It's here! The exciting announcement promised last month. How did three years go by so quickly. I have found my closest blogging friends through the IWSG monthly blog hop. Every anniversary should include a special gift from the heart. Read onward and discover what this gift to all of us from all of us will be. As usual, not only is the IWSG the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh, the idea of a book sprang from his busy, creative mind. Thanks, Alex.
Today marks three years since the very first IWSG post. Next month marks one year since the IWSG site and Facebook group opened. And we’d like you to help us celebrate!
The IWSG Team is putting together an eBook that will benefit all writers - The IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond. And we invite all IWSG members, Facebook members, and followers to contribute.
Here are the details:
The three topics will be writing, publishing, and marketing.
Each contribution needs to be between 200 and 1000 words. Focus on one of those three aspects and give us your best tip or procedure. The essay can include bullet points, top ten lists, and recommendations. (Websites, software, books, etc.)
You can either post it for your TheIWSG@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (Since the length can go over the standard IWSG post length.) Include a one sentence byline and a link to your site. Also state that you give us permission to use it in the book and which topic it falls under. (We will only edit for misspellings and grammar mistakes.) IWSG post or email it directly.
All submissions need to be sent or posted by . We will compile them into an eBook and aim for an early December release. The book will be free and available for all eReaders.
Thank you for making the IWSG such a huge success!!
I hope your mind is spinning with ideas for your contribution. Wouldn't you love to see your expertise shared in this terrific book. Remember everyone knows something helpful. You can share something that didn't work for you as well as something that did. If you're not already a member of IWSG, this month is the perfect time to get on board. There are so many wonderful writers involved in this group that I expect a spectacular book. No pressure, everyone. Do you have an idea already? Will you be taking advantage of the free book in December? Early Christmas present for yourself.
