Official Review: How to Write A Brilliant Nonfiction Book

Post by Ria710 » 

[Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of “How to Write A Brilliant Nonfiction Book” by Suzan St Maur.]

Book Cover


4 out of 4 stars


Want to write a book, but don’t know where to start? How to Write A Brilliant Nonfiction Book by Suzan St Maur is the perfect guide to help you write your first book. The book is split into 4 parts; part 1: before you start writing your book, part 2: how to plan then write your book. Part 3: how to get your book published, and part 4: how to promote and sell your book. It contains step-by-step instructions on how to make your book the best. The author is a professional writer who has written 37 nonfiction books.

I really liked the cover of this book. It immediately caught my attention, and it’s what made me want to read the book in the first place. The author provides step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow. The book teaches you everything, from the point of creating your title, to publishing your book. The book has it all. I like the author’s writing style. It feels like the author is having a conversation with you. I also like the way the author structured the book. All the important tips are in bold, and there are lists in bullet point form. This makes it easier to read, and it’s easier to remember the information.

Talking about information, I like that the author doesn’t waffle, and instead, she gets straight to the point. The author included the perfect amount of information. It’s not too much that it becomes overwhelming. It’s just the right amount. Furthermore, I enjoyed the author’s humour throughout. It makes the book more fun to read.

There’s nothing that I disliked about the book. Everything was planned out great, and it was well written. At only 116 pages, it is a short book, and it can be read in one sitting. I like that the author provides her email so that readers can reach out to her if they have any problems. This is really nice because it shows she really cares about her readers.

Overall, I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because it was written very well. The title suggests that this book will teach us how to write a nonfiction book, and that is exactly what it does. I only found one mistake, so it is professionally edited. This is a perfect guide for writers or people who want to start writing a book. I highly recommend it.

What we learn about marketing anything, from marketing a nonfiction book

As you can’t fail to have heard I have just published another nonfiction book of my own (as well as some of my clients’ new books!) … and the experience of marketing them has reaffirmed my convictions that most books benefit from being regarded as ‘products’ as well as works of art.

As you you know ‘marketing’ can mean anything from an academic structure within commerce to walking down the street to buy groceries. [Read more…]

Why writing nonfiction books is not just about books any more

.
One of the best things about the current spread of media and publication options is that the basic content from your book can be shared in many more different ways than was the case 20 or even 10 years ago. I have mentioned quite a few of these en passant in my new book but it’s worth taking another look at the main ones, so you can bear them in mind.

Who knows to what other communication treasures your book could lead you?

Blog to book and back again
Depending on the nature of your content, a series of blog posts form a very good basis for a book. I’ve done this a couple of times now and so have a number of other authors who contribute to How To Write Better. You get the double bite at the cherry. Don’t worry that people won’t buy the book if an equivalent but spaced-out version exists on your blog, by the way. They will buy the book because the formats are very different and will be used for different purposes. [Read more…]

Thinking of buying a book on how to write a book?

Here’s what the beta readers said about mine…

If you’re thinking about buying a book to guide you through the journey of devising, planning, writing and publishing a nonfiction book, I would recommend my new one.

Don’t just take my word for it…

“Love the narrative style, so live and speaks to me (I’ve often chosen to not read a book for the very reason of the narrative style not suiting me)… I very quickly get the impression you can actually help me get started. And I don’t have to gloss over terminology I don’t understand, as you’re explaining it. I feel I’m being guided to write ‘like me’ not what I think others want.”
V.L., counsellor and charity managerhow to write a brilliant nonfiction book“As someone with no experience of book authorship, I couldn’t have hoped for a more informative guide to the perils and pitfalls of writing and publishing – essential reading.
If you’re looking for someone to hold your hand through the process of writing a non-fiction book from start to finish, answer all your questions, and even ask you some searching ones, then look no further than this. [Read more…]

Why you won’t need me to help you write your nonfiction book

I’d love to help you write your book but frankly, with all my experience and skills having been poured into this book, you probably won’t need me!
