How To Validate Your Book Idea

Taught by - Leave your thoughts

Start this course

Only 14 books show up on the first page of Amazon's search results. So wouldn't it be great to start writing your novel knowing you'll be one of those 14 with an audience? Too often authors pour blood and sweat into a book idea without knowing if a market exists for it. But if you're smart about it, you can determine potential revenue, take stock of your competition on Amazon, and discover a successful idea for your book — all before you put down a word.

Book idea validation is that process. In this 10-part course, Dave Chesson will show you a proven method for maximizing discoverability and generating sales through Amazon rankings. You'll gain the solid numbers to back up your book idea. And most importantly, you can start writing your novel knowing that others will be excited to read it.
