FAQ

Get your questions answered

What is a book proposal and do I need one?

The book proposal is for the nonfiction writer

The book proposal is the nonfiction book’s key to getting agent representation and publisher acceptance. Using the foundation we set for your book combined with the Book Proposal Document that adheres to the industry standard, we build a book proposal and polish it to a professional level. If you are writing a nonfiction book and would like to have it traditionally published, the book proposal is the key to landing an agent and publishing deal, not the book itself.

Is book proposal coaching right for me?

✔️Do you have an idea for a nonfiction book and would like to write a book proposal and build a solid plan for pitching to agents & publishers?
✔️Are not sure where to start with writing a book proposal and would like guidance with the process?
✔️Do you have a book proposal finished already and would like to work on revisions to polish it?
✔️Have you started pitching your book idea to agents but are only getting crickets, or the occasional “This isn’t what we are looking for“?

If you answered yes to one or more of these, then yes!

How long will it take to write my book proposal?

The answer is, it depends…

Your results depend on your proposed book and what book proposal elements you want to highlight on (some writers have a significant following they want to highlight, while others have done extensive research on the topic their book is about, which they include in the proposal). Though it takes most people about 1-6 months to develop a solid, polished proposal, it does vary.

I have a book proposal written and need to do revisions on it. Can I use book proposal coaching for my revision?

Yes, book proposal coaching is designed to work for both writing your proposal and for revising it as well.

What’s the difference between pitching and querying?

Pitching requires a polished book proposal, and if for Nonfiction

If you are writing a nonfiction book, you don’t need to have written the book to land an agent; this is because you are pitching the idea of the book to agents rather than the book itself. You write a book proposal and pitch that to agents. When the agent lands you a publishing deal, you get paid to write the actual book.

Querying requires a polished manuscript, and is for Fiction

If you are writing a fiction book, you need to have written the full book to land an agent, and you query that agent when you reach out to them. Agents representing fiction will ask that you send them a query letter along with a synopsis (your whole book condensed down to about 2 pages), and they will often ask for the first 10 pages or so of your manuscript. Agents will expect you to have written the entire book before querying to them, so if they like your initial query, they might either ask for more pages or for your full manuscript, so be prepared to have that on hand to send them as soon as possible.

What about Memoir? Both

Since Narrative Memoir is currently the hardest market to land agents in, since it’s now the hardest to sell, if you are serious about traditionally publishing a Memoir, the best way to go about it is to both write and polish the whole manuscript and write and polish a book proposal. This will show agents you are serious about and really believe in your book and have put the time and work into having a plan for it.

I work with writers of all three genres to get their pitch and query materials ready and build a solid plan for reaching out to agents.

What’s the benefit of having a pitch or querying strategy, and how can a book coach help with that?

I’m glad you asked, and I can’t recommend this enough!

It’s important to develop a strategy when pitching to agents to avoid unnecessary rejections. Having the support of a professional book coach not only saves you valuable time you would spend researching how to successfully pitch to agents and publishers, but it also saves you the heartache that comes with unnecessary rejections—as we all know, rejections are expected when it comes to submitting your work in this way; but unnecessary rejections can be avoided if you put your best face forward and make your submission the best it can be. This means doing the work and knowing the current standards in the industry, which are both things a professional book coach can help you with.

Another reason why I recommend working with a professional and having a solid strategy BEFORE you begin to pitch or query is because once an agent rejects your work, you cannot go back to them again. This means that if you get rejected by your favorite agents early on for reasons that could have been avoided (for example, you weren’t aware of some specific guideline they had), that’s it for that agent. Work with a professional trained in helping writers pitch and query to minimize the risk of that happening.

Is the Pitch/Query Plan right for me?

You don’t know where to start with pitching or querying to agents…

✔️Do you have a polished book proposal or manuscript that you are ready to pitch or query to agents and publishers but don’t know where to start?
✔️Do you want to avoid unnecessary rejections (or getting rejected by your favorite agents) and would like guidance on how to pitch strategically?
✔️Have you started pitching or querying to agents but are only getting crickets, or the occasional “This isn’t what we are looking for” or “I didn’t connect with your writing“?

