Is it hard to publish a nonfiction book?
Getting any book published today is a difficult task. I used to think that if you wrote a good book, the offers would come flooding in. The truth is that it is all about the numbers. Before any publisher will take on a book, they must be convinced that sales of the book will exceed their expenses. Take a book like Forrest Gump by Winston Groom. I don’t think that book sold more than 5,000 copies before the film. If the marketing department can’t guarantee sales of at 50,000, the book has little chance of being published by a traditional publisher. There aren’t a lot of first-time authors who can generate those kinds of numbers. That’s why you see book deals going to people who have large social media numbers or individuals involved in the public eye.
Which author(s) do you admire?
Michael Lewis, Mark Bowden, Hampton Sides, Nathaniel Philbrick
What do you like the most about being an author?
There is nothing cooler than being the first person to tell a story that no one has ever heard before.
What kind of advice would you give other non-fiction authors?
Pick a subject that interests you. Writing a book is a long process. If you get bored, the reader will get bored also.
