    Question Anyone ever published an e-book?

    I'm wondering what's involved in getting information up on-line as an e-book. Any links or information out there?

    Look at the articles on fonerbooks.com. I found them helpful.

    The Smart Passive Income Blog (you can google it - not my blog btw) offers a free ebook on creating an ebook. The link to it is on the right on the homepage. I read through it and it seems to be pretty comprehensive. I haven't written an ebook yet, but it's in my plans eventually.

    Good luck!

    Barnes and Noble and Amazon both allow you to self-publish your e books and sell then on their sites. I have no idea what's involved but there's info on their sites.

    The problem with e books isn't getting them published, it's marketing. If you can't figure out how to let people know your book is for sale, you can't sell it.

    What type of book is it?

    Thanks SD and GreenWays. I haven't decided what to write on yet SD. I could do frugal living or homeschooling, or a number of things. I am debating breaking information down into a number of small books for less money for people, rather than a couple of big ones. Might make it easier for people to purchase and read.

    I'm working through the smart passive income site right now. Lots of good information there. I gather the key is marketing.

    If you want to gain more readers, I suggest having a free book or mini book. I know I have found a couple awesome fiction writers. I read the first of the series for free and then couldn't wait to read the rest so went right on amazon and bough the other ones.
