How to Publish Your Nonfiction Book

By  Rudy Shur

Description

While many writers dream of seeing their books in print, most don’t succeed simply because they don’t know the ropes. Written by a publisher with over three decades of experience, How to Publish Your Nonfiction Book was designed to maximize your chance of getting your nonfiction work published.


The book begins by helping you define your book’s category, audience, and marketplace. You are then guided in choosing the most appropriate publishing companies for your work, crafting a winning proposal, and submitting your package in the best way possible. Special sections allow you to be a savvy player in the contract game, and fill you in on options such as self-publishing. Most important, this book helps you avoid the errors that often prevent writers from reaching their goal. Here is a proven system for taking your work from the desk drawer to the bookstore.
