TEXTBOOK WRITING: NOT JUST INCOME FOR THIS YEAR, MONEY FOR LIFE


By any chance are you an expert on something ? Have a modicum of a college degree? Are you a teacher in the School SYSTEM. Conversant with your subject? Well sharpen your pencil. Having your Textbook published is big money. And it comes in year after year, as long as your book’s in print. To accomplish this --to win a contract, you must create a dazzling book proposal -- a 10-page document that demonstrates your expertise, your ability to write and keep HUMOR to a minimum and GRAVITAS to the max.
