Author Discusses Importance of Book Proposal

Barry Silverstein, co-author of the book, Let's Make Money, Honey, writes about the importance of creating a book proposal before writing a non-fiction book for Foreword Reviews

Silverstein's proposal for a book that chronicles the experiences of a couple who started a service business became the impetus to write Let's Make Money, Honey. He writes, "I believed in the book, so I proceeded to turn the book proposal into a manuscript. Having the outline from the proposal made the writing process that much easier. ... My research suggested that there were few if any books on the market that discussed exactly how a couple could start a service business together. The book was recently published and has received excellent reviews from credible sources."

The book is available as a print or ebook from major online booksellers, including Amazon.

Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 4.21.14 PMLet's Make Money, Honey: The Couple's Guide to Starting a Service Business has been selected as a finalist in the Business/Economics category of the 2015 INDIEFAB Book Awards. This the is 18th annual edition of the awards, which recognize excellence in independent publishing.

Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of indie publishers, university presses, and self-published authors whose work stands out from the crowd. In the next three months, a panel of more than 130 volunteer librarians and booksellers will determine the winners in 66 categories based on their experience with readers and patrons.

“The 2015 INDIEFAB finalist selection process is as inspiring as it is rigorous,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “The strength of this list of finalists is further proof that small, independent publishers are taking their rightful place as the new driving force of the entire publishing industry.”

The awards ceremony will take place in June at the American Library Association Annual Conference.
