Select a suitable topic for your eBook. The topic should be both catchy and witty so that it can grasp the attention of your potential readers. Not only should the topic be fun, be it should relay to the reader exactly what your eBook is about so that they are not confused. The most popular eBooks tend to be those that are “how to” guides for readers. You are not limited to writing just about that though. Ultimately it is your own eBook so you can choose whatever topic you see fit.

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.
