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).

Product Details

Randolph the Moose lives with his mother in the Great White North. After a chance encounter with the reindeer from Santa Claus’ sleigh-pulling team, Randolph finds new joy in trail running as he trains to join the reindeer in Santa’s flight school. But when the head elf places him at the workshop loading dock instead (due to his tremendous bulk), Randolph has to use his brains and work ethic to earn respect at his new job… and even save Christmas.

Imagine Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, except...

  • Randolph has a healthy self-image
  • Randolph has a more positive outlet for his feelings
  • Randolph runs, but not away from his problems
  • Randolph is pro-active, refusing to let Santa’s workshop define him as a moose

  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.
