Book Proposal Writing and Agent Querying
Traditional publishers don’t buy books, they buy proposals.
To sell your book, it must look good. The traditional publishing industry (think Knopf, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, etc.) reacts positively to proposals that follow a specific format. Submitting a properly formatted proposal will enhance the likelihood that a major publisher will be interested in your story.
When you come down to it, this is about presentation. A book proposal is a sophisticated exercise in branding and self-promotion that demonstrates the marketability of your concept.
The story must be both visually pleasing and readable. You have the story, and we need to communicate it effectively.
Once your proposal is ready, you've got to find an agent willing to read it. Most traditional book publishers do not read proposals unless they're submitted by an agent. We'll do the research to help you find agents most likely to express interest in your project.
Your readers’ first impressions are crucial—you need to grab them before they lose interest and put the book down.
