How to Wow Agents and Publishers with Your Nonfiction Book Proposal with Lisa Tener

If one of your goals is to have a best-selling book on the shelves of Barnes & Noble and Amazon, then you’ll need a book proposal.

But not just ANY book proposal, you want to write one that gets the attention of big-name agents and publishers, that positions you for a 5 – 6 figure book deal!
