For example, John Bear wrote a book called 'The #1 New York Times Best-Seller.' It was a reference book consisting of facts about 484 books that had been New York Times best-sellers (up to 1992, when book was published). You could flip through it, look for a book that was successful decades ago, and then write an e-book based on nature of best-selling book. The chances are extremely high that your new e-book would be a success, too.
Why is this so? The truth is, there are only a finite number of topics available to us as authors. I once read that there are only 36 possible plot situations. You can have millions of novels and screenplays written, but only out of those 36 plots. (See 'The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations' by Georges Polti.) The same holds true for nonfiction. The key is to find a winner from past and update it with your own style and your own message for today.
Of course, you still have to write a good book. That's where e-book Jim and I wrote can help you, too. But for a creative way to determine your next e-book, this brilliant method is priceless.
In short: Do a little research, find a successful book of past, and model it to write a winner of your own today.
