In this session, CEO, Author and Publisher Annalisa Parent, will pull back the curtain to show exactly what makes a successful expert book.

Many entrepreneurs write and pitch books that never produce the sales or visibility they’d hoped. These writers feel frustrated, never knowing why the book failed to launch.

Many small business owners know they need an expert book to scale their business to the next level, to get the kind of media attention that drives sales– but they don’t know what kind of book, or worse they write the wrong kind of books and don’t get the visibility they want and waste valuable time in the process.

In this session, CEO, Author and Publisher Annalisa Parent, will pull back the curtain to show exactly what makes a successful expert book, and how you can avoid the publishing pitfalls.

Handouts will be provided so you can implement steps and get started right away.


Annalisa Parent helps entrepreneurs to finish, publish and sell their expert books. She is the CEO of Laurel Elite Books, a two-time teacher of the year nominee, and a recipient of the French congressional Medal of Honor.

Annalisa writes for many local, national, and international publications, has written and produced sketches for a Telly-Award winning television show. She has been featured on Huffington Post Live, CBS, PBS, Associated Press and Readers’ Digest, as well as many podcasts and radio programs.

Her expert book “Storytelling for Pantsers: How to Outline and Revise your Novel without an Outline” is a recipient of a 2018 CIPA EVVY Silver award for Best Business Book, and a finalist in the humor category.
