Here are the show notes for the most recent episode of the Christian Publishing Show.

how to create workbooks

It’s very common these days for books, especially nonfiction, to come with additional workbooks, study guides, and video courses. These extra materials are also a great way to connect with your readers on a deeper level, while at the same time creating additional income and incentives. Paper and digital don’t need to be at war; they can work together.  

But how do I know if a workbook companion or study guide is right for my book? How do I know what content to include? What formats and programs should I use to create these supplementary products?  

We have a special guest with us today to help us answer these questions.  

She is the bestselling author of over 40 online courses; and she has taught thousands of authors and entrepreneurs how to transform their knowledge into books, workbooks, products, and online courses.

    Tie-ins are a great idea
    to help one sell a book,
    so let me run a couple by ya;
    tell me how they look?
    I’m writing about Norsemen
    along the Christian path;
    toy Viking ship’s a natural, then,
    for the kiddies’ bath,
    and a helmet made of brass
    (the horns are optional),
    but would this appear too crass
    and unprofessional?
    And, perhaps, is there a need
    for rich non-alcoholic mead?

    I write fiction and am curious if book tie-ins are a possibility in the fiction realm. I heard that perhaps at homeschool conventions this might be a plus. I’m actually working on a card game that goes with my middle grade ms. and have enjoyed the process of creation even if the likelihood of the game ever being made is low. Have you seen something like this work out?
