If you are a lot like me, you struggle with preparing a book proposal.
Writers usually prepare book proposals when soliciting to publishers. And preparing one can be a nightmare, especially if you don’t know where to start. I was in this position a week ago … totally lost and not knowing where to begin.
Now, I can say with confidence that I feel comfortable putting a book proposal together. I’ll be honest, it is a daunting task because it takes quite a while to put one together. When I finished my proposal, I wanted to just send it because I was sick of looking at it. But I let the proposal sit a day or two then I proofed it. Glad I did. So, be prepared. Preparing your proposal will take a while, so don’t be in a hurry. And once you’re done, please do yourself a favor and proof it line-by-line.
If you are thinking about preparing a book proposal, or you don’t have the slightest idea of how to go about putting one together, please, please consider taking this class. The cost is $10.00. That’s right–$10.00. And the class is worth so much more. It is AUDIO and you don’t actually get to interact with the instructor. You can, however, start and stop it as many times as you like until you finish it. It is presented by Steve Laube of The Steve Laube Agency.
Before you take the class, make sure you have pencil and paper handy, because Steve will share a wealth of information with you.
