Before beginning, acquire basic skills using Word and
Photoshop, then get on the bandwagon of being an ebook
author. Instructions included to format EPUB and PDF ebooks,
make marketing images, plus pricing, selling and advertising ideas. Cover
illustrations included as examples to create your own. I mostly use the ebook format to sell dance and meditation instructional
manuals. 3,300 words.

How to Write an Ebook
1. Pick a topic.
2. Pretend you're in school and have been asked to write a term paper. Writing an ebook is like writing a term paper. When you have chosen a topic, make an outline of possible chapter titles.
3. Take time to thoroughly fill in each chapter in a logical sequence from beginning to end. Each chapter is part of the step-by-step process. The last chapter should be about you, the author, with a brief biography, and contact information. Include your email address and website URL.
4. Use a text program that has spell check to write your ebook. I use MS Word. When your ebook is written, give it to someone to check over for spelling errors in usage, and good grammar.
For example, if you are writing in English and you are not a native English speaker, give it to someone to edit who is a native English speaker. Spelling should be perfect because of spell check. And, use good grammar, so that your work is easily readable.
Make the corrections and keep each new version in a numbered document in sequence, so you know which paper is most recent. For example, Making Jam.doc; Making Jam2.doc; Making Jam3.doc.
