James Cross Giblin: On writing series nonfiction

Jim GiblinThere are so many paths to publishing – where does your work fit in? Jim Giblin shares some thoughts about series nonfiction:

“Editors of series nonfiction are always on the lookout for new writers who can do solid research and write their findings in a clear, lively way that communicates to a young audience. Since most of the books are written on assignment, editors want to see queries and writing samples rather than complete manuscripts.

Then, if they like your writing style, they may well ask you to do an outline and sample chapter for a future title in one of their series.”
