If you're pitching non fiction your proposal should be longer than 10 pages.

Much longer. #pubtip

Writing a book proposal is for YOU as much as it's for the agents and editors. You need to know exactly what your book is about. Each chapter. Who you're going to interview. Aware of the market. Have a platform/be an expert. Send samples. #pubtip
