Book Proposal: Phase II

In a follow-up to my post titled “Feedback Requested for Book Proposal”, I am writing to let you know that I have entered Phase II of the proposal, in preparation for pitching the book to publishers.

Phase II is perhaps the most challenging aspect of the proposal, as it requires compiling a comprehensive GLOBAL list of strong, empowered, activist women (who also have a flare and love for fashion!). With your support, I know that I will find these awesome women to be featured in the book!

I ask that you take a look at the country list (see below) and if you know a woman (or two!) who fits the above mentioned profile, that you consider sponsoring her for this project.

Once I have a short biography on each woman, I will begin compiling questions unique to her story/experience. It is my hope that I will be able to find a photographer in every country/city that will support this project by doing a photoshoot with each woman. Depending on whether or not the woman speaks English, I will arrange for translation of the interview questions.

Please keep in mind that I am interested in featuring women of all different ages, races, and sexual orientations. When you send in a woman’s profile, please follow this format:

Name, Age, Occupation, City, Country (attach a short biography and contact information)

Argentina
Australia
Bangladesh
Bolivia

Great Idea!

Hi I have a couple of suggestions... Just wanted to let you know that I will send you a list of the women with their bios etc ASAP... Im in the midst of finals now but once I'm done I will get right to this.

Woo hoo

Am so happy that this is moving forward so fruitfully. I'll send out a note to my friends and see what interest is sparked. All the best with this...

Thanks!

Thanks, Janice! I am so excited to get the ball rolling on this project, although it's still quite intimidating as there are so many logistics/details to work out!! Please let me know if you have anyone in mind to be featured.

Warmly,

Jackie
