How To Write A Book - Three Simple Steps to Write a Book About Anything Before you can sit down to write a book, you have to know what you're going to write about. Believe me, many people sit down to write a book and then end up staring at a blank computer screen or notebook. Here are three simple steps to help you get started writing a book about anything. Step # 1 Identify a niche. Find a group of people that are in need of specific information. It can be anything really. You can write a book on how to feed your boa constrictor an organic diet or you can write a book on how to lose 30 pounds eating only ice cream and cake. Actually - please write that book! The ideas and options are endless. Find a niche that is seeking information and write a book for them. You might be wondering, how to find your niche.

Book selling is as much about solving a problem and providing a benefit as it is about writing. Your book has to provide a benefit to your reader. It has to solve a problem. Continuing with the living longer topic that in and of itself is a problem. People don't want to die and living longer is generally an appealing concept. But you can take it a step further. What other problems or concerns might people in this niche have? Maybe they want to live longer but they don't want to change their diet or lifestyle too much. Maybe they want to live longer but they want to be strong and vibrant in their last years not just alive. Now you've identified two potential problems for your target niche, use your book to solve them. Write a book about How to live longer without sacrificing your current quality of life or How to live longer, stronger and better starting today. Step # 3 Write your title and sales page. Once you have a topic and a niche chosen, your next step is to write your book's title and sales page. Why? Because once you have taken the steps to identify exactly what your book is about, writing it will become easy. Your title should be compelling and it should state the benefit to reading your book.
