    I have a few ideas that I would like to put into an ebook or two, but not really sure how to go about it.  First how to get it online and second once it's out there how to advertise it. Or is publishing it the old fashion way better in the long run?  Any help would be appreciated.

      Here is a link to a great book on how to create an ebook. I used it and have had good response from people reading it. It cost $37 but it was well worth it. Look at the link and it explains everything it teaches you.

    I've just put a new hub up about this so you might want to take a look. I hope you'll find it helpful.

    Not sure I can post a link here, but if you check out my profile you'll find it easy enough, it's titled "Creating Your First Ebook" and deals with the whole process from start to finish including promotion, marketing and selling.

    Also, check and see what they have to offer. If you do all your own work it doesen't cost anything, they work on a royalty basis.
