any guess to the racial break down of the gunmen ?
If you write and market this book the right way, I think that it has the potential to match or surpass your current income from your website.
Be sure that you title it something akin to "How to live on $500 per month in Paradise" or something similar. The BIGGEST mistake the "How an Average Man Lived an Adventurous Life" guy made was that title. It doesn't communicate what people want to know. Therefore, I'm sure that his book sells much less than it otherwise could have. Additionally, it seems that the better title is wide open, meaning that no one else has written a book with such a title. Grab it.
Definitely get it edited by at least two qualified people. Bad editing, or lack of editing, will ruin a book. I've seen it. Especially because your used to writing in an abbreviated style for the web. Don't skimp on the editing. Additionally, after your done writing it, take a couple of months off, and don't look at it. Then go back and read it again. You need time off from your own writing to be able to look at it in an objective way. You'll be surprised at how much you rewrite after you take time off.
Don't hold back. The world appreciates actual usefulness, and disrespects shallow information. The more useful your book, the more that it will sell.
Good luck. I'm sure that it will be a fun, but tedious, process.
