Writing book proposals (I): 4 things NOT to do
Show Notes

Anthony Haynes writes: Welcome back to the Grey Lit Café for this, the first episode in our second season.

Engy Moussa and I begin the new season with an extended treatment of one specific form of grey literature, namely book proposals. We've decided to devote three episodes to this topic.

We begin with a consideration of why this topic falls into the category of grey literature.

We then outline four pitfalls that are very common and need to be avoided.
