(e) Describes the book's appeal.
When your book is published,
who will read it? Make sure you
include a brief section in your
book proposal or query letter to
describe your potential market,
and why you feel they will want to
read your book.
(f) Mentions similar books. If you
want to publish your book, its
always a good idea to mention
other, similar books in the genre
that have been published. This
further establishes that there will
be readers for the book you are
writing and trying to get published.
(g) Enclose a sample chapter or
two, to show the publisher that
your book is being written, and to
demonstrate your writing skills.
All of these points will ensure you
write a good book proposal, which
will greatly enhance your chances
of publishing your book.
