Writing a Book

I was thinking about writing a book to make some additional money and I wanted to identify a topic that would sell. Any suggestions on how I find such a topic?

Re: Writing a Book

One of the things you can do is go on Amazon and look at the category you are considering writing about and see what books are already in that space. Also look at their sales ranking and how many editions of the book that is closest to what you want to write about. If most of the books in that category are first editions and the ranking is not high you may want to consider another category.

Re: Writing a Book

I think you may want to consider looking at it in another way. Rather than trying to find a topic that may sell you should consider focusing on a topic that you are passionate about or you are an expert in. Part of the challenge in selling a book is the credibility and the experience of the author. If you have no experience in the topic you are writing about you may have some challenges selling your book.

Re: Writing a Book

I agree with the other comments mentioned here as well particularly the comment about being passionate about what you are writing about. One of the things you should consider is doing a keyword search for the book topic you are looking for. Not only will you get some ideas on what people are searching for but you could also come up with a title that could show up high in the search rankings.

Re: Writing a Book

Writing a book isn't an easy task.It needs lot of hardwork and homework. Writing a book is a skill altogether.With retrospect,the current trend is to write books on "tools of the trade".You can try your hand at writing on the tools required to be a successful businessman,entrepreneur or some tips on marketing,etc.This not only fetches you additional money,it also provides inputs to yourself.

Best of luck.

Re: Writing a Book

You can write an autobiography or you can write on human psychology. You can find the topics from the latest news by reading newspapers and magazines.

Re: Writing a Book

Thanks for asking your question,

At the moment I actually have a tiny little ebook that people can buy online, I actually also already had some actual buyers
that where not family 🙂 I also already got some Readers Feedback from readers by email, people can also preview this
little ebook on my blog(s) and also on my blog(s) I hope to be able to possibly collect some more Readers Feedback, and
possibly - Based on this Feedback - possibly (when there is a demand for it) create an 'Upgraded' version.

You should write about whatever moves you and occupies you at the moment 🙂
