The Fast-Track Course on How to Write a Nonfiction Book Proposal (Great Books for Writers)

The Fast-Track Course on How to Write a Nonfiction Book Proposal - Stephen Blake Mettee **Originally posted on www.bunnycates.com**I always have a hard time blogging/reviewing non-fiction books. Its not like you can critique the story, or the characters. LOL… So this is just going to be quick.As you can see from my reading updates on goodreads, I was taking notes before I was even half way through this book. Content wise, this book was superb. It is a small book, but that is ok because what is included, is useful. There didn’t seem to be any “filler” chapters. You know how in some books, it is almost like they just include some stuff to reach a certain page count? That is not in this book. I found the information very useful.I am someone who has only ever read Writing Business books with regards to FICTION, I was shocked to see the differences between how you approach fiction vs. non-fiction. The entire process is different actually. The fact that there are example contracts and proposals inside WITH a breakdown of the information (so it is kind of idiot proof) makes the the book well worth the cost.I can honestly say that I learned a great deal from this tiny book. Even though I do not plan on writing a non-fiction book, I think it is good information to have on my “back burner”.In Conclusion:I think this book was a MUST READ for anyone thinking about writing a non-fiction book. It is full of no nonsense tips and explanations that will help the reader gain an understanding of the “business side” of writing.review placeholder: Excellent, excellent. The sample contract and explanation there of are worth the price of the book, alone. Not to mention all of the other resources listed. Full review to come.
