Okay, I know other people have been doing this forever. There’s even a book out called “The Story Behind the Story.” I’m not sure if anyone has the title “Blog Behind the Book” but if so I guess I’ll find out. I’m pretty sure you can’t copyright a title.
Anyway, long way of saying that I went through the blog posts about YWYS and put them in first to last order (by hand! anybody know an easier way of doing this?). So now I have the completed Blog Behind the Book for YWYS. I also have one for Gypsy and also The Paris Notebook. Just waiting until those novels get published to get some links going.
The process of putting together BBtB is really not difficult, just a bit slow. There’s not a ton of editing, just reformatting in Word.
I’m thinking of uploading this on Kindle for free. Not sure anyone wants to read all the pages of blogs about the process of writing and (self) publishing a book. But if there is, this can be out there. Took me all morning and afternoon and now it’s time to go have a really late lunch and then watch Oprah.
Tomorrow I’ll figure out if I can put BBtB on Kindle for free and I’ll link to it here on the site as well.
