Writing a Book Proposal

If you’re writing fiction, you need a completed manuscript before you can start querying literary agents.

The rules are different for non-fiction. You submit a book proposal. If it gets accepted (with an advance, if you’re lucky), you start to write the actual book.

I found a site which is offering a free guide to Writing a Book Proposal. Click here if you want details.

As always, if something is too good to be true, it probably is. So be careful.
