New writers who do not have a publisher or a literary agent will typically publish their own book.

Less cost to create than a print book, the eBook can allow you to publish your works in a downloadable format. This can get your work seen and noticed far more quickly.

Fiction & Nonfiction eBook Titles – 4 Steps to Successful Titles
A great book title is one that connects instantly and lingers in the mind for a long time. It should make the reader curious and want to know more about what's inside.
In short, a good title is as significant as a great cover. And to aid with your titles, here are 4 strategies that can help you coin a great title.
1. A non-fiction book title must hold a promise to the reader. It must tell the reader what to expect in the book and how his knowledge will be enriched or how the book can help him. For example:
A Brief History of Time (straightforward);
On the Origin of Species (helping the reader understand where he comes from);
The Language Instinct (interesting: argues in favor of language instincts in humans); and,
Fit To Fat (self-explanatory),
These are examples of great non-fiction titles. A fiction title must create intrigue and an aura of suspense – for example:
The Bourne Identity (it puzzles);
Catch-22 (it makes the reader curious); and,
Neurancer (it takes the reader to a mystic land)
These are examples of great fiction book titles.
2. The title must assure the reader of a good, solid, meaty read.
3. The title must be relevant to the content. The reader makes an impression about the content based on the title and the book cover – and in no way must the content shake the reader's beliefs. If it does, it will invite bad press.
4. Biographies, autobiographies and stories of great people must carry their photographs or illustrations on the cover. Their titles must be inspiring though. The reader must desire to possess the same level of motivation, passion, energy, and greatness as that of the person written about.
These 4 strategies should help you craft a qualifying title. The book sales, however, will depend on how valuable or entertaining the content is, and how well it is written. Good luck!
