The Book Proposal


The pursuit of non-fiction books does not end after the research, reporting, and writing has been completed.

There will come a day when the author must decide whether to enter the pursuit of selling it—or not.

To do so requires a book proposal that not only distills the author’s book, its mission, and its platform, but also distinguishes it within its competitive set.

To accomplish this, Thane & Prose partners with authors not only on the construction of their book proposal document, but also on the manuscript submission—aligning the two in order to maximize its impact upon the acquisition editor to whom they will be submitting.

Thane & Prose book proposals have been accepted for representation by, and gone into submission through, such literary agencies as Writer’s House and William Morris Endeavor.
