Writing a “101 Tips” or “101 Ideas for…” Book
This is possibly the easiest type of book you can write. Research consists of gleaning tip after tip from multiple sources, all focused on your one topic, which is determined by your Title and Subtitle.
In order to make your book especially potent, however, follow these tips:
Don’t just dump your tips into your eBook any old how: First, organize them into categories.
Then weed out the duplicates
Deliberately include three categories of tips (for your reference only: Your reader should just be aware of a strong, well-balanced mix)…
Make sure your tips are “presented” nicely in strong, short sentences. Don’t ramble. Don’t use “fluff’ words or unnecessary “filler” phrases that distract readers from your point
“If you want to try this little tip, you could always squeeze lemon juice on bits of apple to really prevent things like some discoloration” does not sound half as authoritative and definite as: “To stop apples turning brown, sprinkle cut slices with lemon juice.”
And, of course, never, EVER lift tips verbatim from other sources (including PLR). If you do quote other sources directly, be up front about it and credit every source in your Acknowledgements or Appendix… or even arrange your tips by source, using the source as a subhead. For example:
