Ever wonder what a literary agent looks for in a book proposal? Now you can get personalized guidance and one-on-one feedback on your book proposal from literary and marketing agent Stephanie Alton. (Nonfiction for adults only. No fiction or memoir.)
How it Works:
Upon registration and payment for this mentoring session, Stephanie will send you an annotated template with all the elements your proposal needs, along with insider tips on what to include and what not to.
You will have two weeks to submit a book proposal to Stephanie. (May include up to three sample chapters if you want them to be reviewed, but this is optional.) Deadline: May 31.
Stephanie will review the submissions and schedule a 15-minute one-on-one Zoom session with each participant between June 15 and June 30 to provide personalized feedback on the proposal and the book idea’s marketability potential.
Registration deadline: May 15 (or until we hit the maximum of 10 registrants)
For an additional $100, you can submit a revised proposal to Stephanie and she will provide you with a 10-page in-depth critique of areas that still need work and how to improve them.
If you’re new to proposal writing or are trying to figure out which format to follow, this program is for you. A well-written proposal will get you on the road to traditional publishing success!
