As a service to AuthorCraft, Literary Agent Susan Mears is offering to include book proposals from our members in her portfolio at the 2016 London Book Fair which is happening next month at Olympia. Susan has meetings already set up with the commissioning editors she knows from all of the top publishing houses.
In those meetings she will find out what genres they are looking for and what gaps they have in their lists for the year ahead. Based on that, she will pitch the books to them that meet their criteria from her portfolio. Following the fair every book that met with interest are followed up with a proposal, and sample chapters.
Susan will also be travelling to the USA to meet with the top American publishing houses and will be taking her portfolio there as well.
If you would like you book to be included, then Susan will require a ‘One Pager’ which follows a standard layout. ┬áTo download a Book Proposal Template CLICK HERE
