There are many reasons that people want to write ebooks. Some of those are:

  • To impress friends and family.
  • To gain additional customers with their expertise.
  • To create a platform for another product or service.
  • To show they are a leader in their field.
  • To share a passion that they may feel strongly about and want to deliver it to the world.
  • But probably one of the most important reasons is because when you write a good one, you actually are writing for money.

Why do you want to write yours? Not sure? No problem! We are here to help you decide what to write and teach you how to write an ebook! Deciding to be an ebook writer is the first step.

What Should I Write About?

Once you decide you'd like to be an ebook writer you need to figure out what you'd like to write about, and get the details on how to write an ebook.

I know, that's the hard part. But here are a few suggestions that can make it much easier for you! I always suggest that you think about what you already know or want to know.

  • Do you have an interesting job that you think others may find fascinating?
  • How about an unusual hobby?
  • Have you enforced a small claims judgment?
  • Do you know about things that are out of the ordinary? Plants, insects, birds, history of anything, collectables or even famous crimes?

Your options are truly endless.

How Do I Get Started?

So, what you want to know is how to write an ebook? There is a basic formula to follow that consists of five simple steps.

1. Brainstorming. Think about what you know that can help others solve a problem.

2. Research your chosen topic to see if others need this information and there is not already too much of it out there. Or figure out if you can present it in a different way.

3. Research and organize your information so you can write your ebook and make it easily read and understood. You will have to write, edit and re-write to get it just right!

4. Learn about PDF and why you need it to publish your book!

You can check out free pdf writer software and even try it from adobe free, before you decide to buy it!

5. Market your e-book with enthusiasm! You can really write about any subject, but finding a niche and knowing how to reach the audience for that niche is what is most important. If you belong to any type of group or club this is something to keep in mind.

What Type of Ebook Sells Well?

These subjects sell well because people crave information and they don’t want to wait for it.

What Type of Ebooks are Difficult to Sell?

Malicious Intent

I love fiction as much as anyone. I write fiction! But the reality is that fiction is entertainment and therefore doesn’t have the urgency associated to it that is needed in selling e-books.

Now, I am not saying that you shouldn't write fiction if that's what you love to write. I write both fiction and non-fiction and publish all of them in e-book format. Once you have a following, it becomes much easier. So, if you love writing fiction...go for it!

What about experience?

Now, you may be thinking that you don’t have any experience in writing and publishing ebooks but I would bet that you are wrong.

Do you have a website? If so, even if you had someone else put it together for you, you would have had to come up with the content. How about writing a paper for school, or writing a newsletter for your kid’s class? Or a report for your boss? How about a blog or a social site? Do you send e-mail?

You see, anytime you have written something for others to read, you’ve written and published! Cool huh? You are already just about there!

It's great to get step by step information on writing and producing e-books that gives you all the details you need. Writing e-books for fun and profit explains how to get ideas for your e-book as well as how to write an e-book and how to publish and market it.

In a supportive and encouraging tone, it gives step by step information on writing and producing e-books, offers writing advice and checklists to assist the reader to stay on task when creating their own e-book.

Links to writing, publishing and book promotion websites are included!

One advantage of learning how to write an ebook as well as self-publishing e-books is that you have total control over all aspects of your material such as content, layout, distribution and marketing. You also decide how and where to sell your e-book.

Another reason you want to learn how to write an ebook is that even if you decide to publish your e-book with a company such as or, you will receive a very generous royalty of 30% -70%. And in most cases, you decide the price of your book!

Now, all this sounds pretty good doesn’t it?

So, what are you waiting for?
