Hi Candice. Everything I did was free. Here are the
free tools to write your own ebook and publish it online.
First download this file for free to your computer. It has
everything you need to write your book including any affiliate
links you want to include and so on.
After you have written your book including your title, table on
contents, etc. you will want to save your document in a pdf form or
doc, docx, etc. Amazon will tell you if it is not uploaded in
the correct format and you can go to your open office portable and
save it again in the correct format.
You will next want to go to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing and
sign up for a free publisher account.
Upload your book and it will be ready to sell in and be live on
Amazon.com in about 3 days. You can also upload your book to
Createspace which is a partner of Amazon for a paperback version of
your book and sell it for free as well. They have free book
covers for you to choose from and everything. You set your
own prices for your books. I did this over a weekend.
You can do it too! In your ebook and book you can
direct your readers to go to your blog for more traffic. You
can also use upload n' sell to sell your book directly on your
website or blog for people to buy by uploading your ebook file in
pdf and put in your paypal email address and they will handle the
entire transaction for you for free.
Here are the links for createspace and upload n sell
I hope this is helpful and answers your question. If not,
just let me know.
