A Surprising Way to Write a Million Dollar E-BookWritten by Joe Vitale
Ever since Jim Edwards and I wrote our best-selling e-book, "How to Write and Publish Your Own OUTRAGEOUSLY Profitable e-Book --- in as little as 7 days!," people have written to us for advice on how to pick a good subject for their e-book. While we've addressed that question in our book and in other articles, last night I came across a surprising new way to help you pick a million-dollar winner.
Last night I was reading a wonderful old book on creativity. It's titled 'Direct Creativity' and written by Robert Crawford. It's dated and copies of it sell for a lot of money today but it still contains some pure gold. For example, this amazing insight from book lit up my brain cells:
"Most things you consider have several possibilities, not just one."
At first glance that tip might not mean anything to you. But imagine you're looking for a topic for your next e-book --- and you want to be sure it will be a winner. Crawford explained his principle this way:
"You are an author. You lack a good subject for a book. You have been reading 'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' But are there not other down-trodden people in world? There might be a story of a down-trodden Indian, or down-trodden African, or a down-trodden Eskimo, or a down-trodden Chinaman, or maybe a down-trodden white person in a northern city. Perhaps you choose story of an American Indian because you feel that you have a mission in world to improve his lot."
Do you see how this works? I love this insight into creativity. What it means for you and your next e-book is this:
Search online for best-selling books of a few decades ago or even of a century or two ago. Just as 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' was a classic and controversial book of 1800's, and one you could adapt into an original e-book of your own today, there are countless other once mega-hit books out there that time has forgotten. You can find such a book, model it, and write a new e-book based on its basic and already proven concept.
Ebooks, what are they?Written by Darrell Mutz
Ebooks are just like any other book, without paper. They help us in recycling. The more ebooks there are fewer trees we cut down. It seems we continually here of how bad our environment is. This is one step to doing something about it. You donít have wasted energy and pollutants of machinery to cut down trees and manufacturing plants. Go ahead and breath in that fresh air.
They also take up less space or should we say give us more space on our bookshelves! Think of books in your home, a friendís house, your parentís, etc. If you could take all of those books, put them in your computer wouldnít it be cool? Think of how many times you or someone you know says only if I had more shelf space or storage. Ebooks to rescue! Iím not saying throw out those old books or donít buy anymore new ones, Iím just saying if you could get what you want in an ebook what would it hurt?
Ebooks are for everyone. You can get sports ebooks, home business, cooking, fitness, business, marketing, how-tos, resource, society, culture and list goes on. Some are already in different languages. Ebooks are very affordable to. Some come with a feature to where you can upgrade them or get a new version for free. Have a hard time seeing, just enlarge text or zoom in. If you were a space alien there would be an ebook for you.
