One of the simplest ways to create a new book that’s most beneficial to you, your readers and other people is to compile a list of short essays and/or articles on a particular subject or area of interest.
Ask other people to contribute to the book by submitting their short essay or article. Give them credit and include their contact
information after their essay or article. For instance, you may include their website, email and/or phone number with their permission of course.
You want to ensure you sign an agreement with them giving you authorization (permission) to publish their essay/article, name, likeness and possible image/photograph. You may seek exclusivity, but if you’re not paying them you may seek some hybrid of this exclusivity clause.
You’ll also want to include some of your own short articles and/or essays on the particular subject or area of interest. Having written your own short essays or articles in the books gives you additional credibility and makes it easier for you to do speaking
engagements, where you may sell your book. As you become an in demand speaker you may position yourself to get paid to speak as well and this is just the tip of the iceberg of the various ways to generate revenue.
