What is an e-book? E-books and making Money off them
If you haven’t heard of e-books yet, be prepared to hear about them a lot.
With Internet and BT technologies, the e-book is becoming more prevalent in our lives everyday and can be defined as being the books that we all know and love, but in digital format. They have the feature of being able to be read anywhere (desktop, laptop computers, smart phones tablet computers etc.) and in many different formats. But they are also the herald for a new market. Devices that have the sole purpose of housing e-books are being sold already.
If you are involved with reading and writing, writing e-books can be a way of expressing yourselves freely and sharing information on a topic in which you have expertise, and be in contact on a strictly professional basis with people. It is basically the same as writing a book; it all starts with writing content that people will find interesting (that they will read an buy). On the other hand the cost of publishing and distribution are at a bare minimum means that pretty much anyone can do this with minimal expenses (it won’t pass a few 100 dollars).
I wrote my first book in the e-book format and gained different experiences throughout it. When I started out my head was filled with questions and it was a hard endeavor, but after I learned all the basics, I found it easy to turn this into an income. In fact, if you are thinking of writing a book, I would advise you to do so in this format or at least in this format alongside the traditional book format. Like with every other profession, you can find financial and spiritual results with studying and working on writing an e-book.
When you think of the fact that there are many sites on this issue, you can make the error of thinking that all you have to do is write a book and put it up on a website and that it’s all an easy deal. Everything seems easy from the outside; we call this the mistaken perspective.
The first step to selling an e-book, isn’t writing one. To sell an e-book, the first step is finding people who would want to buy it. A thought that might seem wrong initially is actually a fact. Writing an e-book is a hard process. And if you are doing this along with your day job, this could take weeks, even months. My first book took me 6 months to write. All other responsibilities and hardships limit the time you can devote to writing your book and you shouldn’t forget this fact.
