At Writer's Lifeline, we believe know that the most lucrative stories are often the ones that are true. It's for this reason that we're so strongly committed to the mission of creating nonfiction book proposals.

If you have a great story to tell, or a great cause to champion, then it's your duty to us all to share it with as many people as possible.

And the good news is that, in the case of nonfiction, you don’t have to write the entire book. A 20-50 page proposal, consisting of the elements the publishers must consider, is enough to garner an advance that will finance the writing of the remainder of your book.

We also believe that the people who live the great stories are entitled to financial reward for sharing them-which is why the nonfiction book proposals we create are designed to sell books—and have sold dozens of them, including many bestsellers.

Our experienced Writer's Lifeline editors will help you tell your story, or champion your cause, in terms that enhance your "author qualifications" and best promise to captivate and inspire acquisitions editors in today's market.

Your completed nonfiction book proposal will include a one-page overview of your book, an annotated table of contents, at least two sample chapters, and sections about the author, the target audience, the competition, and the marketing possibilities, as well as other required supporting materials and documentation.

For more information, write to us.
