There is an adage that “everyone has a book in them.” While there are millions of businesspeople, each one has done something different, taken a different path, or found something that worked for them. Your experience and knowledge could benefit other entrepreneurs. Perhaps you have suffered through some health or emotional trauma—what you experienced and learned could help someone who is going through something similar. Or maybe you have a take on productivity—there are others that could use that technique. It may be a fascinating nonfiction subject you know a lot about; it may be an idea for an exciting novel.
Today, the technology allows anyone to publish a professional-looking book. With a personal computer and online services such as Amazon or Apple’s iBooks Store, you can publish your book in print or as an electronic version—without any cost to the author except time.
This book teaches you how to format your print version just like traditionally published books. It describes the process of designing a cover, preparing the files, and uploading to Amazon, Kindle, and the iBooks Store. Everything you need to publish a professional-looking book is inside.
