Side Trip: How to Write a Non-Fiction Book Proposal – Part 14


Tell them where you are with your manuscript right now.
  • Are you about halfway through writing it?
  • Are you submitting this proposal elsewhere simultaneously?

This statement might look something like this:

“I currently have three sample chapters written and am circulating queries and proposals simultaneously to agents and publishers.”

Or for fiction:

“I have my story synopsis complete and am currently writing this novel. I’m about half way through my first draft.”
