I really wanted to make this post as a separate, one from the previous overview that i gave, as this would be the result of the momentum we created so far for eBook creation.
- Who should make an eBook?
- Why to make an eBook
- Creating an online ebook form / Customization
- Applying the form to the Blogger Blog
- Building Download system with email subscription / Thanks page
What program is best suited for an eBook writing?
Write out your basic backbone content first. No need to add pictures and stuff. Just build text content. Once that done, you could decorate it with relevant pictures. As what i do with the blog post. I work out the post content, and then finally make it wear some nice clothes.
How should you start?This is often the biggest hindrance one could face while writing any content. But i believe its very easy when you know something to write upon. If you have to summarize your last Christmas or your birthday, you wont take minute to start writing what you experienced.
That is that your mind should be a head of your fingers typing. Say if you need to build an overview, you could surely start with it. Its often a good practice by first making out the table of contents (though you could workout minor changes later if needed) which would direct you towards your end goal with the eBook.
Don't make it formal. Use simple language and present the content like you're talking to your buddy. I take this post as a conversation between you and me. It then gets easy to then put things together.
Use more and more bullet points, numeric numbering etc. Make sure each paragraph is not more than 4-5 lines. It helps to hover over the content easily. Also convey your message in a mixture of long and short sentences. It really works. (see what i did there?)
Give it a proper clothing
Make sure that you give out a keynote at the end. Summarize the entire content at the end of the eBook and tell readers what they got from the post. Like from today's post, you got an idea of what program we could use for an eBook writing, how to better format our content, clothing etc.
The reader should not be confused at the end. Thats the purpose. Make him know what he had to get from the eBook. Otherwise tell him that he's a dumb (not really!)
Use of Font?
12-13 is really recommend from many successful eBook publishers. Don't use fancy fonts. Please. And always use black color for the content. To summarize, let it be universal and not just create a new theme that would not be appreciated at all. Though as i mentioned before, you could use 2 different decent colors for headings.
So yeh thats enough for today's post. I hope it would be easy to work out on your eBook content from now on.
So.. now whats stopping you?
Thanks for reading guys. Take care.
