 ==== ====EBOOKS: RESUMOS EM PORTUGUÊShttp://www.ebooksreviewsbrasil.blogspot.com/  ==== ====Authoring a book, specifically an eBook (electronic book), is easy, affordable and profitable. Shareyour expertise and experience with an international on-line community of learners. Fulfill that dream of yours to write a book and become a published author. Take that workshopyou've written and presented; take that unit of study you've produced; take that wish that there hadbeen a book about something when you needed it most and convert that need into an eBook forothers to use and enjoy; take that interest or hobby and convert your personal experience andprofessional expertise into an instructional eBook; share your love of a topic with others toencourage them to share your joy or support them in their quest for further skill development; useyour experiences to get someone else 'turned on' to what you have been enjoying for years;provide the attitudes, skills, and knowledge for others that will help them do a better job... Yes, youcan accomplish all of this and so much more with eBooks. The technology of eBook production has become so remarkably easy, affordable and yes, evenprofitable that you do not need to be a computer expert to become an accomplished and publishedauthor. Whatever your status: student or teacher; worker or administrator; amateur or professional;experienced or inexperienced; veteran or newcomer; rising star or established guru; famous orinfamous... you have something to offer to others who have not had the same experiences oraccomplished the things you have done. We at Awaken The Author Within and eBook Authoring Services have broken the eBook authoringprocess into 10 steps. A brief outline of those steps is the focus of this article. The article isdesigned to inform you of the steps, assure you that anyone may accomplish the task, provide youwith an outline of the process and point you in the direction of further information to make theprocess both an exhilarating personal adventure and a professional development activity of thehighest order. WRITING is a POWERFUL TOOL. It is the DOING part of THINKING. The first step in the process is to have an IDEA for a book. There are few of us who haven't said toourselves at one time or another, "Some day I'd like to write a book about ..." or "I wish someonewould have provided me with information about ____ when I was first starting out." or "Now thatI've reached this point in my career (hobby, role, interest,...) I'd like to share my experiences withothers." Whatever you choose as a topic for your first eBook in particular, choose something aboutwhich you already are a self-proclaimed 'expert'! And something about which you are passionate. The second step in the process is to spend some time in REFLECTION. This is a step that goes
 
hand in hand with the first step. You've already thought about such things as why you would wantto write an eBook; what benefits writing an eBook would give to you, the author, and your readers;who would benefit most from the sharing of your experience and expertise; when would be a goodtime to begin the process; where you might find an audience for your eBook; how you would getyour eBook to those people who would most benefit from it. At this step, share your idea ofauthoring an eBook and the chosen topic with as many people as possible to get their feedback.Be a risk-taker! In essence, at this stage you are working towards the third step. The COMMITMENT step is the first really important one, the step that separates the dreamersfrom the doers; the step that embraces change for personal and professional gain; the step thatsays you are willing to acquire the attitudes; skills, and knowledge to become not only a publishedauthor but a successful one as well; the step that moves you into an adventure that will assure youthat you will never be the same person again. This is the most exciting step along the way! The fourth step is called the BIG PICTURE step since it is here that you call upon both yourrealistic and your fanciful self to envision the final product. Imagine your eBook cover published ona web site, your eBook being read by others, your professional and personal pride in youraccomplishment, your exhilaration at earning money as an author (if you choose to sell youreBook), your "dream come true"! At this step you must also make decisions involving such bigpicture ideas as: the scope of your eBook, the number of eBooks in the series if more than oneeBook is required, the topic or topics to be covered, the background information you alreadypossess or need to acquire, the people who can act as mentors... After the big picture ideas have been dealt with, the fifth step is the choice of how the eBookinformation is to be CHUNKED. By chunking we mean breaking the general topic into manageableand palatable parts for the learner who acquires your eBook. This depends entirely upon thecontent of your eBook and the method(s) you see as best to present the material based on yourknowledge of the topic. This can range from the simplest format of chapters to question andanswer format to case studies to worksheets to theory and practice applications to problems andsolutions to how to books to journals of discovery to... Step six is the step we all associate with authoring an eBook - the WRITING! In reality, this step ismerely one of the 10! It is often the most enjoyable because you are writing about a topic aboutwhich you have a passion as well as skills, attitudes, and knowledge you wish to share withothers. Your personal and professional experiences will make this step a most enjoyable one.Write in an informal manner with impassioned emotion. Write like you mean it! This type of writingis as far from a thesis as you can get - a beauty of eBooks! Use a friendly letter style and talk toyour reader much like you would do in a conversation. Although this step may be the mostenjoyable, it does require a myriad of decisions by you, the author. You must consider such thingsas font size and style, spacing on the pages, header and footer considerations, word processingsoftware to use, the length of the eBook, research that needs to be done, links to the web you aregoing to use, material you must gather together, compiling method for publishing,... plus manyothers. This is a lengthy list, but manageablewhen you are prepared for it. The EDITING step, the seventh, is by far the most time consuming as any of you who have writtenbefore will attest. When your work is to be published you want it to be as perfect as possible in somany ways not just spelling and grammar. Such things as visual appeal and use of white space onthe page, style of titles, table of contents, use of black line masters, resources and sources of
 
information, ease of use... are also considerations. Make sure you have plenty of friends to helpyou with this step, likely the most time consuming step in the entire process. PUBLISHING or COMPILING your eBook is step eight which is the step required to turn your bookinto an eBook! The quality of your eBook when it is presented to your audience in its final formdepends on the quality of your editing in step seven. You may choose to have your eBookcompiled in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language - .exe) or PDF (Portable Document Format - .pdf)or any of the other ways you can have it done to accommodate different reading devices. YoureBook must be made ready to be downloaded from the Internet on to a computer. You will havethe choice of doing a little, none or as much work as you wish at this stage. Your decision willdepend on the amount of personal time you wish to invest and the amount of money you wish topay for the services needed. This cost is minimal regardless of the choice you make. Cost is not adeterrent to getting your eBook compiled. Like in the previous step, MARKETING your eBook can be done with as much personal effort asyou wish. It is important in step nine that you get your eBook to market! You can become your ownmarketer by creating a web site. Other web sites and professional agents or marketers are alsoavailable to do this job. The costs vary depending on the choice you make and there are manychoices available to you. Again, cost is not a deterring factor here. For your own sake and thesake of your eBook, you should get involved in the marketing of your eBook as much as possible.After all, you have the most important investment of all in your eBook - your emotional involvementand you know the 'niche' market best for whom you wrote the eBook in the first place. In addition,you stand to gain personally and financially by increasing exposure of the eBook. The absolute best step in the process which coincidentally is the "10" step, is CELEBRATING!You deserve a celebration for the final step in this literary and eCommerce adventure. You need tothank those dozens of others who contributed in ways big and small to your success. You shouldrejoice in the euphoria of accomplishing a dream! You should celebrate the fact that many peoplego through their entire lives without ever accomplishing what you had dreamed of accomplishing -becoming a published author! Share your success with others and encourage them to do the same thing. Become a mentor toyour friends and acquaintances. Share the joy. Leave your mark! Dare it be mentioned - there just may be one more eBook in you! Let the adventure begin ANEW! © 2005 Paul Jackson Paul Jackson is a retired Elementary School Principal who has discovered the joy or writing.
