Creating Book Proposals for Nonfiction & Fiction

Creating Book Proposals

In the publishing arena, formal book proposals serve as sales tools sent to editors and publishers. Traditional publishers offer contracts based on the content of the reviewed proposal.

Nonfiction book proposals and fiction proposals are presented in different formats with different content. Authors seeking traditional publication must prepare professional sales materials designed to “sell” the editor and/or publisher on the merit of the manuscript.
