Book Proposals: A Recommended Read

 For the writers out there:

One of the top questions I'm asked at conferences and in workshops  about writing is: what does a good book proposal look like? How do you know when it will work?

Answering this can take hours, but there's an easier solution that will save you time. This one's a good shortcut to answering that question. It's brought together by Angela Hoy, and it's called Book Proposals That Worked: Real Book Proposals that Landed $10K-100K Publishing Contracts.

It's the best resource I've ever seen for this -- it's not just about about "how," but it directly shows you the proposals.

At the publisher's site, here.

Mari - this is hands-down the best book on the market about book proposals. I really think it's better to show what a successful book proposal looks like, rather than just tell how to do one.

I hope it proves to be a good tool for you.

Thanks a bundle. I still have problems with proposals. Help can't hurt - especially highly recommended good help. ;)
