So I am working on my first fiction book. I somehow stumbled across this book: Layer Your Novel on Amazon. I’m really impressed by it so far. At the end of each chapter, there are activities to help you use what you learned in that chapter. You can purchase your copy by clicking on my affiliate link at the end of this post.
Today’s WordPress Wednesday post is actually a book review. I recently finished reading a Kindle book about free WordPress plugins. This book lists 27 useful WordPress plugins. This book is a must read for anyone that wants to get the most out of a WordPress installation. Both newbies and experienced bloggers will learn something from this book. I give this book 5 stars.

So you’ve finally finished your book. You’ve devoured countless cups of coffee. You’ve edited and re-edited. You’ve sent your book to beta readers and editors. You’ve uploaded your book to Amazon. It’s done. You’re baby is out there in the big, bad world. Now you can sit back, relax and catch up on all of the TV you missed while you were diligently working on your book, right? Not so fast. Now that you’ve published your book, you have to promote it. Did you think it was going to sell just by virtue of the fact that it was on Amazon? Did you think people were going to be lined up to promote your book for you as part of Amazon’s affiliate program? Nope. Writing the book is just the first step. You need to promote your book so that it gets in the hands of the people that need to hear it. I was given a copy of How To Promote Your Book With A Blog Tour by Body And Soul Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This has no bearing on my opinion of this book. Read the rest of the post for my opinion of this book.
I just got finished reading another one of the books in Kristen Eckstein’s Author’s Quick Guide Series. This one was about how to deal with Perfectionism and Procrastination when you are trying to get a book completed. As usual, Kristen delivers a lot of value in a short amount of time. She gets right to some of the reasons why people procrastinate and gives you tips on how not to be a perfectionist. The one thing that struck a chord with me the most was the affirmation that she shared with us, “I AM kind of a big deal!” I LOVE that affirmation. Rest assured, that will be the first thing I post on my FB wall from now on. This book gets 5 stars from me. It is a must read if you are trying to shake procrastination to accomplish a goal. As of this writing, the Kindle book is only $0.99 to purchase. You can purchase it through my affiliate link below.
Calling all speakers! If you have been dying to write that book already, pay attention to this post. You probably already have several books “written” and you didn’t even know it. What am I talking about you ask? Your speeches! Did you know that you could turn your speeches into books? You can. Kristen Eckstein shows you how to do that in her kindle book, Author’s Quick Guide To Turning Your Speech Into A Book. In this book, Kristen gives you steps and resources (some of them are free) designed to help you finally get that book written. You will learn how you can use your smartphone to speak your book into existence. You will learn when you may need some professional assistance. She even gives examples of how she’s turned her own speeches into books. You’ll definitely want to add this one to your arsenal.

I know I wasn’t supposed to be doing any work yesterday what with it being the holiday and all. However, when my friend Kristen Eckstein posted that she had a new book out on Amazon, I couldn’t help myself. I’m sorry hubby. I had to spend some money on this book, Author’s Quick Guide To Making Money With Your 99 Cent Kindle Book. I actually have one book out on Amazon at that price so this title intrigued me. I’m always looking for ways to make money with things that I’ve already finished. I must say that I picked up a TON of ideas from reading this book. Of course that is going to add to my never ending to-do list, but oh well. That’s life in the big city. Do yourself a favor. Click on the link below (yes it is an affiliate link and I will get a commission if you purchase through my link) and learn how your small business can make more money by writing and selling a kindle book on Amazon for a mere 99 cents.
Author’s Quick Guide to Making Money with Your 99-Cent Kindle Book
Of all of the internet marketing books I have collected and read over my time working on the internet, this one is still one of the most informative and useful ones I have come across.
Written in 2001 by Charles Burke, this ebook is a series of interviews with some of the most savvy and successful business owners on the net. It is crammed full of words from these people taking about how they manage their own thinking and emotions and lives AND the things they DO to help themselves build greater success.
I know I already reviewed this book. This post was one of those that I lost when I was “fixing” my blog. Therefore, I have to repost it so that the information will still be here. Here goes…
I had the privilege of interviewing Linda Bishop on my Radio Show, DeAnna Troupe Teaches Online Networking a while back. She is the author of Selling In Tough Times. I got the chance to read this book before I interviewed her and I must say it was an excellent and timely book. This book simply gives common sense strategies any business owner can use to increase sales. Get your copy of this book today by clicking on the icon below.
This week’s book review is about the book: $7 Secrets-How To Sell InfoProducts For Only $7 And Make A Lot Of Money Doing It.
I loved this book! First of all it’s short. It’s only 33 pages. That’s short enough to digest in one sitting. The language is simple. It doesn’t have a whole lot of technical jargon in it.
The best part about this is anyone can do it. It doesn’t really take a lot of know how to write a 30 page book about a topic that you’re already passionate about anyway.
This book is an excellent place to start if you’re looking for information about all of this web 2.0 stuff. This book talks about how you can make money using the power of the crowd. Get your copy today by clicking on the icon below:
