Supplemental Resources

Query, Synopsis, and Proposal Examples

The Business of Being a Writer includes many pages of advice on how to write queries, synopses, and book proposals, but there was limited space to include full-length examples of these materials. Here, I hope to provide even more specific direction on what good submissions materials look like, as well as other business-related information. If you’re willing to share examples that can be publicly posted here, please get in touch.
