Whether we’re talking about Amazon or any other e-tailer, book descriptions are more important than most authors realize.
Too many times I’ll see blocks of text pulled from the back of the book. In theory, it’s not the worst idea. However, it may not be the greatest idea if your book description isn’t strong, to begin with, or if the book details are just slapped up on Amazon—or Barnes & Noble, iTunes and so on—without giving an eye to things like spacing, bulleting, shorter paragraphs, and boldface.
In this section, we’ll discuss some ideas about book descriptions specifically, and then review some tips you may want to consider in order to enhance your own book description for maximum effectiveness on Amazon.
When it comes to book ads, designing creative that’s enticing is more than half the battle. Your ad image plays a huge role in whether readers are driven to click on your ad and, hopefully, go on to purchase your book. Because of this, you’ll want to ensure you’re designing ads that readers want to click.
The idea of creating your own ad images may be daunting, especially if you don’t have a background in graphic design. That being said, there are many design tools out there to help you get the job done. There’s something out there for everyone, no matter your artistic capabilities.
If you’re having trouble deciding on what tools to use to construct the perfect ad image, look no further. We’ve compiled a list of book ad design tools you can use to create your next ad.
This post is based on episode 198 of the ProBlogger podcast.
If you’ve been blogging for a while but haven’t started monetizing your blog, you might be wondering what income stream you should add first.
This can be a sticking point, whether you’re a new blogger or have been blogging for a while.
There’s no one “perfect” income stream to start with (though I’ll be making a recommendation at the end of this post about the one that suits most blogs).
What you pick will depend on your topic, your audience, and more.

Finishing a book sounds like hard enough work when there’s just one of you. Can working with someone else really help? Yes! says Dan Brotzel, who’s recently launched a novel he wrote with two pals. Here’s the why and the how…
Collaboration down the ages
Co-writing is actually nothing new, and in some areas of writing, it is very common. Shakespeare, as part of a dramatic troupe, had many collaborators, and a work such as the Iliad would have been shaped and polished over generations by many hands.
