    What's up guys, Im in high school at the moment, and I would like to be able to afford college and have not debt left over when Im done. So Im writing an ebook. I am writing this on a topic I know a lot about through personal experience (Im not telling you so dont bother asking.). Anyway, this journey is more for me, but Im keeping you guys updated on here in case your interested too. Ill be posting my goals everyday and updating you on if I completed them.
    Thanks for looking!
    Goals for today:

    Make a cover for the book
    Start the website
    Get the paypal buttons

    Goals for tomorrow:
    Do research on kindle store and other ebook stores
    Finish the website

    Creating your own website and and marketing your book yourself will probably grant you more profit per sale, but why not use an outlet like Amazon KDP where there are already millions of users on it everyday? This is primarily the reason I sell on Ebay because the traffic is already there. Just an idea OP.

    Good luck.

    Hi, I think In going to sell it on both my website and on the kindle store, that way it is easier to advertise because I can use my own site.

    Just figured I'd post an update. I have achieved all of my goals yesterday, and I am on track to do the same with my goals today.

    writing an ebook to give away for free right now, it's pretty fun.

    Thanks. Im already enjoying it, its just right now I have a lot of extra time on my hands, and I would rather do this than get a part time job like a lot of my friends.
