At various times in the past, I have ended up in the same place where I would read a ton, buy products on internet marketing, try something, give up before giving it a real try and feel discouraged. I have a better handle and a clearer vision of what I would like to try and the one big thing I have learned is that there is SO much to be learned from failure. My hope is to put all that learning to good use -- and profit.
I have done some searches, but I have not been able to find the answers or suggestions to the questions I have about producing an ebook. My question relates to the actual creation of an ebook AFTER the content has been produced. I am wondering if there is an online service or a recommended software program to layout the content and create the PDF. My preference is for it to not just be a PDF made out of a Word document, but something with a simple, clean layout that's a little more refined than a plain Word document.
Also, is there a way to post the ebook online so that it could be accessed via a log-in, rather than a download? Is that something any of you would even recommend doing?
One other question: Is making the ebook available in the Kindle version on Amazon highly recommended? It is an ebook product geared specifically to Canadians and I was wondering if having a geographic market focus might be something to consider.
I am a complete NEWBIE in ebooks, so any other suggestions and advice that you can share with me would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you kindly in advance,
