How to Write a Winning Non-Fiction Book Proposal


When it comes to writing a winning non-fiction book proposal, even some of the best budding writers could find themselves scratching their heads and chewing their pens to come up with a gleaming book proposal that would get the attention of the publishers and eventually get their book published in the market. In today’s competitive world, where there is fierce competition to get published, even the best of the best need some help at some point of time.

Whether one has already completed writing a nonfiction book or is currently contemplating on commencing writing a new one, knowing how to write a winning non-fiction book proposal will go a long way in getting the book ultimately published. In this regard, it is to be noted that commencing work on the book proposal will help the author to have a synopsis of the project at hand and proceed in a step by step manner towards completion of the goal i.e., writing the book. It acts as an outline for the project and gives a clear-cut idea about what the book should contain. Moreover, in her e-book, 7 Top Tips to Create a Screaming Hot Non-Fiction Book Proposal Patricia Kelley gives some practical advice on how to address this issue in a concise and lucid manner that actually works.

Purpose of a Book Proposal:

Even before an agent would take a look at a book, he/she would ask for the book proposal. Following are some points to elucidate why knowing how to write a winning non-fiction book proposal is of such importance and what purpose does it suffice:

  • It acts as a synopsis of the finished book.
  • It gives the agent and the publisher a taste of the author’s narrative tone / quality.
  • It is the sole argument based on which the agent would fight on behalf of the author with the publisher. The agent uses the book proposal to convince the publisher on the book’s merits and why he/she feels it’s not declinable.
  • It provides a chance for the author to showcase his “business” proposal and the great profit potential for both him/her and the publisher and the agent of course.

Essential Elements of a Book Proposal:

The essential elements that a winning non-fiction book proposal should contain are as follows:

  1. Original Idea: The idea of the book should be unique and original which should appeal to the masses.
  2. Scope: The author should have a very clear sense of his/her target audience and their requirements and how this book is going to address that specific issue.
  3. Why is it Important?: A winning non-fiction book proposal should address the issue of why this particular book is important and how it is better than the existing books that are already in circulation in the market. In a nutshell, what is its unique sales proposition (USP)?
  4. Sales: This is the bottom line! A winning non-fiction book proposal should address the issue of market size at hand. How many copies of the book could be expected to fly off the shelves in the very first few months? How big is the market for this book project?

To conclude, writing a winning non-fiction book proposal is an art and could only be mastered under the tutelage of an experienced veteran. For more information, one can refer to the timeless classic 7 Top Tips to Create a Screaming Hot Non-Fiction Book Proposal by Patricia Kelley and get their books published just like that!
