How to Write a Book and Get Published Written by Craig Lock
Continued from page 1
letter with your manuscript. Multiple submissions: OK, but always remember to withdraw an offer, if publication is accepted by another publisher. Write immediately. I find multiple submissions save a lot in finding a publisher, as publishers are often extremely tardy in replying to your unsolicitated* (big word) submissions. * that's not standing on unlit street corners at night looking for a publisher for your manuscript! Finally, always try to give your work a 'real professional' look, as befits effort put into your work of art. Then BE PATIENT * A few final words... Writing a book may seem extremely daunting ...and perhaps even impossible to you, as I felt when I started out writing (like flying to moon); but if you believe you have some writing talent just DO IT. As with eating an elephant ("hephelump"), break it into "small chunks". The key is taking that FIRST STEP in writing that first sentence...then one just gets involved in your "work of art", as writing becomes a daily habit. One word simply flows into next...then one chapter just leads on to next one. PERSIST... and as Nike ad says, Just DO IT Then hopefully one day I'll see your name in print.

Top 10 Reasons to Use a Blog to Publish Your EzineWritten by Denise Wakeman

9. Readers can comment on your articles, which creates rapport and trust between you and your subscriber. Comments also add rich content to your site and again, helps your ranking in search engines.
10. The bottom line is this: using a blog can help you attract more visitors who become subscribers and then eventually become clients.
For an ezine publisher, a blog compliments and can significantly ease delivery of your ezine content. Essentially, like any web site, you have to promote it and encourage people to add your site to their RSS feed (that's another subject) or subscribe for updates through a subscription form. That's why I put a subscribe form on my site – subscribers and get updates in anyway they want. You still need to submit to search engines and directories to drive traffic. If you already have an ezine subscriber database, my advice would be to post everything on blog and then send a weekly email, or whatever your normal publishing schedule is, informing your subscribers when new content is posted.
Marketing is done in a conversational way and via links on your blog. Announcements can be posted on blog and to one's list. I see blog and ezine database as complimentary...working together to increase your exposure and make it easier for people to get your information and build relationships.
