Barnabas is writing a new book. Dave is helping launch a few key new titles for B&H. I'm in the midst of putting together a new book proposal for something I've wanted to write (and have been poking away at) for four-plus years. So today, we're digging deep and offering some practical advice for aspiring authors, specifically around what makes a good proposal. Listen in as we discuss:

  • What are a few of the key ingredients of a good book proposal?
  • Why is it helpful to have a literary agent?
  • Should platforms and audiences matter when writing?
  • Why are there so many how-to books on the market today?
  • Would a publisher take a chance on Knowing God today?

As always, thanks to our sponsors:
