I'm working on a true crime book proposal and would like to back up my target audience section with statistics as to how much of the reading public buys true crime NF, but I can't seem to find any sources online with that information. Does anyone have suggestions? Thank you~
seeking stats on true crime non-fiction readership

I'm not sure you'll find such information, other than googling "crime non-fiction buying statistics". Publishers don't really release statistics like that to the public that I know of. However, an agent will have a good idea of the market if they represent it, so I don't think a statistic like this would be 100% necessary. You might want to mention the public's new fascination with the radio show SERIAL for example, or cite some specific books that are similar to yours that you know have done well because of bestseller status instead.
