Before you hit the SEND button…

I’m thrilled about the opportunities opening up for entrepreneurs to embrace digital publishing and get their message out into the world, but I’ve just written an important warning to aspiring digital content authors. It has been featured at The Future of Ink, and I’m honored to be a guest author there this week. The Future of Ink is an exciting new website dedicated to teaching and promoting best practices for entrepreneurs in the rapidly developing world of digital publishing.

Hop on over and read my post: 10 Essential Steps To Take Before Publishing Your Digital Content. While you’re there, please leave a comment! I’d especially love to hear your own ideas for things to add to my checklist.

Thank you to Ellen Britt and Denise Wakeman for having me as a guest, and to those who’ve already left comments.

Learn how to publish an ebook to Kindle in 48 hours!

Boost your visibility and add an income stream

There’s nothing like having an ebook on Amazon’s Kindle program to establish your expertise and create an additional income stream (small, perhaps, but it adds up). I just listened to an amazing webinar on how to do this and I want to share it with you.

If you have a blog, or if you’ve written articles or columns in the past, you already have lots of great content. Now how do you get it in front of a huge audience that will actually pay for it? is the biggest ecommerce site on the Web with millions of customers EVERY DAY. Why not get your best content in front of a slew of new eyeballs who are looking for the solutions you provide? Adapting your blog posts into a Kindle ebook is a fast and easy way to leverage your expertise and get paid for it!

Positioning yourself as an author is one of the best ways to build credibility and visibility on the Web. Turning blog content into a Kindle ebook may seem daunting and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be.

Learn from Blogging/Social Media Guru Denise Wakeman

My colleague Denise Wakeman, has presented a one-time, live 90-minute training webinar called “From Blog to eBook: How to Create New Revenue Streams with Amazon’s Kindle Ebook Program.” I have been a long-time affiliate of Denise’s products because she always delivers practical, useful, and easy-to-understand information at a great price. Since the webinar is recorded, you can listen to it at your convenience, and you’ll get access to bonus links and downloads.

Registration Details Here:


What you’ll learn:

  • The difference between repurposing and syndication
  • Why you should repurpose your blog content
  • A simple 13 step process to create an ebook from your blog
  • How to build your list with a Kindle ebook
  • 3 ways to promote your ebook on Amazon, the largest ecommerce site on the Web

Plus much more…

This is NOT a preview webinar with a pitch for a big ticket product at the end. This is a training webinar. Denise is frequently asked to share this information. This is info she usually only shares privately with her clients and now you can benefit too.

The webinar was recorded on July 18, 2012. When you purchase,  you will get the video and audio replays plus a transcript and a pdf of the slides.

Get webinar details HERE.

Whether you’re ready now or plan later to publish an ebook from your exisiting content, this webinar will give you the steps for getting started so you can see how simple it can be, stop procrastinating, stop waiting for perfection, and take immediate action! 🙂

Register here today.

Don’t worry that the webinar live date is past. You’ll still get everything the live attendees got.

If you still need help after listening to this webinar, call me at 540-436-3969. I’ve helped several authors self-publish their books, and I’d love to help you too.
