A complete proposal sells your book, pure and simple. But some authors don't think a proposal is necessary. Perhaps you already have a contract, or you plan to self-publish. If you don't have to sell the book to a publisher, why write a proposal? That reasoning sounds logical, but there are purposes for a book proposal beyond selling it to a publisher. In A Christian Writer's Guide to the Book Proposal, I share six reasons why it benefits you to write a book proposal and seven items that should be part of every book proposal. A Christian Writer's Guide to the Book Proposal is based on my previously published writing and on my teaching at Christian writers' conferences around the country. The material included applies to writers and book projects of all sorts: fiction and nonfiction; completed manuscripts and unwritten book ideas, first-time and previously published authors, traditionally published, indie, and self-published. So, give your book idea a chance for success. Learn how with A Christian Writer's Guide to the Book Proposal.
