How To Write And Publish An Ebook - Articles Surfing
When I first got interested in writing an eBook, I scoured the Internet looking for instructions on just exactly how to do it*they didn't exist.
I found a ton of advice on writing about what you know, how to discipline yourself to write and even schedules for writing. Internet">All of that was fine, and even useful, but I needed to know how to actually publish one of the eBooks and nobody was giving me that information. If you are in the same boat, here's how you do it:
First, you must use Microsoft Word to write your eBook. Make sure you start each new section on a new page. Include a table of contents and a title page. If you are not familiar with this program, search for a tutorial online.
Once you have your eBook written and formatted correctly, you need to get it in PDF format. This is what everyone writing an eBook does now. It's safer than an .exe fie because you cannot put a virus in it and Internet users are aware of this fact. Also, Mac users can read PDF and you don't want to exclude anyone.
Adobe Acrobat has a free trial version you can use to publish five eBooks. Go to Adobe Acrobat and set up an account, all you need is an email address.
Click on the button that says *create PDF*. You will see a browse button that allows you to locate your file in your documents folder. Make sure you click on the *Publish as an eBook* selection and then list the pages you want to convert (1-how ever many pages there are).
You will need to select how you want to retrieve your eBook when it is done. I always have them email the link to my eBook. You have five days to pick it up.
Click on the link in your email to pick up your eBook. You will be given the option to view your eBook, which is what you will want to do to make sure everything worked properly. You can then hit the save button within the document and save a copy to your computer. I always save it into my pictures folder for easy upload to my website.
That's it in a nutshell.
I would certainly recommend you get a detailed instructional course on this subject if you plan to write an eBook to earn money. I have a very in depth Ebook on how to write and publish your eBook on my website. It is free of charge and should be extremely helpful in not only writng your eBook, but marketing it as well.
eBooks are often given away free to build your list of future potential buyers of your products. Make sure you give them value or they will never spend money on something else you have produced. This is why it is so important to do an excellent job writing and formatting your eBook.
You do not have to make it a long ebook, but it needs to answer the readers questions and leave him or her feeling they did not waste their time and can realistically apply what you have taught them.
