The Business of Books with Jen & Kerry: Craft a Winning Book Proposal
You may have a terrific book or book idea ready to dazzle the world. Alas, without a spot-on book proposal, it may never see the light of day. Don't let this happen to you! In this three-hour workshop, learn how to create a savvy and professional proposal that will make publishers and agents sit up and take notice. Two industry insiders will walk you through the key elements of any successful proposal--including title/subtitle, opening pitch, author bio, and marketing ideas--and help you polish each one with hands-on exercises. By crafting a winning proposal, you'll get your book idea out of the slush pile--and onto the shelves.
