Here are two very different yet effective book-writing methods; which one will work best for you?
I’ve published several best-selling Kindle books, and people ask me all the time for my best tips on writing a book. It’s a simple request with a not-so-simple response. You see, I’ve used two very different methods for book creation. Which one will work best for you? It totally depends on you and the book concept you have in mind.
The truth is that sometimes, for some people, it just doesn’t make any sense to write a book. Maybe you simply can’t stay focused on a writing task for more than a few minutes at a time. If that’s the case, you’re never going to get it done. It could be that your schedule is already maxed out and you honestly don’t have the time to sit down and write a whole book.
But if either of these scenarios sounds familiar, don’t worry – I’m not telling you to drop your dream of creating passive Kindle income. If you keep reading, you will learn all about the two book-writing methods that have made me quite a lot of money. Here are my very best tips on writing a book.
Method #1: Write Your Own Book
Maybe you have been rolling an idea around in your head for years. If you have dreams of making your impact on the e-publishing world, then you have got to write your book. It’s time to take that seedling of an idea and nurture it into the written masterpiece you envision. Assuming you have the time, energy, and attention span to work through the book writing project, follow these basic tips on writing a book. I bet you’ll get your ideas published and start making money with the end product faster than you think!
- Start with your table of contents. This will help you organize your thoughts and make sure that your book covers every topic you intend to include. Or, if you don’t intend for your book to have a table of contents, just pretend for a little while. It will help you stay on track. And at the end, you can delete the table of contents.
- For each item on your table of contents, write down sub-topics as bullet points. This will also help you stay organized and make sure you support your topics with good supporting information.
- Write at a pace that works for you. Some people can bang out a whole book in a day. For others, it could take a bit longer than that. If you feel like you’re in a writing groove, then by all means, stay in that groove and ride it out! You will probably be amazed at how much you can accomplish in a short period of time when you are totally tuned in to the task.
- Once you are done drafting the book, pass it off to someone else for a little proofreading and editing. Trust me, the longer you have been working on this book, the more important it is that you get a fresh set of eyes to go over it for you. If you don’t personally know any good editors, there are plenty of professional editors out there who will give you a decent rate for their quality feedback.
Method #2: Pay Someone Else to Write Your Book
If you’re like most other people, you have a day job. You might have a family, or hobbies, or a social life that means a lot to you. Maybe you’re one of those people who has book ideas that you just know would make you money, if you could just force yourself to sit down and write a book.
If this sounds more like you, then check out my best tip on writing a book:
Pay someone else to write the book for you.
Before you start arguing with me, allow me to answer your questions.
- But can you trust someone else with your book idea? Yes. There are tons of professional ghostwriters out there who will be glad to get your words into a Kindle book for you. They do it every day, and they don’t steal book ideas from their clients.
- But isn’t hiring a ghostwriter expensive? It can be, but it doesn’t have to be. If you take a look at some of the job boards that are popular with virtual writers, you might be surprised at how affordable it could be to get your book written by someone else.
- But how will a ghostwriter know what I want to put in the book? They will ask you to share those ideas. You will have to have at least one interview, Skype session, or email exchange with them. You WILL have to give the writer what he or she needs to get started. If you have a table of contents or outline in mind, send it. Give your writer a kick start, sit back, and be amazed at how quickly you’re a published Kindle author.
More Tips on Writing a Book for Generating Kindle Income
Fiction is a lot of fun to read, but I truly believe that non-fiction is the way to go for passive Kindle income. Here’s why:
- It can be a great way to establish your reputation as an expert in your field.
- It can help drive traffic to your website and sell more of your product or service.
- If you believe in the information you’re sharing, it’s easy and fulfilling to create a series of helpful e-books that people are eager to buy.
- It’s so much easier to write a book about a topic you know inside and out, than to write a piece of fiction.
Once your Kindle book is written – whether you write it or hire someone else to write it – the work of publishing and promoting your book begins. That project is a whole different monster, but suffice it to say that Kindle bestsellers don’t just happen by luck.
