I was intrigued by the title of this book - writing an
eBook in 7 days? But that's exactly what Jim Edwards and
Joe Vitale show you how to do.

However,Guest Posting your eBook doesn't have to be 100 pages. In fact,
Joe Vitale's best selling eBook 'Turbo Charge Your Writing'
is only 22 pages (and 2 of those pages are order forms).
And the authors give the example of someone who wrote a
book just 7 pages long that sells for between $30 and $50.
The fact is that people are swamped with information. So
the shorter your book, the better.

Vitale and Edwards both have impressive track records in
online publishing. Joe Vitale (also known as 'Mr. Fire') is
something of a legend in the world of marketing. He has
written over 12 successful books and has helped more than
200 authors to write, publish and promote their books.

Jim Edwards writes a syndicated newspaper column called
'NetReporter.com' and is a frequent guest speaker at
national conferences on topics such as search engine
traffic generation and 'shoestring' online marketing. He's
also the author of '33 Days To Online Profits' and 'The
Lazy Man's Guide To Online Business'.

If you're like many aspiring authors, you may have the urge
to write your book first and then find out if there's a
market for it. But as Edwards and Vitale point out, that's
a formula for eBook failure.

In chapter 2 ('Setting Yourself Up for Success') the
authors show you how to identify your niche market, how to
analyze their wants, needs and problems, and how to write a
book that satisfies those wants, needs and problems.

Don't skip this chapter - it provides very detailed
techniques for using keyword research to find out exactly
who your target audience is and where you will find them on
the Internet.

The authors' program for writing your eBook in seven days
contains some useful techniques for getting your creative
juices flowing and getting your words down on paper -
writing your material as a letter to a friend, and writing
your sales copy first.

The chapter on 'Formatting Your eBook Text' contains some
valuable tips, such as breaking up your text with bullets
and headers. Your readers will thank you for it - one of
the keys to avoiding credit card charge backs is to make it
easy for your readers to absorb your information.

Chapter 10 ('How To Make Money with your eBook') gives you
some tried and tested formulas for turning your eBook into
profits, such as selling the reprint rights and 'back
loading' your eBook with your own affiliate links, joint
ventures and affiliate programs.

The book also contains interviews with eight successful
eBook authors, including Yanik Silver, Rick Beneteau, and
Jay Conrad Levinson.

The interview with Yanik Silver is worth reading very
carefully. He reveals how he made tens of thousands of
dollars by setting up 3 separate profit streams in the same
eBook: reprint rights, his own affiliate links and
customization fees.

If you want to create your own information product, this
book is definitely worth reading - you'll find out that
it's easier than you think. You can get your copy of 'How
To Write and Publish Your Own eBook in as little as 7 Days'
