There are at least two approaches when you want to write a best selling e-book in 1 month. One is to be the reporter and the other is to be the expert. Now if you know a lot about your topic, say "saving money on weddings", then, by all means start writing that e-book right now. As an example, let's assume that you wish to write a book on Fabulous Weddings for Less.
As a reporter, you are expected to find the information you need. This is done by tracking down experts and conducting interviews. Next you're going to interview some experts. We're going to add some bulk to this book, some expertise to this book. Do you think the local florist has some ideas on saving money on flower arrangements for a wedding? Do you think she would mind being interviewed for an e-book about saving money on weddings? Well, of course not, especially when you put her contact info in the e-book. Be creative when seeking out experts.
Ask florists, pastors, and wedding planners - anyone who might have great information. Each and every expert has at least one tip that could help rocket your e-book to success. When you record the interview, use equipment that makes CD quality sound.
This includes an Olympus DM10 and a lapel mike. You can convert the recordings to mp3 or wave files. When I am interviewing, I use a Y-jack (picked up at WalMart) and two mics. This offers excellent sound. Since I interview many people, even over the phone, I rely on this system.
I can hear you now - "Why do I need to record interviews?" First, you have a record of the interview. Hire someone to transcribe it, or transcribe it yourself, if you would like a written record. These recordings are also valuable as a bonus product, to encourage sales of your product.
Using recordings, you can write your e-book in 1 month. These recorded interviews will practically write the book for you!.
