I'm thinking about it, but have no idea where to begin (besides the writing of it, of course), or whether it would even be worthwhile.
Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with this and can possibly offer any advice...
I've written some eBooks, they're going on the market in 2010. But it really depends on what genre you're aiming for and then deciding what eBook publishing company you're going to go through
Yep. Wanna buy it?
Just kidding. I have written several but haven't posted them anywhere yet. I've got some good directions somewhere on the hows and what people are looking for. I'll shoot it to you if I can find it again.
For what purpose are you looking to create one? To make money or for simple act of creating one?
Yes, my daughter has written a very successful Ebook.
The marketing is everything!
If you read this hub it will show you how she did it.
I hope this helps, and feel free to ask any questions.
Thanks Earnest! I'll check it out now...nice to hear from you!
You are most welcome Lily! If you decide to have a go, it will help if you read a couple of my other hubs on some of the tricks in the trade, like buying bandwidth and setting up auto responders and shopping carts. I do not want to list them here, but they are all in the one category, so you should be able to find them.
I believe that nothing will get an ebook off the ground except adwords by the way, and this is a real art form that you will need to learn while being careful with your advertising spend with google AdWords as you learn.
The absolute Guru of AdWords on the Internet is Perry Marshal, someone I do not like much, but he is the man, and reading his stuff is a good start.
I wish I could say it is easy.
Thanks for all the great information, Earnest. I will start reading, but it sounds like it may be a slow process with a lot to learn before I take the plunge! We'll see...
Don't clickbank supply a lot of help setting up ebooks?
Yes, and somehow it is now used a lot by an organization called NORML..
It is a book about Medicinal Usage and Herbalism
...and this is all I will say about this
It really all depends on how fancy you want to get when you begin to market the ebook. If it's just an info type of ebook then I would suggest a couple hubs on the subject with links pointing to your own landing page where people can purchase and download a copy. Do a google search for "ebook marketing" and you'll find tons of help.
Another great way to go is use Lulu.com you can upload and sell it right from their website.
I revised and then turned my book into an ebook. I was able to turn my MS Files RTF and then upload them to Kindle and Smashwords.
I have written a few eBooks. it’s quite simple
Save it as pdf
Create a nice sales page and post it online
Well that is the basics of it
where do you post it? does it cost anything? i have like 50 or so books and stories just milling around because i don't have the time or energy to manuscript-format them, research and write letters, etc.
There are a few options for you
1 You can sell it on websites like payloadz.com its free to start off
2 get a free or paid hosting create and upload your sales pages and product and promote it
3) get other people to promote it for you via paydotcom.com clickbank.com or click2sell.eu(this one is free and I found it quite good)
Writing it's the easiest part! Marketing it is the hard part. I've written a few, but not marketed them well - something to add to my "to do" list for 2010 I guess!
Great information everyone. Thank you for sharing because I am been wondering about it too.
Two of my books are scheduled to be out in July 2010 I know someone who can assist you and get you going, I also have a contract with a publishing company because of him, you can e-mail me if you have any questions.
I would love to talk with you about this. I have a literary agent that is working a little harder now that I have been breathing down his throat...but it all seems to be moving slowly.

I am curious what kind of experience e-book authors have had. I am at a crossroads right now and am trying to make some decisions about where to focus my writing. I could focus more on HP or I could do the e-book gig and see what happens. What kind of experiences have people had...

I recently wrote an eBook on stress relief and am selling it on Amazon Kindle. Yesterday I published my first hub (about stress) and would like to promote my eBook. Is it best to link to my eBook via an Amazon capsule or via a text link in the hub? I have an Amazon Associate ID which I have...
