Book titles are not as easy to create you might think. Neither are blog post titles!
Non-fiction books are sort of like blog posts. Just longer.
So are e-books.
And, just like with blog posts, if you don’t have a catchy, captivating title, no one is going to read your content.
More and more bloggers are becoming non-fiction authors now. BUT they don’t always create the best titles!
But if you want to have a high-ranking book or e-book on Amazon (or elsewhere), you need to have an awesome book title.
There are many ways you can create such a title.
There are also many tools you can use to do so.
In this article, we will look at the 5 ways for creating an awesome book or e-book title.
We will also look at which 4 tools you can use to do this.
But before looking at the steps of the title creation process and the tools you can use to create a book or e-book title, we will first look at the difference between books and e-books as well as the publishing pros and cons for each.
What’s the Difference between Books and E-books?
An e-book is an electronic book, usually a PDF (portable document format), that readers can access from either a computer screen, a tablet/iPad, or a mobile device.
A book is essentially the same thing, but is also made available in print. Printed books are typically longer than e-books, but not always.
With the advent of self-publishing and the creation of POD (Print On Demand) companies (such as CreateSpace), anyone can now become a legitimate author.
Most people use Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) to publish e-books.
In the words of Pat Flynn (from his e-book), “Kindle has become a prominent force in the publishing world, and can now provide the same amount of authority as you’d get with a print book.”
However, there are pros and cons to creating and publishing both e-books and print books.
