Blog Party: Ebook Launch

By: | October 29, 2016 | Tags: , , , , |

Come to the #Ebook launch party

Welcome to Our Blog Party Celebrating the Launch of My 1st Ebook!

This Monday my publisher Lois will upload my first ebook, AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BLOG, to the Amazon Kindle Program (AKP).

After ten months of nurturing what people are fondly referring to as my “baby,” I will finally be a published author.

Since people have written to congratulate me, it seemed only fitting today’s blog party be a celebration.

There is a graduation cap on the cake since I am graduating from blogger to published author.

I realize I promised a guest at my last party hamburgers, but it’s not every week you become a published author. The burgers, condiments, and refreshments originally scheduled for today’s menu will have to wait.


An Insider's Look at Creating a Successful Blog Making an Ebook

Early reviews are favorable!

According to Marsha, one of my beta readers, “You have the characteristics that are going to make you and your book a huge success. First, you have a lot of research and ideas that are very helpful. Second, you have a can-do attitude. Third, like a young, capable person that you are, you are experimenting with all of these tools and tips. You WILL make this a successful venture.

Melinda Mitchell declared, “Currently, there are over 1 billion websites online. In order to make yours stand out and achieve visibility, you need an action plan.” If your action plan does NOT include devouring this book, you’ll be sorry! GET IT TODAY!!”


Believing interested readers would preorder before the ebook launch, I compiled five additional social media articles not included in the ebook. As it turns out, the book should be published this Monday, so there will not be any preordering.

Disappointed I can not give out the incentives, I decided anyone who orders AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BLOG within the first month can have the five additional articles.

All they have to do is forward me the receipt, and I’ll email them the link to the incentives.

Let’s Party!

I appreciate you coming to my party to celebrate my impending ebook launch.

In the comments section, you are encouraged to self-promote.

Introduce your blog to the other guests at the party. Tell the readers about your blog, and post a link to your favorite post, a recent post, your About page, your blog link, or anything you like.

If you are not already following Mostly Blogging, I like new subscribers too.

At today’s Meet and Greet, we are having cake.

Enjoy the dessert and the networking.

Note: At other Meet and Greets, guests return and leave different links to articles in different comment boxes. You are welcome to return as often as you like and leave links.

I am hoping others will be able to find new blogs to read and new bloggers to connect with.

Guests, if you think others would enjoy the networking opportunities at the Meet and Greet, please share on your social media.  The more guests at the party, the more networking opportunities for all of us.

If you get a chance to promote the link to this party on your site, that would also be much appreciated since it would help make others aware of this blog party.

    Big congrats Janice! Wishing you much success with the book. And looking forward to your guest appearance in December. 🙂

  12. Eugene Uttley

    Big congrats on your ebook! You know, just about an hour ago, I wrote a note to myself that I needed to seek out the doyenne of blogging. Perhaps I have stumbled across her…

    I have a few ebooks on offer, too. One of them is free right now (today is I believe the last day of the promotion)… find details on that, as well as the need to fight the negative stigma on mental illness, and a world of linkups and hops and original poetry and prose and randomness at the playground that is…

    Thanks for the dessert. Now to click on some of the intriguing links around here.

    Awesome news Janice, congrats on getting your e-book finished!! I know how much work it is. Publishing an e-book (or two) is high on my “To Do” list, hopefully next year…

    Been too busy working away on my blog lately – is a website about rock music and cool guitars.

    Good luck, I hope your book is a smashing success!

      I could not have done it without your help Mark. You know I am not just saying that. You wrote such a glowing introduction. I am seriously lucky to know you. The book was actually published today. As soon as I get a chance to open my email, I will have a link for everyone; you of course will get a free copy.

  16. kristin mccarthy

    Awesome! I am in the first stages of jointly writing my first e-book. Daunting and exciting all at the same time!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kristen,
      Daunting is the word all right. I am glad to hear I am not the only one who thought so. Thank you for writing to tell me and good luck with your e-book.

  17. Reuven

    Way to go, Janice! This is so exciting. I can’t wait for my wife and I to read your book which I just purchased. After all, we’ve learned so much from you, there’s no way we would miss it. And, once we’re finished reading, even before starting to work on your great tips, we’ll visit Amazon to leave reviews.

    You you be blessed with much success. You have more than certainly earned it with all you do to teach, help and support other bloggers!

  18. Naveen Naseem

    Congratulations, Janice. I wish you all the very best. Your posts are always very helpful. I am looking forward to reading your book.

      Hi Naveen,
