Writing a Nonfiction Book Proposal, by Beth Jusino
For many authors, writing a 10-20 page book proposal is more intimidating than crafting a 200 page manuscript. And yet, it doesn't have to be. A book proposal is your opportunity to share your passion with agents and publishers, and to make the case for why you are the right writer and this is the right time for this particular book. In Writing a Nonfiction Book Proposal, you will learn the three key questions that every proposal needs to answer, and find clear, helpful tips for how to catch the attention of busy publishing professionals. Written by Beth Jusino, an editor and former literary agent who has developed hundreds of proposals, this whitepaper is full of helpful suggestions, questions, and guidelines that will help you see your own work in a brand new way.
Market While You Write, by Beth Jusino
Today, more than ever, writing a great book is only part of an author's responsibilities. Book sales don't just "happen." Readers can't sift through all of the options competing for their time to spontaneously discover an unknown, reclusive voice. An author needs to build a personal audience of fans and followers who will support early book sales and push a new release out to more readers.
Your opportunity to build that audience starts right now, before your book is even published. Market While You Write offers positive, practical, and accessible ideas for you to understand the marketing responsibilities and start building your own networks. The ideas shared here are appropriate for authors who are pursuing traditional or self-publishing opportunities.
Written by a professional publishing consultant and former literary agent who understands the business of books, and produced by The Editorial Department, one of the oldest and most respected author services firms in the country, Market While You Write makes book marketing accessible, wherever you are in the journey.
