New! Updated and Revised 2017 Edition

provisional patent guideIncluding my exclusive “3D” method for writing a provisional patent and my technique for shifting from “inventor” thinking to “patent attorney”-style thinking.


Dear Inventor,

Your invention is important to you. Doesn’t it deserve the best provisional application you can write?

In a perfect world, you’d have the money and time to hire a patent attorney to draft and file your provisional application. But, we don’t live in perfect world.

I understand that.

Situations come up, funds are limited and time is tight. You need a good provisional application, and you need it fast and cheap.

I wrote The Inventor’s Guide to Writing Provisional Patent Applications with you in mind.

In my years of practice, I’ve seen provisional applications written by inventors. Some of the applications were OK, but unfortunately many were not. In some cases, a provisional application did not provide any protection at all, because it did not meet the requirements.

If you are going through all the trouble to write, file and pay the filing fee for a provisional application, then you might as well put something decent on file.

You’ve invested time and energy (and maybe even money) in your invention. If you need to write your own provisional application, doesn’t it make sense to invest a little to learn how to write the best provisional application you can?

Don’t risk your potential future patent rights by not taking a little time to get the basics of provisional application writing down. If you are not using an experienced patent attorney or agent, then you must learn how to write a provisional application.

My guide will teach you how to write a patent that complies with U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) rules and procedures.

Without some kind of guide, you may omit something important or include something you shouldn’t. Don’t take that chance.

In my guide, you’ll learn:

The two parts required in a provisional patent application If you leave one or both out, your application will not be effective.

What a provisional patent application looks like  I give you a simple example that you can study and use as a reference

How to find example provisionals on file with the Patent Office For inventions in the same area of technology as your invention.

Two questions you must answer in your provisional application. These two questions help you meet the requirements.

Why you don’t need to “write like a lawyer.” And why doing so may hurt your application

What to leave out (that many inventors include)

The purpose of a provisional application and how to make the most of it for your invention.

Using my guide is easy and fast. Put it to use in minutes – not hours. I get to the point and give you just what you need to know. Not a bunch of fluff. 

Don’t take my word for it, see what an inventor has to say about my guide:

“This book provides you everything you need to know for filing a provisional patent application…..all the information in the book is clear, concise, and direct. It allows the common person to take an idea and develop it in to an official provisional patent application without having to be a patent lawyer.”
