More shades of grey areas
Have you considered publishing your blog as a book? This is not something that had crossed my mind until now. This is a route that blogger/marketeer Seth Godin has taken. He regularly publishes content from his website in book form. People apparently want web content for free but are willing to pay for the same content in books.
I just thought I’d throw this into the debate as my blog on “Shades of grey areas” seems to have raised more questions about e-publishing than it set out to answer by the responses I received from fellow bloggers. And those responses inspired me to do a little more research into self-publishing/e-publishing.
In the same vein as Seth, the Poynter Institute‘s website has published a report on how a journalism class published a multi-platform book on bullying. This is a lesson for anyone in terms of writing, editing and marketing their e-book. Oh, and never giving up on your idea. Self-belief is half of the battle.
The multi-platform idea really grabbed my attention, as I am wondering whether to film my play “Martini Bond: Her hunt for the spy who loved her mum” and upload it onto YouTube. Not only would it be a record of the show, but friends, family and dare I say fans could also experience the play round the world. I’m just not sure what type of high quality gear would do it justice…I’d probably need something bigger than an iPhone.
Anyone got any ideas?
