Working with an Independent Editor Panel

Linda Carbone is discussing nonfiction. She stresses that nonfiction authors should work on a proposal rather than a complete manuscript.

The important parts of a proposal she's going over:
  • Introduction
  • Overview
  • Marketing and Promo opportunities
  • About the Author
  • Competing Books
  • Table of Contents
  • Chapter Summaries
  • Complete Sample Chapter
Note: for more on proposals see WD title How to Write a Book Proposal by literary agent Michael Larsen.
