Hi everyone,

I have read several blogs and articles that reference Memoirs are sold like fiction, and thus need to be submited to Literary Agents and Publishers like fiction.

Does anyone know if this solid for everyone. The answer to this question impacts my timetable for submiting to prospective Literary Agents and Book Publishers. If its like non-fiction, I need only a book proposal. If its like fiction, I need a complete manuscript prior to submiting to anyone. I’m only on page 85 of 250. That could be a while.

Thanks for your help:)
