In future posts, Carol will be blogging about the various ways to publish nonfiction work in a traditional manner. Posts will contain information about writing and publishing textbooks, career/business books, articles, and creative nonfiction. She will also touch on platform building since publishers and agents are hesitant to take on authors who lack a platform. The first few blogs will be devoted to book length nonfiction with an emphasis on approaching traditional publishers.
