BookProposalWriting.com Teaches Authors How to Write a Successful Book Proposal

Successfully published book authors have donated their time and knowledge to launchBookProposalWriting.com, a new website to help aspiring authors sell their non-fiction book ideas to book publishers for a six-figure advance.

The book publishing industry holds a closely-guarded secret to getting published by a major book publisher — the secret is writing a persuasive book proposal. Writing a successful book proposal allows book authors to earn a five or six-figure advance before they even start writing their manuscripts.

According to Brian Scott, the site’s creator and publishing director of Payday Publishing, “Many aspiring authors have never heard about a book proposal or how to use one to land a book publishing contract. Instead, these aspiring authors spend several months writing their books, and then grow old shopping their entire manuscripts around to busy book publishers and literary agents. It’s no wonder why many aspiring authors become frustrated and give up. This way does not work today.”

To educate aspiring authors about using a book proposal, BookProposalWriting.com offers a free online “Book Proposal Writing Workshop,” which teaches writers and book authorshow to write a book proposal in seven days or less. The Workshop covers important topics such as: “Why write a book proposal first?,” “How to generate ideas to write your book proposal,” “How to write your book’s blurb for your book proposal,” and “How to write your book proposal query letter.” At the end of the Workshop, aspiring book authors can download a free sample book proposal and use it as a working template for their own work-in-progress proposals.

Besides offering a free book proposal workshop, BookProposalWriting.com offers many free how-to articles and audio articles on writing, designing and selling a book, as well as many instructional videos showing step-by-step how to write different components of a book proposal.

BookProposalWriting.com also offers several free downloadable products covering book writing, book marketing, and self-publishing. A few of the website’s products include: “Hot Topics in Book Writing,” “How to Get a Literary Agent,” “Sit Down and Write that Bestselling Novel,” and “Copyright Protection for Book Authors.”

BookProposalWriting.com is not just for authors who want to publish their books the traditional way, but also for self-publishers and independent e-book authors. “Even if you decide to self-publish or write a book as an e-book or a mobile digital book, you should know how to write a book proposal,” said Scott. “If your self-published book becomes a big success, you may want to pitch your book (or book ideas) to a major book publisher or film agent to reap in the financial rewards.”

BookProposalWriting.com is part of a network of writing-related websites — all run and maintained by working freelancers — which include Freelance Writing, Book Writing, and Write Better.
