Writing a book doesn’t have to take years to write. You can write one in a few short weeks. In fact, you could have one written in as little as the next 1–4 weeks time.
I am not talking about during November when you’re writing for NANOWRIMO. you don’t have to have as much as 50,000 words written to do it either. It can be as small as 25,000–30,000 words and still be a great book (this averages out to 80–100 pages for your book).
How can you do this, you ask?
If you have been blogging for a long time you might already have 90% of a book written already. You can use some of your blog articles to create a book.
Do you blog in a particular niche? Have you written many different articles about a particular topic in that niche?
If you answered yes to these questions you may have 90% of your book done. For instance, your niche is about raising children. Then over time, you have written 30–40 articles about children with ADHD.
You can take those articles and write your book using those articles as chapters or sections. Then write some text tying them together in a cohesive order. Write your introduction and back matter.
Once this is done you edit your book, create a cover, format it, and publish it. The only thing you need to do after that is market the book and sell it. That doesn’t sound too hard, does it?
But what if you don’t have that many articles about one topic in your niche yet? Not a problem. It may take a little longer to write it. But it’s still possible to do it. All you need to do is write one or two articles per day for the next 30 days.
By the end of those 30 days, you will have enough content for your book. The content must add value to your reader to make a great book. If your not an expert on the topic you still can be by the end of your writing each blog article. To become one, you will have to do a lot of research for the articles.
This will work for you no matter if you are a fiction writer or a nonfiction writer. If you are a fiction writer you can still write a chapter each day. Or you can even write one short story at a time and turn it into an anthology. You have to be careful to write at least 25,000 to 30,000 words like mentioned up above.
When you publish each article on your blog keep track of all the comments from your readers. You can use these comments in your book as examples from real people.
Or you can use the comments as testimonials and reviews. These can help to sell more copies of your book. Books that have reviews tend to sell better than books without.
When you write content as a blog article first, you have another way to make money with your content. You’re also motivating yourself to complete a book in a short time.
Some of the different ways to monetize your content:
- Each individual chapter or section can be its own blog post on your blog.
- An ebook sold on amazon
- A paperback book sold on Amazon.
- An audiobook.
- You can also translate them into different languages.
As a blogger it is very important to create many income streams . Especially if you want to quit your job to be a full-time blogger. It’s also important when trying to build a coaching business. It shows you as an expert in your niche.
