What Publishers REALLY Think of Your Book Proposal

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Every book starts with a proposal.  It's how you get the attention of an editor, and how an editor "sells" the book to others within an organization.  For prospective authors, how can you make your proposal stand out and make people take notice of your idea?  We've gathered representatives of the key stakeholders in any publishing organization to give you the straight skinny on what they're looking for from prospective authors.

* Understand how to write a proposal that will get noticed
* Learn about the inner workings of a publishing organization
* Discover what gets the attention of sales, marketing and editorial, and what is a big turn off
