If this is a project that Marcil-O’Farrell is interested in discussing further, we may request certain sections of a standard non-fiction book proposal or a proposal in its entirety. The proposal should include an overview of the book concept, your biography, a marketing section, a comparable books section, chapter summaries and a sample chapter.
