If you wish to publish and sell it on Amazon it has to be 6,000- 7,000 words but I would think that an ideal Amazon e-book is something like 10,000 pages. Usually, they will first give out your e-book "free" as promo, but don't worry, if it catches good reviews, they sell it later for about 2-6 dollars. In fact, once I bought an ebook on the simple topic of Secrets of planting tomatoes.
I have not yet written an ebook, but I have bought several and it depends on the topic and genre. If it is a how-to book, as a reader I want it to be as succinct as possible. If it is novel, it just has to keep me engaged. I am all for publishing using ebooks because they save resources and space. If it is long, I will still read it as long as I continue to want to turn the page.

I am struggling with learning about ebook formatting and am wondering, if you have published an ebook, exactly how you format your work. What fonts, allignment, etc. do you use or does it matter? Help and advice will be appreciated.

How long should proofreading and editing take?A good novel can take years to write! I have heard that when an author has finished writing - it could take twice as long, time wise, to proofread and edit the book properly and that even then the final proof needs re-checking before it gets...
