Do you have an idea for a non-fiction book but aren’t sure if you have the time to write it? Now you can, using the 5-step WRITE-FAST STRATEGY.

The Kindle platform has turned the publishing world upside down, giving authors like you the opportunity to share your wealth of knowledge with the entire world. The Kindle has made it easy to publish your own work without going through a traditional publishing company and being saddled with a contract that favors the company over the author. By self-publishing, you keep the majority of the sales money – not the other way around. Plus, you get the pleasure and pride of being a published author!

Are You Worried You Can’t Write Fast Enough?

Using the WRITE-FAST STRATEGY, which takes you from outline, through research, writing and beyond, you really can write a quality Kindle book in a short period of time. That’s because TIME isn’t the culprit – the problem is lack of a strategy. This book will solve that!

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.
