Nonfiction book proposal


Need to write a nonfiction book proposal, but not sure how to proceed?

Perhaps you’ve met an agent who likes your idea but needs a proposal.

Or you’ve written a proposal and need some constructive feedback before you send it out to agents?

You’ve come to the right place.


Make sure your nonfiction book proposal properly conveys your expertise.

With my unusual combination of experience as a literary agent, as a structural editor, and as the author of two nonfiction books, I cover more bases than your average manuscript assessor.

Ensure you’ve addressed all the essential elements of a book proposal and make the strongest case for an agent to represent you or an editor to acquire your book.

Hello and welcome. I help writers and experts develop their work to a publishable standard, find an agent, and get published.
As the traditionally published author of two books, as a structural editor, former in-house editor and literary agent, I provide fiction and nonfiction writers with the sorts of commercial and constructive feedback you'll never get from a writing class or workshop.
