Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul by John Chow and Michael Kwan

It’s easy for freelance writers to pigeon-hole themselves into one particular type of writing within one particular niche. This may be work for some people, since they can better position themselves as experts in their fields, but I’m more inclined to diversify my interests.

In an effort to further legitimize my position as a professional writer, I took the leap into print. Yes, the rumors are true: I co-wrote a book with a certain Internet marketer.

Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul

In case you didn’t catch the most recent episode of Dot Com Pho or read about it on his blog, John Chow and I partnered up to produce a book that talks about the business of making money from a blog. It’s called Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul and it’s being published through Morgan James Publishing, the same people who published The AdSense Code by Joel Comm.

Two Heads Are Better than One

They say that you should stick with your strengths and outsource all the rest. That is the fundamental philosophy behind this book. John Chow is well-known as a successful Internet marketer and he knows more than a couple of things about how to make a buck. However, his writing skills leave much to be desired. I, on the other hand, happen to be a better writer, but I’m not as well versed with the marketing and money-making aspects of running a successful blog.

So, Make Money Online is largely from John’s perspective, talking about his particular journey and outlining some very specific advice, but it is actually written by me. We combine our respective strengths for the best possible product.

While there is plenty of freedom that comes with working at home, many freelance writers still find themselves trading hours for dollars. By co-writing a book like this, I hope to find a respectable source of passive income. This publishing process has taken a lot longer than we expected, so it’d better be worth it.

The book has been sent to the printers, but the actual release date has not yet been confirmed. Follow me on Twitter for the latest updates and you should be able to find Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul through major retailers like Chapters and Amazon. Wish us luck!
