Writing can just be a pastime or a hobby for you. Now, you can make that hobby useful in helping you make money on the internet through writing and selling of e-books. An e-book is a short term for “electronic book”. It is an electronic version of traditional printed books on papers that can be read using computers or an e-book reader.
