Praise From Our Authors

Thank you, Jason, for your kind words!

 

"As a first time writer, the idea of opening my work up for constructive criticism was daunting to say the least. Through Linda and one of her editors, it made the process absolutely enjoyable. Not only is my book stronger as a result, but I am a better writer for having worked with them as well. Thank you, Linda!"  Jason Huza,   " Just Let's Go"
5 Tips for Writing a Book Proposal
The book proposal for your non-fiction book should argue why your book is unique and marketable, and why you are the person to write it. Make sure to include:
  1.  Overview: explain why you wrote your book and what sets it apart from  other in the marketplace.
  2.  Author's bio: let the publisher know who you are, what authority and  credentials you have to write this book.
  3.  Chapter Headings and Chapter Outlines.
  4.  Marketing Plan: who will read your book? Show that there is a market for  your work. Your online social media presence, speaking engagements, etc
  5.  Sample Chapters (usually 3) to show your writing style.
