Five Essentials for Every Book Proposal
Show Notes

Are you tired of starting a book proposal only to keep stopping and walking away? Linda's guest, Terry Whalin, shares the top five elements you must include to confidently finish your proposal.

Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, an extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts of NC. I’m your host Linda Goldfarb. Each week I bring you tips and strategies from experts in the writing and publishing industry to help you excel in your craft. I’m so glad you’re listening in. You’ll learn the Five Essentials for Every Book Proposal during this episode.

My industry expert is Terry Whalin. Terry is an editor and author of more than 60 books and has written for more than 50 magazines. Several of Terry’s books have sold over 100,000 copies.  Terry and his wife live in Denver. 

Terry says, "I've written two proposals that received six-figure advances. I also believe your proposal is your business plan and is something every author needs to create--no matter whether they write fiction, nonfiction, or children's books and even if they self-publish. They still need to create this important document."

Be prepared to be equipped, whether you self-pub or go the traditional route.
