Writing Nonfiction: Turning
Thoughts into Books by Dan Poynter describes the New "Book"
Model: the technology has finally arrived to enable us to write,
produce, sell and promote books faster, easier and cheaper. You
will discover how to build your book rather than just write it.
You will multipurpose your "book"
into downloadable, CD and ebook versions. You will wring maximum
value out of your work by spinning off audiotapes, videotapes, magazine
excerpts, foreign-language editions and more. In
fact, Writing Nonfiction will be your constant reference on writing
and producing books as well as marketing your manuscript.
You will learn how to break the topic down into easy-to-attack projects;
how and where to do research; a process that makes writing easy;
how to improve material; how to evaluate your publishing options
and how to develop an individualized and workable plan. This book
will help you decide whether to sell to a large publisher, a specialized
publisher, get an agent or publish yourself. Using the "pilot system"
of organization, the binder concept and the check-off lists will
accelerate your book writing. If you are in the thinking-planning
stages or the writing stage on your manuscript, you need this book.
