Book Writing & Publishing Demystified
Approached from page one, writing a book appears to be a long, steep climb. And once you reach the summit, you have to hunt for an agent or a publisher. With the larger publishers concentrating on potential best sellers by well-known authors, it is virtually impossible for the new writer to catch the attention of a publisher—or even an agent. But the situation is not hopeless; on the contrary, there is an easy solution because the book writing-publishing model just changed.
Writing Nonfiction 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.
With cookbook-like instructions, Poynter recommends and shows how to cut out the middlemen by doing it yourself. You will learn how to select a salable subject, gather material and break down the book into easy-to-attack pieces. Writing Nonfiction is full of tips and tricks for writing your book.
Dan Poynter is the author of more than 80 books, 50 monographs and over 500 magazine articles, most of them on various aspects of book writing and publishing. Most of his books have been through five or more revised editions and many appear in several other languages. A consultant to the book-publishing field, Dan Poynter has coached thousands of successful writers and publishers.
You may obtain the 156-page book from bookstores as well as directly from the publisher for $14.95 plus $4.00 shipping (and $1.16 sales tax if shipped to a California address).
