I've been asked for a book proposal and two chapters from an editor. Which is exciting, even if the book isn't something I'm 100% passionate about writing. But to be honest, I'm not sure exactly what a proposal entails, or what format it should take.
Is it like a query blurb? A longer synopsis? Or something halfway in between?
And is there a specific layout editors expect?
Does anyone know the answers to this? At the moment I have about 1.5 pages, single spaced, outlining what I think the story will be. Given I'm a pantser, and never do outlines, this is more than I usually start a book with, and I'm entirely unsure if I'll stick with it once I start writing.
I also haven't included the ending in my proposal because I don't know what it is going to be. My MC has 2 choices and until I get to know her better through writing the story, I don't know which way she'll lean.
If any of you know about proposals, could you share your insight?
