Why People Find It Hard To Be An eBook Writer?

Friday 6 December 2013 @ 12:38 pm

After seeing the rise in sales of eBooks many people who are already writer or blogger or none or both decide to be an electronic book writer. But most of those failed to get glory what they were expecting. There are many reasons behind this failure. And good news is most of those are easy to overcome. Many people are still dreaming to be writer of eBooks but the real questions is why just dreaming; they have to come one step further and write.

As being said earlier, there are some reasons of this failure.

  • People think that eBooks are same as paper books. In case of contents, YES, you can write same things or ideas on paper as well as in an eBook. But in case of format, NO,
  • There is a huge gap between being a traditional writer to eBook writer. Someone cannot do this except he/she is willing to do this.
  • While writing a paper book, a writer must only think about the purity of contents, original ideas and grabbing people attention. But a writer of ebook has to deal with variety of things to create a successful product.
  • It is a general opinion of experienced writers that the most difficult part is to choose an impressive title. Many publishing market encourage writers to give importance to their titles. Because this is the second thing (we will talk about first thing later) a potential user notices before buying or downloading the book.
  • Cover of the book is more important thing in the sale of a book or eBook. And this rule applies to other products too. Haven’t you noticed that a product with good packing, impressive colors and texture sells more than a product which lacks this quality?

Practice Makes a Man Perfect

This is a universal truth that practice makes a man (and woman too) perfect. So, if you have encountered a failure, don’t be disappoint and keep writing and publishing your books, but most important part is to never repeat the same mistakes again and again. Otherwise, eBook writing is a good career if you have writing skills.

The next step would be to create an outline for your eBook. You need to list all the subjects that you will touch on, or jot down all the chapters that will be contained in your eBook. Doing this will avoid any disorganization that you may experience. When you are making your outline, give yourself a few weeks so that you can make it as comprehensive as possible. A comprehensive outline will aid in preventing writer’s block down the line as you will have a basic overview of how every chapter of your eBook should read like.

The next thing would be to trawl the internet of any sites that may have valuable information pertaining to your topic. This should be done as research for your book and not be taken as an opportunity to plagiarize other people’s work. If you come across information that you would like your readers to read more on, you can always post the links at the end of your eBook.

Lastly, you do not have to buy expensive software to eBook writing. You can use whatever program that you have in your computer as long as at the end of it all you can convert your eBook to a PDF file. This makes it easier for your eBook to be downloaded.
