with NAIWE’s Blog to Book Expert, Nina Amir
Some say the blog-to-book craze reached its height back in 2009, but more bloggers are landing deals and having their books released per month currently than at that time. 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 represents a successfully test marketed book idea.
Rather than just blogging and then repurposing your posts into a book, or booking your blog, learn how to write, publish, and promote a book on the Internet using blog technology. Blogging a book is the easiest and quickest way to write a book and promote it at the same time. If you can write, you can blog. That means you can blog your way to creating a successful book—one that attracts readers and publishers. You can produce a manuscript, and promote and publish your work one post at a time in cyberspace. If you attract enough readers, you may also get “discovered” by an agent or publisher.
Learn how you can blog your way to a book deal or to create a blog that attracts readers, agents and publishers. This class also will touch on how to book a blog and why a successful blog ensures a successful self-published book.
This session will outline how writers who blog or blog a book:
- publish as they write
- build author platform while they write
- get noticed by agents and acquisition editors
- 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
