Publish Your Own E-Book

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

How To Create An E-Book
People are always on the look-out for
how to do, make, sell or profit. Life's
experiences are stuffed-full of writing

Ideas are bought to life through the e-book

E-book is an abbreviation for electronic book,
digital book. A reader is required before an
e-book can be read on your computer.

Benefits to the e-book process are many.

People will pay for informative products. The
low over-head costs, easy distribution through
a download/web site and publishers can't squeeze
in their vision appeals to most.

There's no need to search high and low for a
publisher when you can do the e-book process.

Decide on a subject to explore or write about.
Pick more than one writing idea. Select five.
Sometimes, there's nothing else to say about
a writing idea, or you get bored with it. If
one writing idea isn't working, go to the next

A writing idea should excite your imagination,
and have mass appeal.

The title catches the reader's attention. Snap
his/her eyes back. Titles make statements,
question today's norm or give readers a new look
at a topic.

Some outline. The idea of graphics is kicked around
the mind. Graphics end-up as the e-book's cover.

The cover, graphics, should reflect the contents.
It, too, must please the eyes. A title is inviting.

Consider a Table of Contents, and an Appendix.

How will you spread the word about it? Viral
Marketing is used. Viral Marketing is free.
It saves time and money.

It means that social networks are used to
promote your e-book. Word of mouth spread
via the Internet works well too. Get creative.

Perhaps, a video on YouTube would stir-up the
buzz about your e-book. Start a chat on Facebook
about your e-book. Leave no social network

Tell people too. Let friends and relatives know.
Drop a word, start a conversation, about your
e-book when out.

E-book publishing is made with an Adobe PDF file,
which can be done using a full version of Adobe
Acrobat. Most computers are sold with a free version
of Adobe Reader.

Begin making your e-book by opening a blank document,
or Microsoft Word File. The font size is Roman 12
point, and single spacing is used. Or, you may
prefer Verdana, 11 point.

Sizes for e-books are 5 1/2 by 8 1/2, or 6 X 9 by
8 1/2. Adjust Microsoft Word File to your choice.

Name and book titles are in the header. Page numbers
are centered at the bottom of each page. Major points
are displayed in bold type.

The e-book process can become a business.

About Me

My photo

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
