About the author

Maria Pease is a writer originally from Long Island, N.Y. She is one of seven kids falling in line at number six. Growing up she was very shy and quiet and spent most of her childhood pretending. She has always loved everything about a good story and writing them seemed to come naturally. It wasn't until her son Steven was about ten that she began writing seriously. It all started when he asked to stay up a little later than his seven-year-old sister Ali. Trying to discourage this, she told him he could, but there would be no TV. The deal was that he could either read or write. He agreed and she found herself in a situation, if he couldn't watch TV, neither could she.  That's when Samantha Parker was born. The thing is, every night after Steven went to bed, she stayed up writing and before she knew it, she had written Malicious Intent A Sam Parker Mystery.  Now she has just released her second book in the series, Malicious secrets A Sam Parker Mystery. This fast-paced detective mystery finds Samantha Parker in some compromising situations as she works her caseload. Financial scams, cheating spouses, missing persons, and deviant behaviors are just the tip of the iceberg, but with her sense of humor intact and her lucky undies to give her confidence, she's ready for whatever comes her way. Maria lived in Temecula, California for 22 years. She now makes lovely Southport, North Carolina her home.

e-books: The New Frontier

So, you want to be a writer and you thought e-books may be the way to go. Well, you’re right. e-books are the future of publishing. Now, I’m not saying that print books will go away. I don’t think they will. I know I wouldn’t like that. I’m just saying that people want information quickly these days and that will not change. e-books are a great way to get the information you want f-a-s-t .

Why write an e-book you ask? Well, there are several reasons, so why don’t you get yourself a glass of iced tea, have a seat and get comfortable. Ready? Let’s get started.

First, let’s talk about what an e-book is, just to be sure we are on the same page. (No pun intended…really!) An e-book is an electronic book, called an e-book for short. It is written and saved on your computer and distributed over the internet.

Once you have written and edited your e-book, and you are ready to publish it, you need to convert it to an Adobe Acrobat PDF file so it can’t be altered in any way, and then decide how and where you will distribute it from. I will talk about publishing and distribution options in more detail later, for now, let’s move on to why you want to publish e-books.

There are several reasons why more and more authors are turning to e-books. Many people decide to write an e-book to impress friends and family, to gain additional customers with their expertise, to create a platform for another product or service or to show they are a leader in their field. Some want to share a passion that they may feel strongly about and want to deliver it to the world, but probably one of the most important reasons is because of the money you can make when you write a good one.

Traditional publishing and even using a print on demand publisher can be costly. There are all kinds of fees involved in producing a print version of your book and you may find that if your e-book does well, you might just
