Non-fiction writers

Are you writing a non-fiction book, already have or thinking about it? 

If so, do you include a preface, introduction or both? How long are these pieces in comparison to the main body?

  • Check books with similar subjects for how long a preface or introduction should be. While I’m half-assedly working on a non-fiction book, its introduction is something I’m trying to limit to a page and a half tops. If you have an extended introduction, it needs to be a first chapter. As the names “introduction” and “preface” imply, you’re just setting up the work that follows.

    • Thanks for the info, I’m finding mine currently is a part preface, part intro and a little bit of first chapter. This part is trickier than I thought!
