two weeks and provide advice on whether the idea is strong enough to appeal to a publisher or agent.
"We've responded to the needs of the market by creating simple bespoke services to help and support creative spirits from the early stages of the writing process through to the publishing and promoting phase" explains Eela Devani, Writers' & Artists' Product Director. "We have spent over 100 years supporting writers and artists with our Yearbook and so this is a natural step for us."
"Writing a book can be a long and lonely process. A clear steer at the beginning of the journey can be a great boost, so being able to discuss your book idea with people who understand how the business works is invaluable."said Man Booker shortlisted Bloomsbury author Stephen Kelman.
How Strong Is Your Book Idea' features in the first stage of the writers' journey outlined in the new Writers and Artists website just aunched. http://writersandartists.co.uk/ .
