Matthews previews the book’s content early with the following:

“I will only market my books in ways that are free or extremely cheap!

Guess what? The free stuff actually works better than the expensive stuff. Who knew?”

We learn from experience – either our own, or the experiences of others. We also learn from both good and bad experiences. Thank goodness! Though I’d love to learn from good experiences of my own, I’m most grateful to learn from the bad experiences of others. I’m quite happy to lea

As with several of the other book reviews I have published in genre of “E-book” creation, this is another superb resource and “must have” book for anyone looking to venture into the world of E-book creation.

Notwithstanding some formatting issues in the print version of this book, Jason Matthews has provided the aspiring E-book author with a treasure trove of links, resources and “how to” insights that will save you countless hours of sitting in front of your computer looking for information on t

How to Make, Market and Sell EBooks All for Free, by Jason Matthews, opened my eyes! I had looked upon making my own EBooks as an arduous task and have avoided it. Matthews's book provides a wealth of information and it's all spelled out in easy to understand language.

In How to Make, Market and Sell EBooks All for Free, Matthews walks you through each and every step and also provides innumerable links to sources to further your knowledge on any given topic. Especially useful is that all the tech

If you have written a book and would like to publish it as an ebook, then this is a perfect handbook for you. You won't find any advice on writing your book here; that's not what this book is for. But you will find everything you need to know to publish your book, market your book, and sell your book. Mathews goes beyond just telling you to market your book on social media; he gives you step by step instruction on how and where to do it. And he provides the URLs of the sites he recommends. He al ...more

Matthews' book is a good reference guide as he actually walks readers through procedures on how to do certain things such as how to help make your book receive more exposure on search engines, etc. I found it a little more technical at some parts than I would have liked, but at least I know that if I decide to do some of the things he talks about for my next book, I can refer to some of his pointers. He uses his own experiences in explaining the methods he found for marketing his books. He goes ...more

This book is fantastic! I have read a fair bit on the topic and this author by far offers
the most value. The book is loaded with information and website links. In my opinion it should be selling for at least double the price. When reading through this book you feel as though you are being guided by a friend. Jason writes in such a warm style and shares a wealth of experience. He makes the task of publishing an ebook feel well within reach.

Before reading this book I had a fairly good idea on how

This is a great book if you want to get into the world of ebooks, especially those available on mobile readers like the Kindle. It covers a very broad spectrum of topics and I think that no matter what level you are with publishing your'll learn something from this title.

If you have never considered publishing then there is no better time and this book would be a really good guide to help you convert your work into revenue.

Even if you only plan to publish for fun, this book will help you shorte

I liked this book. It is not intimidating and after reading it, I managed to re-formate my first ebook by myself following the instructions and using all the resources and tools that this book gives away.
I although found a lot of tips to build up and improve my website and all for FREE. A very resourceful book for the indie writer who doesn't know where to start and want to selfpublish thei books. The best : you do not have to be a techie freak either!
The book is nicely written, steps and chapte

This is a must read book for any author BEFORE they write their book, DURING, and AFTER. Jason puts so much valuable information inside of this book and the beauty of it is that it's all free. He discusses such things as book conversions for epub, mobi, pdf, how to make the most of social media (including introducing you to some you may never have heard of), where to get free stock photos, free websites, and a host of other FREE information, with the appropriate links. This book is priceless and ...more

This book is a great resource that walks you step by step through the process of turning a manuscript into an independently published eBook. From website development to cover design to sales, this little book contains a vast amount of resources. And the best of all is that the author demonstrates that all of this can be done for little to no cost. What may begin as a daunting task can become a reality for anyone desiring to be a self-published author by following the steps set forth in this book ...more

I was a little worried upon entering the self publishing world that I would end up spending more money than I could ever possibly make. However, Matthews spells it out one letter at a time, all the while proving you don't have to spend a dime. I purchased this book in addition to other self publishing guides and found it very helpful. Making an Ebook is not as easy as typing a word document and hitting "send" to the world. You need to know the basics. Matthew defines just that without skipping a ...more

Some books are very hard for me to read and I rarely read them twice, but I have read this book three times and plan to read it a few more times, it has so much information that I can't get it all down and remember it between all things that go on in everyday life.

Okay, lets get serious now. The book is very good and I have read a few others that try to write a book like it with their own twist, I'm lucky to finish the first chapter let alone read the whole book. So if you plan on doing as the t

This book is worth its weight in gold. Even if I had known to look for various things such as free web hosting, I wouldn't have been able to find all the sites that offer it so easily and quickly as I can by just looking them up in the book. Plus, there are a ton of reviews; for example, how much space each web host offers, as well as if there are any forced ads, how easy each is to use, if they can use Google AdSense, and how much it costs to get a pure dot com. ...more

Some people say we all have a book in our heads but how many of us actually make the book a reality? Very few.

Jason Matthews takes the complications out of writing an ebook. He takes you through the process of publishing and marketing your ebook in easy to follow steps.

If you have a burning desire to make your book a reality I highly recommend this book to get you started on the road to your goal.

Thank you Jason you certainly made me make the move.

As a new author, I found this book to be very helpful. It's packed with useful information and provides a comprehensive look at what it takes to market ebooks these days. Some of the suggestions and explanations will be easier to follow if you try them out on a computer as you read them. Still, Jason writes with an easy, conversational style that makes most of the book very user friendly. ...more
