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

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.

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.
