Book Publishing Sample Proposal - The Narrative

The Web Production Cookbook with Dreamweaver and Fireworks

With the release of Macromedia Studio MX more and more people want to take advantage of the integrated tools in both Fireworks and Dreamweaver to increase productivity and site consistency and to provide richer feature packed functionality for their web sites. There are no existing titles that have the same or nearly the same scope or teaching method as this book.

The Objective

Macromedia Studio MX is projected to be top selling product in the next few years and this book plans to take advantage of this opportunity. This book provides the following. Instructions that go beyond those provided in the documentation that accompanies the software. Extensive examples of what can be accomplished with the software and step by step instructions on how to achieve those results.

Time saving tips and tricks from the experts.

The Opportunity

While there are several books on the market that are targeted toward novice users my book will help both new and more experienced users get the most out of the software thus reaching broad audience. Include the tutorial instructions needed by novices plus advanced techniques for the users who already have basic familiarity with the tools. Provide hundreds of visual examples screenshots of actual product screens and web pages to assist with quick learning and accurate results. Offer tips and tricks found nowhere else.

The Solution

This book will appeal to all users of Macromedia Studio MX and should sell much better than any rivals in the marketplace. Timely marketing publication and distribution to coincide with release of the Macromedia Studio MX package is critical however. I don’t believe there is currently any title that has the same or nearly the same scope or teaching method as this book.

As far as Fireworks and Dreamweaver books currently in print there are the following. Building Websites with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and Fireworks MX by Margot McKee. This book is targeted at the new user and is largely repeat of instructions provided in the online documentation shipped with the software.

Creative Guide to Using Dreamweaver MX Creative Guide to Using Fireworks MX with CDROM by Conrad Oxley. While these books both teach the basics neither provides extensive examples of what can be accomplished with the software and neither provides tips and tricks for advanced users. This book assumes that the reader has general or casual knowledge of working with graphics and HTML to produce basic web page using the programs of their choice. With the release of Macromedia Studio MX more and more people want to take advantage of the integrated tools in both Fireworks and Dreamweaver to increase productivity and site consistency and to provide richer more feature packed functionality for their web sites.

This book's audience covers wide range of users; they may be current Dreamweaver users at any level looking to incorporate Fireworks into their workflow or vice versa. This audience may include experienced HTML developers migrating from HomeSite PC or BBEdit Mac to Dreamweaver MX. Novice web designers and developers can use the solutions in this book to advance their design and development skills.

All levels of users can take advantage of the recipes in this book to separate content from structure and presentation through the use of server side technologies and Cascading Style Sheets. To facilitate creating an environment where sales can take place the following marketing plan is to be implemented. The target market has been described in the "Market and Audience" section of the proposal.

Planning Process. Target those bookstores both online and physical locations that specialize in sales of books for developers and other users of software products. Marketing Venues. Bookstores that serve hi tech users including but not limited to community college and university bookstores as well as general online and physical bookstores such as Amazon Borders Barnes & Noble etc. Additional opportunities might be found at conferences that feature Macromedia software and Macromedia may be willing to share marketing information with the publisher to help promote both the software and this book. The author also plans to keep current her web site which will also help promote this book.

Marketing Budget. The marketing budget will be defined by the publisher. Marketing Time Table. The marketing time table will be defined by the publisher with advance input from the author to highlight opportunities such as technical conferences and college classes that the publisher may not be aware of. It might be advisable to contact Macromedia to see if the company is amenable to joint marketing efforts.

Follow up Marketing Plan. The publisher may choose to approach Macromedia and acquire if possible the company’s list of registered buyers of Macromedia Studio MX. This list could then be used for targeted mailing campaign to advertise this book. Marketing Analysis. As with most books the effectiveness of the marketing campaign will be demonstrated by the number of books sold via internet and physical locations vs. the number of returns. Key project dates are outlined below.

Dates are "best guess" estimates and are subject to change before being locked in by binding contract. Following is summarized list of chapters along with their estimated page counts. The Web Production Cookbook with Dreamweaver and Fireworks.
