One of the highlights of my (admittedly nerdy) calendar is BlogWorld Expo. It’s a conference about blogging and all things social media … and it’s full of people like me.

Yeah, that might well put off anyone normal – but as I’ve mentioned before, writers aren’t normal.

Last year, I had a blast as a delegate at BlogWorld Expo: this year, I’m even more excited, because I’m going to be speaking.

I’ll be giving a talk on How to Write Ebooks That Practically Sell Themselves. It’s going to cover the geeky end of ebooks – highly specialised ones, sold through the author’s blog/website rather than through Amazon.

I’ll be covering things like:

  • Why “I’ve got a great ebook idea!” makes me go “uh-oh…”
  • The types of ebooks which work well for bloggers – and the ones which are doomed to flop
  • What you must do before you write the first word
  • How to actually finish an ebook (cos you can’t sell a half-written draft…)
  • Ways to build on your first ebook

Obviously, I’m not the only attraction at BlogWorld Expo. I’m not even the main one. There are a dozens of amazing speakers lined up – you can see some of the key ones on the BlogWorld Expo front page here.
