Homepreneurs believes that eBooks are a great way for writers of all genres, abilities, and interests to make additional money while pursuing personal goals from home. While becoming a best-selling author via eBooks is unusual, it is not impossible. And if best-selling is not ones goal, writing and publishing eBooks is one way to earn extra money on the side from the comforts of home. eBooks continue to sell at a remarkable rate: For 2012, SmashWords added 190,500 books to its library and 98,000 new titles were added to the Smashwords catalog. This is up from 92,500 at the end of 2011, and up from 28,800 at the end of 2010, 6,000 in 2009, and 140 our first year in 2008. This remarkable growth rate is expected to continue well into the future.
