A biography is really important, since readers will want to know who wrote the e-book, and will want to know a lot more if they like it. It has to make readers remember who you are and what you're representing. Provide true, interesting information within the biography and write it in such way it drives the reader to want to find out more about you. You might hire someone to write your biography, if you're not keen on doing it yourself. A link to your website within the e-book is also a must. You can even put it in headers or footers.

Provide information about what you're currently ambitious about, what are your successes, your education eventually. Keep it all as closest to the topic of e-book as possible. You don't wanna be bragging about something that doesn't have to do anything with it.

Then, write an impressum, which in most cases is before the table of content page. It should define who's the publisher (name yourself here if you're self-publishing an e-book), the address of the publisher, date of publishing, type of publishing, photography authors, and any other 'thanks to'.

Great article. I would also suggest publishing it on Amazon/Kindle. It is free and you can get all the help you need in the form of templates and even a cover maker. Worked great for me. You can find how to publish on Kindle here

I agree ebooks are an important source of revenue for us---so long as we give really strong value to the reader.

You might want to look on Amazon for how to publish/market ebooks on Kindle----they are a goldmine of ideas.

Look to your eventual publisher before you write so you use the correct formatting for , your specific publisher. On Amazon, for instance, there's simple ways of publishing ebooks if you use Wordpress to write your content..

In your training, I really liked the part at the end, where you talk about leveraging your ebooks. Never want to just assume you write an ebook, publish it, and that's it.
Seems interesting. Definitely worth taking a look!
