The main facets that a writer should consider while creating an ebook

By Andrea Burke

Do you feel excited about writing, and that is your daily inspiration? Then you should try and write an ebook! It takes time and preparation, so in order to be prepared, here are some tricks that you should consider before writing a masterpiece that will wow every reader.

1. Set Wise Goals

Before starting any content creation think over the main facets: your audience, to whom you are going to address your message and the topic you are going to write about, their interests and feelings, things they already know, and things they are going to learn about soon. You should analyze the niche and find the tricks that work and have an impact on readers so that the books become best-sellers. Keep in mind that ebooks can be short, so to write a meaningful book is easy.

2. Be Socially Active

Socialize with your readers. Choose one social platform and post some passages, ask your readers’ opinions, and get feedback. Be ready to embrace any critics as it may be a driving force to improve your work. Having your own blog will help boost your book’s popularity, and enhance chances of credibility.

3. Refer to Ebook Standards

Formatting is a big deal. Make sure to have a Table of Contents. Separate every chapter by a page break. Headers and footers are irrelevant here, so it is better to use one standard Kindle font.

4. Check Content

While writing a book, you may probably have some ideas that are essential, so it is better to note them down and use great resources like MindMeister or Scribus, an application designed for typesetting and professional files preparation. Avoid any plagiarized parts in your work by using a free plagiarism checker. With Unplag you may define self-plagiarism or find out whether your work was plagiarized by someone else.

5. Provide Details

A detailed description is eye-catching, so the more details of places or characters you have, the more engaged your readers will be. Make your story full of bright characters, emotions, and use simple language at the same time. Do not forget about the headline that should convey surprise, happiness, or intrigue.

6. Keep Your Subscribers Aware

Share the draft of your book with the readers you may find on social networking sites, and keep communicating with them by asking them to add any comments. Soon when your masterpiece is ready, share it with your readers for free and track the number of active readers downloading it.

7. Share Your Book

Suggest to your first readers in a polite manner that they share your book, in case they liked it. Write a short teaser of your book, and make a landing page. Share your book with all your close friends via email, and do not forget to have your own page on Facebook. While sharing your book, include a short introduction, like a short personal message.


Writing an ebook is not as complicated as it may seem; an author should be aware of the eye-catching details, special issues, and resources that will make any writing look professional and genuine. Remember to communicate with your readers and consider their opinions, so that a story could be interesting for a certain audience reader. Do not forget that the way you convey your thoughts is vital, so enrich your story with a chain of events that will instantly involve a reader.
