Writer’s Digest Books Announces the Upcoming Release of The Weekend Book Proposal by Florida writer Ryan G. Van Cleave

The Weekend Book Proposal will be available nationwide on May 1, 2014

BLUE ASH, Ohio—Writer’s Digest Books announces the upcoming release of The Weekend Book Proposal: How to Write a Winning Proposal in 48 Hours and Sell Your Book (Category: Writing Reference) by Ryan G. Van Cleave. The Weekend Book Proposal will be released in trade paper (ISBN: 978-1-599637-57-0, 256 pages, $17.99) on May 1, 2014.

Written by frequent conference presenter and best-selling author Dr. Ryan G. Van Cleave The Weekend Book Proposal is Van Cleave’s 21st book.  A book that shares information most aspiring writers simply don’t have access to, The Weekend Book Proposaloffers proven strategies, nuts-and-bolts advice, sample queries and proposals, interviews with publishing experts, and “Hit the Gas” tips for speeding up the entire process. In The Weekend Book Proposal, Van Cleave shows readers how to succeed and prosper as a writer—and even sell books prior to writing them.

“The old paradigm—write the book then send out the manuscript and hope for the best—isn’t the way things work anymore,” explains Van Cleave. “This book shows you how the pros work.” Whether you’re a true beginner or a seasoned pro looking to kick your writing career up a notch, Van Cleave’s new book delivers. “I learned things about writing proposals in this book that I didn’t know,” confesses John McNally, the author of more than ten books.

He also serves as a keynote presenter, writing coach, and Creative Writing Coordinator for the Ringling College of Art + Design.
