Lots of people believe they have a great book idea, but they think it is way hard to actually compose a book and get it published. These days, many people are learning that the Internet has made it possible for them to become self-published authors. All they need is a good idea, the ability to compose and format a book, and then the right tools to help them get published.
We have also come up with a self-publishing secrets checklist to help you get your book published and selling. The first thing you have to do is to complete a book. You really only require a word processor and the ability to format your book correctly. Before you consider your rough draft finished, make sure you pay attention to spelling and grammar.

You may hire a professional editor. If you are working with a tight budget, you may be able to convince some friends to help you. Of course, it is best to have other people review and proofread your work. After your book is finished, you will also need a good book cover. Honestly, a well-made cover can make all the difference.
That is what buyers tend to focus on first, particularly if you are an unknown author. Would you like to have your book printed out? Would you rather start with a digital book that can be read on a computer or with an e-reader? I think it is slightly easier to start with digital books, and then work your way up to having a printed version.
