Book Review: How To Market and Sell Your eBook: Extras and Giveaway!


Ok, heres the normal drill....If you haven't read the other parts of this review, you can go read the Introduction, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

As if Sarah's Mae's book wasn't captivating enough....she had to go and include some extras that just push this eBook over the top! Seriously, this book is just crawling with tons and tons of helpful resources, links, and advice. (Well, not literally crawling....eww.) Sarah gives some enlightening statistics (in case I wasn't already convinced....which I was), answers more reader questions, and provides links to help with every single-wingle aspect of writing an eBook that you could possibly come up with. (I made that'd you like it?)

Here are just a couple examples of what you'll find in this section of the book:

"Women make up 66% of eBook power buyers" -- eBook stats

"To escape criticism -- do nothing, be nothing, say nothing." - Elbert Hubbard

"Does one make more money self-publishing or traditional publishing?"

...sorry my friend! You'll have to get the book to find out the answer!

Theres also a link called "What is a blog?" along with several other blogging links, and some helpful definitions...I finally know what "hyperlink" really means!! (Ha ha, just kidding....I knew what it meant...sorta....I mean, who doesn't know what hyperlink means? Really, I think I did know what it meant....)

Hopefully that gives you a taste of all the extremely helpful and enlightening material this book has made available to us. Sarah Mae has really outdone herself in providing this book so affordably. She makes it way easier for us newbies in the self-publishing world to dare to get our feet wet! Personally, this book has challenged me to start thinking in the direction of publishing an eBook....don't worry, when I do get it done, you'll be the first to know!

Sarah Mae has graciously made a copy of this book available to one of my lucky readers! Thats right, I am officially hosting my first...
