Writing a book proposal is VERY different than writing you book, and there is a secret to writing it so that it doesn’t end up in the round file (aka the trash.) I’ve asked the award winning Lisa Tener to share her strategy to writing an excellent book proposal  on episode 145 of Amplify Your Success Podcast.
