Writing Your First E-Book
Copyright © Craig Warren
If you’ve noticed on the internet, it’s hard to find a
website one visits that doesn’t have an eBook of some
sort that’s being offered for sale or for free. Let’s
face it the internet survives by being the worlds
greatest source of information.
As someone once said, If you can’t find something on the
internet chances are it doesn’t exist. One of the
reasons E-Books have become so prevalent is that they have
the ability to go viral and subsequently direct increased
traffic to an authors website. If you’ve never written an
eBook because you’re not sure how to do so is
understandable. However its really not that difficult to
achieve if one follows a few simple steps.
Obviously the first thing to do when attempting to create
an E-Book is to decide what you wish to write about. To
avoid the dilemma of writers block choose a subject you
have prior experience in. Pick a topic that brings out
some passion in you. The more passionate you are about a
topic the easier it will be to write it. That passion of
yours will be felt by the readers and add strength to the
After determining what topic you wish to write about you
need to do some preliminary organization. Start by taking
the time to create a title that has a little pizzazz.
List more than one and consult with friends as to their
opinion which one seems to jump out at them. How you
phrase the E-Books title is important. It’s like the bait
on a hook. If you catch a potential readers curiosity it
will be easier to reel them in to investigate the rest of
your writing. Once a title is chosen it’s time to organize
in what direction you wish to take the reader. Make
another list of sub categories which will end up being
chapters. It’s important to keep in mind not to over kill.
Unless you’re a scientist who needs to list all the facts a
topic has available there is no need to over explain ones
content. Keep it simple. Write your information in a
manner that an eighth grader could understand. Like it or
not the majority of Americans do not read at a college
Now, before you actually start to write ask yourself a
few questions. What do you want the eBook to accomplish?
Is your intention to share new information? Does the
information being shared help the reader solve a problem?
Who are you writing too? Are you writing something for
ladies only or are you trying to reach a specific group
and type of person? Are you trying to make your mark as
an expert? Is the purpose of writing this E-Book to
generate more traffic? Along with pondering these type of
questions decide if your project is to be sold or if it’s
going to be a give away. Knowing for sure what you’re up to
will help you to stay focused. It’s easy to get side
tracked when writing. You don’t want to be wondering all
over the place and ultimately leave the reader confused.
Finally, don’t forget to apply basic grammar practices.
Be sure to spell check your work. Misspelled words can
undermine the integrity of your writing. Make sure the
size of the print is easy on the eyes. If possible add
pictures to the E-Book to make the books environment more
pleasing. If you think of the E-Book as a series of small
stories being shared with a friend it’ll take no time at
all to accomplish the task. Don’t let yourself get burned
out. If you start to get tired when writing and that
natural creative flair of yours seems to be on the
downside simply walk away from it for a while.
Writing your first E-Book should and can be a rewarding
experience. If you still feel a little unconfident as to
your ability to take on such a challenge just go online
and find resources that will help you. Remember nothing
succeeds like success. Get that first E-Book under your
belt. Once you do chances are the only problem you’ll
have writing the next time is not trying to write two
E-Books at the same time.
Here’s a realistic way for you to make incredible
monthly income like clockwork. Yes, even if you’re broke
