Publishing How to eBooks - The Difference Between Writing Books & Writing eBooks

Within the last couple weeks, I have run into a problem three times. Now writing is not a large topic, therefore I possibly shouldn't have been surprised. But I was. You see writing also isn't an interest that evokes enthusiasm in persons -- especially professionals. Or maybe I ought to state exorbitant emotions as opposed to passion. You see authors tend to put their emotions onto the paper, not into their actual lives. Probably that is one reason authors are this type of laid back lot -- we expend the noisy feelings written down and keep the calm types for sure life.

In any case, two of the cases involved persons declaring that eBooks weren't true books. And that just printed books were worth serious consideration. I must certanly be straightforward; one accepted that digital books -- indicating real printed books copied to an electronic structure -- were still valid.

At once, I was predicting the effect of the arrival of standard publishers on the eBook scene.

This got me to thinking because I create equally types of books. What is the big difference between publishing an eBook and publishing a traditional book?

It did not take me extended to realize that I needed to ascertain what I meant by a book and an eBook. You see eBooks have produced a negative reputation. One that's deserved. That to be low quality and being generally a tempest in a teapot. A very tiny teapot.

Therefore I'd to place some limits round the terms.

Much too often eBooks are actually just studies having an over-inflated feeling of self-importance. They are really only bright papers and extensive record period pieces. They're far too small to be actually regarded as a book or eBook. For the most part they could fit the meaning of monograph. An article or dissertation to be much more precise.

And 2nd they're frequently poorly published and defectively edited. But that is not really a element of the medium. That's a component of the expense and recognition of quality.

But both these certainly are a vanishing breed. They could work for a short time but the marketplace will probably kill them soon.

On the other give I also looked at books. And recognized that books ran from novelty and government size completely as much as tomes. So evaluating writing different length books was going to be a problem.

The only method to be good was to evaluate the exact same fruit of the writing tree... equal length books of the same type.

So what's the huge difference between writing a very long eBook of one hundred pages and an government length book of one hundred pages?

Does an eBook take less time? Nope.

Does an eBook take less work? Nope.

Does an eBook take fewer measures? Nope.

Does an eBook take different steps? Maybe not for the writing parts.

Therefore what is the big difference?

The publishing step. When publishing an eBook you need to format the book in the form it is going to be bought in. When writing employing a traditional method the author does that.

But probably that is a publisher's problem maybe not the writer. And this really is a function of the utilization of traditional publishers versus self publishing.

Therefore the solution is... there's number difference. Publishing an eBook is exactly the same as publishing a conventional book.
