Ebook Ideas - Some Suggestions

Updated on December 4, 2012

Easy Ideas For Your Ebook

Being a published author is often seen as a badge of distinction. Writing your own ebook, however, is not all that difficult. You might find this hard to believe, but it's true.

For one thing, ebooks tend not to be as long as physical printed books. Thirty pages is not an uncommon length for an ebook. For another thing, getting your e book circulated today is a lot easier than in the old days of having to find a publisher.

However, you may see coming up with a topic for your ebook as your biggest challenge. Do not let this deter you; just think about some of the things you already do. If any of them are things that others might be interested in, you have a potential topic for your ebook.

5 Popular Ebook Ideas

Vacations

If you enjoy going on vacations, this can be a great topic for an ebook. Undoubtedly, there were things that you wish you had known ahead of time. Others are likely to feel the same way.

You can make your ebook more targeted (which means less competition) by writing about a specific vacation destination. Much hotels were along your route? Which did you stay at? What restaurants would you recommend along the route, and which would you avoid?

Cover some of the must-see destinations along your route as well as others that the reader can pass up. This could be a boon for those planning a similar trip. Also be sure to recommend any inexpensive travel packages you may know about.

If you carry your iPad with you on vacation, you can easily use it to compose your ebook while on the go. This means that you will be writing about your vacation while you are still experiencing it and while it is fresh in your mind. By the time you get home, your ebook may already be nearly finished!

Real Estate

If you know something about selling a house or of the various types of mortgages, why not share your knowledge in a book? Write about things that the reader can do to sell their home faster as well as things to avoid.

Your ebook could be targeted to a specific area. Perhaps you know of a good realtor in your region, or a neighborhood with top-notch schools that is great for families. A lot of people like to do research before moving to a new area.

Children's Birthday Parties

Anyone with children has likely planned out birthday parties, and parents are always looking for ideas. Why not share some of these in your own ebook?

If you know some good party games or good places at which to buy party supplies, these could be good topics for your ebook.

Perhaps you know of an inexpensive but great place for a child's birthday party, or you have some tips on hiring a birthday party clown or magician. Perhaps you had a great theme party such as a princess party for your child's last birthday.

There are a lot of topics you can cover here, from cake to goodie bags.

Homemade Gift Ideas

Are you a crafter? Do you make your own gifts? Homemade gift ideas could be a great topic for any book.

You could share your recipe for gifts in a jar or directions on making a no-sew blanket. Whatever crafts you make, there are certain to be others who would like to know how to do it as well. Don't forget to cover how to package your gift.

Cleaning Tips

Home cleaning is a necessary chore. Why not share some of your time-saving cleaning tips to make the job a little easier?

Perhaps you could share your own all-natural recipes for cleaning products. How about tips on how to clean up quickly when company arrives or how to get kids to clean their rooms? Any tips you could share for making the process easier are sure to be appreciated.

      @Loretta L: It's not that hard! You just have to know the rules and procedures of the venue where your ebook will be sold e.g Amazon vs. selling it yourself.

      Sweet Lens. I'm very passionate in creating your own info product. I've taken classes on it, learned how to promote them and had a lot of fun doing it. It's a lot easier to understand how the internet works after you've launched your first one. Props on the nice lens topic!
