Wondering how to write a book proposal? Please join me and the Editorial Freelancers Association on November 15, 2016, and then you’ll know “How to Write (or Edit) a Winning Book Proposal.” This is a live webinar. Here’s the description:
It has long been the case that nonfiction writers, instead of penning a complete manuscript, could sell their ideas based solely on well-developed book proposals. An extended marketing pitch, the book proposal is a unique document that any writer of nonfiction must master. Do you know how to write a book proposal that will get you that agent or book deal? Learn how editors and agents evaluate potential acquisitions and what your proposal must contain to get the coveted attention of these publishing professionals. This webinar will teach you what goes into a contract-winning book proposal, where to find important information, and how to evaluate your own material to ensure you’re presenting your project—and yourself—in the best possible light.
This presentation will teach you:
- What kind of information agents and publishers expect to see in your proposal and how to properly organize it for best effect.
- How agents and publishers evaluate book proposals when considering acquisitions and what you can do to improve your chances of getting a book deal.
- Why writing a book proposal will boost your book’s success even if you decide to self-publish (and top warning signs that your proposal can help bring to light).
