Sample Non-Fiction Book Proposal

Hi, I'm Jo Lynne Nugent. 

I came to the OVWriters Group meeting for the first time on Monday, June 21, 2010, had a great time, learned a lot and shared some tidbits I picked up from my attendance at the WVWriters Conference held in at Cedar Lakes, Ripley, WV,  June 11 - 13, 2010.  Literary Agent Kelly Mortimer from Aguanga, California,  appeared at the WVWriters Conference on June 12 and took 5-minute pitches all afternoon. She shared the web address where you can find her sample non-fiction book proposal:  Once you get there, scroll down a bit and look under Genres for Non-Fiction.  I think you click there and then look for Proposal.  It is a humorous and educational read.  If you want to print it out, be advised: the proposal proper is 15 single-spaced pages followed by the 1st two chapters of the proposed book which appear to be another 60 some pages (because they're at least double spaced), but I don't know for sure, because I stopped the printer after 15 pages.

Kelly also shared her webpage address

Also my blog, the Travelog & Dog Blog, is . I just started writing and blogging in February so be charitable! (Oops! There go those pesky exclamation marks that are discouraged by E.B.White in the Elements of Style! One day I'll learn to avoid them!)

Thanks for making me feel so welcome.  I look forward to atttending again next month.
