Writing a Book
Writing a book is another possible way to earn money online.
You don't have to be a writer. Anyone with information can write a book with a good editor and support team to help you self publish your own book.
It can be a real printed book or an ebook (one that is in PDF format and bought directly from your website.)
Steps to writing and self publishing your own book/ebook.
- Choose the topic of your book. What are you an expert on? What do you know a lot about that others want to know about too? What is the topic of your website?
- Create an outline of the possible chapters.
- Start writing. You can start by writing by hand if you want. That can be a good way for you to get ideas and get used to writing on the computer. if you are good on the computer, then start there. Just start writing in Word.
- Get feedback on your chapters as you go from friends and family (that are supportive but can give you honest feedback). My first ebook, I had one of my good friends edit the whole thing. I have to say the first time I saw all the red lines though, it was hard not to cry. (I might have even cried). A good editor will make you a good writer.
- Decide if you want to self publish a paperback, kindle or create an ebook where people can download it directly from your website. There are different things you need to do for each of these ways - from formating to pricing and marketing.
