Format your posts

Now is the time to make the changes you realised you should have. Incorporate the suggestions you got from your readers. Correct those typos. Add an Index, Acknowledgement, Post Titles, Number your pages, and whatever you like.  In short, polish up your posts till you think they shine just right. MS Word is the best to help you get all this done.

The minimum word count required for e-books is 5 k words

Create a Cover

The cover should have an Image, the Book Title, a Tagline (if you have one) and of course, your Name! Keep in mind that the font you use is clearly visible and readable too, and make your cover eye-catching.

You could create you cover using Canva, using a generic pic or one of those that you have used in your book.

Cover dimensions 1600px*2400px

You will be allotted free copies of your book, the link for which you could share with your friends and family so that they could download it.

All e-books published will be on their website for 1 month and Blogchatter sees to it that you get at least 1 Review for your book. You will also be required to review 2 books.

Some Tips

Do consider adding pictures to your book if they are relevant to your post. While pictures do enhance the reading experience, they also weigh down the book, making downloading it a slow process.

Use Canva, Pixabay, Pexels and Unsplash for free and copyright free images.

Share your book download link with your family, friends and on your Social Media.

Read and review books apart from the compulsory ones.
