If you’re not a writer, don’t worry. You don’t have to have one sentence written, and you do not have to be a professional writer to publish a powerful nonfiction book. You need to simply have an idea – and the commitment to see the process through.
The ultimate guide to writing a nonfiction book. This book addresses all reasons you may balk at writing your book and gives you the motivation and steps to start writing.
Producing a professional book begins with professional-quality writing, which may feel like a big barrier to you because you don’t think you write well. First-time authors need help to craft and develop a message that resonates with readers.
Before you begin, you must start with the structure of the book and then layer on good writing. Then you can work with professionals to design a beautiful cover and interior for your book. But even if you get the design elements exactly right, they can’t compensate for a poorly written book.
Nancy Erickson is a thought-leader in the publishing industry, and her step-by-step method that helps people who aren’t writers become authors of high-impact nonfiction books is laid out in this book.
