Most of the eBook use the PDF format but there are also other formats that can be used without many problems while producing the same results. The individual would have to ensure the electronic format used is compatible otherwise the information would not be able to be accessed easily therefore defeating the purpose of the posting. The process of successfully churning out an eBook is not very difficult and with a little bit of knowledge and research one should be able to come up with a presentable piece worth posting. For the more experienced and serious eBook authors this is a very lucrative revenue earning platform. The following are some tips on how to get started: Ensure one has a word processor that saves information in PDF formats. Google Docs which is free, Microsoft Word which is not available for free and Open Office which is also free can get the job done adequately.
