Investigative journalists often want to turn the individual articles of an investigation into a comprehensive book. It is a way of telling the whole story and repurposing the research material. But how does one go about it? How do you rewrite your material to make it into one long, compelling story? Which demands do publishers have, and how do they select between the offers of non-fiction books? French investigative reporter Leila Miñano has published two investigative books; Kim Hundevadt, a former journalist, is managing editor for non-fiction at the Danish JP-Politiken publishing house that publishes numerous journalistic books every year.
