Write the Perfect Book Proposal (Kobo eBook)
* Straightforward: The book is divided into two parts. The first part includes detailed but easily applied step-by-step instructions on creating a strong, persuasive proposal for both fiction and nonfiction, as well as understanding the market, promoting your book, and getting the best advance and the right publisher.
