Any tips on selling E-books?

Not the same old "Get Rich Quick" or "Be an Affiliate", but 20 or 30 "How To"
books on home improvement projects.

My husband is a pretty good writer with a million ideas and I know a little
HTML, but not enough to build our own site from scratch.

Maybe a hosted service that takes payment and delivers the E-Book or a do it
your self template? I've played with Joombla and OS Cart, but honestly don't
have a clue how to instantly make the book available to them.

Should it appear on the web site with a one-time link they can click?
Should it be E-mailed to the customer?

Any ideas are welcome!

There is no need to know HTML. What I recommend is to start a blog (get
your own domain, don't go with a blog service), let your husband regularly
write good tips on home improvement. If there are enough entries in your
blog, make also the e-book with those tips (maybe extended, and some
extra) available as e-book.

The most important thing is to get buyers. If you get a lot of traffic to
your site, and they like what they read, they might certainly be
interested in an e-book. Or maybe even in a hardcopy (Cafepress, etc.).
