Publishing nonfiction books is different than fiction publishing. You pitch differently, you prepare differently, you write differently, and you get paid differently. This tutorial describes how to pitch your nonfiction book idea, how to complete the book proposal, and how to write your table of contents (TOC). The tutorial also covers authorship, co-authorship, contributing authorship, agents, and publishers.

Presented in a chronological style from idea to publication and beyond, this tutorial explains the processes and procedures involved in getting your nonfiction book onto shelves.

Kenneth "Ken" Hess presents this tutorial from his experience as a technology author, columnist, and blogger. Ken has written hundreds of articles for online and print publications. He is also author of SQL Power! (Thomson) and Access 2007 (Wiley). He is co-author of Practical Virtualization Solutions (Pearson), and contributing author and technical editor for several other books.
