Strengthening Your Proposal
Our book proposal package service is intended for scholars preparing a book proposal to send to publishers. You may be wondering whether your book proposal is strong enough to catch the editor’s eye and whether it portrays your research in the best possible light. Our book publication package includes a constructive peer review of your proposal completed by a scholar in your general field with the aim of helping you improve your proposal and prepare it for submission to a publisher. Our proposal reviewers can help you avoid embarrassing mistakes and increase your chances of the publisher passing it on for review.
How We Can Help
We can help you improve the following aspects of your manuscript (as relevant):
- Content review
- Clarifying arguments
- Identifying missing sections/materials
- Publisher recommendations
- Suggestions for improving pitch
- Clarifying intended audience
- Clarifying contribution to research
- Identifying and distinguishing from other works in the field
Summary of Recommendations
You will receive comments and suggestions throughout the manuscript as well as a summary of our main suggestions. This service includes one hour of further review and/or follow-up questions. If you would like our further input on your manuscript, this will be charged in addition.
This service does not include addressing revisions you make following the academic review (beyond the hour allotted), responding to journal questions or feedback, or language editing of your manuscript. We can assist you with language editing (and/or formatting) as a separate service. While we are dedicated to helping you improve your manuscript prior to submission, we cannot guarantee acceptance or that reviewers will respond favorably to your proposal.
