Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Invaluable Read  Sep 5, 2008
Whalin writes from having been on both sides of the book publishing desk: acquisitions editor, literary agent and writer. When marketing nonfiction or fiction with a book proposal, this book will be invaluable to your efforts. Whalin tells you what the editor and agent look for in a book proposal they can accept. The book presents a comprehensive guide to writing nonfiction book proposals. If you've completed a novel you want to market, you will also need to write a book proposal; many parts of this book will apply to the fiction writer's book proposal. Whalin references authentic resources that give a roadmap to completing a fiction book proposal. On page 102 Whalin writes, "The proposals that sell, however, are the ones in which the author thoroughly presents the concept and includes all of the necessary information." Then in an appendix he includes a checklist to use when preparing nonfiction book proposals. I recommend the book.

A must read before writing  Aug 1, 2008
What I like about this book is that fact that it tells you the things you need to know PRIOR to actually writing that non-fiction. I am so glad I bought it because it will save me a lot of time and effort. Now that I read it, I now have a "vision" on how to approach writing that book and weave it into a successful manuscript. It also saves me time surfing the Internet searching for guidance on how to write a winning book proposal. This book tells it all. From book conception, to submission, to marketing, and much, much more. Its a must read before writing.
Save Your Money  Jul 25, 2008
Save your money. This book contains out dated websites and scant information that is readily available on the internet, and in far more informative detail. The secrets are hardly that, and many one page articles on the internet can give you all the information you need to know.
Good Book  Apr 9, 2008
This book is a great introduction to book publishing. The author really knows the back-end process of book publishing well and provides much insight for beginner and intermediate writers. Another good book to purchase would be: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published, 4th Edition. While Terry's book is great, the Complete Idiots guide touches on a few areas in addition. All in all Terry's book is a very good book and worth the money.
Outside In  Feb 1, 2008
Terry Whalin's BOOK PROPOSALS THAT SELL gives aspiring writers a publishing insider's expertise while maintaining a true empathy for outsiders longing to crack the door to the publishing world. The author's longtime industry experience adds a huge portion of credence to his practical, information-packed tips.

The happy ending (and beginning) for my own story came when publishers accepted both nonfiction proposals I wrote using Terry's wise counsel. Thanks, Terry, for all you do to bring those on the outside successfully in!
