Author: Educate Thyself!

Thinking of submitting a proposal before completing your manuscript?
Read The Rejecter's take on the subject here.
An excerpt:
"The traditional reason that a proposal is submitted is so that the author has the money to go do the research required to write the book, which may involve things like taking time off work or travel or acquiring rights to photos or just, you know, income to justify their time. That's the only reason an editor would put cash up front to a writer, and they would only do it with a VERY thorough proposal unless you're a celebrity, and even then you should have your ghostwriter already chosen."
