Nearly every blogger I know has the goal of getting published. Unfortunately, few ever reach that goal. Some struggle with the high perceived investment of time and/or money. Others feel like they may not be able to overcome certain technical aspects of publishing. Regardless of the obstacle, if you’re one of those bloggers who dream of getting published, then I’m here to share a shocking truth with you.
It may not be the easiest thing you’ve ever done. And it is a lot of work. Our dreams and goals rarely ever just happen to us. But if you’ve been blogging for a while (six months or more), then the truth is…
Let me tell you a little story that might encourage you. I had been blogging for a few years when it happened for me. And I was struggling with the idea that I wasn’t even close to getting published when someone gave me some encouragement. Then an author friend challenged me to consider the work I’ve already done. At the time I had about 600 posts on my blog. And at an average of about 500 words each, I had over 300,000 words of content already published!
Considering that an average 200-page book is about 60,000 words, I quickly realized that I had written enough content to fill FIVE full-length books!
So I had already done the work, I just needed to figure out how to convert some of that existing blog content into a book that I could market and sell.
To make a long story short, within a few months I self-published my first book. But that’s not even the most exciting part of the story! While I was in the launch process of that first book, a small, start-up publisher read the book, and offered me a contract to write another book with them. Then, within a few months after that deal I was signing yet another book contract, but this time with one of the major publishers in my niche!
This could be your story too!
How can I say something like that? Well, the truth is that I’m nobody special. Which means that if I can do it, then so can you. I’m so certain about this, that I’m going to help you make that happen! I know for a fact there are far better writers out there than me. But for whatever reason they feel like the obstacles preventing them from getting published are just too big. So I’m here to tear down those obstacles, and help you achieve your dreams.
The first step in this process is to stop listening to the lies that you can’t do it on your own. Do you know who says more than anyone else that you’ll never get published without a literary agent? You guessed it, literary agents!
The publishing industry is getting flipped upside down these days, thanks to a little device called the e-reader. That means anything is possible!
My goal is to help you learn how you can leverage the latest technology and trends in the publishing industry to take the steering wheel for reaching your publishing goals into your own hands!
I’m developing a course as we speak that will help you learn everything you need to know about how to take the work you’ve done on your blog and turn it into a published book that you can market and sell. My plan is to deliver three key resources to help you out at whatever level you need:
1. FREE webinars where I’ll teach you more about the process of getting published
2. A full training program that will walk you step-by-step through the process and give you deeper how-to instruction an every task involved
3. Personal coaching from me to answer questions and offer advice to help you be as successful as you can be
Dude… seriously… let’s rock this thing! Let’s get you to where you want to be in your writing career!
