Writing a Book Proposal Well

Since the beginning of the month I have been working on my first book proposal. In preparation, I have read several books and blog posts about how to write a good one. Below are some of the blog posts and books I have read with links to them.

One Response to Writing a Book Proposal Well

  1. Thank you for those great links! Book proposals can be a bit daunting, but having a collection editor who can give feedback can help about drafting it. I was lucky this was the case when I worked on the proposal for the book I’m currently writing.

    Good luck with your projects and the rest of AcWriMo!
