It seems to me that most people who have never written a book think that it takes at least a year to write one. It may be true that the traditional publishing process takes that long to get a book on the shelves of Barnes & Noble. But the actual writing process doesn’t take so long. Now with Amazon Kindle publishing, you can publish a book within minutes of completing the writing and editing.
In How to Write a Nonfiction eBook in 21 Days, Steve Scott describes a system for going from idea to market in 21 days. This is the method he used to write 30+ books.
For me, the most helpful part of the book is how it’s broken down into distinct steps with a specific number of hours to spend on each step. This is useful for coming up with a work schedule so I know if I am working too fast or slow. How to Write a Nonfiction eBook in 21 Days is one of the most useful books I’ve read all year. If you are an aspiring author, you need to read this book today.
