  Trade Publishing (general-interest fiction and non-fiction for adults, children, young adults and religion) experienced significant growth since 2011

Good news for nonfiction writers and publishers according to the Association of American Publishers growth in the nonfiction publishing area has grown since 2011.

“The increases were fueled by a year of strong new releases, particularly in the romance genre, and even more widespread popularity of eBooks than in past years. This growth occurred despite the loss of numerous brick-and-mortar stores in 2012 and a lower cost for eBooks than print books, which translated to higher quantities of eBooks sold.”
