While the self-publishing craze reaches and all-time high and ebook readership reaches critical mass, more resources are needed for the writing community. To meet this need, The Nonfiction Authors Association recently launched with a mission of helping authors of business, self-help, memoir, and other nonfiction books navigate the world of publishing and marketing books.

The Nonfiction Authors Association is an online community where members have access to free online profiles, educational resources, and monthly teleseminars with industry experts. Basic membership is free, and “Authority” membership is $19 per month, providing access to a private member forum, recordings from the teleseminar events, and discounts to the annual Nonfiction Writers Conference, a 3-day online event.

Launched by author Stephanie Chandler, the Nonfiction Authors Association is the first organization of its kind to tailor to the needs of nonfiction authors. “Writing and promoting nonfiction books is very different from what’s involved in working with fiction or children’s books,” said Chandler. “There are many writers’ groups and associations out there that primarily serve the fiction market. I really wanted to bring nonfiction authors together, built a supportive community, and address their specific needs and challenges.”

According to Chandler, nonfiction authors tend to be people who have something to teach readers. They are often business professionals or people who have learned from various life challenges. Once their books are released, authors are faced with the difficult task of promoting them and getting their messages out to an audience. The Nonfiction Authors Association provides resources and information to help authors navigate these challenges, and make a difference in the world through the power of books.
