How to Write the Nonfiction Book Proposal:

Your Book’s Map to Success

Starting a book can be scary, but you are determined to do it because your knowledge, experience or expertise is just what is needed in this world right now. Great! Do you know the three most important questions you need to be able to answer before you start? Do you know that for most nonfiction, you need to write a book proposal before you write the book? Even if you intend to self-publish the book proposal is your roadmap to a well-organized book that will find its readers. The workshop will include a few handouts and recommendations for resources to help your book on its journey to shelves.
