The 8 Elements of a Killer Book Proposal: Sell Your Nonfiction Book Before You Write It

Have you got a brilliant idea for a nonfiction book, but need investment to make it happen? You'll need a book proposal to get your project off the ground. We know that writing a proposal can be a difficult (and slightly terrifying) prospect. That's why we've asked Book Proposal and Book Coach, Jennie Nash, to take us through the process in a live webinar.

The 8 Elements of a Killer Book Proposal: Sell Your Nonfiction Book Before You Write It

A book proposal is an argument for your idea, a business case for your project, a showcase of your expertise, and a declaration of your voice. It is used by nonfiction writers to invite agents and publishers to invest in your project before you write the book. Jennie Nash is a book coach who specializes in nonfiction proposals. Join her as she shares insider tricks to developing a proposal that makes an impact.
