Writing a book for any platform is a challenging feat in and of itself, but it’s made moreso when you bring in the how-to and e-reader publication process. Luckily, for those beginners that already love to write, this article gives you a quick guide to reference when you need to feel inspired to write a successful e-reader book about something—anything—that you know all about.
What Do You Know and Love with a Good Following of Diverse People? Who Will Be Your Audience?
What are your favorite hobbies, interests, likes, and passions? What do you spend lots of time doing? What have you perfected over the years? Make a list of your hobbies and passions, then narrow it down to things you know a lot about. Now ask yourself about audience. Would there be a lot of people reading your e-book? Does your hobby or passion have a large following?
Find something you can already note as popular and build on it. You can do obscure hobbies or interests after your first e-book is a success. Save that book on telephone systems sales and profits for another time.
Before You Write Anything Else, Give Your Book-to-Be a Solid Outline with a Break Down of Content by Chapters
You need something to follow, like an outline or a format concept, to give your e-book structure. A well-organized approach will better organize your thoughts too. It answers the question of where to begin by giving you an idea of composition. Don’t do any solid writing until you have a breakdown of what your chapters, introduction, and final product will be.
Tip: Research the format of the specific e-book reader that you plan to publish on. Each e-reader has a different structure to follow. Or you could hire someone, like a professional freelance writer, to format your e-book after it’s finished.
Toss in Relevant Pictures, Self-Taken When Possible, to Keep Your Audience Engaged Throughout Your Book
Audience engagement is what holds someone’s attention throughout a book—e-book or old-fashioned. Ergo, you need something that draws their attention, like self-taken pictures of the hobbies and passions you write about in your publication. Sprinkle your book with high-quality, clear pictures of interesting things to keep your readers engaged throughout.
