How to Write an eBook

Updated July 12, 2018

Ebook writers often choose to write their own ebooks in order to have a product bring in a steady income with no further writing work required. After the ebook is written, all there is to do is market it and wait for the money to roll in.

Research the category that the book will be written about. Choose an angle for the ebook that has not already been saturated with ebooks and reports. Write your own ebook about a subject that you already know a lot about, to give it an air of expertise.

Come up with a catchy title. The title should tell buyers what information is included in the ebook, as well as what the ebook can do for them.

Write a short introduction that describes the contents. Write a table of contents if the ebook is very long, though it's not necessary for shorter works.

Write the ebook, tailoring it to the audience you expect to be interested in it. Use simple language to appeal to a wide range of people. Add personal anecdotes pertaining to the subject matter to give it a more personal feel.

Edit the ebook carefully. Make sure that sentences and paragraphs flow well and sound professional. Use MS Word or another word-processing program to write the ebook, and correct any spelling or verb tense errors caught by the software.


Write in a font larger than standard 12 point Times New Roman. A larger and more prominent font can make the ebook much easier to read. If you have trouble with editing your ebook, hire a freelance editor to look over the text for you.
