Why are publishers turning down my book proposal?

In this series of posts we aim to pass on as much useful information as we can to those wanting to get published. We’ve gained many insights over 18 years in publishing, during which time we’ve commissioned and published hundreds of books – and, sadly, had to turn down a few hundred more!

Many authors did themselves no favours by the way in which they pitched their book. Here we will explain why some book proposals don’t work. We’ll also explain how observing a few important principles can transform your pitch into a compelling proposition.
