Getting started

Clarifying your ideas through the Book Proposal document


Keeping it professional

Authority and authorship: warnings and reminders


The world of Publishing

Traditional, indie and assisted publishing models


One hour consultation

Via phone or Skype


This initial month is a no obligation free trial, which allows you to clarify your project goals and discover whether the From Authority to Authorship programme is right for you.


The Book Proposal document will help you understand not just the book itself, but your relationship to it and where it fits into the bigger picture of your professional life and ambitions. Once you’ve completed the document, you’ll have a chance to discuss it with your personal Advisor in a one-to-one session and create the basis for the project you’ll be working on together if you decide to join the programme.


In addition, as you start your journey to becoming a published author, you’ll receive background documentation about the publishing industry and different publishing models, explaining where you and the From Authority to Authorship programme fit in this long professional tradition.


If you sign up for the full From Authority to Authorship programme, for the next five months, you will have monthly one-to-one sessions with your personal Advisor. These hour-long sessions give you the chance to discuss issues that have arisen as you progress with your writing, or other specific aspects of your book project. You will also receive further documentation – by email and available through your personal profile page on the system – to help you focus and keep you on track to complete your manuscript by the end of the programme.
