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

How to turn your blog into a book (e-book and/or paperback)

“Easy peasy”

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 uploading the file to www.kdp.amazon.com

Then the book was published overnight (our time here in “little” NZ). It usually takes them between 6-8 hours

Simple, Simon (but my name’s not Simon)!

Note

I normally do a couple of quick edits (loath editing – it shows, c) after publishing and these changes appear online in a few hours (with an email acknowledgment from Amazon).

Now onto doing the paperback version of my book with Createspace.
