I’m so excited to announce that my first ebook, The Legal Side of Blogging: How Not to get Sued, Fired, Arrested, or Killed will be released on Amazon next week!
I’ve been blogging since 2009 and I wanted to write a book by a blogger for bloggers about the legal issues that come with having a blog. This book is a combination of multiple research projects on the legalities of blogging that I’ve done over the last two years. This books combines the findings of those projects, dumps the legalese, and gives bloggers clear information about issues like copyright, privacy, and defamation.
My family and friends are participating in a collective book purchasing event (aka bum rushing the charts) to give my book a boost in Amazon’s rankings next Thursday, October 4th between 10am and 11am Pacific Time. If you’re planning on buying the book, you’re welcome to join us. And if you love the book, please leave me a review on Amazon.
I’m selling my ebook at $3.99, which is significantly lower than the price many other lawyers put on their books. I wanted my book to be accessible to my audience which is bloggers, not just legal bloggers.
I never could have pulled off this book by myself so I need to thank the people who helped make this possible.
- Jeff Moriarty and Evo Terra of ePublish Unum who taught me almost everything I know about self-publishing
- Scott Sigler and A Kovacs for your support and suggestions
- My copy editor Deborah Bancroft
- My cover art designer Aaron Wood
- Beth Hutchens for doing the legal review
Thank you to everyone else who helped me along the way. It’s been an incredible six months finishing this project. I also made a video about my book’s release here.
