As a publisher/agent member of ECPA, you have password access to our online member database of book proposals. This service was initiated by ECPA member publishers in order to provide a quality and efficient channel for reviewing unsolicited book proposals.
Potential authors upload their book proposals to the CBP database where they are active for 6 months. Each proposal includes subject category, topic, the writer’s background and publishing history, a book synopsis and writing sample. A writer may also choose to indicate if they are from an under-represented ethnicity.
You are able to login to the system at any time to search, sort, and review the proposals that may fit your interest. There are no letters of rejection to send, only fast review of multiple proposals in one sitting.
Interested in a proposal to share at your next acquisitions meeting? The one-step print button will allow you to print to pdf for just that purpose. And if interested in contracting with the author, simply reach them via their phone or email provided at the top of their proposal.
Sort by category of choice, submission date, author name, under-represented ethnicity, etc.
