I’M WORKING ON A BOOK IDEA. WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ME?
We work with burgeoning authors in a variety of ways: through in-person workshops, through private “2-on-1” proposal reviews and consultations (see below), and customized individual consultation. We also sell our exclusive Publishing Toolkit, a 100-plus page binder packed with insider information that guides you through our 30-day process to a winning book proposal. Not sure what you need? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll recommend next steps.
I’M A PUBLISHER OR AGENT. HOW CAN I USE YOUR SERVICES?
We work with publishers and agents to get authors’ proposals up to snuff. If you have an author, idea, or proposal that you’re intrigued by, but you find you need a more complete pitch in order to take it to the next step, then we’re your team. Hand it over to us, and we’ll work with the author to deliver you a complete, polished proposal that meets your needs. Also, whenever you get pitches or questions about the proposal process, you can refer folks to us for help; just have them email us at email@example.com.
HOW DOES A 2-ON-1 PROPOSAL REVIEW WORK, EXACTLY?
Our 2-on-1 review offers the opportunity to get both of our detailed feedback on your unique proposal, based on our many years of experience reviewing and writing successful proposals on a variety of subjects. The review is done electronically. You send us the electronic file in MS Word (double spaced and in a readable font) and we each make comments throughout the document, highlighting suggestions and revisions that will help your proposal really shine. You’ll also receive an assessment from us with a synopsis of our comments and strengths and weaknesses of the proposal overall. While we are not able to do in-person or phone consultations to follow up, you are welcome to email us if anything we’ve written is unclear. We do ask to take a look at your proposal to confirm a final estimate and a turnaround time, but in general our review fee is $599 for proposals up to 30 pages double-spaced (including the sample text) with a two-week turnaround time. Contact us for more details.
CAN I GET NOTES FROM YOU IF I MISS A TALK OR WORKSHOP?
Sorry, we do not provide notes if you miss an event. If the event includes handouts, you may contact us for those materials.
MAY I SHARE THE HANDOUTS OR PROPOSAL TOOLKIT WITH OTHERS?
No. The information is copyrighted and provided as part of your paid registration or fee. We trust that our students will protect our intellectual property by not copying or distributing the information we provide to paid attendees and Toolkit customers.
