Send to Kindle

Thanks to the popularity of the internet and ebook readers, such as the Amazon Kindle, writing e-books is becoming a good moneymaking opportunity.

So, how can you write an ebook?

1 – Choose a Category

Write about what you know. This is your expertise, so you should stick with it. If you later want to expand to creative writing, do so. This will make writing an ebook easier.

As for the category, choose a topic that is interesting to you, such as working from home, parenting, or saving money. Or, choose an issue that is important to Americans, such as how to lessen the impact of global warming, how to make money from home, and so forth.

2 – Create a Title for Your ebook

If writing a how-to book, this will be very easy. What does your e-book show readers how to do? If it is about saving money, a good title would be “How to Keep Money in Your Wallet.”

3 – Write Your Introduction

Summarize the purpose of your ebook, as well as your reasons for writing it.

4 – Write Your ebook

Create an outline first. If you want to show people how to save money, start by outlining the ways one can save money. There is saving money on groceries, eating out, clothes, travel, utilities and so forth. Each of these can be a section or chapter.Inside each chapter, break down into sections. For example, saving money at the grocery store can have one section that highlights why you should, how it can increase your savings, how you can use coupons, tips for finding coupons, and tips for getting full use out of them.

5 – Write Your Conclusion

Your conclusion should summarize your ebook and what readers just learned. Restate some of your most helpful and money saving tips.

6 – Edit Your ebook

Proofread and edit your ebook.

Now that you know how to compose an ebook, you may wonder how to make money from it. The good news is that you have many options. You can create a website and sell your ebook from there, use a third party marketplace,  or convert your ebook to digital text and sell it as an Amazon Kindle book.
