Low content books may be a bit of a puzzle to the majority of the authors who read our blog, after all, an author writes thousands of words because they have passional for either story telling or passing on knowledge to help others, so creating a book which doesn’t fulfill these criteria may not be on the average author’s radar.
So, what is a low content book?
As you may well imagine (and as the name suggests), it’s a book which has minimal or even zero content within it. But wait, that’s just a note pad, right? Well, it could be.
Low content books range from notebooks to journals and planners, to coloring books and scrap books, essentially any book where the reader/buyer has to fill in the pages within it.
There are plenty of options for you to choose from, if you want to publish a low content book, here are fifteen ideas of different types of book you can create:
But there are of course other low content books, and if you reflect on your own day to day life, I’m sure you can think of something which would transfer well into this category, maybe something for your work or to use around the house?
What you will find for most low content books, is that they are given as gifts to other people, so it is important that the book looks appealing (so, don’t skimp on the book cover and interior).
Make sure you do your research, if you are creating a journal for example, do your pages have enough room to easily write upon, are the lines spaced out far enough, is publishing in hardback a better idea than paperback (and for a journal it probably is). Look at other journals and see what works and what doesn’t, you can create a great journal which people will love, if you research beforehand.
Also, order a copy of your book prior to launching fully, it’s not until you actually get a really printed version of the book that you can see if it works as something to write in, if it does, great, if not, adjust and re-upload. In an era where everyone goes by online ratings, you want to ensure your book is well received from the very beginning.
There are opportunities with low content books, but you really have to do your research first, chose an area which interests you and again research it before you start to create. You really need to make sure your cover and interior look appealing and of course, get a test copy before you do a full launch with your new book.
