Maybe a year ago or so I discovered the ebook. I’ve loved how Seth Godin has been giving his ideas away via the ebook for a while and David DuChemin’s ebooks about photography are inspiring and helpful. Ebooks are a low-cost, fast, efficient way to share ideas. They can also look really amazing. And now anyone can be an author. All this made me want to be an author and make an ebook, dang it!
Also, seeing as we’re transitioning out of full-time work with YWAM, I wanted to compile some of the things I’ve learned over the past few years, and share a gift to those I’ve worked with.
One of the big things I’ve learned over the past 8 years is the importance of communication. Not only inter-personal, but also mass communication. Ever since my first high school missions trip I’ve been writing newsletters to my friends and family to tell them what I’m up to and invite them to be part of it. I’ve loved it.
So my first eBook will be about the art of writing newsletters. It’s written specifically for YWAMers, missionaries and anyone in the “newslettering” biz.
It will be available for free download on my blog. I hope that you will enjoy it and benefit from it. See you tomorrow.
