It’s no question, more acim published equals more buy buttons, fans, repeat readers, and sales!
Will you catch more fish with one fishing rod, or 20 fishing rods?
Silly question, right!
Now, this article is all about how to create non-fiction books quickly that have tremendous value for the reader. And although the title of this article says 48 hours, those 48 hours don’t need to be consecutive!
You can spread them out over a week or two. Of course, if you spread them out over too long, it defeats the purpose of writing quickly. So a balance is good.
And even if you’re not a fast typist in the least, there’s solutions for that too.
Let’s get started…
The Kind of Books You Can Write Quickly
As mentioned, non-fiction can often work well for quick publishing because the structure is easier to plan and the content is easier to create. And if you know the subject well already, that greatly helps speed the process along.
However, if it’s a subject you need to research, or in particular if it’s a subject you’re not familiar with at all and that will take you a while to understand, that may not be suitable for a fast writing project. You may need to consider that more of a long-term background project instead.
That said, interviews with experts can be used to get all the information you need to create a non-fiction book on a topic you’re unfamiliar with. With perhaps both of your names on the cover. Such “joint venture” books are common.
