Non-fiction book writing guide

This guide, created for non-narrative non-fiction and academic writers, consists of four parts:

  1. How to write a non-fiction book proposal?
  2. How to structure a non-fiction book?
  3. How to carry out a developmental edit of a non-fiction book?
  4. How to self-edit a non-fiction book?

Although the guide was created for the Non-fiction November and the Academic Writing Month (which also happens in November), I hope writers will find it helpful regardless of the time of year and stage of the book writing journey.
