PR Log - Mar 04, 2012 - The popularity of Amazon's Kindle means that ebooks have become hot opportunities for writers. Writing at book length isn't easy, however. Angela Booth has created five tips which will help.
1. Write the sales page (advertisement) for the ebook first.
This compels the writer to write for a specific market. When he forces himself to consider his readers before he writes his book, whether that book is fiction or nonfiction, the writer's ebook stands a better chance of being read.
2. Find readers' hot buttons -- what they respond to -- by looking at what's selling already. When a writer understands what his readers will respond to, he can write with confidence.
Again, it's important that a writer does this before he writes a word of his ebook.
3. End procrastination by separating writing from editing. The writing comes first, editing is done once the ebook is complete.
Writers who try to edit while writing either procrastinate, or get blocked. This leads to wasted time. It may even mean that a writer gives up on an ebook completely.
4. Prepare the ebook's audience while writing an ebook. Writers with a platform (an audience), sell more ebooks. As more ebooks are published, readers choose ebooks by author name recognition.
5. Prepare the next ebook while writing the first one.
Amazon's Kindle book store is an enormous marketplace. Authors have found that the more ebooks they have on Amazon's virtual shelves, the more they sell.
Amazon also helps writers to sell more by funneling buyers through the marketplace with further options, with sections like "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought". Obviously the more ebooks a writer has available, the more his older titles promote his new ebooks.
She says: "New writers have told me that they're gained confidence by having a step by step program to follow. Established writers are writing more ebooks; their sales are increasing too."
