Why Write eBooks?

Aug 17, 2007
The Internet is such a powerful tool and there is so much information about nowadays. As an author this is a double-edged sword. With so much freely available information, why should I write eBooks? Surely everything that can be said has already been said!

Well, it's just not true. If you look around you everything is changing. Just watch or read the news and you'll see technology changes, ideas change and the attitudes and beliefs of entire countries change every single day.

As an author, or even an aspiring author, the truth is that this is probably the best time to write an eBook and use all that Internet technology to your advantage. You see, what publishers need is authors with a fresh outlook who can see problems in the perspective of the world as it is today - not the same old information thrown up again as it has already been done a thousand times before.

That means if you're an original thinker who can bring new suggestions or even solutions to old problems your talents will be highly sought after.

eBooks are not knew, but they are easy to write (if you know what you are talking about) and can be published much quicker than conventional print books. It only takes a few seconds to make an eBook whereas it can take days to produce a printed version.

You also have to consider that with computers and access to the Internet becoming cheaper and cheaper there are new people coming online every day. Each one of those new Internet users is a potential reader of your eBook.

So, if you combine your talents in writing with your original ideas then you could be passing the very information to millions of people who have been struggling to understand what seems like a simple topic to you.

You always have to remember that what seems like day-to-day information to you could be the very piece of knowledge or new insight that hundreds, if not thousands of people have been looking for.

OK. Let's break it down for you. Let's say you have a particular niche area of knowledge and a revolutionary idea or concept related to that niche. Assuming you have the research or background to support it you will be able to write a first-rate and fresh eBook. Something new - not the same old information regurgitated as others do time and time again. But where do you start?

I can imagine it now. You're sitting in front of your computer staring at the same email, article or even blank screen that you were two hours ago. You say to yourself "Why write eBooks when I have no idea of how to get it published. And even if I did it's so difficult to get anything published by the conventional publishing houses these days?

Well, it's simple. Publishing an eBook is entirely different to publishing in print. In fact, you can do it yourself with free software. OK, the final product might not be as great as one published with software you need to pay for but with a half-decent word processor and the ability to create PDF files you could be a digital publisher in minutes.
