Is there a book inside you? Get started with a PDF eBook. Where does your interest lie? Fiction or self-help books? In this article I refer to both.
To create a PDF eBook, whether it’s fiction or self-help, you’d better start writing in an MS Word document.
If you’re going to write a fiction or self-help book, you’re better off writing a rough draft on paper and then quickly typing it up in an MS Word document.
You just don’t want to write an ordinary or average fiction or self-help book. Whether it’s a paid or free book that you’ll be writing to grab the attention of your right audience, it’s best to write a brilliant, innovative book that your audience will love.
For fiction eBooks, write an interesting story from your life experience. In that case, you won’t have to work hard to come up with imaginary characters and come up with a plot. You just have to write the story as you know it and write it in MS Word.
On the other hand, self-help books can be in the area of health and fitness, improving confidence or the power of concentration a lot. There are plenty of books in these niches, so you’ll need to find a great title with great, innovative content.
The ebook you write on self-help should provide insightful solutions to one or two problems. It should be something new that helps attract readers to your niche.
Fiction and self-help books should have copyright information, disclaimers, table of contents, page numbers, preface, introduction, and upcoming chapters about your story if it’s fiction or your chosen self-help title for your self-help ebook.
After completing the writing and typing, go through the chapters thoroughly three times. This gives you the advantage of making your ebook free of grammatical/spelling errors.
Your eBook, whether fiction or self-help, should also have a glamorous eBook cover that you can design yourself by sourcing the appropriate images from the web and using matching/contrasting colors for your book title fonts and name of the author. You can also choose suitable font styles. Or if you don’t want to go through the pain, you can get professional help.
Once your MS Word document is in place and ready, convert it to PDF using the “Save as PDF” option. You can then upload your file to the landing page of your download URL in the backend. Next, send the subscription page URL to your subscribers for your new ebook and also promote it on your Facebook page and website. You are likely to attract many subscribers who download your free or paid eBook. This way, you will not only attract subscribers, but also get publicity for your e-book(s). And once word gets out, more people will sign up for your newsletters and buy and read your e-books. Sounds good?
