Remember…you started with a plan – to build your book with your blog or to build your blog with your book, however you want to look at it. Either way, you have a plan for your book, your blog posts, your social media posts, and your marketing. So how do you put it all together…by starting! The hardest part is taking the first step. You made it through reading this little ebook so I think you are ready to begin…do you agree?
Create your space – physically, emotionally, psychologically, and socially.
Build your outline – your 10 chapters, your 10 points per chapter, or whatever numbers you’ve decided on.
Start writing – get your new paper or journal out and start using that new pen that you love. (Personally, I love the ultra-fine ball-point pens)
Set up your social media pages.
Create a post with a quote from your blog and link it back to your website…if you don’t have a website yet, get one made ASAP.
Once you finish 10 posts on the same topic, turn them into an ebook (like this one). Give it away on your site to begin connecting with those who want to hear what you have to say.
Do this 10 times = 10 ebooks = 1 book.
Put those 10 ebooks into 1 book (tweak and add a bit more if you like depending on how much content you’ve shared in each post – for example, these posts will require more to create a book).
Sell your 1st full ebook for a reasonable price to serve as many people as possible. I know authors who have sold their ebooks for $.99, just to get it into as many hands as possible. It is better to sell 100 books for $.99 than 2 books for $10.
