Using iBooks Author to Write Your First Digital Book

ibooks and ebooksFor those of you who love to write and dream of publishing a printed book or a digital ebook then we’ve got some advice for you.  When do you plan to write your book? I ask you, what’s wrong with starting today?

Writing an eBook has never been easier, in fact Apple makes it easy by giving you free iBooks Author software to make publishing and creation much easier to sale your digital book for the iPad. Face it, most bloggers love to write and dream of having a wider readership. We also found an iPad app called Book Creator for iPad that you can download here.

So no more excuses from any of us about writing and getting published. Here’s extra motivation to get started on writing your ebook or starting a blog:

1. People are buying print books.

Despite all the negative news about major news print going under , the book industry is still in the black. There’s just something about holding and reading a printed book that the iPad can’t fully replicate. Sure, eBooks publishing is popular but print books are here and still in demand.

And if people are still buying books that means publishers are still looking for the next great writer. Could that be you?

2. Self Limiting Beliefs Hold You Back

Learn what you need to know about crafting a fantastic book proposal. Then put in the due diligence to refine it as well as your book idea before you send it off to any agents.

If you wonder why there are so many rejection letters sent out each day, it’s because most people skip these crucial first steps. Put in the time and care on your proposal, and you will already be ahead of the game.
