All About That eBook Life

If you have tried over and over to get your book published only to have been met with rejection letter after rejection letter, your first impulse may be to give up. But hold your horses! If you do believe that you have a good book on your hands, you may want to consider transforming your book into an eBook.

As nice as it is to hear that you can take your book, transform it into an eBook, and sell it, you may be curious as to why you should do so, as well as how. The good news is that creating an eBook is a lot easier than many imagine. In fact, the hardest part of creating an eBook is writing one.

As for the benefits of creating an ebook, it is first important to know what they are. Ebooks are defined as electronic or digital books. The materials and stories covered in ebooks are just like printed books; however, the overall format is different.

The main benefit of transforming your book into an eBook is that the process is easy. In fact, many first time authors are surprised just how easy it is. Although you do have a number of different formatting options, many choose the popular PDF format, as most computers already have free reader programs installed.

As easy as it is to create an eBook, selling it can be more difficult. The good news, however, is that you do have a number of different options. One of those options is to sell your eBook on a third-party website. The downside to this approach is that most third-party websites take a small percentage of each sale or charge a monthly fee.

If you want to avoid some of the costs, you also have the option of creating your own website. Many authors create a landing page that offers detailed information about the book, including the title, synopsis, and author bio. While this approach is the most cost-effective, it is important to remember that traffic won’t just stumble onto your website; you also need to market it as well. 

As for accepting payment, many create product links using platforms like PayPal or Stripe. This allows you to accept payments from major credit card holders as well.

Transforming your manuscript into an eBook and selling it online is a nice alternative to print publishing and self-publishing. If you are unsure of exactly what to do, click that link and schedule a consultation. I’d love to help you get started.
