[Is fiction more your thing? In a few weeks I’ll post about Your Novel Blueprint. Stay tuned!]
So, you want to write a nonfiction book
Maybe you’ve experienced something profound, solved a major problem, or gained insight that could change someone’s life, just like it changed yours.
But you might be afraid that . . .
- your writing won’t be good enough,
- no one will care what you have to say,
- your book will be rejected, or
- someone will say, “I expected more of you.”
Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a prolific author walk you through every step of the repeatable system he’s used to write more than five dozen nonfiction books (including multiple New York Times bestsellers), so you can finally write the best book you can imagine, one you’d be thrilled to share with the world?
Jerry Jenkins’ Most Comprehensive Nonfiction-Writing Course Ever
Jerry Jenkins is the author of over 200 books, including 21 NYT bestsellers. You may know him for his most popular novel series, Left Behind, but you may not know that he cut his teeth writing nonfiction. Many of his NYT bestsellers have been as-told-to biographies
Whether you’re starting from scratch or have tried before, Jerry’s goal in the Nonfiction Blueprint course is to give you the best chance to succeed with your manuscript. Let him share with you the proven system he’s used over and over to write books people want to read.
How Does It Work?
The program consists of over 70 video lessons that walk you through every step of writing your nonfiction book, mentoring you through the entire process.
You’ll start with an idea, then create a structure and outline.
You’ll cover crafting an opener that grabs the reader by the throat, maintaining tension that keeps readers with you through “the Marathon of the Middle” and leads to a compelling ending.
Nonfiction Blueprint removes the fear and guesswork that may have demoralized you in the past. Simply log into the website and start with a brief training video that walks you through your next step — so you’ll always know what to do next.
Best of all? You advance at your own pace, fitting the curriculum to your specific writing schedule — which Jerry will also help you design, based on your calendar and lifestyle.
Here’s what people are saying about Jerry’s sister course, Your Novel Blueprint, which launched a few years ago (and will open again soon):
“I’ve published more than 75 books in the last 20 years and this is the best hands-on writing instruction I’ve ever seen. Whether you’re new or have written for years, it will help.”
– Chris Fabry
“I’ve recently had offers of representation from 2 agents, due in large part to the excellent tutoring of Jerry Jenkins. I didn’t know what self-editing really meant until joining Your Novel Blueprint and Jerry’s Guild.”
— Ted Bull
“It feels like the book is just writing itself!”
— Karen Saari
“The assignments were incredibly useful. As a trying-to-reform non-outliner, I rolled my eyes at first, but once I got down to doing the work, it sparked so much information I needed! I am working on the second novel in a series, so I thought I had all the information I needed, but the characters have changed since the last time I did anything like this. New issues, new challenges, new desires. And plot points kept falling out of my pen as I wrote!”
— Julie Duffy
After launching this course, Jerry soon discovered that nonfiction writers wanted a nonfiction version, so he obliged.
