How to write your ebook:
The first step to epublishing is writing your ebook. Perfecting your ebook needs you to write 3 drafts:
The vomit draft- it won’t be the most warming image, because it’s basically writing as if you’re throwing up on an empty page. Initially, you’ll be writing the “Table of Contents”, trying out the chapters, scenes and stories without making everything look pretty yet.
In the review draft you develop the style and tone of your book. Get feedback from your friends and colleagues.
In your editorial draft, ask help from a close friend or professional who is an expert in grammar, style and story structure.
Format your ebook for Kindle– you can DIY using the Calibre program or hire a freelancer to do it. Outsourcing is a practical idea, too. If your ebook is your life’s work, it’s worth it to pay a few hundred dollars for outsourcing to get it done right. Epublishing is the most daunting part. Kindle has a self-publish feature but would you risk producing a bland and amateur-looking ebook? Book lovers literally judge a book by its cover. Don’t hesitate to outsource your ebook design and conversion and you’ll realize it was the best decision you ever made.
Promoting and launching your ebook:
Tell the world what your book is about. How else would people know and decide to buy it? Before releasing your ebook tell your family, friends and followers to leave reviews. Ask early readers to do the same. After collecting some reviews, launch your ebook. There are several ways to do it. You can send emails to your friends, relatives and blog subscribers, offer incentives to buyers or promote your book through word-of-mouth or social media.
