Six-figure deal with Harper and WSJ bestseller

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.

#1-ranked agent on Publishers Marketplace

Working with Kevin Anderson & Associates and their team of bestselling ghostwriters has been a great experience all around. In addition to delivering excellent material in a timely manner, I especially appreciate their ability to adapt to demanding timelines and nonstandard processes. They are truly a classy organization that takes great pride in taking care of their clients. It’s rare to find such professionalism in a writing service. On one particularly demanding project, they really went above and beyond to produce an excellent manuscript within a two-month window—the way he and the organization handled the process was prompt, professional. They have also referred some great authors to us that we ended up signing deals with. I strongly recommend their service to any author, agent, or publisher.

Tim Burgard, HarperCollins

Senior Acquisitions Editor with HarperCollins Leadership

KAA made my dream of becoming a published author a reality. When I first reached out to them, I knew nothing about the publishing business or how to write a book.  KAA’s industry knowledge and insider connections were incredibly valuable in ensuring I had the best team for long-term success. KAA’s team, and very often Kevin himself, were truly my partners and guided me through every step—planning the book, structuring the chapters, positioning the book to my target reader, ensuring the writing was publishable, connecting me directly with the top literary agents in the country, introducing me to the best PR agents and marketers, and finally helping me choose between multiple offers from Big-5 publishers….They are the best in the business and really take care of you–I can’t recommend them highly enough.

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: Who you are and 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)
