Blog to book?

People keep asking me why they should spend the time building up a blog. Well, here's one good reason.

"The price, according to a source familiar with the deal but not authorized to discuss the total, was about $300,000, a sum that many in the publishing and blogging communities believe is an astronomical amount for a book spawned from a blog, written by a previously unpublished author."

How do you get $300K from your blog? Read the whole story here.

Then go update your blog. lol

Hi Guys-
I love your blog and wanted to put my two cents in about blogs to books...it's definitely a tricky road but as Diablo Cody (love her or hate her) has demonstrated, it can be done.

Writers like ourselves can also increase chances of publishing success by sending out organized batches of professional submissions. As a freelance writer myself, I know that this takes lots of time and energy. So my partner and I just launched a new writers’ website called WordHustler.com. We’re the first website to take care of the WHOLE process of writing and submitting work.

With WordHustler, you upload your projects, search markets you want to submit to, and voila! We print and ship everything for you. It’s easy to track all of your submissions using WordHustler’s organized tracking system and we cost less than doing it yourself. Most importantly, WordHustler saves you time so you can do what you’re supposed to be doing: WRITING.

Please take a look and good luck writing!
