By: Jaz Lai

Ebooks are part of the new frontier of cyberspace. They are anentirely new medium for sharing marketing information, ideas,techniques, and expert knowledge. Each day the number of peopleaccessing the Internet grows, causing the exposure of your ebookto increase incrementally. It's obvious why electronicself-publishing has become so popular so quickly.

And here's how you can make a fortune from digital publishing:

The publishing industry, I hope, does not intend to foreverbanish the printed word to the dustbin of history. Books inprint have their own special qualities and merits, and the worldwould be diminished by their disappearance.

Having said that, let's look at what makes ebooks so importantand so unique. Ebooks have certain abilities and qualities thatother mediums do not possess.

For example, ebooks are fairly easy to produce, and theirproduction cost is inexpensive. Just think about it: you don'tneed a publisher, an agent, a printing press, offset film, ink,paper, or even a distributor. You just need a great concept, theability to write it or to hire a writer, and the right software.

Additionally, ebooks are easily and rapidly distributed online.They are also easily updated; they do not require a second printrun. All you need is to go into your original creation andmodify the text or graphics. Because of this flexibility, ebookscan change and grow as fast as you can type.

Ebooks are also immediately obtainable. You don't have to go toa bookstore or search through endless titles at an onlinebookstore. All you have to do is download it from a website, andpresto! It's on your computer, ready to be read.

Ebooks are interactive. This is one of the most unique andspecific qualities that ebooks offer. You can add surveys thatneed to be filled out, order forms for customers to purchaseyour products or goods, sound and video that draw your readerinto the virtual world of your ebook, even direct links torelevant sites that will expand your ebook outward. Thepotential is virtually limitless.

Ebooks have a particular kind of permanence that other mediumsdo not possess. Television shows and radio shows air once, andthen may rerun a few times. Ebooks remain on your computer foras long as your choose, and they can be read and reread wheneveryou choose to. They can even be printed out and stored on theshelves of your traditional home library.

Another wonderful quality is that ebooks have no barriers interms of publishing. You don't need to go through the endlessprocess of submitting your manuscript over and over again, andthen once you land an agent, having the agent submit yourmanuscript over and over again. Nor do you have to shell outthousands of dollars for printing a self-published book. Allebooks require is a writer and appropriate software. Figure outyour market, write your book, post it on your website, and withthe right business savvy, your audience will come to you.

Finally, you have creative control over your ebook. You don'thave to compromise with an editor or the publishing trends ofthe time. You don't have to haggle with a designer or wait forcopyedited galleys to arrive by snail mail. You are in completecontrol of the design and the text.
