Happy Weekend, WG2E-Land!
Here’s another fabulous way to Reach New Readers:
That’s exactly what Bestselling Amazon Author Theresa Ragan and I have done this holiday season with our Christmas Book…
THE BILLIONAIRES’ CHRISTMAS CLUB will release sometime the next two weeks, and what a fabulous experience it’s been!!!
Not only will our Partnership allow us to each tap into the other’s reader base, but the writing process itself was just a complete joy! And, with both of us typing away, we were able to finish the book in basically about 6 weeks!!!
For THE BILLIONAIRES’ CHRISTMAS CLUB…Think Trading Places meets Tim Allen’s Santa Claus.
What if two Billionaire Bachelors made a bet to see which one could help the most people before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve? And…What if, along the way, they each find the perfect woman to spend the rest of their life with?
Now then…what Theresa and I did was write a Prologue together to set-up this bet. After that, we each wrote a novella featuring our Billionaire Bachelor (you’ll see their names on the place cards on our cover) trying to win that bet. To wrap-up, we then wrote an Epilogue together.
From beginning to end, it was just a dream project! Our writing styles fed off of each other spectacularly! And wow did we have a terrific time watching to see what the other one came up with!
We used Google Docs, which is fabulous for collaborative projects of this nature. That way, we could each write our sections in Word, if we preferred to do so, then copy-and-paste into the Google Doc.
***Note: I’m actually writing in Google Docs now for all of my books. I love it! And I love that it saves on its own every few seconds, and that I can then just save it as a Word Doc right from the Google Doc too. As far as formatting, Google Docs is perfect as is so there’s no silly set-up issues like you do in Word. You just create the Google Doc and start typing! I luuuvvv that!!!
Okay, WG2E-Land: How many of you have tried Co-Writing or are planning to in 2013? Tell us about your experiences. Also, feel free to ask us any questions you might have about the process…
