Last October when I had the opportunity to attend FinCon11 in Chicago, the first annual Financial Bloggers Conference, I met so many great bloggers I’ve still kept in contact with. One of those bloggers is Kylie Ofiu from Australia, and we’ve made a point to keep in touch.
Last December I did a book review and book giveaway for Kylie’s new book 365 Ways to Make Money. Even though the Dividend Ninja is really an investment blog, this turned out to be a popular post.
Blog to Book
When I attended FinCon11 Kylie presented a seminar on From Blog to Book, an in-depth review of how she made it from blogging to print media, the steps involved to work with a print publisher, and how she finally published her own book. She had plans to put this topic together as an eBook. Kylie recently let me know that she has just published her new eBook, Blog to Book – eBook. She asked me if I could help get the word out, and of course I said yes.
This eBook is designed for bloggers who are already thinking about taking the next step to print media, or writing their own book. It’s a step-by-step guide to help the aspiring author go beyond blogging. Kylie writes in her recent blog post:
“Have you ever wanted to go from blog to book and become a published author? I did it and many more bloggers are doing it now too. Bloggers have a great platform through which to promote a book and publishers love that. If you are a blogger and want to take things to the next level and become an author, then this is the eBook you need!”
This eBook is packed with detailed info. In this eBook Kylie tells you how to get started and setup your blog so you’re ready to launch your book. She tells you how to start your book, pitch your book to potential publishers, and how to handle the book contract. Kylie also discusses the basics of royalties and advances, the various people you need to deal with at the publishing level. Kylie also dives into the basics of marketing your book both with online and traditional media. Kylie also discusses self-publishing vs. Mainstream publishing.
