Nonfiction books are sold to traditional publishers based on a book proposal, not a full manuscript. For indie authors, book proposals are a great way to plan how you will write and promote your nonfiction book.

I provide book proposal critiques, including critques of a sample chapter or two, for self-help and how-to books. The cost is $750 for up to 65,000 words – if yours is longer, it’s too long!

For memoir, visit the manuscript evaluation page, since these are treated more like fiction than nonfiction.
