From Blog to Book

What is the difference between a blog and a book? How to you make the transition from writing the former to writing the latter, and why would you want to?

In conversation with Ben Arogundade, writer and blogger Jessica Jones outlines the process she went through to transform her successful blog, Chemo Chic, into a book, ‘The Elegant Art of Falling Apart’, and get it published in Australia and the UK. She discusses key stages in the process such as:

  • how to create a structure
  • the importance of a title
  • developing a proposal
  • working with an editor

She also gives us insight into the state of publishing today and the new publishing models that are emerging, including self-publishing.
