Whether you are going to sell it from your own website or add it to the Kindle store there are a number of benefits of publishing an e-book.
If you are writing non-fiction, you don’t need to worry that this will need to be a weighty tome in the style of one of the later Harry Potter books 🙂 In fact, most readers of non-fiction are looking for information on a topic, or a specific answer to their question or need, in a book that can be easily digested.
Plus, if you are worried about the actual process of writing there are plenty of tools out there to help with planning and with grammar and spelling.
Still not sure whether writing a book is for you? Here are just 8 of the many benefits of creating your own e-book:
