Advice for Creating a Nonfiction Book Proposal

A nonfiction book proposal is the ultimate selling tool, explains writer, producer, and TV host Herbie J Pilato. The proposal shows agents, editors, and publishers that you have a well-formed idea and are dedicated to the topic. Pilato lists the key components of a nonfiction book proposal: an overview or introduction, chapter outlines and samples, your marketing plan, and an author bio.
