You might remember that in early November, I was in L.A. talking at BlogWorld about ebooks.

The lovely BlogWorld folks told me that I can share my session recording here on my blog – hurrah! This is the first video I’ve ever posted on Aliventures, so I hope you enjoy it.

The presentation is on How to Write Ebooks That Practically Sell Themselves 60 minutes long and in it, you’ll learn:

  • How to find out what your audience wants  so that you don’t waste months writing content that nobody will read
  • How to keep your motivation up over the long haul:  If you abandon your ebook halfway, it’s not going to help anyone
  • How to edit and polish your ebook,  because you want to create a great first impression

If you’re thinking of writing an ebook or if you just want to hear my awesome English accent, then watch away. 🙂

Note: this was very much aimed at bloggers, so it’s about non-fiction ebooks sold mainly through a blog. If you’re working on a different sort of ebook/writing project, plenty of the tips will still apply, though.

Just click on the link to watch the video (you can right-click to download it to your computer):

Quick update: the Blogger’s Guide Charity Sale has already beaten last year’s target! We’ve raised over $800 since Tuesday, with the 3-pack of Guides proving incredibly popular. 

The sale ends at midnight on Sunday, so if you’ve not had a chance to check it out yet, take a look now
