how to outline a nonfiction book for trad publishing

I’m in the middle of outlining a nonfiction book for spells and magick, but I can’t figure out how to flesh it out more. Here’s what I have so far:

  • Part 1 The Beginning
    • Poem for this Book
    • Introduction
    • So here’s the Question
  • Part 2 The Power of Intentions
    • Definition of Intentions for Spell Casting
    • Examples of Intentions for Spell Casting
    • Overall Review
  • Part 3 The Power of Reasoning
    • Definition of Reasoning for Spell Casting
    • Examples of Reasoning for Spell Casting
    • Overall Review
  • Part 4 The end
    • How and why this Book can help you
    • What did we learn?
    • Many Blessings!

I don’t write non-fiction, but my understanding is the proposal is basically what each chapter contains.

Ah.

That’s what I was asking. How can I get it expanded more?

We don’t know the subject matter, so we don’t know what should or shouldn’t be included.

It’s about prepping the intentions and reasoning in casting spells.

It’s based from my experience as a Dianic Wiccan whenever I cast magick.

Here’s Jane Friedman’s take on it:

Ok, thanks. :slight_smile:

I understand what it’s about. But I can’t help you expand the book because I’m not a Dianic Wiccan. I don’t know what info should be in the book itself.
