Mark’s Book Proposals That Didn’t Yet Find a Home (Meant to Inspire Other Writers or Publishers)

These are book proposals I wrote at one time or another for which I never signed a contract. As you can tell, writing a detailed, convincing book proposal takes a great deal of research and time. I am putting these proposals here in hopes that some other writer will take them up if I don’t get to them in the meantime. I would be glad to help. –Mark Pendergrast
