Writing Your Non-Fiction Book Proposal



Stymied about how to write a book proposal for your non-fiction book?

The following websites provide guidance:

Check Publishers' websites. Most of them (particularly those that take unagented submissions) have a "For Authors" or "Submissions" link that will give details of what that publisher expects in a proposal, and you'll see various formats different publishers expect.

Helpful print books:
Author 101 - Best Selling Book Proposals by Rick Frishman and Robyn  Freedman Spizman (ISBN 1-59337-412-7)

Nonfiction Book Proposals Anybody Can Write by Elizabeth Lyon (ISBN  0-399-52827-X)
