What Counts as Non-Fiction?
Non-fiction is one of the broadest categories of writing. It includes every kind of writing except fictional stories and poetry. Some of the most popular types of non-fiction books include:
- Art: Art books contain pictures of different art forms, typically with descriptions or explanations of the images.
- Business: Books explaining business topics or instructions on how to become better business people are common.
- Cooking: Cookbooks and recipe collections remain popular, particularly specialty books focused on specific cuisines or diets.
- Guides: How-to guides cover every imaginable subject, from gardening to traveling to electrical engineering.
- Health: These books range from simple explanations of common conditions to in-depth resources for medical experts.
- History: These books may be academic texts recounting historical events or fun, casual explorations of past cultures.
- Humor: Joke books, collections of funny anecdotes, and humorous essays are all popular non-fiction books.
- Memoirs and biographies: Authors recount their lives in these books, usually from a specific point of view. If someone else writes about a person’s life, it’s a biography.
- Relationships: Everyone can benefit from understanding how relationships work. These books focus on specific types of conflict, like parent-child or romantic relationships.
- Self-help: These books give the reader advice on improving problems in their life, from alcoholism to social anxiety.
Writing non-fiction books is a rewarding way to share your knowledge with other people. If you’re an expert on something, you can write a non-fiction book explaining it. Examples of some excellent self-published non-fiction books include:
- Business genre: A Business Roadmap for Professional Photo Organizers, by Cathi Nelson and Jill B. Yesko
- History genre: Victory Day, by Kenneth Scarlett
- Self-help genre: Ballad of my Fearless Heroine, by Vladimir Tsesis

The Benefits of Self-Publishing Non-Fiction
If you’ve written a non-fiction book, the next step is publishing it. For many authors, self-publishing their non-fiction work is the best solution. When you self-publish, you’ll see benefits like:
- Maintaining control over your work
- Avoiding the hassle of finding an agent and a publishing contract
- Retaining a significantly larger percentage of your royalties
- Marketing your book to the exact audience you had in mind when you wrote it
Self-publishing is a fast, effective way to take your book from a file on your computer to a physical object you can sell without giving up your rights to a publisher.
