Tips for eBook Writers

Whether this is your first eBook or your tenth eBook most eBook writers can benefit from these three key tips and most of us are not aware of these three key points. Are you ready?

#1 When You Edit Examine Widely

When you begin to edit your eBook have a broad mind not a narrow mind. If you are busy looking too narrowly you’ll catch the missing comma, but miss something really important. Focus on macro detail not micro detail. When you focus on micro details you are likely going to miss major issues within the book. For example, you’ll be worried about minor grammar errors when really you should be thinking about rearranging content or moving chapters around.

Before you start editing, you should read through the entire eBook. The best way to do this is actually on paper or in PDF format on your tablet. The goal here is to read it in a format that won’t be easy for you to make little changes. This will help you to focus on the ‘big picture.’ Any major changes you see needing to happen, you’ll have to make notes on and then go back after you have read it from cover to cover, and start to make those changes.

#2 Don’t Design Your Front Cover Yourself

It’s true – we do judge a book by its cover. It’s a huge mistake to try to throw together a cover yourself unless you have a background in graphic designs. If you don’t have the right skills then your cover is going to look unprofessional and amateur and this can put off readers. If you can afford to hire a design professional do so. This is good investment of your money. If you just can’t afford to hire someone to keep your design simple so that there is less worry of the cover being seen as inferior.

#3 Remember to Link Back to Your Blog

Your readers first contact with you might be your eBook. For example, they bought your eBook on Amazon. Readers can easily forget where they got a book they downloaded, especially if it was from a blog, which is why it is important to link your eBook back to your blog. This is a great way to increase subscriptions to your main email list or you can even create a separate list that will tell current eBook readers when your next book comes out and what it will be about. It’s simple to do – just add a link at the back of your eBook. That’s it – takes only a minute or two to add.

Now that you have these three key tips keep them in mind when you are writing your eBook.
