Hi Ali,

Thank you for creating a very useful and inspiring blog! I was very encouraged today, while reading 7 Habits of Serious Writers. I’ve signed up for your free eBook and I hope to stay connected…as I am an aspiring (serious) writer, currently in southern China, where I am trying to complete a novella series close to my heart, launch a series of (English learning) eBooks for the Chinese market and still hold down a (fairly demanding) “day job” (teaching English). I was feeling a little down today…but then the tide took me to your delightful blog and I now feel the courage returning…all because you first roused enough courage to actually follow through! So again, THANK YOU. I see that you’re based in the best place in the world…Oxford. I spent a summer there in 2003, while completing a literature programme at Exeter College, Oxford U, and I hope to make the UK my home one day.

God bless you.

Hi Ali,
Can you help me with this question? Is it still possible to sell an Ebook without having a blog- or is that the past? Thank you.


Ali July 15, 2013 at 2:54 pm

It’s certainly possible — but you’d need to think about how you’d market your ebook (e.g. through Facebook, Twitter, paid advertising…)

With my first ebook, I didn’t have an (active) blog of my own — I guest-posted on other people’s blogs to promote it. If you’re writing non-fiction, having your own blog is really helpful; for fiction, I think it’s less important.

Thank you, Ali.You helped me with this.
