- Today I continue my series on nonfiction book proposals. Over the next several Tuesday Tips I’ll continue to cover some of the meat-and-potatoes of choosing topics, researching ideas, and putting together a winning nonfiction book proposal. While I write primarily about pets, the same ingredients for your nonfiction book stew are the same–it’s just the seasoning and presentation that may vary.
The first week discussed the IDEA TREE followed by topic choice including where to find ideas and decide if they’re viable. The third covered passionate picks and bio building–and then the holidays happened, so I took a week off. The next installment covered to query or not, what goes in a query or cover letter and how to approach an editor/agent. We’ve dissected the nonfiction proposal to find out the components and got up-close-and-personal with the nonfiction proposal OVERVIEW and the COMPETITION/MARKET SURVEY. Today the discussion is short and sweet, and focuses on the format.
UPDATED JUNE 2013: THIS SERIES HAS BEEN REMOVED.