…or you have some idea but would like guidance

✔️Do you have a list of some agents and publishers you like and would like to build a strategy around that?
✔️Do you have an opportunity to attend a writing conference where you know there will be agents and would like to develop a plan to pitch to them?

If you answered yes to one or more of these, then yes!

What if I don’t need everything that’s offered in one of the packages? Can I customize it?

Yes, if the package doesn’t fit your needs, we can work out a personalized package for you. For example, if you are interested in the MONTH-TO-MONTH PITCH/QUERY SUPPORT, we can work out a plan for how you would best be supported as you implement your pitch/query plan. Maybe you don’t need accountability, but you would like me to help you add more agents to your agent list. Fill out this intake form and let me know your specific needs and how I can best support you and we can go from there!

“Working with Robin has given me renewed enthusiasm and confidence about my story that had been stuck in the doldrums for over a year. In just a few weeks she helped me identify and strengthen the foundations of the story, giving me the clarity I needed to progress to the next draft. I particularly valued her ability to ask the tough questions and provide feedback on my work in an incredibly thoughtful and compassionate way. I can totally recommend her.”

“My session with Robin was a wonderful experience. She listened to my worries, helped me gauge which goal to focus on, and provided me with feedback and information in a coherent and supportive manner. Her enthusiasm and gentle demeanor gave me confidence to pursue a personal passionate creative project, and I look forward to her endeavors.”

“I would recommend Little Red Bird Publishing to anyone in a heartbeat! There is no one else who I would trust to help me with the editing and publishing of my book. I have zero regrets, and I can look back at the whole process with good memories because she took the pressure I felt with certain tasks and made it an enjoyable thing! She has exceeded all of my expectations and is such a joy to work with. Somehow, Robin takes the tasks that I ask her to take care of and helps me to still be a part of it without it being stressful. That’s exactly what I wanted and needed more than I could even express. It’s very clear that her goal is to help you achieve the outcome you’re after. If you feel intimidated or overwhelmed, this is your girl. I have full confidence that she can do anything she puts her mind to and all of her work is praise-worthy.”

“Two years ago, writing a book and having it published was on my bucket list. But in all reality, I had no hope of seeing it come to fruition. Until I was introduced to Robin and Little Red Bird Publishing. That introduction changed our lives. I would so recommend Little Red Bird Publishing to everyone. Robin was kind, loving, patient, and an incredibly fast worker. In fact, she had our book published within a month — absolutely amazing! If you are like us and feel it’s just a dream to have your book edited and published, contact Robin today. We can testify that she can make your dreams come true.”

“I recommend Little Red Bird publishing to anyone who wants to make their dream of writing a book come true. Robin makes the whole intimidating process of writing, editing, and publishing incredibly easy through a simple step by step process. One of the things I loved most about working with Robin was her organization throughout the whole process! The vision of my book that I had in mind turned out better than I could have imagined thanks to Robin and her patience and diligence. She is always ready to answer questions and has impeccable work ethic. My book was published within a month of sending it to her! It was a pleasure working with her, and I highly recommend Little Red Bird Publishing to any other writers out there!”

“Publishing a book is daunting, and I was about to give up on my dream of turning my manuscript into a book. Then Robin saved me. I was able to sit back and let her take the lead. I really enjoyed her methodical, transparent approach to self-publishing. I knew exactly what stage we were at, at all times. Always very clear and prompt in communication and very much on time. She gave me a lot of confidence and guidance and, thanks to her, the book was published on time, as expected, without any hiccups. The smoothest collaboration ever. Hire her with confidence. She’ll get you published.”

“Working with Little Red Bird Publishing on my book proposal taught me a lot about my writing, specifically that I ‘don’t know what I don’t know’ and how my conversational style fits in the publishing marketplace. I was surprised at how much goes into writing a book proposal. Robin is so comprehensive—she broke down all the steps, took care of most of the heavy lifting, and managed the entire project so I wasn’t too overwhelmed at any point. There is no way I would have been able to tackle all this on my own. I highly recommend!”
