Hey future bestsellers!
Lisa Daily here, I’m a bestselling, traditionally-published author of 8 fiction and non-fiction books (including several self-help books!) and today I’m going to show you how to write a self-help book proposal, including the EXACT book proposal format I’ve used to sell my books to major publishers including Penguin, Random House (now part of Penguin), and Sourcebooks.
In this video I’m sharing my step-by-step process for writing and submitting a book proposal that gets both literary agents and publishers ON FIRE about your self-help book.
In this video, I’ll explain:
* What is a book proposal?
*The MOST IMPORTANT elements a self-help / non-fiction author MUST include in a book proposal — these are CRITICAL!
*How to show an acquisitions editor that your book will sell, BEFORE YOU’VE EVEN FINISHED WRITING IT
*Why you don’t need to write your entire book before you pitch it to a literary agent and/or sell it to a publisher, and how to get a publishing deal.
*Book proposal tips for getting published
