Books Resulting from the #AtoZchallenge

A friend of mine shared a book with me that was written because of the A to Z challenge. It contains a selection of alphabet-themed short stories that were originally written for and published on a blog during the A to Z challenge.

My own reference book was originally written as A to Z posts. This has me wondering — how many of us have books out there for sale right now that exist as a direct result of this wonderful blogging challenge?

I would like to see some titles and links! PLEASE ONLY LINK TO BOOKS WRITTEN FOR AND PUBLISHED AS A RESULT OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE.

(Links should go to Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, or other such websites where your A to Z book is for sale.)

What else has participation in the challenge resulted in creating? Is there artwork thanks to the challenge? Games, new recipes, or a travel itinerary perhaps? Talk about it in the comments, please!

  2. I have a picture book manuscript as a result of A-to-Z, but unfortunately haven't polished it enough yet to submit for publication.

  3. I published a book as a result of the A to Z challenge. Not a top seller, but still pretty cool to see it in print.

  6. For the last couple of years I've cross stitch a piece for the A-z Challenge. A couple of my alphabet cross-stitch designs came about because people requested them for their own stitching challenge.

  7. Here's mine that I just finished self-publishing! It's funny that this post came up while I was working on this! https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/706079

  8. No links for you, but I've got several ideas from past Challenges that I'd love to develop someday. It's definitely led to some wonderful stories and ideas!

  9. Oh, yeah! I had wondered about this, too. The A to Z Challenge is a wonderful way to see if anyone's interested in reading your stuff. I self-published my first book after getting such a great response to the topic on the 2013 A to Z Challenge. It's a travel guide to quirky, offbeat & overlooked places called Unexpected Texas: https://www.amazon.com/Unexpected-Texas-Offbeat-Overlooked-History/dp/1495421961

  10. I'm actually working on something right now where the stories in it were started as a result of the A to Z Challenge. Tui Snider is the one who encouraged me to do it too.

  11. I see several here that I want to check out! I know of one fellow who published a book from his posts. And I know of an author who do entries on her research for a book, that I am sure she used to stir some buzz, but also made fascinating historical reading.
