YES - YOU CAN WRITE AN EBOOK!

Everyone who buys or sells on eBay has valuable information to share with their friends, customers, or other hobbyists.

Think about these example:

Do you buy and sell postcards? If you do, you already have a wealth of knowledge about period art and graphics, stamps, geography - as well as what makes a postcard special. Maybe you just want to share your personal favorites or maybe you want to help new collectors separate the really valuable pieces from the dross.

An ebook is the perfect platform.

Are you a skilled woodworker? You might want to sell detailed plans for making a workbench or an Adirondack chair. An ebook is the perfect way to bring together the written instructions with photographs of finished pieces and detailed drawings showing step by step directions. You could even add links to web sites that supply the tools and materials you recommend (and that can certainly be your own web site).

An ebook is the perfect way to communicate.

Does your business have a printed catalog? Many product catalogs are printed in black and white on inexpensive paper and popped into a three ring binder. If that's your catalog,  you probably wish you could afford to have it printed on an offset press, with full color, on tabloid size glossy paper. But such printing can be so expensive that a small business cannot afford to give the catalogs away! An ebook is the perfect solution.

An ebook is the perfect marketing tool.

If you have information you want to convey - ebooks made in PDF format offer a convenient way to share text, graphics, and pictures in a format that is already familiar to computer user.

EBOOKS ARE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL TOOLS AVAILABLE TO ONLINE SELLERS

Unfortunately, most ebook authors do not take advantage of the potential built into every ebook. In the average ebook, the text and layout are humdrum.

Bad formatting can make even the most exciting ebook look like an unwelcome business letter.

You do not need to spend thousands of dollars on software to create an ebook that looks like a million bucks!  Elegant Ebooks will teach you how to use the tools you already have to create stunning, visually exciting, ebooks.

All that you need is a word processor and a PDF maker. If you don't have a copy of Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat, Elegant Ebooks will tell you how to find free or low cost alternatives that work every bit as well. And it will help you choose the one that best meets your needs.

BEST OF ALL, ELEGANT EBOOKS WILL TAKE YOU, STEP BY STEP, THROUGH THE DESIGN DECISIONS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR EBOOK MEMORABLE.

Chapter Two - Layout and Design, the heart of the book, explains font selection, paragraph spacing, page layout, Drop Caps, graphic placement, Pull Quotes, text boxes, and more in plain, non-technical, jargon free English.

You will learn the best way to design for your target audience.

GET YOUR MESSAGE READ BY MILLIONS WITHOUT SPENDING A PENNY

Elegant Ebooks discusses strategies for ebook distribution.

If you've written a good ebook, packed full of useful information, wrapped in a beautiful package, it will be the most successful advertisement you've ever run. And it won't cost you one cent!

Digital downloads can be reproduced endlessly, shared by email, posted on blogs and web sites the world over - and all you have to do is create the one, original file with the tools you already have. The best distribution network in the world - readers who love your ebook - will spread the word and do the rest.

What about copy protection? What about piracy? What about selling my ebook??? Sure - you can do that. But what you gain in revenue may never make up for what you lose in readership, goodwill, and advertising. Elegant Ebooks explains the value of a Creative Commons Share and Share Alike license that will encourage your readers to pass the ebook on to others until you reach tens of thousands of readers.

WHY WAIT? DON'T SEND OUT ANOTHER HO-HUM EBOOK! LEARN THE DESIGN RULES AND TECHNIQUES USED BY PROFESSIONALS.

ELEGANT EBOOKS IS WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED WITH WINDOWS USERS IN MIND

Elegant Ebooks is designed for users of Microsoft Windows.

The examples, illustrations, and instructions in the book are drawn from Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat, with an overview of other PDF creation programs as well.

However, whether you use Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, Word Perfect, or some other word processing program, the techniques and tips in Elegant Ebooks will help you produce better, more professional ebooks.

Sorry Mac users - we do not have a Mac version available at this time, although we hope to make one available in the future.

CHOOSE THE EDITION THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU!

Elegant Ebooks comes in two editions, so that everyone can find the help they need.

Because Microsoft Word 2007 is so different from previous editions, we've created a special Word 2007 Edition of Elegant Ebooks. If you use the newest version of Word, or expect to upgrade to it soon, this is the book for you. All illustrations, commands, menus, and examples are drawn directly from Word 2007.

However, because Office 2007 is still so new, we recognize that most folks will still be using an earlier version of Word.

If you are using Word 2000, Word 2002, or Word 2003 - the Word 2000 Edition of Elegant Ebooks is the book for you! The screen captures, instructions, examples, and commands are all drawn from Word 2000, the most widely used version of Word.

LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED

Elegant Ebooks is fully illustrated with screen caps and samples in every chapter. You'll unravel mystifying commands and menus in Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat and discover ways to put the true power of these program to work for you.
