Fiction Book Proposal

My school is on Spring Break. I thought I had another week, but it turns out that I have until Thursday night to write a book proposal. Believe it or not, I was not procrastinating. Honestly it never occurred to me that I could hand a document this large to an editor I may meet...

A book proposal seems to consist of the following elements.

Fiction Proposal Outline

  1. Cover Sheet
  2. Table of Contents
  3. The Market/Audience
  4. Marketing of the Book
  5. Promotion and Publicity
  6. Author's Promotion
  7. About the Author
  8. Synopsis
  9. Chapter Outlines
  10. Two Sample Chapters
Needless to say, I have a lot of work to complete.
