More than 75% of all books published are non-fiction. Publishers and readers are actively looking for new non-fiction titles, and they have a long shelf life, often selling well for decades. That means it's far easier to get non-fiction published, and to make money from it.

This workshop shows you how to select the right category and topic for your book, how to organize and write it, and how to get it published. Step by step instructions and clear explanations make it easy for you to get into print and start your career as a successful non-fiction author!
