There are a lot of writers out there trying to get a book published--and without much success. So where do you start? If you're writing a nonfiction book, your first step should be a book proposal. Oh no, not a book proposal. While that's the attitude many writers have toward book proposals we really should be saying "Hooray! A book proposal!" Because for most authors it's the book proposal that sells their idea to the gatekeepers: agents and publishers.
Nina Amir wants to change our attitudes about book proposals by providing us with an easy-to-follow manual: The Nonfiction Book Proposal Demystified: An Easy-Schmeasy Guide to Writing a Business Plan for Your Book. So take a deep breath, turn to page one, and start creating a book proposal that will sell your dream.

The Nonfiction Book Proposal Demystified: An Easy-Schmeasy Guide to Writing a Business Plan for Your Book
Review by Jodi Webb
After reading The Nonfiction Book Proposal Demystified, I'm looking at book proposals in a whole new way. In the past they seemed like a chore to do before sending your book out to an agents or publisher. Nina makes you see that, aside from being a helpful tool for agents and publishers, a book proposal can be a helpful tool for YOU, the writer. Do you have a dozen book ideas rattling around in your brain? Which one to work on first...how will you decide? It's easy. Writing book proposals will help you judge the marketability of your ideas as well as strengthen any weaknesses you may find in your idea BEFORE you begin writing.
The Nonfiction Book Proposal Demystified breaks the book proposal down by section telling you what should be in each section and helpful tips like how long each section should be, what you shouldn't be saying and how the agent/publisher will be looking at each section. The book also recommends several other books that cover book proposals. This is short book that provides step by step instructions and makes an overwhelming job manageable.
