LEARN HOW TO WRITE NON-FICTION THAT STANDS OUT, WHATEVER THE SUBJECT.
Write Fantastic Non-fiction and Get it Published is designed specifically for you, if you want to turn your idea into a book. If you're wondering where to start, this book clearly explains how to select a subject, hone your research skills, explore different genres and styles and edit your work. It does more than simply review the different genres, however - it will, crucially, help you to master the skill of assessing your own work objectively - essential for any would-be writer. With your confidence strengthened through practical tips, insights and exercises, it will also give you the crucial insider information on and how to approach a publisher or find an agent. Written by an author with a track record of helping new writers secure agents and publishing deals, it will take you from 'would-be writer' to 'writer' quickly and painlessly.
