Book Proposal Submission Guidelines

Booktalk Africa receives a large number of unsolicited manuscripts every day, of which we may publish less than one percent. Therefore, we no longer review unsolicited manuscripts. In some circumstances, we may review a book proposal submitted using the following guidelines:

  • The Proposed Title
  • Description of the target reader
  • An Outline (about 250 words)
  • Chapter by chapter development (one-line summary)
  • One or two sample chapters
  • Statement on what distinguishes your book from others in the same category.
  • Author’s profile
