Sign the contract…then write the book. The good news is that almost every nonfiction book published is sold by a proposal. In this comprehensive yet accessible guide, you will learn exactly what a proposal is, what it must contain, and how to pull yours together into an informative, persuasive selling package. Already a favorite for thousands of aspiring writers, this book has been revised and updated by Elizabeth Lyon to feature nearly two dozen actual proposals, plus: · Choosing a topic based on current trends and competing titles · Drafting the perfect concept statement—daring agents and editors to reject you · Defining and targeting your readership—then connecting with them · Preparing a table of contents and chapter summaries · Submitting exciting and well-written sample chapters · Writing query letters · Devising a marketing plan that will excite agents and publishers
