Today, we're shaking things up a bit. We usually conduct an interview with the author for blog tour launch days, but since we interviewed Nina Amir a couple of months ago for the WOW! Women On Writing e-zine, we decided to treat you to a book review instead. In case you didn't catch it the first time, you can read an interview with Nina Amir here.
Below, you will find a book review written by WOW blogger Jodi Webb, followed by the author's information, blog tour dates, and a Rafflecopter giveaway where you have the opportunity to win this fantastic book. Be sure to check out the excellent list of blogs we have scheduled for this tour and visit them for more chances to win as well as informative posts not found elsewhere.
Book Review: How to Blog a Book: Write, Publish, and Promote Your Work One Post at a Time by Nina AmirBy Jodi Webb
Halfway through chapter two I was a true believer! Not only does How to Blog a Book show you how blogging can work with any type of book, but it also points out so many advantages both during the writing process and the promotion process that you’ll find yourself saying, “Why didn’t I think of this?” Amir approaches the topic of blogging a book by assuming that we know nothing about blogging but are willing to learn everything. She teaches the basics and quickly moves on to advanced tips and information—a method that will make even the most techno-challenged writer believe that they can master the art of blogging. This book is not just about blogging. Amir addresses book proposals, promotion, social media and more. She also points you toward even more information with lists of websites, books, and blogs that can help you in your quest for publication.
Perhaps the most important aspect of How to Blog a Book is Amir’s enthusiasm. She thinks blogging a book is the greatest thing since sliced bread and her enthusiasm is contagious. Even if you never considered blogging or even writing a book you’ll find yourself mulling over ideas for your blog-book. How to Blog a Book is not just a book of information. It is a book of inspiration.
