This article discusses making money from home by writing E-Books.

Make Money

Working from home is something I love very much. I started out transcribing audio which was a great start but realized I needed more money than that. I began to look at my skills and expanding my work. I had clients requesting that I write for them. I did not have any confidence in my writing skills but decided I would give it a shot. I figured I would write for a client and if they did not like it I would just refund the money. Now I am writing an entire E-Book series for a client and making really good money doing it.

The way you begin writing E-Books from home is the same way you would begin any other project. You start out looking for clients. Many people post the jobs on freelance job boards. This is where I find the majority of my work. When you sign up for these sites, you will have to take tests to prove that you have the skills clients are looking for. You will also have to build up a reputation before you begin receiving steady work. You can win bids on these sites by bidding very low to start out with then when you have built your reputation, you can raise your prices.

When you start bidding on E-Book writing jobs, you should find a job that is interesting to you. Find a client who needs a book written on a subject you will not have to do much if any research. This is one of the best tips I can give you if you want to be successful at writing E-Books. Clients are looking for the type of book that sounds personal, they do not want a book that sounds like it is a report. People also want to read books that contain personal experiences. Just like you would not like to read something that sounds like it has come out of a text book, neither do those who buy E-Books.

You may use the internet to research if you face a bit of writer's block, but make sure if you use anything you find online that you reword it completely to make it your own. Clients will not pay for work that has been plagiarized by the author and it is against the law for them to publish that work.

Make sure you do your best. This will mean a lot to the clients. Currently I aim for one chapter per day unless I really get into the flow then I just go with it until I have gotten everything out of me and down on paper. Sometimes clients will want to put their name on your work and you must understand if you do this you no longer have any rights to the work. There are those client that do allow you to use your name on the books which is great publicity for you. You will not get paid per sale but you will get your name out there.

This is how you begin writing E-Books from home. Make sure you have a quiet place to work and you can focus on the task at hand. A little dedication goes a long way when getting paid to write E-Books from home.

I've always had a great passion for writing., I joined wikinut to test my writing skill and discover what interests people.
Writing and earning is good as I can fit it in easily around my daily life, I am hoping to expand some of my work further a field, maybe starting with a short story for a magazine.
