Book proposal complete: soon to be sent to publishers

Post by alberich00 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 5:54 pm

Dear members and friends of the discussion forum:

After several months striving to write and rewrite my generic book proposal in the fewest and most persuasive words possible, I finally finished my book proposal based on the template provided by Oxford University Press. I've emailed it as an attachment to two friends with significant experience in publishing and/or reviewing high-end material of this kind, and when they get back to me with their advice I'll incorporate into a final, definitive version and email it off to OUP or, if OUP doesn't bite, to any other academic presses with a history of publication of quality Wagner scholarship, such as Princeton Univ. Press and Cambridge Univ. Press. There's also a possibility that Penguin/Random House might be interested in a book like this. I'll keep you all posted on the results.

Your friend from,

Paul Brian Heise
