How to turn your blog into a book. “Easy peasy”

7 May

How to Write and Publish YOUR Book

My ebook: A Champion of Hope

I’m just experimenting turning one of my WordPress blogs (www.achampionofhope.wordpress.com) into a short Amazon e-book (and then) a paperback with Createspace (an Amazon subsidiary).  “Easy peasy”, as it only took  about 20 minutes to copy and paste my blog posts into creating a Word.doc, submit the details to Amazon, including the file to www.kdp.amazon.com

Note

I normally do a couple of quick edits after publishing and these changes appear online in a few hours (with email acknowledgment from Amazon).
