How can I create a PDF file for free?

So you're ready to write and sell your eBook. You've got the idea. You've got the information. You've got the time. What you don't got is the money! So how can you do this? Can you make an eBook for free? Or at least for very little money? The good news is yes, you can write an eBook and publish it for free. In this article I'm going to explain how. However, when it comes to actually publishing your article you may want to spend some money. I'll explain why at the end of this article. 1. Writing Your EBook Writing your eBook can cost you a lot of money. You could, in fact, get someone else to write it for you. Ghostwriting has its advantages but it is the most expensive way to make an eBook. On the other hand you could write your eBook using a free word processor such as OpenOffice Writer. This free package includes many office productivity tools such as a presentation tool, a spreadsheet calculator and a word processor. The word processor is very powerful and quite capable of doing everything MS Word is capable of. 2. Editing Your EBook Editing your eBook can get expensive. However, by combining automated tools such a spell checker and grammar checker with friends it is possible to eliminate the cost of editing eBooks. Friends, co-workers and family members are all good sources of free editing. Just remember to use people who speak the language fluently. 3. Formatting Your EBook. Once you've written your book you still need to publish it. Typically part of that process is to convert your eBook from a manuscript to the final format. If you were to use a publisher t would handle this step for you. But since we're presuming you are going to self-publish for free that's not an option. The good news is that you can use OpenOffice Writer to format your eBook. That's right you don't need any fancy and expensive software such as Create Fillable Form . OpenOffice can generate the PDF for you. Of course, you could always use a separate tool such as PDFCreator. However, the built in PDF export is quite useable. 4. Creating a Cover You usually don't think about a cover when writing an eBook. However, even eBooks need covers. T need covers to convince the reader that the book is legitimate. Now you could hire a designer. But that's going to cost you money. One alternative is to use cover designing software. But again that usually costs money. Although there are some free alternatives. Some of these even produce covers in the form of the appropriate type of product. However, you can also use a free graphics program such as Scribus, Smoothdraw or Insightpoint. Or you could simply use OpenOffice Writer and Draw to create your own cover. 5. Publishing Your eBook. Publishing your eBook is the one area that you probably want to think twice about when it comes to doing for free. Yes, you can do it for free using your own website. You can even use ClickBank or use a service such as WordPress to create a website for free. Unfortunately, that means that you won't be able to sell through booksellers like Amazon or Barnes & Noble. To do that you need to use a service such as Createspace which is Amazon's self-publisher. Or a service such as Lulu. Unfortunately, these services all charge money to list and market your eBook. But it might be worth it!

Create PDF: All You Need to Know

You could get a great deal from Lulu if you use a link in your e-book. You could get a good price through CreateS pace if you use a link in your e-book. Also, if you use one of the more professional e-book formatting programs such as Adobe Digital Editions or Authored it will work for you. 6. Putting Your Book on Amazon. Amazon is an online bookstore that sells e-books. If you want to sell your e-book directly through Amazon you have to link it to a paid product. However, by linking your title to a paid product you can get additional promotion on Amazon and increase your potential sales. So before you even think about doing for free you should take the time to do your research. 7. Conclusion You should now have a better understanding of how to write an e-book for free.
