Thousands of people want to be authors. They want to have written a book but don’t really want to put the work into it. Many times the mantra is that they would love to write a book but don’t have the time too. In fact, they don’t have the time to read much either, and as is often the case, writing instructors and authors themselves will tell an individual that you don’t have any business writing a book if you don’t have the time to even read.
That may be true of writing a book in the traditional sense, but not with writing ebooks. Writing an ebook can be a great way to break into the book writing business. There are differences between writing a novel for print and an ebook which will be explained shortly. Just know that if you are thinking about writing a book and want to make money from it fast, you should consider writing an ebook.
The differences between print books and ebooks are bountiful and minimal at the same time, which means that it’s more of what you want to do that dictates the final product than what any set guidelines may be.
With an ebook you don’t have to have a certain amount of pages. Quite often, in a non-fiction sense, many ebooks can be about twenty pages long and sell for twenty five to fifty dollars. The key here is that when you write a non-fiction ebook it is all about the information. If the information is in great demand you can charge more for it. No one is going to dictate to you how much you should charge for your ebook either, except for the market itself.
Next, with an ebook, all you need is a small website for people to purchase and then download your book and the transaction is over. There is no need to trudge through years of finding an agent and then a publisher, who may want you to rewrite whole slews of your work, and then have the book go to the bookstores and wait for someone to buy it. People can go directly to you for the book. It’s fast, inexpensive, and can bring in thousands of dollars with just one book. For some this is a full time job!
