Do I Need a Book Proposal?
Who needs them, and when?
You need to prepare a book proposal if you’re pursuing traditional publishing (as opposed to indie) and you’re writing NON-FICTION (including memoir).
If you’re writing fiction, then you don’t need a full proposal, but you’ll need to prepare a synopsis, and probably gather some comps as well.
There are lots of resources on how to write a book proposal. I’ve got a lot of helps here on my website. Click here or look under “Resources” or “Submitting.” Happy reading!
