I can’t believe it! Copies of How to Blog a Book, the book, are starting to ship! Well, not everywhere as planned, but in some places.
I’ve been checking Amazon.com ever hour since Saturday morning…nothing. No status change. However, How to Blog a Book is now shipping from the Writer’s Digest Shop! (Their system is down today, but you can locate it here: http://www.writersdigestshop.com.) That means books are arriving in the online stores, and my publisher assures me the other stores have received shipments as well. It’s just a matter of how fast they process them.
So, that’s why I’m publishing an extra post this week. (I normally only post on Tuesday and Thursday.) I want to remind you of the great presale and release day offers and events.
It seems you still have today to get in on the presale offers: How to Blog a book, Write, Publish and Promote Your Work One Post at a Time, has more than double the content found here on the blog and two forewords, one by Chris Garrett, coauthor of ProBlogger, and another by Christina Katz, author of Get Known Before the Book Deal. Thus, it will be well worth the purchase even for loyal blog readers.
FREE Coaching Sessions:
I am offering a 15 minute FREE blog-to-book coaching session for all those who preorder before April 24. (Notice the change in date to reflect the fact that the book did not release today anywhere other than at the Writer’s Digest Store.) Just email a copy of your Amazon or B & N receipt to namir(at)copywrightcommunications.com to schedule.
For those who purchase a copy ON May 24 and send me a receipt (at namir(at)copywrightcommunications.com), I am giving away 2 FREE blog-to-book coaching sessions!

And don’t forget about the April Challenge–National Book Blogging Month (NaBoBloMo):
In April the blog is focused on blogging a short book in 30 days. Here’s my challenge: Write a post a day and get at least a 7,500-word manuscript completed in a month. That’s a 250-word post per day (or a longer post 5 days per week). You can win a FREE, signed copy of How to Blog a Book, the book.
Here are the rules: Send in your 7,500-word manuscript with a table of contents, a 50-word pitch, and an overview of the book (synopsis). It must arrive by 12 p.m. 4/30/12 Pacific Time. Email it to me at nina (at) ninaamir (dot) com.
Get in the fun! Buy a book. Get a coaching session. Join the call tonight. Blog a book…
