5.0 étoiles sur 5 Helpful to writers at every stage of their career; relevant to nonfiction books on any subject 2 mai 2017
Par Claudia Moscovici - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Co-written by veteran literary agents (and husband and wife) Jeff Herman and Deborah Levine Herman, this book is a must-read for writers at any stage of their careers and helpful for writing a proposal for practically any kind of nonfiction book. It introduces beginning writers to the process of pitching their book project to agents and editors. It is equally helpful to published writers who want to polish their proposals or wish to transition to a different kind of publishing house. For instance, generally speaking, the Marketing section of the proposal would have to be more developed if the book is intended for a big five publishing house than for a university press. This book offers guidelines about how to write a book proposal for a wide range of publishers: the big five, independent and small presses and academic publishers. It also gives helpful examples of ten successful proposals in the fields of business, self-help, psychology, spirituality and other areas, analyzing their strengths and considering where they could be improved. My favorite example was Brainblocks by Theo Tsaousides. In fact, I found that proposal so interesting that I bought the book!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid, but dated 3 janvier 2016
Par Jay Payleitner. Dad. Husband. Author. Speaker. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Lots and lots of helpful information. A good reminder that publishing is a business and you need to do your homework. For example, you need to make sure your manuscript matches the mission statement of the publisher. Otherwise, you're just wasting everyone's time and money. The book offers solid examples of what a book proposal should do. But it's too dated to get five stars. This is the second edition. Maybe Herman and Herman need to do a third!

After a review of the desirability and requirements of a book proposal, the authors provide ten successful proposals and discuss them. The proposals are varied and the book will meet needs of most authors interested in the self-help and nonfiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay, let's get serious here. 15 septembre 2015
Par Anton Wircek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you're a writer or an aspiring one, get this book. It is detailed but not dense. It provides actual, actionable details that you can use. This book also serves up a healthy serving of "let's get serious here." Definitely in the top five of the entire category...actually, top three. Check it out from the library. You'll end up buying it anyway but give it a read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I love to write but the proposals were something I could ... 24 mars 2016
Par Vicki Gann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Just what I needed! I already knew a lot of this information by studying on my own, but to have examples of proposals at my finger tips I could refer to was exactly what I needed in helping me sharpen my writing skills in my proposals. I love to write but the proposals were something I could not get that smoothness and rhythm as my writing was developing in to. I did not know how to sale my writing, and this book truly did help me with that! Thank you Jeff Herman, and Deborah Levine Herman!
