Non-Fiction Book Structure

by Robert

What is the best way to structure my book?


I want to write the book in chronological order but, at the same time, share the activities of 4 different agencies. The four stories will converge at a specific point in the book and then stop at different points.

Each of the four stories include a lot of detailed data and I don't want to overload the reader.

Thanks in advance for you help!

Structure is flexible

Perhaps you could tell each of the four stories chronologically until the point where they converge, then turn that into another chapter that takes the information from that point.

As long as you are clearly sharing relevant stories and information, readers will stay with you. How you share the information has much more to do with it than the overall structure.

That's not to say that structure is unimportant, but it is flexible. Try outlining your book for different structures. Then go with the one that works best.
