Have you always dreamed of writing a bestseller? Do you have ideas that could change the world - if only a publisher could look past your grammar mistakes? In this section, Money Source will show you how you can write a book, even if you can't actually write. We'll show you how you can get your book out into your readers' hands without dealing with those pesky publishers and how you can make passive income from your writing.
Paperbacks have taken a backseat with the invention of ebooks (electronic books). Ebooks can be read on the computer or laptop, ebook readers and other mobile devices. Various formats are available to suit the technology and operating system of the type of reader it will be read on, such as PDF, mobi, ePub and many more.
PDF is the most popular format that can be opened on most platforms and the software can be downloaded for free.
While many people still prefer reading printed books, there is a definite shift towards ebooks and business people across the globe are reaping the rewards of publishing their wisdom electronically.
Out of the hundreds of thousands of books written every year, a miniscule percentage are accepted by publishers - not because they are not good enough, but simply due to the sheer number of them. The writers who don't get deals, turn to affordable self-publishing, and ebook publishing options instead.
As such, there is a deluge of ebook publishers and online bookstores that are growing exponentially, making excellent books available to readers.
While some people still prefer printed books, ebooks enable people on-the-go to read books on their mobile devices. Many schools now make use of ereaders, and many tech-savvy business people read ebooks too. Those are two of the best readership categories to influence through your writing, to inspire change and create long-term readers waiting to buy your next book.
How can you Make Money with an Ebook?
The internet makes all the tools available for your book to be read by your target audience. You can electronically publish your book at little to zero financial outlay and start promoting it online in no time, reaping profits and growing a great readership. In fact, in the first quarter of 2012, ebooks outsold physical books for the first time (that's not counting the ebooks that don't have ISBNs).
Whether you want to create the book by yourself or make use of an e-publisher, MoneySource will show you how.
