Book Review: How to Write and Sell Nonfiction Books for Kindle
Author Nancy Hendrickson speaks from experience. She makes her living as a freelance writer and says she quickly realized "...a slow writer was going to be a financially poor writer." Thus she set about learning to write faster. This ebook is the result of her journey from writer to highly successful writer.
Nancy's five strategies are laid out in detail, along with suggested amounts of time each stage should take. From topic selection, outlining, and gathering research/resources through writing and proofing/polishing, she lays out the road map that gets your book from start to finish in 72 hours. Follow her steps, in order, and see what happens. You have nothing to lose and a great deal to gain from a finished book! An unfinished book makes you no money.
I know we have all seen more "How to write blah, blah, blah" books than we'd like to remember. The best ones, however, promote simple, repeatable steps that keep the writer focused and moving forward at all times. Many beginners face writer's block or get bogged down editing before they finish their first draft or otherwise get stalled because they don't have a set of procedures. Could you run any other type of business that way? Whether you have a dairy farm, a trucking business, or a medical practice, there are certain things you must do consistently and in order if you are to succeed. Once you know and practice the right steps, they become automatic. Then you can just let the work flow, knowing you are always moving in the right direction.
I especially appreciated her advice on finding experts--something nonfiction authors often need. Unless you only write about what you already know, it is good to maintain a list of contacts who are experts in various fields. Having access to experts expands the range of topics you can tackle when you write.
This book is well worth its modest cost. The author practices what she preaches and offers sound advice for all writers.
