Why We Wrote the Book

We have been in a business mastermind group together for many years, and have been friends since 2004. Back then, Stephanie owned a bookstore and Karl owned an IT company and we were both diving into the world of publishing head first.

Because we are both publishers of nonfiction books exclusively, and having published our own work as well as books by others, we have a tremendous amount of experience and have learned many lessons along the way. Anyone can publish a book or two and write a guide on how to do the same, but we’ve each published dozens of books. We’ve made all the mistakes so that you can avoid them!

We crammed The Nonfiction Book Publishing Plan with tons of real-world examples, interviews by fellow authors, and included links to over 200 resources. The book ended up being longer than we expected, at just under 75,000 words. That’s a hefty tome!

Our goal is to help you navigate the overwhelming world of publishing and publish your book in the most professional way possible. There are also lots of ways to build revenue from and around your book, and we’ve outlined a plan to help you turn your dream into profits!

Feedback from Beta Readers

Feedback from beta readers“Just finished this book. It took me much longer to read than usual because I kept stopping to implement the amazing suggestions the authors made. If you are planning to publish in the next 12 months, or if you have already published your book—as I have—get this book!!! It will save you time, money, and frustration!!! Thank you for sharing your in-depth and timely expertise!” – Susan J. Mecca, author of The Gift of Crisis: Finding your best self in the worst of times,

The Nonfiction Book Publishing Plan is the epitome of the one-stop book for anyone looking to self-publish. The details shared are fantastic. The authors have not left anything out. You will want to keep this title handy and reference often during your publishing journey.” – Dawn Whitmore, The ‘Old Barn’ Lady,

“Stephanie Chandler and Karl W. Palachuk have done a superb job in organizing and writing this wonderful book! There is so much valuable information on writing the manuscript, publishing, promoting, marketing, choosing the target readership, distribution, etc. My favorite part was learning about the Library of Congress. After 14 books published, I learned about Library of Congress Control Numbers, and that I should use them for my books! As if all the aforementioned information was not enough, expert opinions and pro tips from other authors are incorporated in almost in every chapter. I highly recommend this book! Congratulations to the authors for a superb job!” – Matina Psyhogeos, author of English Words Deriving from The Greek Language,
