For a one-time fee of $98 you will be able to immediately access your own proposal form and begin work. You may edit your proposal as many times as desired, saving and previewing your work each time, until you are satisfied that it is ready for the eyes of reviewing editors.
Once your proposal is complete, you will choose the Submit to Publishers button. This will immediately place your work into the active database for a period of 6 months to allow as many publishers as possible to review it. You may continue to access and edit your proposal at any time during this active phase.
Need professional help with your proposal?
If you would like a professional editor to critique and edit your proposal before you make it available for publisher review, CMS has contracted with the professional literary agency, AuthorTalk. Simply add the desired service when you purchase your CMS proposal package.
(Note: This is not a required step for submission of your proposal, just an additional option available to you.)
