    Clear, concise, helpful! I've interviewed Nancy for WOW! Women on Writing, but this is the first book of hers that I've read. It's an amazing, straightforward guide. I'm going to use it when I write a non-fiction book idea I've been kicking around for 3 years. Clear, concise, helpful! I've interviewed Nancy for WOW!

And even though this book is geared towards current or aspiring writers, some of the tips presented can be implemented for general writing tasks. For example, when writing this review, I followed the author's guidelines by forming an outline, engaging in uninterrupted writing without indulging in constant editing tendencies, and then polishing towards the very end. I like how the author provided several recommendations in so many different areas: tools for compiling notes, how to seek low-cost cover designers, formatting options such as using your own purchased software or hiring someone to do so, importance of placing your book in a less competitive category, how to find book reviewers, etc. And if she was not an expert in some area, she would be honest and advise us to perform additional research. My favourite part was learning about how to maximize sales and publicity via Amazon’s KDP Select Program as I had no idea that this great service existed The only suggestion I have is that the author could have improved in the area of formatting. I feel that the various sub-headings should have been better distinguished from the rest of her text (e.g. through bolded font, different colour, style, or font altogether). Solely capitalizing the sub-headings was not sufficient. In addition, there should have been more spacing between the sub-heading and the rest of the text that followed. Because the sub-headings were not overly distinguishable from other text and there wasn't adequate spacing in between, this made the information too crowded together and hence somewhat messy and unappealing to the eye. Moreover, the Table of Contents also seemed too tightly packed and there should have been more spacing between the topics. If formatting revisions are made in the next edition, this book can surely be a bestseller in its category!

    Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/reviews/... How to Write for Kindle: a Non-Fiction Book in 72 Hours or Less offers a lot of pratical advice, not so much about writing in general, but more about writing short books for the Kindle market.

I’ve been wanting to write a few non-fiction quicklets for a while, so when I saw this book free for download, it was a definite blessing in disguise. The book starts by telling you how to outline (which is basically like the road map for your book), how to work on the research phase (if necessary), how much time you should spent to writing and editing. It doesn’t go into too much detail about letting someone else edit your book, about book covers or formatting. It touches on the subjects briefly though. The author obviously has a great approach, and something that definitely worked for her. The true test to see if it would work for me though, would probably be to try it out. I plan on doing so in February, once my schedule cleans up. While the book definitely has some useful advice, it isn’t complete, and doesn’t go through it step by step. It’s a quick guide, just what I expected, but I would’ve liked to read more about what markets the target, and how to successfully write for the Kindle audience. Writing a book is one thing, publishing it successfully, and actually getting noteworthy sales, is quite the other. I saw the price today, and for that price, I’d want more than a 70 page book. Just saying.

    Although I've written several books for Kindle already, I'm always interested in learning new tips and tricks for creating better books.

Nancy's book offers lots of excellent, practical advice for non-fiction writers looking to amp up their production schedule - in addition to writing stronger books that will keep readers coming back for more. Nancy's book is a quick read, because it's eliminated the fluff and cut straight to the chase. She includes step-by-step information on the tools of the trade that she employs (updated for 2014, as noted on the cover, so it's not outdated like some other how-to manuals), as well as breakdowns on how much time you should devote to each phase of your writing process. It was really interesting to see how a fellow pro breaks down her work and approaches her writing goals. Even if you don't believe that you can write a book in just 72 hours, she's got the stats to show you exactly how this is possible. Better still, she'll show you what to do to reach the goal, even if you're a slow writer or researcher. Perfect! All in all, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to write non-fiction books, improve their writing, or make a living writing books for Kindle.

    I read a newer version of this book, How to Write & Sell Non-Fiction Books for Kindle: 5-Step Blueprint to Quickly Write & Publish Your Book in 72 Hours or Less. It was not quite what I was looking for as it focuses more on a research-based book (or a book based on interviews, etc. and not your own expertise). Also, I can't help but think 72 hours is way too short for writing a book unless you are a full-time freelance writer, but I digress.

The book is broken up into a section outlining Nancy's 5 step plan and a section on publishing your book to Kindle with some ideas for marketing your book and organizing its launch. I think the guide would be most helpful to someone who has a writing background in journalism or blogging and who needs a push to get organized to self-publish their first book as an Amazon Kindle ebook.

    I received a free digital copy from storycartel.com in exchange for a review. This book is geared for nonfiction writers. Even though I am mainly a fiction writer, I got some value from this book. The resources about research, distraction-free tools, and formatting help were useful, but the strategy on fast-quality writing was too basic. The book did not focus on grammar, but I appreciated the grammar rule about participle phrases. I loved the suggestions on how to obtain book reviews.

    I received a free copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review. While there are a few interesting tips in this book on writing non-fiction books for Kindles, there's really not a lot of things we haven't seen in a dozen other books. To separate a 72-hour book from a "quick and dirty" one is patently ludicrous. There's no difference, and there's not nearly enough emphasis on putting out a quality, non-plagiarized product. The author does at least stress a need for research, I received a free copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a very informative book--perfect for anyone who wants to make writing for Kindle their job! Nancy did a great job presenting her point in a way that was fun and easy to read. In my opinion, this is a great book for all writers--not just for those who want to write Non-Fiction. I think we can all learn something from this. Good job, Nancy! I'll definitely be recommending this to my friends who want to do Kindle publishing. I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

    I was leery of a book with “A Non-Fiction Book in 72-Hours or Less” in its title; however, with 71 reviews and a five star rating, it had to be a good book. Right? I love the highlighting feature on my kindle. I can judge the usefulness of a book to me personally by the amount of highlighting I did. This book wasn’t very useful to me. It does provide basic information that may be useful to beginning writers who want to publish for the Kindle.

    Practical Advice for the Non-fiction writer The writing and publishing techniques offered in this book are extensive and helpful. Hendrickson has demonstrated the how-to by offering the read insights into her own writing experience. I particularly enjoyed the section about self-publishing. 'How to Write' is well laid out, well researched and provides value for the pre-published writer.

    This is a quick and easy read that seems to target precisely what a writer needs to know to publish a quality eBook as efficiently as possible. I like that the author provides an abundance of resource choices - such as links to cover design software and research sources. This book left me feeling empowered with a plan and knowledge I did have before. Well worth the modest price!
