How To Create an eBook For Free (Step-by-Step Guide)

2023-02-22 19:03:44 00:07:21 [ • ] – Hey, it’s Aurelius. In this video, I’m going to walk you through how to create an e-book step-by-step and only using free tools and resources online. Here’s what I created in a matter of minutes. It’s called “Abundance Mindset.” And you can see there’s a title page, a cover page.

I’ve got a table of contents here, which can be clicked on. So, when you click on a specific chapter here, it goes straight there. We’ve got a preface to start with, and some dummy text, as well as chapters, images, page numbers on every page.

And this is the type of e-book that you can very well create in this tutorial. So, let’s get to it. All right, so the very tool you’ll need to create your e-book is, drum roll, none other than Google Docs. Now, not surprising, and it’s nothing game-changing or anything. That’s the whole point,

You want to get your e-book out there quickly and easily with less friction. And the best and most simplest way, in my opinion, is by using something like Google Docs or even Word. And what you’re going to wanna do is simply click on Blank. So, we’ll create a new document.

We’ll start by creating our cover page or our title page. Referring back to the e-book that I already created, you can see there’s a background, as well as the title. That’s what we wanna achieve. And in order to do that, we’ll start by creating or adding a new table.

So, we’ll go Insert, Table, enter your title. Don’t worry about formatting just yet. And what we’re going to do next is just expand that all the way down so it’s taking the entire page. Once done, what you’re going to wanna do is, basically, just format the title the way you want.

So, I’ll highlight it. I’m going to select Poppins, and we’ll select Semi Bold. And, of course, make it bigger, like a lot bigger. Now, with the title, we do want it right in the middle of the page. So, in order to do that,

Click anywhere on the table and then click on Table options. Then where it says Alignment, we wanna make sure that the cell vertical alignment is middle. And there we go. We do need to get rid of the border line right here. So again, on the right side, we’ll click on Colour,

Where it says Table border, we’ll select zero points. And there we go, it’s disappeared. The next step is to add a background of our choice. We’ll head to a website called Unsplash. Unsplash has got thousands of photos that you can freely use for personal or commercial purposes.

I’ve gone ahead and simply searched for landscape since that’s sort of relevant to the topic at hand. The one I downloaded or used before was this one right here. Once downloaded, go back to your document and what we’re going to do is simply insert an image, upload from computer, locate your photo.

So this is the one I selected, and I’ll click on Open. All right, once it’s inserted, click the image once and then click on Image options. That’ll bring up the right side options right here. Then what you want to do is click on In front of text under Text Wrapping,

And then go to Position and we want to go fix position on page and then we’ll drag it all the way to the top corner. And then we also want to enlarge the image all the way so that it takes up the entire page like so.

You can also kind of position where you want it, so somewhere here. Okay, now that’s inserted, what happened to the title? Well, what we need to do is make sure we then selected Behind text. The reason why is because I did try putting it behind text first but couldn’t really select that photo,

Which is why we went in front of text and then we moved it to the back. Now to make the title stand out, we’ll select it and then we will select the colour, and that’s simple. From this point forward, you can simply make it bigger,

You can shift it a bit, you can move it to the top a little. It’s up to you, but I’m happy with that. Moving on to the next step, which is adding all our chapter titles, including the table of contents, perhaps a preface that you want to add.

So what I’m going to do is put in table of contents. With any chapter titles that you do add, you wanna make sure that you actually use the styling of Heading 1. The reason why is because once we do add the table of contents, it will recognise and know what those headings are

Or those chapter titles are and then insert it under the table of contents. At this point, you can also select what font you want. I’ll just select Poppins just to go with the same font as the actual title. While I’m at it, I’ll also go ahead and update Heading 1 to match.

We can leave the table contents as is. Let’s skip to another page. So this is where we can start adding our chapters. This could be a preface, I’ll just format it later on. And then this will be the introduction, for instance. Once you’ve added your chapter titles,

It’s simply a matter of using that same styling as you did previously. So highlight it and then we’ll choose Heading 1 and do the same for the rest. What I’ll do is I’ll go back where it says Table of Contents and this is how you can insert your own table of contents.

Find a new space there, and then we’re gonna go Insert and then we are going to insert a table of contents. And there we go. There is a little mistake here that I made and that was this right here. We don’t wanna include the table of contents in the table of contents.

