    Book Proposal Question

    This question has probably been asked a hundred times before but I just wanted to know if the different sections of a book proposal are supposed to be labelled. I know roughly that there are supposed to be sections or paragraphs about marketing and stuff like that but I don't know if in the structure of the book proposal, you're supposed to label them as such.

    Yes, absolutely. You should also start each section a new page if sending the proposal as an attachment. If pasting onto an email, just be sure your labels stand out from the rest of your text.

    Yes, they have to be labeled. Separating everything into sections helped me a lot to keep things straight. In fact, I would take one section with me to work and work on it during lunch or commuting. This helped me by forcing me to deal with the sections I hated to write (marketing).
