Selling Public Domain eBooks always gives rise to many questions. Just the other day I was asked this question:
Looking for suggestions on what you would suggest to re-write public domain ebooks.
I am looking to have a few Personal Development books re-written allowing me to have intellectual rights over them with my own forward to the ebook (thus giving me copyright over “this” specific ebook – I am not a lawyer, but I think this lingo is correct).
I would also like the ebook to have a good layout with links embedded as well as an e-cover.
This is the “easy” answer:
Glad you asked this question. I have the answers for you.
You are looking for someone who specializes in “re-writing” PLR or Resell Rights products. The work is the same – it’s just using Public Domain content instead of PLR. This is so smart. Using Public Domain has helped me grow my business (by leaps and bounds). I found that I don’t have to rewrite Public Domain content nearly as much as PLR – and still put my personal spin and stamp on the content.
One of the things I usually have to do is find images (pictures) that are more current than those available in the Public Domain content. I just have to cut and replace them. It makes everything look really new and updated.
And yes you have the lingo right!
“(thus giving me copyright over “this” specific ebook – I am not a lawyer, but I think this lingo is correct).”
If you have any questions at all about finding or using Public Domain content don’t hesitate to ask… They don’t call me “THAT Public Domain Diva” for nuthin’. LOL
