how to publish an ebook
How to publish an eBook is a step most online authors take for themselves.

If you are looking for stay at home mom income in the world of e book publishing but just don't know where to start, these tips will get you going.

It used to be that holding a paper or hardback copy of a book was the only way to get published.

My, how times have changed!

With the advent of the internet, ebooks are popping up everywhere.

Once they first started appearing, publishers and readers didn't know what to make of them.

But with the invention of the Kindle, Sony Reader, and the Nook, ebooks are some of the fastest selling books around.

This has opened up a whole other avenue in the world of publication, an avenue we will explore as we explain how to publish an ebook.

Many people publish the traditional way for lots of reasons, notoriety being high on the list.

However, if you are interested in making money at writing, e book publishing offers the potential for lots of compensation.

Most ebooks are "how to" books, though some writers are starting to sell fiction books using this method since the Kindle has gained such popularity. When looking at how to publish an ebook, consider this: most "how to" ebooks are sold at $25-$50.

This is because people are willing to pay more for information they can download right now and use immediately. That being said, an ebook can be converted to a traditional book using the print on demand format explored on this page.

The Instant Book Writing Kit by Shaun Faucett is a great example of an ebook "how to." In this book, the author explains the basics of e book publishing, as well as marketing.

He lists some excellent reasons to use the e book publishing model vs. the traditional publishing house, such as, being able to charge more, no inventory to keep up with, editing at any time, the ability to keep creative control over your book, and to add extra bonus items the reader can download and work with.

He also provides a step by step guide on how to publish an ebook.

How to Publish an eBook - Writing Your Book

Choose a topic you know something about and then do the research to see what kind of interest there if for it.

Is this a subject people want to know more about or is the ebook market saturated with it already? E book publishing is highly competitive so be sure there is a market for your book.

The Instant Book Writing Kit advises you to brainstorm a title and use keywords in it. Keywords are phrases that people type into search engines when they are looking up a subject. If you are not sure which keywords to use, there are plenty of website who offer to help you find the ones most relevant to your topic.

Once this is done, the next stop is registering the ebook with a copyright and obtaining an ISBN number. Start thinking ahead and register a domain name based on the title of your book. If possible, choose a .com name for your URL.


Learning how to publish an ebook will also require you to learn about creating an ebook cover. Many sites will offer you the option of downloading their templates for free. Some sites charge a fee but you have more options to work with as far as fonts, color, and images.

But book covers are an important selling point, even for an ebook. They are still what a consumer sees before anything else and often determine whether or not someone will purchase your book.

E book publishing is very similar to traditional publishing where this is concerned. It might be worth your while to hire a professional cover designer to assist in this process.

Setting up a table of contents prior to writing is central to the ebook writing process according to the Instant Book Writing Kit. The table of contents is what will guide you in creating a coherent manuscript that others will enjoy.

Once you have written the book, hire an editor to clean it up. It's worth the money to have a professional looking ebook, free of grammatical errors and that reads well.

When choosing a format for your book, PDF is your friend. Most people use Adobe reader when purchasing or viewing an ebook which is compatible to PDF. If you are unfamiliar with this format, there are lots of PDF softwares out there to help you convert your manuscript.

Listing Your Book

Now you're ready to sell the ebook you've been laboring over.

When learning how to publish an ebook, research hosting a mini site for your book to be listed on. This is a page dedicated to the ebook, explaining its purpose, why you wrote it, and most importantly, how to buy it!

Hire a copyeditor who is experienced in writing press releases and promotional pages in order to get the word out about your book. You may be a good writer, but if promotion is not your strong point, then it's a good idea to hire a professional for this phase. You can find lots of copy editors for hire at Elance.com.

Another thing you will want for your minisite is a provider who will handle the payment processing for you. A popular provider in e book publishing is Clickbank. Clickbank charges a small one time set up fee and then takes a percentage of each sale.

This is an easy way to handle credit card transactions and get paid quickly. Another great thing about this provider is that they have lots of marketing affiliates who can market your book in many other places.
