Book Review: How To Write a book proposal by Michael Larsen

Have you ever considered that you may have a book inside you? No doubt you know things others would like to learn or have learned lessons throughout life that could help someone else. If God has laid something on your heart to write—whether it be inspirational fiction, devotions, Bible Studies or something else that would point others to Him, you first must begin with a book proposal if your goal is for your book to be traditionally published. While you can always self-publish, if you want to reach a lot of people with your message then getting your book picked up by a publisher is the way to go—and like I said, the road beings with a book proposal.
 To show exactly what goes in a book proposal and what publishers are looking for, author Michael Larsen has written How to Write a Book Proposal. Each chapter is chalk full of helpful tips and advice for crafting your best proposal.

 The book lays out all the essential elements of a proposal that publishers expect when they receive one. Writers who are diligent to write their proposals in the way this book instructs will not only make a good impression with the gatekeepers of the publishing house they query, but such writers will stand out from the armatures who haven’t learned how to write a winning book proposal—thus giving writers, who have done their homework, an advantage over the rest—and that is always a good thing.
