  • I wonder if it is still possible to get an advance on a non-fiction proposal. I have a meeting with an agent in a couple of weeks for mine, and I have no idea what to expect.

    • Yep - you can get good advances on the back of a proposal only. It's happened for me, more than once. Info on writing a proposal here: https://jerichowriters.com/nonfiction-book-proposal/

      • Thanks Harry. I had already done the proposal - this is the next step, meeting with an agent and in-house editor to discuss "next steps" whatever that means. I am 65,000 words into the project so it feels like I have something more meaty now that I can actually pitch with more substance behind me.
