Week 7: The Next Big Thing

Coral at Alchemy of Scrawl roped...er, asked me to participate in this Work In Progress Blog Hop. So here goes...

What is the working title of your book?

Book Bloggers' Handbook

Where did idea for your book come from?

Shortly after I started blogging, I participated in Armchair BEA. One of the topics was sharing tips and tricks. I started to share whatever I learned and at the beginning the year started a weekly Tips on Thursday series. Soon, I got involved with a group of book bloggers and they encouraged me to turn the series into a book.

What genre does your book fall under?

It is non-fiction/self-help.

Which actors would you choose to play the characters in your book?

There are no characters in my book.

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?  

Tips and tricks to help you make your book blog everything you want it to be.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

I will query a few presses that accept unrepresented manuscripts, but if that goes no where I will self-publish.

How long did it take to write your first draft of your manuscript?

I'm still in the process of writing my first draft. It's a slow process given everything else I have on my plate right now.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I haven't seen many books that are specifically for book bloggers, particularly if you have been blogging for more than 6 month. I've looked at Creative Blogging: Your First Steps to Successful Blogging. Another blogger told me about The Slippery Art of Book Reviewing.

Who or what inspired you to writer this book?

I was inspired by the community I found among book bloggers to start my Tips on Thursday series. But without the encouragement of a few ninja bloggers I would never consider turning it into a book.

What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?

My weekly tips posts are just a glimpse of what will be included in my book. If you've been blogging 6 months or more you will find useful information on creating new content and expanding your audience.
