Writing the eBooks has never been that easy. It is made of only a few steps. The most important is to have a good content, meaning the written material, pictures, tables, etc. Basically, you can use Word for preparation of text and other content.
Content of the eBook can be anything: a novel or a short story; it can be your business presentation; you can make a teaser for your web-site. Simply you can take anything for the eBook content.
Once finished, prepared material should be converted to PDF format. Of course, you can keep it in Word, but converting it to PDF you make it more appealing, but you also assure that your work will be kept in original form. Though even the PDF can be changed too, is more likely that once you have your e-book in PDF it will stay as it is.
