The Book Proposal Boot Camp

My first step toward publication was to pitch a polished manuscript. After that came the first hurdle: would my first ten pages pass the test of rejection? After they did came the next hurdle.

Would my book proposal be up to par? I knew how much effort I had put into it, but I couldn’t be sure.

And so, I enrolled in another Writers Digest‘s Agent One on One boot camp! This one was to work on submission materials—query letter, synopsis, and book proposal. It would be the opportunity to find out whether my material met the industry requirements.

The thought of having to rework my 32-page book proposal was overwhelming. However, it helped that it was already structured. Still, I had to revise the overview and develop the marketing and promotion sections.

Next, I have to get ready to back up my marketing plan.
