The Ultimate Minimalist Guide to E-Book Publishing
With the ever-growing popularity of e-books, the field is expanding. Not only can you write the book you want to write, but you can also give it a new spin and make it fit for today’s audiences. You can publish your e-book on Amazon Kindle or Apple iBooks and reach a huge audience. Self-publishing is becoming more common as people want to avoid the middleman and afford greater control over their content. Additionally, as a self-published author, you have the added bonus of being able to market your work independently, without the aid of a traditional publisher.
While traditional publishers still exist, the tides are changing and so is the way you can go about publishing your work. It is an open secret that many big name publishers have turned to the self-publishing revolution, seeing it as a way to combat declining sales and the rise of e-books (and their own e-reader plummeting the popularity of the physical copy). Self-publishing gives you complete control over your content, regardless of your technical skill level. With a little bit of research, you can easily find the right agency or individual to help you take your book from concept to publication. Once it is up and running, you can use the Amazon Kindle store to attract readers to your work.

Where to Start
If you are considering writing an e-book on a sensitive topic like substance abuse, where do you start? Is there a particular area you want to cover? What do you know about the subject matter? What would you like to learn? Having a specific target audience in mind will help you choose the right keywords and build a clear, concise thesis statement that will serve as the basis for your work. This will, in turn, make it easier for your readers to find the information they need and enhance the impact of your book.
If you do not have a specific, focused area in mind, consider what you already know. Do you have a particular area of expertise, perhaps in drug testing or medicine? Consider using this as your starting point and work your way backwards, identifying the key elements you need to include in your book to make it successful. Start by defining the problem and then devise a solution that addresses the issue at hand. You can use your expertise to back up your arguments and offer advice or guidance to the reader. Ensure that your solution is backed by evidence and that you have covered all the bases. If you are writing for a more general audience, you should avoid overly technical language and use simple, everyday words and phrases to keep things interesting.
There are many problems that plague this world. Some are fixable and some are not. The issue of substance abuse falls into the second category. The fact is that this problem is prevalent in all areas of society and it is not something that can be ignored any longer. Everyone needs to take a stand against this issue and do their part to help the thousands of people who struggle with this disease every day. Do not get discouraged if your book does not sell a single copy. At the very least, you have accomplished something that will hopefully help those who read it. You made a difference simply by shining a light on this issue and being a voice of reason for those who need it. It is not easy to put yourself in the shoes of someone who is suffering from addiction. The best place to start is by simply being there for them, by listening and validating their feelings, and by being a shoulder to cry on when the going gets tough. You cannot change the world, but you can change a life and make it better. One book at a time, we can all make a difference.
