My First eBook

Writing a book can be a daunting task, but it can also be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. As a first-time author(editor actually), I recently completed my first book and wanted to share my journey from idea to publication.

The idea for my book had been brewing in my mind for years, but it wasn't until I made a conscious effort to sit down and start writing that it began to take shape. First I thought to write a book on artificial intelligence using AI. But there are several books already available. So I postponed the topic. One day I was attending an online seminar on the eve of World Sleep Day. I got many insights to the topic and decided to write on that.

It was a public domain work. I used chatgpt to gather information. Then I gave it a shape of book using canva application. Once I had completed, I am not able to stay calm. I just started thinking where should I publish it. I have not taken any feedback from beta readers, family, and friends. First, I tried to publish it on Amazon Kindle. Then I tried to get a sponsor so that I can promote his products in the book. But, I was not able to wait. Somehow I want to test my book. So, I published it in gumroad. You can check it out from the link: .  However, you need a strong fanbase to grow your sales.

Submitting manuscript to multiple publishers and waiting for a response is a time consuming process. It may take several months of waiting. And you will get the delayed gratification. Working with the publisher is a collaborative process. You have to work together on editing, cover design, and marketing strategies. I handled the above processes alone. And found that marketing part is difficult for me.  

However, I will release this ebook on Amazon in April. It was an experience that allowed me to grow as a writer and as a person. This will help me to write my next book.

If you have an idea for a book, I encourage you to pursue it. Don't be afraid to take the leap and put your words out there for the world to see. The journey may not be easy, but it will be worth it in the end.
