Paul, Thank you so much for this valuable content, you have just saved me a LOT of time and made the consideration of producing an eBook a lot more doable. I keep thinking I must start work on an eBook and have had thoughts about Amazon, but didn’t really believe it would be possible or that I would run into too many issues. Hearing this from someone who has been through the process is so valuable….now to decide what would be of value to my audience. Thinking time 🙂
The PRO version of this very good torrent client for Mac OS X allows you to easily find the torrent content directly in the app. Browsing multiple torrent trackers won’t be something you need to worry about with the Pro version. Simply input your search words in Folx, and it will go search all the torrent trackers, displaying only the relevant ones for you to download.
Very few torrenting sites survive the storm brought about by copyright infringement authorities, and The Pirate Bay (aka TPB) is one of them. In spite of being closed down multiple times, the site still continues to operate in full swing. You’ll find a massive range of e-Books in its database, ranging across a wide array of genres such as contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, non-fiction, travel guides, etc. Note that in some regions TPB has been blocked so you can use a proxy site to get access to the content. Once you’re on the site, simply key in whichever e-Book you wish to download, and voila! You can look for The Pirate Bay proxy sites on this webpage.
One thing, though, I’m not sure how good their formatting service is and it doesn’t look like you can proof read your eBook on a reader device (I proof all my eBooks on my Kindle prior to sending them to BookBaby), so it’s kind of a shot in the dark if you don’t have a level of quality control there. I’ve seen people hire professional eBook programmers and due to a lack of quality control they ended up with a whole section of their book poorly formatted and nearly unreadable.

Unfortunately, the original Kickass Torrent site does not exist any longer but you can log onto its mirror site – katcr.co and get a similar experience. The site works the same way as TPB and is quite easy to use. Currently, it boasts of over 1,75,000 e-books that can be downloaded for free. In case you’re unable to find the book you’re looking for, you could post your request on their community forum. If their main site is not working, then you can try Kickass proxy sites.
Hi – thanks for this post. I knew about having to have the right format for an ebook to be on Kindle and Amazon. Those distribution centers are a bit way off for me right now. But – what I want to do is to offer a short ebook in a PDF on my blog/Facebook page etc – to encourage people to sign up for my blog and to like me on Facebook. How professional does a free ebook have to be? Can I just hire an editor to help me with the layout for that?

Launched in 2013 as an upgraded and rebranded version of PubIt!, NOOK Press offers a free, simple interface that makes it easy for authors to convert, upload and edit their work. Nook offers two royalty levels based on list price: With a list price between $2.99 and $9.99 royalties are 65%. With a list price below $2.98 or greater than $10.00 (but not more than $199.99 and not less than $0.99) royalties are just 40% which is just a bit higher than Amazon’s 35% for the same price range. There are no deductions for delivery fees. Nook Press offers “Live Chat” support services as well as a collaborative social networking option (similar to Wattpad or Scribd) that allows authors to work together and comment on or edit one another’s work.
Most of the popular public torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay, Torrentz2, IsoHunt, etc. are having mixed content such as movies, music, software, games and eBooks. However, there are private torrent sites such as Bibliotik, MyAnonamouse.net, Ebook Shares, etc., which have mostly e-books. Also, if you are new to torrents, then you should have a torrent client such as qBittorrent, uTorrent, Deluge, etc.
One of the best sites to download the ebook from a torrent, this is especially meant to support smooth downloads and its library includes thousands of books, covering genres like Fictions, Romance, Medicine & Health Science, Sports and various others.

Another point that deserves a special mention about this site is that it allows authors to promote their works.
Upload your book file. This is the mobi for Kindle or the ePub for other stores. If it works, the upload will be shown as successful. You may get a notification of errors or spelling mistakes. Just fix them and re-upload another file if you need to. Most indies upload new files periodically as we update the back matter and lists of other books inside each book.
Vintage Cookbooks includes in their collection of vintage cookbooks a collection of vintage cookbooks from the late 1800s to 1950s for children.
