Lori previously appeared here on BlogcastFM in our post Lori Deschene On Taking Tiny Buddha from Blog to Book Deal. And now, given that her book recently came out, I decided to bring her back on to talk about the end result - the writing process and the promotional plan behind the launch of the book. Here are some highlights from our chat:
  • What Lori Looks for in Contributions to the Tiny Buddha Web Site
  • An In-depth Look into the Process of Writing a Book
  • How to Outline a Book and Create Structure from Your Blog Posts
  • How to Involve Readers, Fans, and Followers in the Content Creation Process
  • Why You Should Just Start Writing  - and Connect the Dots When It's Finished
  • The Importance that Your Platform Plays in the Publishing Process
  • Supplemental Items that Lori Included as Part of Her Book Launch
  • An Amazing Photo Competition on Life's Hard Questions that Got Lori's Readers Involved
  • A Guest Post Blog Tour Lori is Using to Spread the Word About Her Book
Lori Deschene is the founder of Tiny Buddha. Her new book, Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions, is available at online retailers and independent bookstores.
