 ==== ====EBOOKS: RESUMOS EM PORTUGUÊShttp://www.ebooksreviewsbrasil.blogspot.com/  ==== ===="E-Book" is short for Electronic Book---an organized set of content delivered in an electronicformat. There are many different types of e-books including packaged executables, PDF, andformats for the handheld computer. As with so many of the original e-books, your e-book doesn't have to be about Making Money orInternet Marketing---people are interested in many other things. What makes an e-book valuableto a wide audience is that it provides information that people cannot easily find elsewhere. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of writing numerous printed books and working on severalelectronic publications. From what I've seen, the e-book medium supports the greatest creativeflexibility. Images can come alive, you can provide interactive forms and content, the user canaccess remote databases, and you can support dynamic updates whenever the content changes.There are, however, several steps involved in the process to properly develop and promote an e-book to your audience. The Process When developing an e-book, you have to perform several important steps to create qualitycontent. Each step allows you to fine-tune your idea and the end-product so that readers will learnfrom and enjoy the content you provide. - Brainstorm an Idea Ideas are cheap, but good ideas take time to develop. To develop a good idea, you have to jotdown as many ideas as possible, then go through the list to make sure that: * you're interested in the idea; * you're knowledgeable on the topic; * you're hitting the greatest, potential market; * people will purchase the information; and * you can market to those interested. Once you reduce the list to a few solid choices, go back through and examine the remaining topicsto determine which topics you can write, by: 
* determining what you know about the topic; * performing market research to ensure that you have a market and an angle for that market; and * performing competitive research to find your competition's products, successes, failures, andtarget markets. While fine-tuning your product, remember that people will buy the product if it: * solves a problem; * improves an existing product; * hits on a hot trend; * creates a new niche; or * fills a current need. - Develop an Outline Once you come up with the idea, you'll have to create an outline or table of contents to developthe idea. The best way I've found to do this is to break the idea down into blocks of contiguousinformation---similar to assembling a pyramid. At the top is the IDEA with each successive levelproviding a more detailed sequence of points that ultimately explain the top-level IDEA. The outline itself should be at least four levels deep so that you can understand what you'll say foreach section or chapter. Research each section and collect pertinent information so that you candevelop a coherent outline and understand the depths of what it is you are writing. - Develop the First Draft The first draft is merely a "brain dump." Follow your outline and write as much as possible abouteach section. Don't worry about format, spelling, or grammar at this point, as you'll focus onresolving those issues later. - Substantive Edit A substantive edit is a review of the manuscript where you fine-tune the content. You have tomake sure that the content is complete, contains pertinent information for the topic, and providesenough relevant information to explain the topic. At this point, you can perform additional researchto verify the content or enhance the information for the reader. - Content/Technical Review Find some experts in your manuscript's topic area and have them review it for accuracy andreadability. This type of review ensures that the information is correct and that the target audiencewill be able to understand the content. Many times, experts will take credit in the
acknowledgements as opposed to a fee, but this is something you'll have to work out with them. - Second Draft The second draft takes into account the information from your reviewers as well as changes youneed to make based on your own review of the content. Once this draft is complete, take a day ortwo off to give your brain a break. This way, when you return to the manuscript, you'll be fresh andable to catch any mistakes that you would've otherwise missed. - Copy Edit The copy edit allows you to check the grammar, spelling, and readability of the content. Make surethat everything is formatted appropriately and that your manuscript provides a professionalpresentation. - Proof In a publishing house, proofreaders will go through the product and check for any final productionissues, wording, and problems with content. Do a pre-package of the product and send it out to afew people to have them read through the product. Ask them to check for any mistakes or errorsthat might have been missed. - Packaging Once you've completed the manuscript, you can package it in several different formats. Theformat choice depends on your target audience as well as your desired presentation. Of course,you can always have an e-publisher generate the package, but they too will use one of the formatsdiscussed in this section. Developed by Adobe (http://www.adobe.com), PDF is a document packaging format that iscompatible across several platforms (i.e., Microsoft Windows, UNIX, Macintosh, etc.) A PDFdocument is viewed on the free Adobe Acrobat viewer, which is itself platform-dependent. Whendeveloping PDF documents, stay with standard writing practices involved in creating manuscripts.Adobe Distiller, which usually comes with FrameMaker, works with just about any word-processingenvironment (e.g., Microsoft Word, TeX, etc.) and generates a PDF of your manuscript directlyfrom the application. E-Book compilers take HTML files and package them into a single executable application. Thisformat is, however, limited in its distribution as it will only run on its target platforms. For instance,one of the better compilers, Activ E-Book (http://www.ebookcompiler.com), is targeted to run onMicrosoft Windows platforms. You will need a compiler that supports all of the major facets ofHTML as well as password protection, configurability, and branding. Branding allows you to createe-books branded with your affiliates' or distributors' names. Note that the vendors for some of themore expensive compilers will not only charge for the compiler, but also charge royalties fordistribution rights. Handheld e-book reader formats are very wide because of the multitude of e-book readersavailable on the market today. In most cases, all you have to do is generate a solid manuscript
