Book Description

Most authors take months, even years, to write a traditional printed-on-paper book of about 90,000 words.
Ebooks are shorter. Some can be written within 14 days.

My friend Richard Webster usually writes four books a year. He has had 110 paper books published.
Everything he writes gets published and he hasn’t had a rejection in decades.

The reason is simple.

Richard discusses the project with his publisher BEFORE he starts writing a single word and, he has learned HOW TO WRITE NON-FICTION.

In this ebook I’ve listed the top 48 topics* which a super-successful ebook author says are “the hottest topics to write about because they always sell”.

This ebook explains how YOU can become a writer of short ebooks which sell on Amazon. Your royalties will keep rolling in for 50 years.

This ebook includes three BONUS items. For example:
Bonus #3. If you get stuck and the various Q&A places I’ve shown you STILL haven’t helped you, call me. Yes, telephone me.
Buying this ebook includes my offer to HELP YOU, if I can.
Brian Morris *********. <<< That’s my home number in New Zealand.
Note: the actual telephone number is in the ebook, as you'd expect. But not here.

Ebooks are quicker to write than printed books

Ebooks are produced in a shorter time than paper-bound books for several reasons.
Significantly, they tend to have fewer pages, typically from 20 to 100.
Most non-fiction ebooks address a particular niche topic or problem. When that topic is covered, the ebook is complete. Job done.

Writing short ebooks is a mind-set thing. The vital first step is to identify a narrow niche topic you’ll enjoy writing about. That’s what makes it fun.

I proved (to myself) this tactic works when I set out to write a complete ebook in one day.
Absolute truth.

I started at 8am Saturday 26 November 2011 and finished at 7pm, with only a short break for a sandwich. The excitement of the task drove me on.
It was a simple instruction book. ‘How to grow sexy upside-down tomatoes’. Amazon code B006A8N1YI

It sells steadily at $5.
I took all the photos and wrote the text in a burst of two-fingered enthusiasm. Frankly, it was a buzz. BTW, Tom Gardiner is me.

Why are ebooks cheaper?
Usually, they are short books. They don’t have as many hours of the author’s time invested in making them, and you know “time is money”.

They don’t need typesetting, plates, printing, ink, paper, binding, cartons, warehousing, insurance, trucking, shipping or distribution.
These overheads are significant in the traditional book publishing industry.

Best of all, ebooks never get remaindered. So there is no built-in fund for book recovery, return shipping, shredding and waste disposal.

Choose a suitable category
The category I’ve had most success with is ‘How to … ’ titles.
‘How to do this’ or ‘How to do that’.

They are simple instruction books.
Usually they serve an urgent need.
Or they can address a high-intensity hobby interest.

People with pets, boats, horses, planes, grandchildren etc are well known to spend beyond the common sense level on their passion. We all do this!

*Here’s the list of 48 hot topics Nick Daws says sell in big numbers. He should know!
Highlight the topics YOU would like to write about. Note how many begin ‘How to…’

The 48 hottest topics for ebooks.
1. Better sleeping techniques
2. How to boost your creativity
3. How to build your self-esteem
4. How to bring up teenagers
5. How to buy a house
6. How to care for your cat
7. Chinese medicine tips
8. Small container gardening
9. Coping with arthritis
Sorry, no space to list them all here.
If you really want to write an ebook, start here, with this list.
Read the whole book. Make notes.

Above all, make a START.

Your first ebook could be on Amazon next week! Royalties roll in later.
The truly amazing thing is this: You write the ebook ONCE. But your royalties keep on earning for the next 50 years.

That's a nice passive income.
But you must start.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good info worth repeating June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Direct and to the point, reiterating valuable information that bears repeating, even if there is very little that is new to experienced writers. Info is presented in almost bullet point format that is easy to read and to follow. Checklists and resource lists alone are worth the price of the book. Although it can't be considered a comprehensive text or even a basic all you need to know book, the bones are solid, even if they meat is spare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A way forward May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find it somewhat surprising that the author is prepared to give out his details so that any reader, wanting further advice or help, can contact him. For those of us who may never be published by a firm in the traditional manner, this signposts the way forward to allow us to share our creativity.
I intend to let this book help me create my own ebook.
Thanks Brian.

More About the Author

+ Brian Morris has been a professional writer for 50 years. As is usual, his first effort at age 7 (in pencil) was rejected by Reader's Digest.
Since then he has focused on writing non-fiction ebooks.
"My aim is to produce a new ebook every two weeks, and I'm on target."
His other aim is to show as many people as will listen how to write their own ebooks. That means giving talks to writers groups, 'How-To' workshops and NZIBS writing courses.
"I know the topics of my next 40 ebooks, but there are only 25 hours in a day."
