The Need for Nonfiction and Christian Writings|
by African American Writers
Like every aspect of American life, the book business has been affected. The industry is tighter to break into, but is it impossible?
According to nonfiction author, Marc McCutcheon, author of Damn! Why Didn't I write that? How Ordinary People are Raking in $100,000... or more Writing Nonfiction Books and How You Can Too! did you know, of the 50,000-plus books published every year, only about 3,500 are novels including genre titles. The other 46,500 are nonfiction titles.
What does this mean? This means that as an African American novelist or aspiring writer, you can make a regular paycheck from writing nonfiction as well. This means you can receive royalties year after year for books that provide information since we live in an information-driven society. This can also lead to a lucrative career as a speaker, a workshop conductor, or a freelance writer.
Self-publishing is one route to consider, but traditional publishers are always looking for how to guides, self-help tomes, cook books, chronicles, health guides, manuals, histories, travelogues, memoirs as to how people over came adversities, and how to guides for making more money.
These are a few Christian nonfiction and self-help books by African American writers that I have found especially uplifting, informative, encouraging, and insightful.
