One section at a time.
First, good news.
Non-fiction is almost always sold “on proposal.” That means you get to show publishers what you plan to write, but don’t actually have to write it until you get a book deal. It’s pretty awesome.
But there’s a catch.
Your proposal has to be so insanely good that editors fall in love with your project and believe that readers will, too.
This is where I come in.
I’ll help you clarify your book’s focus, organize your work, and pull all the pieces together in the most interesting and effective way.
We’ll work together in smart, digestible steps to not only get your proposal done; but get it done right.
A great proposal takes more than just great writing.
Most authors make a critical mistake when writing a proposal: they focus on what they think is important instead of what editors think is important.
With four major publishing deals of my own, I’ve been right where you are now.
That’s why I have an obsessive focus on the end result — making sure you include all the right elements to convince publishers your book deserves to be out in the world.
I’ll help make sure your proposal:
- Is engaging from the first sentence
- Aligns with current markets
- Offers a strategic and interesting angle even if your topic isn’t new
- Is compelling from a sales and marketing perspective
Not in a million years did I expect you to read my mind, but you did. Thank you for everything!
I'd been struggling for months when Amy swooped in and helped me write the best proposal I could imagine!
WOW. I can't believe it. You are a master Sensei.
