    Eh?
    I'm afraid the selling a book part comes only after you find a motivating subject.
     
  3. Pick something you're interested in and something you know a good about of information on. If you don't know much of what you're writing about, nobody will want to read it, regardless if it's a popular topic.

    I want to make sure it's a good-selling topic though.

    The problem is, if you don't know now, how will your ebook be valuable enough to sell? If your plan is to document yourself on free Internet content and then sell it, chances are that others will do the same instead of buying the ebook.

    You have to find something you're passionate enough about that the quality of your ebook will justify the purchase.

    "Good-selling" comes after quality.

    If you can't even come up with a topic, then you shouldn't be considering writing a book. Lack of creativity is boring....

    Nosferatu, are you a dupe account of twdavis trying for a fresh start? That'd be understandable, considering all of the Gene Simmons love that got twdavis ridiculed

    EDIT: Detective work shows this most certainly is twdavis. Nosferatu's join date is the same as the date of twdavis' last activity.

    I have no idea who that is actually. I am a Gene Simmons fan, but not enough to create a new account on a forum to keep posting abput him. How pathetic.:rolleyes:

    Anyway, this has nothing to do with my topic. Is there no way that it is a coincidence that this poster wanted to write an ebook also??

    :confused:

    Nice detective work, Spambot.

    Noseferatu/twdavis, the advice hasn't changed. If you aren't particularly well informed or interesting to read, then you probably aren't ready to write a book, electronic or otherwise. The lack of a topic just confirms the previous. If you were well informed (a subject matter expert in a particular area) then the topic will naturally come to you.

    If you are no better informed than the internet (and the internet is gaining on authors every day) then you probably will not sell too many books.

    okay, I still don't know who
    that is, but whatever. I'm not afraid to admit I'm a big Gene Simmons fan. He's a great rock basssist. So what. He gets unfairly bashed in alot
    of different places. oh well, can't change the opinions of others.

    Anyway, I just decided within the last week to write this thing. I know that there will be people in my particular niche that, once I write my book, will buy it, but what if that particular niche doesnt sell as well as others?

    Don't write if you've got nothing to say.
