Step by step with Jane Friedman
Webinar presentation 

[NOTE: THIS WEBINAR IS FULL.] If you want to traditionally publish a nonfiction book, a completed manuscript usually isn’t enough to land you a book deal. You’ll also need a book proposal. A book proposal is essentially a business plan for your book; it convincingly argues why your book is a salable product in today’s market. A book proposal requires research and thought; if properly developed, it can take weeks (or longer) to write. This webinar breaks down what can be an overwhelming process into clear, manageable steps.
