“Working with Kevin Anderson & Associates is a great experience. Having worked together on multiple books over the years, they’ve proven themselves to be reliable, responsive, and talented. Their team of bestselling authors is a great resource for us and I definitely recommend their services to any author or publisher looking for top-quality writing services with a well-managed process.”

What’s in a Book Proposal?

Book proposals vary in size and structure, though most contain some of the following sections.
  • Overview: An executive summary of your book and why people would want to read it.
  • Author Bio: Why you’re the right author for this book.
  • Comparable Titles: An evaluation of similar titles and authors, how well those books sold, and why your book fills a void in the market.
  • Annotated Outline: Captivating chapter descriptions
  • Author Platform and Marketing Strategy: A detailed analysis of your ability and strategy to sell books.
  • Sample Chapters (optional)
