Book Proposals that Sell: Concrete Steps to Enticing Publishers and Agents

Congratulations, you’re done! You’ve devoted attention, energy, and countless hours to writing THE BOOK. What comes next? Finding an agent or publisher, of course.

Fortunately, help on the way. Susan Sachs Lipman, an author, blogger, and social media director for the Children & Nature Network, will discuss how to gather material and do research for your book proposal, what agents and publishers look for in a winning proposal, and how to get their attention.

She’s the author of “Fed Up with Frenzy: Slow Parenting in a Fast-Moving World,” which was named a Top 10 Parenting Trend by TIME Magazine in 2012. Lipman blogs for the New York Times Motherlode, the Christian Science Monitor’s Modern Parenthood, and for her own award-winning Slow Family Online.

    At a cabin with friends in the Olympic National Park. Astonishing beauty. See you all in June.

    This will be my first meetup with this group. I am writing a sci-fi/fantasy novel and would really like suggestions on how to get published commercially.
