What is an e-book?

An e-book is simply a digital file that contains content that entertains,
enlightens or inspires your reader.
It can be 5 pages long or 2500 pages long. It can be a complete book that
uses all of the old fashioned elements of book publishing or an E-book can
be a truly creative piece of work.
An e-book could be a speech, a series of speeches, a poem, a series of
poems, recipes or series of recipes and "how to instructions. E-books can
also be short stories like Stephen King's "Riding the Bullet."
E-books can contain sound, video and animation or they can resemble a
typical paperback book.
Look up on Amazon.com and check out the top 100 books and see if you can
tie in your e-book to a topic area of one of the bestsellers.
Write it just like you would write a letter. You do not need any special
formatting.

2. Save your e-book as in Microsoft word as a doc. File...text file...and
html file

3. Set up an account with Infopost.com. They will host your file and give
you a free website page to include your description, reviews, pricing and
any other information. Infopost.com is located at:
http://www.infopost.com
Infopost will also do the credit card processing and allow you to post
sample chapters or excerpts of your e-books.

4. Follow the directions on listing your e-book, including the description,
sample chapter and then up-load your e-book to Infopost.com

5. Copy and paste the URL of your e-book to your e-mail signature and
register the URL with all of the major search engines and directories.
http://www.searchenginewatch.com
http://www.jimtools.com

Now you are a full-fledged e-book author. You will be selling your e-books
within a few minutes of completing the process.
I wish you success!
