Details, details, details. And that’s a good thing!
How To Write A Book Proposal, by Michael Larsen, is so much more than a step by step how-to of writing a book proposal. Jam-packed with practical ideas to promote and “sell” your book, your book idea, and essentially yourself, How To Write A Book Proposal, goes beyond simply writing the proposal. Larsen includes information on choosing a title, promoting your book, marketing, self-publishing, selecting an agent, and, my personal favorite, a great little visual flow diagram of the publishing process itself.
It can be difficult to sift through the overabundance of information currently available. Larsen helps navigate at least the publishing process. Practical, specific, detailed suggestions and examples appear throughout the book including the decision as to what should and shouldn’t be included in your proposal, the specifics of how to format your proposal, to the setting of necessary goals in order to become a successful author.
I recommend this book to anyone considering writing a book or simply interested in gaining insight into the publishing industry. If I ever decide to take the plunge and write a book, I will certainly be using the most current edition of title as a reference guide.
