In this article. I’ll repeat some of the steps on how to completely, and efficiently write a Best-selling Book whether fiction, or non-fiction without any hassle.
Yes! If you could recall, I mentioned something about gathering ideas, although not in this same tone.
Gathering ideas entails getting feedback from people on what they would like to read, or understand.
You could also gather ideas by observation; this entails observing your surroundings, to write something engaging, captivating, and praiseworthy.
Your ability to observe while gathering information is key, because that will enable you to write an entertaining copy.
Observation is also important because your audience want to be pleased by every line, cliché, criticism, applause, and so on, that you point out to your audience through this piece.
Talk About It
Another way to get opinions is to talk about whatsoever idea you got with friends. This will help you get more insight on what you’re trying to give your audience.
If you’re on major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the likes, I’ll suggest you randomly, or cautiously present your ideas to them.
This point has been provided, to prevent your ideas from being stolen. The truth is that many book titles have been stolen, and it would have been beneficial to provide some names, but that is inappropriate.
The bottom line is that you should be careful with whom you share ideas with, to ensure your ideas don’t get stolen.
Outline points –characters, names, locations, etc.
When looking for suggestions, and before you begin making preparations for your book, outline points, character names, abilities, and traits.
This action will help you to understand each of your characters better, while planning the book.
Also outlining the points is an easy way of plotting the story of your book if you are writing a fiction book.
For non-fiction eBooks, outlining points is also helpful in planning the pattern of the write-up.
So! Before you start writing, outline your points, as this will enable you to easily present it to the people you choose to communicate it with.
Research your content
Researching your content involves providing thorough, and exact facts, and reports on the particular topic you are writing on.
Doing proper research on the title, and contents of your project is essential, as this will help you in proper preparation for the journey you are about to embark on.
You could visit a local library and the internet to get more ideas for your Non-fiction book or Search the internet for interesting stories, from which you could gain inspiration.
An easy way to research your contents, so as to get ideas, is to check out other books, which have the same genre or are in the same niche as your book. You’ll be surprised about the ocean of ideas you’d find by comparing.
So, now that you’ve gathered ideas, spoken about it with professionals, and friends what next? Well, the next step, is to prepare yourself for the writing journey.
Doing things like getting your outline ready, getting your tools ready, and making a schedule are the things that are needed for your preparation.
For people who do not know what tools to use, then I’ll suggest you read my article on Best writing tools for the Average writer.
You might want to oust yourself from the troubles of the world, by going on a long trip, but this action is not necessary, since you could just prepare a schedule tabling what you’d like to use your time to do.
Doing so will enable you enjoy your time writing.
For empathy on the type of tools you should use for writing I’ll suggest you either use Reedsy’s Book Editor, which is a free online tool.
It provides you with proofreading services on a paid service, but its grammar correction services are cool, and top notch.
You could also use Scrivener, but make sure you use Microsoft word along with it to make sure changes are effected.
For proofreading use Grammarly premium, and Pro-writing Aid. Using the two of them will help you find out where some errors are in case some are left out by one of these tools.
For plagiarism make use of Quetext premium or Pro-writing Aid, both are cool plagiarism checkers, and are very efficient in carrying out their functions.
Print Your Manuscript Repeatedly
Many writers have found this very helpful, since most people enjoy reading hard copy, compared to soft copies. For every 5000 words you write for your book, ensure you print out your manuscript; this action is necessary to enable you present it to classified audience to proofread, suggest edits, and points.
You will find that this is a good way of making progress without creating mistakes in your book.
Add Photos to Your Book (Not necessary)
Adding photos to your book makes it kind of interactive for some of your audience.
Although some people might not fancy this, try as much as you can to reduce the number of pictures you put into your book, to maintain balance.
Also, you might want to ensure that the pictures you are adding (if you want to) are quality, and High definition.
Make sure they depict the information you would like to pass across to your audience.
Add captions to your photos to also describe what is going on there, to avoid confusion.

One great thing about CreateSpace is that it provides free templates for you to pick, and start designing from once you’ve successfully registered.

Format your eBook
Now, it’s time to re-format your eBook. Do this by inserting headers where necessary.
This action will help in splitting, and pointing out the places where a new point is being laid out.
Also insert section breaks. This feature is available for individuals using Microsoft word.
Adding section breakers is really important, in order to get your page numbers, and your headers right as well.
It is very simple to do so, and to make this effect happen, all you have to do is insert a new section at the beginning of each chapter, and another one after the first page of the new chapter.
This action, will enable you modify your header in each chapter.
Also, I’d advise you add a few blank or empty pages which should be arranged in a sequence of even numbers, whenever your chapter ends on an odd page.
You should also consider adding a table of contents, as this will help in accessibility, and easy understanding of what the book entails.
Your table of contents doesn’t have to be too stylish or classy, all you have to do is ensure that each chapter, and sub-chapter is noted successfully in your table of contents.
Create your Index Page
For non-fiction books, an index is very important; because it signifies professionalism.
Although, it might seem kind of hard to add an index to your book, there are many writing tools which are capable of helping you automatically add an index to your eBook.
This feature is one of the things that put Microsoft Word at the top of the Ranks among other writing tools.
This software has an indexing tool, which is capable of thoroughly going through each page, and recording different instances of each word in your eBook.
You might want to do this manually which is also advisable, as it will help in proper documentation words.
Professional indexers charge really large sums to do so, but when you patronize Harmony Publishing, you’ll definitely get the best prices, and efficient jobs which will definitely make you smile.
Proofreading is very important, especially the one you carry out after completing your book.
