You’ve finished your book. What happens next?

At The Book Pitch, we help authors put together their book proposal to send to agents and publishers.

We do this by looking at all the elements that should be included in a proposal, showing them to an editor, and sending you back an edited version of your proposal with professional feedback.

All editors who work with The Book Pitch have extensive experience in commercial publishing and what we do is make their experience available to all new authors.

No can guarantee you a bestseller, but what we can do is make sure your proposal is as good as it can be.

After that, it’s down to you and your book.

Submit in 5 Simple Steps

Upload Your Cover Letter

The cover letter is your first contact with your publisher or agent. It should be simple and clear and always contain your contact information.

ADD YOUR SYNOPSIS ( 500 WORDS )

A synopsis should give your publisher a clear idea of the plot of your book, or the ‘narrative arc’. This is true for both fiction and non-fiction, as every book tells a story. For fiction, you should convey a sense of the characters in your book and the plot. For non-fiction, you should give an idea of the range of material being covered and what angle you will be taking. Clarity is vital, and don’t forget to reveal the ending. Your editor won’t mind you ruining the surprise.

FILL IN YOUR AUTHOR BIO (300 WORDS)

Your author bio is important. It gives you an opportunity to mention any other writing you have done or experience that might be relevant. Be sure to mention any media exposure or professional qualifications that could help your editor make a decision.

UPLOAD YOUR FIRST TWO CHAPTERS

Your sample chapters are crucial and should be free of errors. If your book is taken on by a publisher it will be edited again, but at this stage you are competing against other proposals so we want your book to stand out for the right reasons.
