What is an ebook?
An ebook is typically a .pdf document which is segmented into chapters giving information on niche subjects. ebook's can be sold online and delivered straight away via the internet. That way, both you and the buyer can get what you want instantly!
Think of an ebook subject
You should pick something that everyone will be interested about, or at least something that has not been done before! Try to focus on topics which you know best and provide information that is not easily available on the internet.
Write the ebook
You should start out with a clear outline of what you want to write. Try using an A3 piece of paper and brainstorming your outline idea's before you start typing away! When you're done, you can start writing. Some people like to start from the beginning but this isn't always necessary. You can write the biggest chapters first so you can fit the rest of the ebook into the other chapters.
Next, write your chapters.
They should be clearly segmented and easy for the reader to access and find. If you clump all your information into one or two big chapters, your readers will be discouraged from reading it and will tell others not to buy your ebook.
