“NFAA has served me on my whole writing journey with the entire gambit of resources and support: help with craft, selecting a title, deciding how to publish, publicity, sales, marketing, networking, and so on. I’ll stay with them for life!”

“I just wanted to tell you how much I value all that you are doing with NFAA. It is one of the best investments in a membership I have ever made. Being a first-time author was daunting enough. I didn’t realize how much time and effort it takes to promote a self-published book. NFAA has given me the tools for structuring that process. I would recommend NFAA to both the novice and seasoned author.

I consider it a privilege to be a member of the Nonfiction Authors Association. The resources that are available to new and established authors are outstanding. The Nonfiction Writers Conference is always jam packed with great sessions and this year I was invited by one of the panel agents to submit a book proposal during Pitch the Literary Agents! As an up and coming author I find great value in the monthly events as well. I would encourage anyone who desires to become an established nonfiction author to join the Nonfiction Authors Association–you will be glad you did!
