Kylie Ofiu eBook Giveaway: Blog to Book

From Blog to Book by Kylie OfiuThe eBook and book giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Barbara and Sofia…

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.

If you would like to learn more about what Kylie offers in her eBook, then check out her post at Blog to Book – eBook.

The eBook AND Book Giveaway

If you have read this far you obviously know this is an eBook giveaway for Kylie Ofiu’s new eBook, Blog to Book. I’m giving away two free copies of Kylie’s eBook which regularly retails for $14.95 ($9.95 until August 1st 2012).

But I’ve also decided to ante-up the prize! I’m also giving away Kylie’s 365 Ways to Make Money, which will be hand signed by Kylie and shipped directly from Australia at my expense ($17 CAD retail value) to the two eBook winners. What’s the catch? Absolutely nothing – you don’t have to subscribe to anything, buy anything, or have 15 tweets or facebook likes to win. But you do have to leave a comment below if you want to win a copy of Kylie’s new eBook, Blog to Book as well as a signed copy of her published book 365 Ways To Make Money.

There will only be 2 prize winners, and the draw ends on Tuesday July 31st!  I will randomly draw the two winners from the comments below. So if you’re interested in winning, then leave a comment. 😉

The eBook and book giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Barbara and Sofia…

    This is a great giveaway! I miss the days when all you had to do was leave a comment, tweeting, FBing and liking stuff gets so complicated. Looking forward to see who wins ( I hope I am randomly chosen:)

      Sofia, I agree! That’s why I left all the twitter and facebook out of it – and a comment only draw. All the best. 😉

    I would love to with the 365 book – you could even keep the e-book or give it out to someone else, as I don’t blog and therefore it wouldn’t be all that relevant to me.

    take care
