If you can write, you can blog. That means you can blog your way to a book deal. You can blog a book, and write and publish your work one post at a time in cyberspace while also promoting it so you get “discovered.”
Agents and acquisition editors continue to troll the Internet looking for blogs to turn into books because they want to find books as close to a “sure thing” as possible. A blog with an established readership and a blogger with a built-in fan base or platform is about as close as they can find. That’s why so many blogs are still receiving book contracts. Just as many bloggers are landing deals and having their books released per month currently as at the height of the blog-to-book craze in 2009.
So, why not join me on for a FREE teleseminar on Tuesday, October 25th at Noon Pacific Time (3 PM Eastern) to learn how you can blog your way to a book deal by blogging a book (or simply writing a blog) that attracts readers, agents and publishers. That’s right…stop reading this blog for a day and actually listen to me speak (a novel idea). You can ask questions, too.
Blogging a book (or blogging) provides one of the fastest and easiest ways to write a book and get noticed by agents and publishers today. Writers who blog or blog a book:
- publish as they write
- build author platform while they write
- get noticed by agents and acquisition editors
It’s a known fact that successful blogs get attention. Blogs like The Julie/Julia Project, Stuff White People Like and Rules for My Unborn Son and the more recent hits like 1001 Awesome Things, The Puppy Diaries, Hack (Tales from a Chicago Cab), and My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress have all ended up in print because, indeed, they were popular. The word got out, and an agent or acquisition editor couldn’t help but hear about them or come across them.
You can write a successful blog, too. And it doesn’t have to include silly photos of you doing odd things with your ex-wife’s wedding dress or posts about you cooking a famous chef’s recipes. You can blog about a unique topic all your own and turn out quality content. In fact that’s what this teleseminar is all about. It’s about producing blog content that’s worthy of a book–or actually writing your manuscript one post at a time using blog technology.
Here’s what you’re going to learn if you join me on the call:
- Why all aspiring authors should blog
- what to blog about
- 10 reasons to blog a book
- The pros and cons of blogging vs. blogging a book
- 6 things you need to do before you blog a book
- 3 things you need for your blog to get discovered
- The elements a blog needs if it is to become a book
- How to know if your book has a market or competition
