I had people comment, write emails, a few in-person inquiries, and send text messages (you all know who you are) requesting that I compile last week’s posts in an ebook. While I argued it was already available for free on my blog, there seemed to be a consensus that an aggregated collection was an attractive option. It was even suggested that $.99 was a small price to pay for the work, especially if there was some bonus content.
While I couldn’t come up with a whole lot in the way of bonus content (thanks for the ideas Gabe), one thought was staring me in the face: the final, unwritten post.
So I’ve decided to hold off my last post on promotion and social media for the $.99 ebook.
Cruel, I know. But I suppose you all have yourselves to thank for it. Or at least some of yourselves. Perhaps your grand idea jumped up and bit you in the buttocks; I was quite content to leave it alone. But you have to admit, it is a good idea. (Thanks y’all).
Needless to say I’m trying to turn this small document around in record time. All my faithful readers will be the first to know when How To Self Publish Your Book: A Real Life Guide On How A Real Life Guy Self Published His Novels live. Thanks for the inspiration; you’re a true example of social media pressure changing the course of history. Or at least my mind.
For now, you socially-persuasive minions (and I mean that in the most affectionate of ways: think Despicable Me) can help me decide upon a byline. The cover above? Or the one below? ch:
