I was looking at some ebook projects on guru.com and would like to submit a proposal as the topics are well within my area of expertise. However, it would be my first foray into the ebook medium. I am not really sure what format my employer would be looking for in the finished product. Can anyone offer any advice? Is there any good information out there for a beginner? Thank you.

I have written several ebooks. there is no need to concern yourself with the actual format as your client will provide that information. However, if the client doesn't give it to you the default format is TNR 12, Double Spaced, first line indent. Of course you also need a title page, table of contents and list of references if you are doing non-fiction.

Hello:
just joined today-becoming an e-book writer. Has anyone heard of dtp.amazon.com? How do you like it or not and why?

Hello Jason: I've been writing e-books, so I've been very busy and am on my fourth e-book righ now for Thanksgiving. I hope to make a lot of money with seasonal e-books. I love to write fiction e-books and found a good place to begin with and make money. They have a Style Guide and the last time I read it, the guide had 84 pages! Smashwords.com has their own format they'd like writers to follow especially for their premium catalog which includes Sony, Kindle and others. It depends what you as the writer find comfortable with. I found ping.fm where you can do a little publicizing for yourself. It takes time and I too am still learning. I sign on to free e-mail e-newsletters from the writing communities so I keep abreast of the newest and found Writer's Digest too. It's amazing we writers find time to write e-books, but we do for it's our passion to write. Have fun writing. Some State's require business licenses too for writers. Best to check with your account how to go for taxes about your writng career. So much in so little time, but for your safety and sanity best to keep abreast about copyright laws too. It's rather simple just a matter of reading a lot of material. Some sites make it so simple and it's simple once you get the hang of it. Each publishing site have their own creative licenses guidelines too. This is a good start and I think I covered everything for now. Librabries have good information for beginners and we do start there at the beginning, so you're not alone in being a beginner. Life is for learning and I'm still learning and polishing a lot yet. Good luck and don't give up for you could be the next J. R. R. Tolkein. I miss him, James Herriot and Lillian Jackson Braun too. Only they can write the way they do and I love their works. I love Earl Derr Biggers too. Well good luck and much success to you. Take care and no problem in advance.

Just another fellow writer,

Krissttina
