How To Write A "How-To" Book (or eBook) sets the modern-day standard for how-to write "how-to" books, ebooks and info-products. It is based on the premise that anyone who has a hobby, interest or activity that they are knowledgeable and passionate about can easily create their own how-to book or ebook - no matter what the subject. In his tenth how-to book to-date, this author shares every detail of what he has learned in creating and writing his own how-to books over the past few years. He provides a step-by-step approach that will walk you through every aspect of producing a professional quality how-to book or ebook. The book contains specific examples, illustrations, and screen shots that explain exactly what you need to do -- in paint-by-number detail. It also stresses the importance these days of including resource and reference tie-ins with the Internet, if one's book is to be credible. It even includes a chapter on how you can easily extend and add value to your how-to book/ebook using readily-available, easy-to-use audio and video technology to create online tutorials and info-updates. The book itself is a real-life testament to the kind of how-to book that you too can create - no matter what your passion.
