This book originally started life as How to Write a Non-Fiction Book — a series of three long articles for a writing magazine.
I’ve now updated the articles, added a lot of extra material, thrown in the word ‘oomphlessness’ — for real! — and the result is a fact-packed ebook called Writing Your Non-Fiction Book.
It’s the first of what I hope will be several ‘special’ Mistakes Writers Make guides, to complement the ’50 Mistakes’ guides.
Part 1 takes the reader through the process of coming up with the idea for the book, through to proposing it and selling it to a publisher.
Part 2 covers the actual research and writing — as well as understanding the contract — copyright, licensing, terms and conditions and all.
Part 3, meanwhile, shows what you can do to help publicise and market your book.
And you can find it on Amazon here.
