You Can Write Nonfiction Books and Get Published

Why should you be writing nonfiction books?

Well, of the more than 50,000 books printed each year, fewer than 5,000 are fiction. That means that more than 45,000 nonfiction books are being published. Every year.

Once you sell a book to a publisher, it can keep making you money for years. In fact, while the average novel has a shelf life of a few months, nonfiction books can remain in print for years.

What does this mean? There is a healthy market for nonfiction titles. Good ideas for nonfiction are in high demand. And you can make a decent long-term living. It's all a matter of choosing a book topic that people want.

The possibilities for writing nonfiction books are endless. You don't even have to be an expert in your chosen topic. Instead, you find experts to share their knowledge with you and your readers.

How do you get started?

The steps to write a book are not as complicated as you might think. You don't even have to write the book until you know a publisher wants it. You'll be writing a proposal instead. Whether you are writing children's books or writing an autobiography, you will rely on the same systematic approach.

Mine your nonfiction reading list and take book notes. Follow the book writing tips for the type of book you want to write, whether it's how to write a biography or how to write an e-book.
