Did some tweaking to my ebook.

Did some tweaking to my ebook today... mostly minor tweaks, like making the cover larger (didn't realize it, but the size was actually smaller than the minimum required size for KDP Select).  Also did a test upload to my Kindle Fire and it looks great on there! Other than that, made some other minor tweaks, mostly punctuation and format-related things.

Added another chapter to my book

Added another chapter to my book - "Networking Tips for Work at Home Professionals." Put it at the end, since networking is important not only for landing your first work at home job, but also future work at home jobs.  Looking forward to adding additional chapters.

A bit disappointed with the webinar....

Well, I was a bit disappointed with the webinar.  It was only 30 minutes long, and it was an interview with this author named Brian Tracy who had written books on sales, leadership etc.  It gave me a few ideas, but it was mostly an advertisement for a more in-depth online course on how to write an e-book.  The course costs $497, so I don't think I'll be buying it anytime soon.  Still, it did give me some ideas of things I want to look into, as well as four basic steps to writing a book.  Looking forward to applying them as I work on this book as well as (hopefully) future books.

Check out my cover...

Check out the cover I created for my book...

Taking the plunge

So, after writing freelance articles for different sites for many years, I've finally decided to take the plunge and write my first ebook.  The ebook will be the subject I feel I know most about - working from home.  I've been working from home for various companies for the past 10 years, and have written many articles about my experiences with the companies I've worked for.  In addition to that, for the past 18 months or so, I've been a contributing writer for the highly successful work from home blog Work at Home Adventures.  Most of the chapters of the book will consist of information from some of the blog posts I've written.  I created this blog not to promote the book, as much as to share my experiences as I go through the writing and self-publishing process.  I hope you enjoy reading about my journey, and feel free to leave comments on any of the posts I make!
