How to Write an Ebook in 4 Hours or Less

So you’ve decided to write an ebook. Congratulations! You’re about to embark on an exciting journey that will likely change the way you look at the world. An ebook is a digital book that you can sell on the Internet that usually costs around £12.99 – £79.99 to publish. They are a quick and easy way to make money online without needing to actually write the book yourself. As a budding author, you might be wondering how to write an ebook in under four hours. Let’s have a look.

The Plot

You’ve probably seen some pretty famous crime novels and wanted to try writing one yourself. What if I told you that you could write an entire novel in under four hours and it would be a guaranteed bestseller? What would be the catch? The catch is that the novel would need to be about a famous person or a celebrity. Got the attention of a few hundred thousand people in the process? That would be a bestseller.

In that case, you would have to decide what type of story you want to write. There are two common elements that run through most of the crime novels that become bestsellers. One, the main character solves the crime. Two, there is a shocking revelation at the end that leaves the reader shocked and thinking about the story for a long time after reading it. In this case, you could choose to do either of those things, as long as you keep the essence of a crime thriller. 

The Characters

When writing an ebook, you need to decide on the character that you will use as the main protagonists. The protagonist is the person the reader will most likely relate to and who the reader will most likely want to read more about. In most cases, the protagonist is a male, between 20 and 35 years old, who wants to make his  mark on the world with his unique set of skills and attitudes. The character will embody all the elements that make up your ideal reader in terms of interests, hobbies, social media accounts, etc.

In terms of the antagonist, you need someone opposite to the protagonist in every way. Typically, this is a bad guy who is much older, around the same age as the protagonist, and who has more experience in life. He is also usually a Harvard graduate or a Princeton graduate, because these are the types of people who go on to become CEOs, investment bankers, and make lucrative business deals. It’s no coincidence that the antagonists in most successful crime novels are often depicted as business tycoons or multi-millionaires, because at the end of the day, that’s who the protagonists are up against. The antagonists can be physically fit and attractive, but they still need to exude malevolence and possess ruthless ambition.

The Setting

Now, this is something that differentiates a crime novel from any other type of novel. In a crime novel, the setting is never truly described in detail. Typically, the setting will be a place that the reader can picture in their heads easily. It could be a real location such as New York City or it could be somewhere more surreal, like the Mojave Desert. The important thing is that the reader can picture the place clearly in their minds and feel like they are there.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you want your novel to appeal to a wider audience, you don’t necessarily need to choose a real place. The setting could be based on a place the reader knows well, but has a somewhat different vibe to it. For example, you could have a desert setting and use New York City as inspiration for the atmosphere in the novel. The important thing is to make the place feel as realistic as possible.

The Protagonist’s Plan

When your protagonist sits down to write the novel, they will have a clear picture in mind of how their story will play out. The plan is vital in order to keep the audience interested and hooked into the story. When the antagonist realizes that the protagonist is going to write a book about them, they will do everything in their power to try and stop them. This often goes hand in hand with the above section, where the antagonist schemes to murder the protagonist. As a result, there is a lot of tension and excitement in the early stages of the story. It’s also a good idea to reveal some of the main characters’ motives early on, so the reader understands why they are doing what they are doing. Even if you write a brilliant novel about an ordinary person who just happens to be a genius, if you don’t have a clear idea of why they are doing what they are doing, it will be difficult for the reader to relate to them. This is why you need to make sure that each character is memorable and has a unique story arc that evolves as the story progresses. With a little bit of planning and research, you can make sure that each character is interesting and adds a new dimension to the story. As a result, you will ensure that your book is as unique as it can be, while still being a part of the crime fiction genre.

The Research

The best way to write an original novel is by doing a ton of research. There are numerous books available out there on how to write a novel in record time, and you should read as many of them as possible. One of the most helpful books is called, “How to write a bestselling novel in 20 days.” It will teach you exactly what to do in order to fulfill the above criteria and have your book be a bestseller. More than that, it will give you a roadmap to follow, so you can write a novel that will sell well. This particular book will show you, step by step, how to do everything from choosing a killer title to working out the perfect ending. It will even tell you when to seek advice from professional writers, so you can feel confident that you are making the right decisions. In the end, you will have a beautifully written, highly engaging novel that will appeal to a wide audience. If you want to become a bestselling author, this is one of the essential books that you need to read. Keep in mind though that it will take a lot of patience, as well as talent, to write a brilliant novel that will become a bestseller. Still, it’s well worth it in the end.

The Design

Now that you’ve got a completed novel, it’s time to move onto the next step and begin the editing process. When it comes to design, you need to keep the following in mind; if you’re going to write a quick and dirty draft that you expect to be published in its current form, you don’t need to do anything fancy. However, if you’re going to go through the trouble of properly editing the novel, then you’ll want to invest in some nice templates or hire a designer to do the work for you. Regardless, it’s a good idea to find the perfect design that will complement your story and keep the attention of the reader. Once you’ve got that, it’s time to put your manuscript into action by publishing it on the internet. If you want to learn how to do this, here is a guide to publishing an ebook in four simple steps.

Step one: Choose A Title

The first step is to pick out a killer title. This is something that you’ve been thinking about for a while now and it finally came time to write. When it comes to choosing a title, there are several things that you should keep in mind. First, make sure that the title is unique. If you’re using an existing word or phrase, make sure that it’s been used before in relation to the type of novel you are writing. For example, if you’re writing a historical fiction piece, make sure that the title doesn’t suggest that it’s a modern day story. If you are writing a crime novel, find a word that is both difficult to pronounce and quite long. This will make sure that your book stays at the top of the bestseller list for quite some time. Finally, always make sure that the title expresses exactly what the book is about. If you don’t know what the book is about, then it’s better to go with a generic title, rather than something more specific, like, “My Life In Crime.” The reason being is that you might not truly know what the book is about yet, and if you do, then it’s quite possible that the title might give it away. If you do stumble upon a piece of writing that you deem the perfect fit, but it’s copyrighted, it’s usually a good idea to contact the publisher and see if they’re willing to give you permission to use the title. This is especially important if the title was derived from a famous person or entity. Unless you have written permission to use the title, it’s best to find another one.

Once you’ve chosen the perfect title, it’s time to move onto the next step.
