Authors are the CEOs of their books, and their book proposals are their business plans. Most agents and publishers require a proposal before ever setting eyes on a manuscript, and it is a crucial element in getting published. Writing a proposal can also help an author to write the right book for the right audience, and to more successfully pitch a book to the right agent or publisher. Propose Your Book offers a clear understanding of the book proposal process in today's fiercely competitive publishing climate. It includes:
The most up-to-date concepts in writing a book proposal
Insider tips from the agents and publishers
Examples of actual proposals from publishers' files
Covering proposals for nonfiction, fiction, and children's books, Patricia Fry provides a hands-on approach from an experienced writer's perspective. Propose Your Book, enriched with innovative and tried-and-true strategies, is a complete guide to perfecting contemporary proposals that will sell writers' books.
