People are writing eBooks all of the time because they need to make extra money, but you need to make money too. You have dreams that you want to fulfill.
If you're looking for the fastest way to make money, create your own eBook site. You can sell other people's eBooks and get a commission for the sale. And you can set the commission to whatever will benefit you the most.
Basically, you're going to contact eBook authors and say, "Hey, I have this website where I'm going to sell eBooks. I was wondering if you would like yours to be listed. You will make a profit, but I'll get a commission for the sale."
No one is going to be against having their eBook listed somewhere else so that they can get more exposure. With you marketing the site, you are increasing their chances of making more money off of their eBook. You are also increasing your own income potential. In other words, everyone is benefiting here.
So go ahead and give it a try. All you have to do is purchase a domain name, build yourself a website with a shopping cart system, and market it to death. You want to make downloading eBooks easy for those buying them so that they will come back again and again.
This is technically like having your own online bookstore, so if you've ever had a dream about having an online bookstore, you can definitely have exactly that. As long as you market consistently, you shouldn't have any problem finding some regular customers.
