"This is one great book, full of tons of even greater information. Too many books about self-publishing deliver hyped information, which isn't really worth anything. "How I Sold 30,000 eBooks" delivers. It's a complete book! Without obvious sales pitching, which is so annoying, this author provides a vast amount of information from helpful websites, articles, to individual Amazon sites and much more. Best about the book is - it is realistic and honest - in my language: "naked". The author shares his info and does not pretend, that promoting a book is a walk in the park. Authors have to work for it and he gives them the tools. Loved that because I hate scams." -- Amazon reviewer

  1. Hi Martin,

    That is just great, wish I could buy that book, but explain, why my website had a million plus views and no sales....according to Amazon account department, yet my book "Natural Ambiance" rank there was sales. Someone please answer this question or explain what is happening here.
