I'm so excited about this guide. I keep hearing over and over again about how authors, even non-published authors should be blogging. I found a lot of resources for non-fiction writers, but this is the first guide I have come across that actually lists A LOT of workable and realistic blogging ideas for fiction writers. Also, reading the different ideas helped me to brainstorm several of my own topics. Thank you Ms. Ball for publishing this guide. It is exactly what I was looking for.

I got a review copy of this from the author and I think it will be very useful to a lot of folks in a fairly narrowly defined audience.

If you blog a lot then you don't need this book. It should be clear from the title that this is for folks who are having a hard time coming up with things to blog about but hey, a review is longer than a title so I can make it more clear here.

This is for people who want to blog, like blogging, feel like it is a good way to connect with their audience, and frequently look at their screen in complete bewilderment at what to write that would interest anyone. In a nutshell, the advice is to write about your writing. Write about your characters, the decisions you made about them, the decisions you made about the decisions the characters made, the research that went into the book, how you got the idea for the book and so forth. A lot of time it seems that writers don't realize that being a writer makes you different than the vast majority of your readers. People want to know what it's like. Of course, she gets more specific and more specific is good.

The bottom line is that I don't think I am in the target market (I have a hard time believing people aren't interested in everything I have to say) and I got a little bit out of it so I think if you are in the target market, you'll get a lot of out it.

In my opinion, this is a GREAT book for anyone new to blogging! For quite a while now, I've been mulling around in my head the idea that I should be blogging, but how and what? I don't have any published stories in magazines (yes, a couple of rejection letters!) and no published books... not even a completed book. So where do I begin? I found a book in a book store about how to blog a book, and although it was geared to non-fiction writers, I bought it. I'm glad I did because it spurred the creative juices to push further on. So I searched on Amazon for something about FICTION BLOGGING and this is one I came up with. There's a LOT of great info included in this book by Krista D. Ball! She says that one does not have to be published to start blogging. She tells how to craft a blog, what one CAN include and things that one SHOULD (and shouldn't!) include in blogs. A little bit of humor is there in perhaps the exaggeration of what NOT to blog about, but such practical advice. Do read it for yourself and I think you'll find yourself smiling at least once or twice while she's getting her points across! And she gives so many GREAT ideas for jump-starting a blog whenever a writer comes to a day when he or she thinks there's nothing (or nothing more) to write about. THANK YOU, KRISTA, for sharing down-to-earth details and ideas of how to create and maintain a fiction writer's blog!!!

Many novelists fail to take full advantage of blogging as a promotional tool because they just aren't sure what to write about. With "No More Blank Screen: Blogging Ideas for Fiction Authors," there's no more excuse for not blogging! This book is packed with practical advice to help novelists promote their books through blogging. Highly recommended."
