clear, comprehensive, concise. Good examples, explicit instructions. I haven't finished writing my proposal yet, but it is getting better and better as I apply each chapter's wisdom. Hope it works! ( )

The definitive guide to breaking into the adult non-fiction book publishing business. I must have sold 100 copies of this book as a result of all the times I've recommended it to budding authors. (I recommend that anyone who is interested in writing an adult non-fiction book read this book first.) This book continues to be my book proposal bible.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0898797713, Paperback)

Written by a literary agent who has successfully placed writers' manuscripts with more than 100 publishers, this newly revised book takes you through every step of writing a nonfiction book proposal: test your idea's market potential and effectively relate that idea in your proposal, prepare an introduction that conveys your book's purpose and audience, as it compels the editor to read on, pick the best editors and publishers to pitch your proposal to, create a professional-looking proposal package, and predispose publishers to make you their best offer. You'll also find three complete sample proposals to use as guides, complete self-promotion strategies and a wealth of insider tips that will put your proposal ahead of the competition.
