“John knows the world of publishing like the back of his hand and provided just the right high value tool for my co-author and me. His book proposal template gave us very specific guidance (much more than other guides) on how to write a winning proposal. We did "win" and got a book contract with a great publisher. The odds of doing so are very long and John's template and advice helped us beat the odds.”
