The fun part is over. The zombies are sitting patiently in a corner waiting for me to get the next step done before their world domination: the nonfiction book proposal. I swear this is worse than NaNo. :P For the months I've researched online and in books on how to craft a witty yet professional proposal and balled up paper in a corner with tear-stained rough drafts of overviews and query letters hiding under my desk with only crackers and flat diet Coke to sustain me yet I only have the Chapter Outline and Query letter done (which rocks outloud).
Writing a humor book proposal is a different beast from the others, obviously. There are only a few ways to become an expert on zombies and I'm loathe to take the final step so that part of the proposal will remain undead. Marketing for zombies is growing, however, with the influx of new zombies sites on the Internet (god love 'em, these people are twisted) so expect me at a few Zombie Walks across the country looking for lonely Hell's Handmaidens to give some advice. My target audience spans the Undead, romance addicts, stalkers and people with a sense of humor that's a bit off the charts. I think I nailed it. ;)
Anyone out there with advice on how to write a humor nonfic proposal? Heeeeelp!
