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.
