from-idea-to-ebookWoohoo, friends! Here we go! 10 weeks to write, publish, and sell your own e-book! If you missed my post about this two weeks ago, go ahead and read it now.

The bad news: the course is no longer available for just $10. The good news: it’s still available! (for $17) And you can easily catch up with us! (I promise) That’s less than $2/week (it’s a 10-week course), and you get lifetime access to the content.

And you can take a sneak peek at that content here.

AND you get the bonus of a FREE discussion about each week’s module right here on my blog. And I’ll answer as many questions (in the comments or via e-mail) as I have time for.

Win win win!

If you don’t feel like you’re ready to invest $17 in the course right now, I totally get that. And you’re more than welcome to listen in on (or even join in) our discussion anyway. Just know that I’ll only be sharing snippets of the content to be fair to Mandi (the owner/producer of the course).

Diving right in.

First of all, if you registered for the course, I’d love for you to leave a comment and introduce yourself. You don’t have to share your great e-book idea with us (or admit that you don’t have one). Just tell us your name and why you decided to take the plunge.

For example: Hi, I’m Marla. I’ve written three e-books already, but I have ideas for TONS more. And I can always use LOTS of help marketing my e-books and getting them in the hands of people who would benefit from reading them.

Second, here are some questions to get the discussion rolling. Feel free to answer one or two or all of them (or ask some questions of your own).

1.) Mandi says the 3 biggest obstacles to writing an e-book are 1.) time, 2.) process overwhelm, and 3.) fear. Which one of these resonates with you most, and why?

2.) She also gives lists of pros/cons of traditional publishing (as opposed to self-publishing an e-book). As a traditionally-published-turned-self-published author, I can attest to the truth of her lists. What stood out to you? She also mentions e-books as a door to traditional publishing. What do you think of that?

3.) She mentioned blogging being a good platform for your e-book. Are you blogging? If not, is it something you’d consider doing?

And this is just something I’m curious about.

4.) Do you want to write an e-book more because you have a burning desire to write, or because you have a specific idea you’re dying to share?

And one last thing:

5.) This first module doesn’t give a lot of how-to info (mostly just covers the why of e-books), but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump start on your e-book. What’s something you can do TODAY to get the ball rolling?

(I’m going to do a giant round of edits on my new e-book about Cambodia.)

Okay, I’ll stop talking now and let you take a turn! Answer a question, ask a question, start a discussion, whatever floats your sailboat. So excited you’re taking this plunge, friends!!
