So you wanna write a nonfiction book? Great! But where do you begin? With some quick research you'll discover that 95% of people who start to write their book never finish it. Well that's a bit disheartening, isn't it? It must be really hard if so many people gave up before they even finished. The truth is, it's not actually all that difficult, but there is some work involved, and that's one of the reasons why so many people quit when the novelty of being a writer wore off. They had this pie-in-sky fantasy of sitting at their keyboard and letting their muse take over... that the words would just flow through them as their fingers danced across the keyboard. Hogwash! That's not the way it works. Waiting for inspiration to strike means you might have one book finished by the time you're on your death bed... and your book will probably suck. Sorry, but it's true. If you don't spend time honing your craft by only writing when you "feel" like it, or you don't have your ideas organized properly so people can make sense of your book, if you actually finish it, it's not going to be very good. But... There is a "secret" to writing. Do you want to know what it is? The secret to writing is to write. That's it. That's the big secret. Write every day and every day your writing will get better. It doesn't matter if you are writing fiction, non-fiction, a screenplay, or a song, you have to organize your thoughts and ideas or else you'll end up with gibberish that nobody will want to read. I've written all those things - I'm a published songwriter, author, filmmaker, and I wrote a weekly newspaper column, so I have a wee bit of experience, which is why I wrote this guide... to share my experiences with you to save you time, money, and frustration so you're not just another wannabe writer who kinda-sorta tried but gave up. Let me help you be the exception to the rule so you actually finish your book. But why non-fiction? Because they are easier to write. AND they're easier to sell. Ignore those so-called gurus who tell you to find a profitable niche and write about it because chances are, you'll grow tired or bored (or both) and give up. With my guide, you'll learn how to find profitable niches you actually want to write about! You'll learn how to outline and organize your book so you're not writing blind. And you'll learn about formatting, book covers, and pricing your book. But what if you don't want to sell your book? What if just knowing you are helping people is reward enough? In this guide you'll learn why charging for your book will actually help more people than giving it away for free! If you always want to write a book but didn't know where to start, or perhaps you're worried that you're not an 'expert' or have enough authority in your niche to write a book about it, then this guide is for you. "One of these days, is none of these days." That old proverb pretty much sums it up... if you keep waiting until "one of these days" to write that book you keep saying you're going to write, you'll never write it! I know it, you know it... so stop thinking about writing your book and let's get started!

From the author of the bestselling Why We Suck comes a searing comic look at these divisive times, skewering liberals and conservatives alike with a signature dose of sarcasm and common sense. In an America so gluten-free that a box of jelly donuts is now a bigger threat than Vladimir Putin, where college kids are more afraid of Ann Coulter than HIV, it’s time for someone to stand up and make us all smell the covfefe. Dr. Denis Leary is that guy. With Why We DON’T Suck: And How All of Us Need to Stop Being Such Partisan Little Bitches, Denis is on a devoted mission to #MakeAmericaLaughAgain. Using the clamorous political atmosphere as a starting point, he takes a bipartisan look at the topics we all hold so dear to our patriotic hearts—including family, freedom, and the seemingly endless search for fame and diet vodka. Denis will answer important questions like: When will Hillary blame herself? Why does Beyoncé think he’s Bryan Adams? And why doesn’t he follow the millennial lead and post pictures of his food on social media? (Spoiler alert: He’s too busy actually eating it.) Not that Denis has anything against millennials: “When it comes to science, math, and technological advances, this generation has done more in three and a half decades than any other age group in history. What did my generation do? Cocaine and quaaludes mostly. With a side order of really stupid haircuts.” Dr. Leary is here to remind us of what truly makes America great, even though we’re #7 on the most recent list of Best Countries to Live In. Which may sound bad but means we still make the playoffs.

A collection of essays from today’s most acclaimed authors—from Cheryl Strayed to Roxane Gay to Jennifer Weiner, Alexander Chee, Nick Hornby, and Jonathan Franzen—on the realities of making a living in the writing world. In the literary world, the debate around writing and commerce often begs us to take sides: either writers should be paid for everything they do or writers should just pay their dues and count themselves lucky to be published. You should never quit your day job, but your ultimate goal should be to quit your day job. It’s an endless, confusing, and often controversial conversation that, despite our bare-it-all culture, still remains taboo. In Scratch, Manjula Martin has gathered interviews and essays from established and rising authors to confront the age-old question: how do creative people make money? As contributors including Jonathan Franzen, Cheryl Strayed, Roxane Gay, Nick Hornby, Susan Orlean, Alexander Chee, Daniel Jose Older, Jennifer Weiner, and Yiyun Li candidly and emotionally discuss money, MFA programs, teaching fellowships, finally getting published, and what success really means to them, Scratch honestly addresses the tensions between writing and money, work and life, literature and commerce. The result is an entertaining and inspiring book that helps readers and writers understand what it’s really like to make art in a world that runs on money—and why it matters. Essential reading for aspiring and experienced writers, and for anyone interested in the future of literature, Scratch is the perfect bookshelf companion to On Writing, Never Can Say Goodbye, and MFA vs. NYC.

WELCOME TO STARLIGHT: A sweet and sexy small-town romance series set at a family-owned pub in the picturesque snowmobiling town of Snowy Ridge, Wisconsin. Becca Stillwell didn’t have the highest of hopes for her move back to Snowy Ridge, Wisconsin, following a disastrous divorce. But it was a chance to start over and find her own way in the world. Rekindling a childhood friendship with Luci Foster and taking on two jobs has kept her busy and hasn’t allowed for too much time to think about her ex and his new model girlfriend. With hard work and a sense of humor, things could only improve, right? When Cooper Stone turned thirty years old, he decided to get serious. He’d always had the dream of owning his own business so he talked his brothers into moving to Snowy Ridge with him and opening up their own snowmobile repair shop. After his own failed marriage, he had no intention of ever being distracted by love again. His business was his number one priority and he was set on keeping it that way. When Becca crashes her car into Cooper’s car one fateful morning in the market parking lot, he could never imagine she’d crash her way into his heart as well. Two broken-hearted people, both afraid to love again, find their deepest wishes come true when they let go and believe that they’ve been led to exact right place and found the exact right person. *** Look for the entire Love at Starlight series: CHRISTMAS AT STARLIGHT – Amber & Nick (Snowy Ridge: A Love at Starlight Novella, Book 0.5) COMING HOME – Jessie & Cade (Snowy Ridge: Love at Starlight, Book 1) TAKING CHANCES – Wynn & Bryce (Snowy Ridge: Love at Starlight, Book 2) FINDING ME – Luci & Evan (Snowy Ridge: Love at Starlight, Book 3) CHANGE OF HEART – Becca & Cooper (Snowy Ridge: Love at Starlight, Book 4) BETTING ON YOU – April & Cash (Snowy Ridge: Love at Starlight, Book 5)

Read this if you want to sell more books, make more money as an author, or rank higher in your category. My name is Nick Vulich. The first thing you should know about me is I'm not a writer, and I'm not an expert on self-publishing either. I never worked in the industry, and I don't have any experience working for the big publishers. In fact, the only thing I consider myself an expert in is how to sell on eBay, Amazon, and Fiverr... So why should you listen to me? Like most indie authors, I came into publishing through the back door. I had a story to tell, and one day I just sat down and let it all come out. What I wrote wasn't pretty, or polished...but, it helped a lot of people sell more stuff on eBay. What I couldn't say with fancy prose, I made up for with enthusiasm. Because of that, my books sold. I'm not going to lie to you. It wasn't easy. I read just about every book available on self-publishing. I studied up on KDP Free days, Countdown Deals, price pulsing...
