A book proposal is a vital pitch document, aimed at telling publishers what your book is about and why they should be interested. It usually includes a synopsis (a short version of what’s in the book), a chapter breakdown (a full description of what each chapter will contain) and a persuasive summing up of the book’s USP (its unique selling point). More often than not, it will also provide a sample chapter to give the publisher an idea of the writing style.
Your proposal should also identify the book’s sales potential and its place in the market. Publishers will only take on books that are commercially viable and they will read your proposal to decide if they want to talk about a deal.
A clever, well-executed proposal is the key to attracting a publisher. Most of them will not consider taking you on until they have seen a detailed book proposal, so having yours written by an experienced professional is worth every penny.
