Customer Reviews

Excellent!

Excellent work! Thank you!!!

Awesome Primer for ebook publishing!

My best friend sent me this ebook when I told him I was going to start selling my stories. I have big plans, but he told me to read this book and only call him back when I was done.

Now, that I am done reading this book, the process and the realities of success for ebook publishing have been formed with a ground-level yet positive outlook. All of the secrets in this book help put into perspective the expectations you should have. At the same time, it's gives you a good indicator of the future for epublishing.

With that future, I highly suggest and encourage you, me, we, all authors continue the hard writing work we do and put it out into the world and success - whatever it is to you - can be achieved!

Thanks Mark Coker!
