4.0 out of 5 stars �How to write and sell your First Nonfiction� July 15 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have had an idea for a book for several months but I couldn't get it off my mind. I didn't know how to go about preparing the manuscript or submitting it to a publisher.
Oscar Collier and Frances Spatz Leighton's 'How to write and sell your First Nonfiction' book made a lot of difference for me, and took the pains to carry the reader step by step through all the phases.
I would never have stepped out into the print world without the common sense guidance I was able to take advantage of from this book. I highly recommend this delightful book - its so positive and encouraging as well as giving you all the tools you need to actually publish your first book! Its fun reading and the absolute best 'how to' book I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading June 23 2009
Format:Paperback
Unfortunately, I discovered this book a few years after I wrote Motorcycle Therapy: A Canadian Adventure in Central America. But, as I could not find any book entitled "How to Write and Sell your SECOND Nonfiction Book," I decided to read it anyway before my next project. I am glad I did, and I only wish I had encountered this book sooner. It takes the reader through every aspect of the writing process and beyond. Highly motivational and educational. If you are currently writing a manuscript, stop what you're doing right now and read this book first.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book tells you how the process works. Dec 13 2006
By Jimmie A. Kepler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
How to Write and Sell Your First Nonfiction Book by Oscar Collier, Frances Spatz Leighton is an excellent how-to book on writing. Note: I have written and published over two dozen magazine and trade journal articles in over a dozen different publications. This gives me insight on how the free-lance business works. Most want to be authors know little to nothing on how to write and sell their first book. This book tells you how the process works. It covers the various types of books. It gives step by step guidance. It shows you how to pitch an idea instead writing a book on speculation. If you are even thinking of being an author, it is worth reading. My advice is to get and read this book.
