I have an idea for a book. What do I do next?

The first step is to submit a book proposal. Whether you want to write a full-length book or a short booklet, your book proposal defines the goals of your project and should be detailed enough to help you structure and write your manuscript. Your proposal needs to reflect your thorough planning of the topic and the type of information you want to present. Because it will be reviewed by a team of experts at SAS, it is important to present your proposal in such a way that others understand it and see its potential as clearly as you do.
