5 Ways for Creating an Awesome Book Title (+ Which Tools to Use)

 

How to Write an Awesome Book Title (+ which tools to use to do this

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.

A Blind Man’s Journey to Publishing a Print Book

Leading you out of the Darkness Book Cover

Today The Blind Blogger shares how he overcame the struggles he had with making his book available in print to the world.

Please welcome Maxwell Ivey to center stage as he shares his story of how he became an independently published author in 2015.

It’s quite inspirational, and leads me to wonder why more people aren’t becoming authors nowadays!

The Writing Journey Ends – or Begins?

Imagine this scenario:

You have written your first book. You have fought through writer’s block, endured many sleepless nights, overlooked the criticism of friends and family, and overcome questions about whether or not you are good enough or have a story worth telling. Now you are asking yourself, “What do I do next?”

I was at that place a few months ago. I had responded to a challenge from a friend to create an online product, and started a book, Leading You Out of the Darkness Into the Light: A Blind Man’s Inspirational Guide to Success.

We’ve all heard how selling our own e-books, and audio or video courses on our websites can be great for our businesses, right? So, in addition to this challenge providing a chance to share my story, I saw it as an opportunity to bring in some much-needed income. Oh, and maybe become famous! (“wink wink”)

After I finished the e-book, the question remained: What do I do next? I knew I had to edit it, but I wanted to publish it, too. Read More

When Do Bloggers Go On Vacation? I Need One! Do You?

Proof of 6 scheduled posts!

Today’s true tale addresses the question: When do bloggers go on vacation? This is a great question, and one I attempted to answer one day, after having six posts scheduled, which is like having three weeks off, I suppose, considering I post twice a week.

I’ll admit that I started writing this post a while ago. I didn’t finish it until a couple of days ago, though. Read More
