Is there a book in you? Blue Pencil Consulting can coach you through the process of crafting a book proposal or act as a "manuscript midwife" to help you write that book and get it out into the world.
We help authors with book proposals - from concept to final editing before submittal to publisher or agent. Crafting a sharp, focused book proposal helps you make a positive impression and can move you closer to getting a book contract.
