I would like to let the world know about my e-books, but so far I come only to sites, where either you are searching hours around, reading their effort and what soever, but no entry for my e-book, or it is a pay service or a dead link!!!!
Is there not a simple directory for e-books? If none available, I will start one. - FREE!
If you really want to promote your book HARD, try a software (FREE) product named Softsubmit athttp://www.analogx.com.This FREE product allows you to your info once and will submit your e-book to 50+ freeware and software download sites on the Internet. I just tried it today. Maybe in a week or two my access logs will record a ton of extra traffic! Then again, maybe not.
I never knew that it was so hard to give a good product away for free <g>.
I downloaded and used it for the first time the day before I posted info on this board about it. The program appears to take of advantage of pre-existing agreements with the software site operators to take submission info by email.
Most of the ebook promo sites tell you to submit to software sites. I figure that this program allows me to get a big jump on the process.
Most of the important freeware/shareware sites are listed in this program. So, I then individually set which category my program (e-book) should listed in and pushed the button to mass mail them via the program!
I check my server logs nightly and as of yet, I don't have a single hit...yet. From my experience, it takes a while for site owners to update their sites. (Hint: Sunil - see my submission at ebook jungle) to list accepted submissions.
I remain confident that once I get my book listed, my viral ebook campaign will get a big boost!
PS Who knew that giving away a FREE quality ebook would be so hard?
PSS I am going to be using a freeware PAD generator to facilitate sending even more subs to software sites in the next few days. I'll keep you posted on my results.
Thank you for nice words about my page. It was created by one of my young fans in my country. I am not co capable in web designing by myself. By the way- I got the idea to prepare English version too. This web is related to fun-magazine (the only in Poland)http://www.dobryhumor.pl I write comedy teksts for them and I am a co-editor (I ma not sure this word is correct).
Thank you friends. My dream is to gather all ebooks links in one place:D I love books. Standard books are very expensive in Poland, so mayba this is solution for future (ebooks). I hope so.

Exactly friend. I do not want to depend on others only. I would like to create tool which will help people to do promotion for free. I really understand what is to start promotion with 'zero' in pocket. I believe it is possible to do good promotion of ebook for free. The portal I am co-editor after one year of working has over 10000 subscribers. The owner has spent maybe few hundred $ for it, and this machine grows and grows. I was witness of internet success without spending money. The main secret of it was - our ideas. This portal does not bring money for now because of legal-economy- no credit cards option etc in my country. But we do not care for it for now. We believe it works for future. People are happy- we are happy. Sometimes cash is not all in life. Of course- I love to earn cash like others too You have right. If you can do something yourself- do it yourself- do not pay for it untill you are really rich I love internet, cause many things in this virtual world depend on your efforts. There are many people who succeed doing things alone in their own home. And next thing. If you believe in something- you will always find a little time for it and will work for it.
I am inspired of history of mr Edison who over 3000 times failed during his work on bulb discovery. Very patient guy He just had idea...and worked...worked on it. What is the difference between you and Bill Gates (when he was not so rich of course)? Is he better than you? No. I believe everyone can succeed if have enough faith and patience. ok... let us talk about e-books not about philosophy.
