The Great First Impression Book Proposal

Synopsis: Carolyn Howard-Johnson, has been a UCLA Extension Writers’ Program instructor for nearly a decade. In “The Great First Impression Book Proposal: Everything You Need to Know About Selling Your Book to an Agent or Publisher in Thirty Minutes or Less” she draws upon her decades of experience and expertise to helps authors successfully execute the task they most love to hate — writing a book proposal. In this 54 page booklet Carolyn has taken the guessing out of the book proposal process with a thoroughly ‘user friendly’ and effective step-by-step instructional guide and manual.

Critique: The creation of an effective book proposal cannot be overemphasized as a basic skill set for all aspiring authors seeking publication of their work — and Carolyn Howard-Johnson is a time-tested expert on the subject. Every aspiring (and even seasoned) author needs to obtain and carefully read “The Great First Impression Book Proposal” — and every Creative Writing class should list “The Great First Impression Book Proposal” on their supplemental studies reading lists. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Great First Impression Book Proposal” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $2.99).

About the Author

Sweta Srivastava Vikram is a multi-genre writer and marketing professional living in
New York City. She is the author of Because All Is Not Lost from Modern History Press
and the co-author of Whispering Woes of Ganges & Zambezi (Cyberwit 2010). Her
work has appeared in six countries across three continents. Sweta has held recent artist
residencies and workshops in Portugal, Ireland, and several within USA. She is a graduate of Columbia University.



"In this innovative series, Sweta Srivastava Vikram re-appropriates
color. Cultures and mythologies collide along the way, and the result
is a chapbook that feels like a quest. In the end, the colors are a map
to identity. The child's pink tonsils or the bride's red sari are not
symbols, but rather mile markers. Like Vikram's poems, they lead
toward understanding"

--Erica Wright, Senior Poetry Editor, Guernica



About the Chapbook

The book delves into the implication and philosophy of colors from
a Hindu woman's point of view, from birth until death. The color she
adorns herself with almost depicts the story of her life. Expressed
through different poetic and verbal forms, each color in the book
has its own tone and is specific to different age groups.

  1. Jim Cox has been an advocate for authors for a long, long time–with no #bookbigotry in sight. He also publishes a great author-aid, a newsletter. Sort of a double whammy that authors can appreciate! Thank you, Jim! I do lots of #FrugalBookPromoTips and strongly recommend both his review sites and the newsletter.
