Special Event: Is it a Book? Five Ways to Test your Book Idea

February 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MST


Does everyone tell you you should write a book, but you’re not sure where to start? Or maybe… you want to explore publishing, but don’t know if your story could be picked up by a BIG FIVE Publishing House? 

In this special virtual event, hosted by KNOW Women Founder and CEO Sarah Benken Foushee, you’ll meet and hear from two NYC based critically acclaimed authors and best selling book coaches.

In under an hour, Fran Hauser and Bethany Saltman, co-hosts of the podcast BOOKBOUND will show you five ways to test your idea and discover if your idea is right for a book.

Learn from the Experts

As an essayist and researcher her work can be seen in magazines like the New York Magazine, New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Parents, and many others. Her poetry has been published widely in many national journals. 

She is also an authority coach, working with female founders, visionaries, entrepreneurs and creatives on soulful business strategy, thought-partnership, and building their inner + outer authority in the world.
