A must read before you submit that proposal
Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2014
I bought this book because I'm in the process of writing my first non-fiction proposal. It was a godsend! The book is a quick, easy read, packed with the information you need to know to write a successful proposal. She walks you through each section you need to write in clear, easy to understand language. By far my favorite part was the Mission Statement, which I chose to include at the beginning of my introduction. No other non-fiction proposal writing book I've read has included that. After the step-by-step instructions, she includes tips on how to make your proposal stand out (hint: none of them are gimmicky). I really enjoyed this book and I think other aspiring non-fiction writers will as well.
I recommend reading this book in tandem with The Foreword Literary Guide to BOOK MARKETING PROPOSALS for Fiction and Non-fiction.
