    How to Write an Ebook
  • Although you may be chomping at the bit to get started writing your ebook, first you need to do your research. Determine the subject matter of your book and find out whether this is information that is in demand. One way you can do this is to search for groups or forums that focus on the subject matter about which you want to write.
  • Once you've determined that your book has a market, find out what people most want to know about your subject. For instance, if your ebook is about finding a home for aging parents, discover what your readers are most concerned about. Are they scared their parent might be neglected or abused? Will they be crushed by guilt at the prospect of sending a beloved parent to a home? Are they concerned about their ability to foot the bill? In your ebook, you'll want to make sure to address the reader's concerns.
  • Create an outline. Make sure it addresses all concerns and problems listed above. Flesh it out and begin to write your book. After you have completed your first draft, edit, polish, and rewrite until it shines.
