Write a Book Proposal that Wows! 

Book Proposal ServicesBook Proposal Services

If you choose to pitch your book to a traditional publisher, you’ll typically need a book proposal.

You’ll have the most success if you:

  • Pitch publishers that handle books on your topic
  • Follow the guidelines for proposals specified by each publisher.

The typical book proposal is an in-depth document, outlining the following:

  • Your book concept
  • Your entire plan for the book, including table of contents and chapter descriptions
  • Sample chapter or chapters
  • Target audience for your book
  • Your bio—explaining your credentials and why you are the right person to write the book
  • Your plans and ability to promote the book
  • Competitive analysis for your book, demonstrating that books on this topic sell
  • Demonstration that your book is unique among others on this topic

What Others are Saying…

Because of Bonnie Budzowski, we have just had my book project accepted by John Wiley and Sons! I have four other self-published books, but when my co-author and I decided that our next book will be a best-seller (!), we turned to Bonnie to help us organize the content and lay out the book proposal. She is a Pro, is incredibly creative, and does what she says she will do in a timely manner.”

Bonnie is my tireless cheerleader. The feedback I receive from her demonstrates her expertise as a writing coach as well as her enthusiasm for my success as an author. I have complete confidence in Bonnie!”
