"When I first started writing all I wanted was for a publishing veteran to sit me down and say 'Listen: here's what you need to do.' Margot does exactly that—with friendliness, savvy, humor, clarity, and grace. Gone is the foggy mystery of publishing: here is your one-stop guide to delivering what publishers are looking for."
Sarah Arthur, author of A Light So Lovely: The Spiritual Legacy of Madeleine L'Engle, Author of A Wrinkle in Time
"Margot is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and 100% on your team. Margot offered invaluable input for both of my book proposals and I'm confident this course will help you to successfully navigate the book-proposal maze.”
Dorothy Littell Greco, author of Making Marriage Beautiful and the forth-coming Marriage in the Middle (IVP Sept 2020).
“Margot Starbuck offers a comprehensive masterclass in crafting a successful nonfiction book proposal. Her specific tips, proven strategies, and professional templates remove the mystery of how to write and submit a strong proposal.  Margot's sincere and encouraging style made me feel like I was sitting across the table from a good friend who explained the entire process from behind to end, and cheered me on the whole time.”
Patricia Alderman
“Margot Starbuck has produced the must-see/-hear webinar on how to write a nonfiction book proposal that will hook publishers. I’ve read a dozen books on the subject—many hours, many dollars spent. This webinar tells you everything you need to know in one hour. If you are serious about publishing your book, don’t miss this!”
Heather MacLaren Johnson
"I wholeheartedly endorse this webinar, which taught me, among other things, the value of securing endorsements for my own writer’s web site. Margot provides a clear and thorough roadmap through the book proposal process, and I now feel empowered to consider the ways I can build platform based on my own personality so that the book proposal can then follow. Well done, Margot!"
