As you may know, I haven’t been terribly good at promoting my own wares or tooting my horn or whathaveyou. I just don’t want to come across as all ego driven or somesuchthing. It’s only taken me five years of blogging and meeting smart and savvy women writers/creators online to learn it’s not BAD to share what you do with the world. It’s actually quite good! So, here I am, telling you that I made my favorite Just Write posts from this past year (YES! It’s been over a year!) into an ebook.
When I was in Chicago at BBC, I had the pleasure of meeting Samantha from Blurb, and listening to her speak. I got (overly) excited hearing about all the ways a person can utilize Blurb, and when I got home, I got right to working on this book and another Instagram one:
This #JustWrite ebook is currently available for $9.99 and looking at it on my ipad basically kind of astounds me. I mean, if you blog or write anything anywhere, basically, what you have stored up is a book. And it’s as easy as taking the step to open Blurb, moving your words from there to there, creating, a second time. Choosing photos. Your favorites, both words and photos. It’s so affirming and fun and you can sell them but you don’t have to; maybe you want your words just for you and that’s just fine, too.
I’m working on making this same book into a coffee table/bedside table/gift book with a hardcover and dust jacket as well. I’m planning to sell them, and maybe you’ll consider getting one for someone for the holidays. Like yourself or someone you love. But no pressure, truly. I loved making this book no matter what comes of it, and I’m not just saying that.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, friends!
I’m going to thank you extra much on CYBER MONDAY alongside Blurb…so don’t miss it. I mean, really. REALLY. DON’T MISS IT. You’re going to get some really great deals ’round these parts.
I made a book! (You can get the ebook if you’d like, from Blurb. Maybe you’ll read it and decide that’s all you need, which is totally fine (can’t stop people-pleasing) or maybe you might kind of want the gift books after you have it, to give or keep maybe.) (I’m going away now.) (Except to say that I hope to be taking orders for the hardcover books within the next week or so.)
Edited to add: The ebook is only available on apple iOS devices, BUT, I’m working on a PDF format that can be added to anything else. SOON!
I disclaim: I made my ebook for freeness as a part of a working with Blurb to bring you good things. But really, friends…it’s only 9.99 to make the ebook!
