Advice on Making Spiritual and Other Ebooks


This article is a synopsis of an instructional ebook, How to Make and Sell Ebooks. I use the ebook format to write dance, spiritual, and meditation instructional manuals, but do make your ebooks about topics in which you are knowledgeable.

No matter what your subject area, I recommend writing the text in an upbeat and flowing style, so the reader will not want to put it down till done. For example, if you are writing a book on ways to practice meditation, include those styles that work for you and leave you feeling uplifted.

Before beginning, acquire basic skills using Word and Photoshop, then get on the bandwagon of being an ebook author.

Instructions in the ebook are included to format EPUB and PDF ebooks, make marketing images, plus pricing, selling and advertising ideas. Cover illustrations are included as examples for creating your own.

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.

Note, 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.
