Review: How To Write and Publish Your Own eBook in as little as 7 Days


How To Write and Publish Your Own eBook in as little as 7Days by Jim Edwards and Joe Vitale exe format, 208 pages

I was intrigued by the title of this book - writing aneBook in 7 days? But that's exactly what Jim Edwards andJoe Vitale show you how to do.

However, your eBook doesn't have to be 100 pages. In fact,Joe Vitale's best selling eBook 'Turbo Charge Your Writing'is only 22 pages (and 2 of those pages are order forms).And the authors give the example of someone who wrote abook just 7 pages long that sells for between $30 and $50.The fact is that people are swamped with information. Sothe shorter your book, the better.

Vitale and Edwards both have impressive track records inonline publishing. Joe Vitale (also known as 'Mr. Fire') issomething of a legend in the world of marketing. He haswritten over 12 successful books and has helped more than200 authors to write, publish and promote their books.

Jim Edwards writes a syndicated newspaper column called'NetReporter.com' and is a frequent guest speaker atnational conferences on topics such as search enginetraffic generation and 'shoestring' online marketing. He'salso the author of '33 Days To Online Profits' and 'TheLazy Man's Guide To Online Business'.

If you're like many aspiring authors, you may have the urgeto write your book first and then find out if there's amarket for it. But as Edwards and Vitale point out, that'sa formula for eBook failure.

In chapter 2 ('Setting Yourself Up for Success') theauthors show you how to identify your niche market, how toanalyze their wants, needs and problems, and how to write abook that satisfies those wants, needs and problems.

Don't skip this chapter - it provides very detailedtechniques for using keyword research to find out exactlywho your target audience is and where you will find them onthe Internet.

The chapter on 'Formatting Your eBook Text' contains somevaluable tips, such as breaking up your text with bulletsand headers. Your readers will thank you for it - one ofthe keys to avoiding credit card charge backs is to make iteasy for your readers to absorb your information.

Chapter 10 ('How To Make Money with your eBook') gives yousome tried and tested formulas for turning your eBook intoprofits, such as selling the reprint rights and 'backloading' your eBook with your own affiliate links, jointventures and affiliate programs.

The book also contains interviews with eight successfuleBook authors, including Yanik Silver, Rick Beneteau, andJay Conrad Levinson.

The interview with Yanik Silver is worth reading verycarefully. He reveals how he made tens of thousands ofdollars by setting up 3 separate profit streams in the sameeBook: reprint rights, his own affiliate links andcustomization fees.

Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche communities for adults with learning disabilities, living alongside those without them, has died aged 90.

In August 1964, having giving up his job teaching philosophy at the University of Toronto, he bought a small, rundown house without plumbing or electricity in the village of Trosly-Breuil, north of Paris, and invited two men with learning disabilities – Raphaël Simi and Philippe Seux – to share it with him. Both had been living in an asylum and were without family. Today L'Arche (the ark) has 150 communities, in 38 countries, supporting 3,500 people with learning disabilities.

Vanier wrote 30 books on spirituality and community, including Community and Growth (1979), Becoming Human (1998), Befriending the Stranger (2005) and Life's Great Questions (2015). In 2015 he was awarded the £1.1m Templeton prize, for making "an exceptional contribution to affirming life's spiritual dimension".

Baker & Taylor has made it official: it is leaving the wholesale retail book market. The move was hinted at when it became public late last year that the company was in talks to sell its retail operations to Ingram and then in the departure over the last few months of key retail staff members. B&T will focus on its traditional core business of servicing libraries, as well as publisher services...

Paul Swydan, owner of the Silver Unicorn Bookstore, West Acton, Mass., wrote on Twitter, "It means I will make less money when I fill special orders for customers, because Baker & Taylor's sole competition offers a much lower discount." He added, "In the larger sense, it's another example of how Amazon is crippling this country in their mostly unchecked quest to monopolize any business they choose to focus on."
