I am really excited and have it mostly done, it will be a free download, my only concern is that it is just like a book, if it will be a free download do I need to make it easier to read, like a blog post or something of that nature? It is just over 20 pages long.

Michael very cool. Congrats on getting your book finished!

You definitely want to format the ebook in a way that is visually appealing and easy to read.

I am working with a client right now Jen McDonough who has authored a couple of books and our team is helping her finish up a new one.  What her book does well (as with any e-book) is to make sure you use a "call out" every 300-400 words.

Include a quote, picture... something to make it easier on the eyes to go through a digital book

We are also formatting books for the kindle so people who love kindle can quickly and easily read the book. 

I say keep it an e-book but just make sure you format it so it looks and reads like a good book does.

There are tons of ebook templates out there for free. One of the first ones I used is from Pat Flynn you can get his template HERE it was a ton of help for me!

Cool thanks, here is what I have thus far... download http://buff.ly/LzUcqS

Congrats on nearing the end of this part of your project!!

You're right that making it easy to read and download are essential. Making it a PDF with "bookmarks" is easy for the reader/buyer.  I'm going to check out the template link... that sound great!

Best,

Erin

Michael,

Congrats on your project! I liked your title headings. Definitely as Matthew suggested do call outs at least every 300-400 words. Even putting in some bolded in text areas (such as bulleted points).

Best of luck!!!
