  • Use Indents instead of tabs and spacing. To do this in MS Word 2007, go to Home>>Paragraph and then increase or decrease indents.
  • It is very important to use Page Break after each Chapter. If you don’t use it, the device or application cannot distinguish between two different pages, and as a result the words of different chapter will be mixed. To do this in MS Word 2007, go to Insert>>Pages and then page break. Or you can simple press Ctrl + Enter after Chapter.
  • Do not use Header or Footer in eBook formats. They might be good for a word or pdf file but not very supporting in eBooks.
  • It is highly recommended not to Copy Paste images in ebooks, for that purpose go to Insert>>Illustrations and then select Picture and then choose your image to insert it in document.

When you start to think about writing books, you probably think about the printed book. But, as the world continues to move forward with technological advancements, we are seeing more and more of our media and entertainment move from print to digital format. This of course also includes books, in the form of an Ebook. So, when you stop to think about Ebooks, you are then going to start wondering who can be an Ebook writer. Well, anyone can be, that is to say, anyone with the drive to become an author. However, writing isn’t the end all of writing these technology laced novels. As an Ebook writer, it is your job to stay on top of the popular genres of the written word; either watching the download rates or reading up on top-sellers can do this.

So, when you think Ebook, you should think of it as writing a story for publication, all without having to go to a publisher for printing. Instead, they will format your book into a special format so that the readers can process it. This is what your readers will download from one of many websites that are now available to deal in Ebook reading materials. One thing to keep in mind is that just like any other form of entertainment, if it isn’t entertaining, your readers aren’t going to be willing to spend money on it and any future books that you may have published in digital format.
