EBook Publishing
 
DEFINITION

An eBook is an electronic format of a book. It is digital in nature. It can be read on your PC, Laptop, Tablet, Smartphone or eBook reading devices like Kindle Fire, Nooks and Sony Reader, with an eBook reading software or Apps install on it. As technology and Computer devices grow, there was a shifting from old conventional printed book to an electronic book format.

In this book, I assume you are a Writer or an Author or eContent Developer, who wants to publish his or her books in an eBook form.

There are so many reasons why people nowadays chose and prefer to publish their books and writings in an eBook form:

1. It is cheaper to publish an eBook than to publish a physical book with the old traditional Publishing System.

2. It is easy to distribute. There is no need for bookshelf, racks and big wide room to keep them. No load whatsoever. It is sent digitally to buyers within seconds.

3. Easy duplication. Makes it once and make a million copies of it in minutes or seconds. In traditional Book Publishing system, you know what it means to produce 100,000 copies of your book. Digital eBook publishing solves that problem in seconds.

4. It doesn’t occupy space. A single USB Flash Drive of 8GB can hold 500 eBooks with ease. So you can be carrying 500 books in your pocket with only the weight of the USB Flash felt. Your Laptop can turn into an eBook Library that the biggest bookshop in the city cannot rival it.

7. It is easy to purchase. Just go to the eBook publishing website and purchase an eBook. Within 5 minutes, your eBook is downloaded into your eBook reading device. You can even read some sample chapters of an eBook before you buy it. [Just like you are reading this one now.]

Above are just 7 reasons out of the numerous reasons why eBook is becoming popular and why people now prefer it to physical or printed book.

Because of these advantages and shift from physical book to eBook, Authors and Writers and eContent Developers [Like Magazines, Newsletters and Articles writers] are now publishing their works in an eBook format.

The problem now is that, What Does It Takes To Publish An eBook?

What it takes to publish an eBook is what I want to share with you here.

I don’t want a complex and lengthy write-up on this stuff. Many books that I have read about how to publish an eBook, make the process so complex and lengthy that it piece me off. Anyway, that was how I learnt how to publish an eBook. But after I understood the process, and having published 5 eBooks myself on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com, I now understand the whole process in a more compact and simplified way.

THE 5 STAGES OF EBOOK PUBLISHING

Publishing an eBook can be divided into 5 main stages of activities.

I would take each of these stages one by one and tell you what they mean and what you should do at each stage. So pay attention.

STAGE #1:
WRITING OF THE BOOK
TO BE PUBLISHED

Before you publish your eBook or any writing project like Magazine, Newsletter or Article, it must first of all be written. So write your eBook content first.

Here you decided what type of eBook you want to write. Book, Magazine, Newsletter or an Article.

If it is a book, what type of book do you want to write?

There are 2 types of book you can write: Fiction or Non-fiction.

FICTION: Books that are imaginary in nature. Like novels, thriller. They are not necessarily true life story, but imaginary story. You will hear people say Science Fiction, imaginary story of a man who has a Space Shuttle he uses in transporting his wife and two children to Jupiter every summer. That kind of book is called Fiction.

NON-FICTION: These are books on true life issue. Like this book you are reading now is a Non-fiction book. How to run a successful family. Beauty and merit of being humble. Godliness is blessed. The 10 laws of success. Archimedes Principles of Floatation. How to start a poultry farm. Mathematics made easy. Budgeting for novices: are all Non-fiction write ups.

So you need to decide the type of book or eBook content you want to write first before you begin.

In this book, I assume you are an Author and a Writer and you want to write an eBook and not a magazine or newsletter or article for publication on a blog.

WHO ARE YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE?

The book you want to write, who are your target audience? What group of readers are you targeting? This is very important before you write your eBook. Writing a book on “How To Raise Children” for 14 years old teenagers, is a waste of time. But if that book is for the First Time Moms, that would be a good bet.

Don’t write book for general public except religious book, like: The Salvation Of Your Soul. How To Make Heaven. Love Your Neighbor As Yourself. All these are good for general public. But if you want to write a book on “Menstrual Pain And How To Handle It”, definitely your book audience are not men. It is purely for women who understand the subject matter.

So know your target audience before you starts writing. You can write to solve a particular type of problem. You can write to address a particular issue. How To Farm Snail. How to produce orange juice. Ginger drink production. How to sell your product. All these book titles target a particular audience. Let your writing target some group of people. This book you are reading is only meant for Authors and Writers and eContent developers who want to know what it takes to publish an eBook.

THE TITLE OF YOUR BOOK

Decide what the title of your book will be. Title matters. It helps to market your eBook. It helps to get the attention of the buyers of your book. You must know how to use attention getting title that will tell the reader what to expect in your book. Just like the title of this book now. When you pick it, instantly, you know what this book is to do for you. The title of your eBook matters so much. It must be able to compel buyers to buy it.

Let the title of your book be well researched to inform your audience what the book is all about.

BEGIN TO WRITE YOUR BOOK

After you have solved audience issue, and you have gotten an attention grabbing title. You need the Table Of Content of your book. What kind of information will your book contain?.........