So what we’ll do is we will remove that styling. So just select Normal Text, but this time we’ll just make sure that we kind of use that same styling in terms of the fonts and the actual size, but it is normal text

So I won’t recognise it as part of the table of contents. That’s done. And what I’ll do now is just right click, I’ma update the table of contents, and there you have it. At this point, this is where you can go ahead and write your e-book

And add any content you want into the chapters. What I wanna show you now is how to add an image. Anywhere on your page where you actually want the image to appear, you can select it. So I’m gonna click right here, and then I’ll go insert image.

And again, I simply went to Unsplash and found something relevant. I’m going to select this one right here and open. Now it’s not positioned correctly so what I want to do is click once and then I want to make sure that the text wraps around the actual image.

So under text wrapping, I’ll select Wrap text and there you go. We can also adjust the margins to increase it. You’ll see at the top or the bottom, left and right, but that looks pretty good there and you can also drag where you want it. It wraps all around.

And as a side note, the steps that I’m outlining in this tutorial isn’t for an Amazon KDP like e-book. If you want that, go to this page where it shows you the formatting guidelines and it shows you how to format the chapter titles. And then there’s actual dimensions and indentions you can see

What you need to do in order to meet the criteria. So do check that out if that is your plan. Otherwise, the default size when you create a new document in Word or Google Docs will do. Next, what I wanna show you is how to add page numbers. It’s really simple.

All you need to do is click on Insert, and then where it says Page numbers, you’re given a few options here. You can also choose your own options. So More options, you can position in the header or the footer section or select footer down the bottom.

Do you wanna show it on the first page? In this case, because we’ve got a title/cover page, we wanna skip that so we don’t wanna show it on the first page, and we can start the page numbers starting at one. That is fine. And right there where it says footer,

You can see the page numbers. The rest of the steps is simply a matter of continuing your e-book, writing it, and then formatting it the way you want. Once you’re ready to save it, all you need to do is click on File. Usually when you are going to share or sell your e-book,

You wanna save it as a PDF document. So we’ll click on Download and then select PDF Document. And here’s the e-book, ready to go. Whether you wanna sell or share it, it’s completely up to you. But if you are interested in selling your e-book, I do have another tutorial

On the different platforms that you can use to sell your e-book, so I’ll leave it up right here for you to watch next. Thanks for watching.

  1. I don't Understand why but my image on my 4th page doesnt want to stay on the 4th page, its always going back on the 3rd pages, I deleted the whole doc and tried again, but I run into the same issue, any clue on what's happening ?

  2. How would using tables for layout translate for eBooks? I've been using tables for centuries (I am that old 🙁 ) so I'm kinda used to that…Thank you AT!

  3. Aurelius,

    Although I have created some simple e-books in this way, your video shows how to do it much better. Thanks!

    Question: At the end you talked about downloading as a PDF. Why not download it as an EPUB, which simulates to some degree the effect of turning pages of a book?

  4. BRO!….thank you a ton! Just wrapped up my first (sort of) eBook and was struggling with the formatting in Google Docs. Like all of your tutorials, you made it sooooo easy to follow. Much appreciate you sharing! Thanks!

  5. When you have done all of this and it is saved, how do you view it as a book on a tablet? None of these video show this last step to go from formatted document to reading it on a screen????

  6. Im only having issues with the part of filling the contents afterwards. I mean, the page numbers do not change in the table of contents page. when i try to update, it fills it with what ive written. I would be grateful if you could help please

  7. I have a question. I have been using Pixbay to get images. They also say they are free to use for personal or commercial use, BUT can not be used to sell products. Seems like a contradiction. Not sure if Umslash is like that too. Free to use (personal or commercial) but not for purposes of selling. Do not want to get sued by creators of images for using their images to sell my eBooks. Copyright viollation/infrringement, etc. What have you found out on this front with Unsplash? Thank you. Craig

  8. This was incredibly helpful! I was looking at paying someone to do this (I will not even tell you how much…grrrr). It was rather simple, and your video helped get me "unstuck" as I was holding off for a year on this project.

  9. Hey dear i'm from sri lanka and i love your video so much.. It is very clear to learn.. ❤ And dear i like to know how to create a cartoon book with cartoon images.. if you can get a video about it please ❤❤
