Have you been wondering what up with me and my manuscript or how I’m doing getting How to Blog a Book discovered? Well, here’s the deal.
I have to admit that once I was done blogging the book, I did not keep up with posting or promoting–at least for a while. I figured I had blogged my book and I was done–despite what I have told you about continuing to blog and promote.
I then began blogging again, publishing posts (as you can see) about blogs that have been picked up and turned into books, tips on blogging and blogging a book as well as on blogging to promote books or repurposing blogs into books. I’ve also tried to keep up with what’s happening in the publishing world when it comes to blogging a book.
In the meantime, I also wrote a book proposal for How to Blog a Book and gave it to my agent. I also wrote a query letter. This went out to two publishers initially. It received two rejections. It then went out to a third, which requested a proposal and is now reviewing that proposal.
While traditional publishing represents Plan A, self-publishing constitutes Plan B. Since either way I need to edit the whole manuscript, I am continuing to do so as I wait. I edited two chapters for the proposals, and I am now working through the remaining chapters.
As I do, you may see some new posts here on subjects that I found missing. You may also find related posts or even some videos or audio.
And that’s what’s up with How to Blog a Book.
