Once you have decided on the kind of publication you would like to pursue you can start sketching out your ideas in a proposal. All proposals should cover five main points:
1. Aims and rationale
A description of the main themes and purpose of the book.
A contents list with chapter titles and a brief summary of what each chapter will contain.
3. Target Market
Explain the intended audience/level of readership for your book. E.g. students, practitioners or CPD.
4. Competing Titles
Any similar books already available and how your book will complete/complement these.
Would this be a print book or a digital resource? What would be the word length?
We realise that it can take time to finalise a proposal and so please do feel free to send us a draft version if you would like to. We’d be happy to provide guidance and advice in advance of sending this for review, should this be helpful.
