Testimonials

How to Ebooks has helped many authors already, via the online courses and ebooks. Read some of the reviews from around the web.

  • Bravo well done Awesome course. Got me up to speed using Sigil and other tools. Lots of golden information nuggets on tools, websites making your job so much easier. Brief quizzes scattered throughout the course kept you staying focused so knowledge stayed in your head. Sabrina knows what she's talking about and easily relays it to you with her easy to listen voice. My focus was on Amazon Kindle but had my eyes opened wide about the other players and how to get ebooks uploaded to their online stores.

  • Provides eBook Construction Other Courses Skim Over Sabrina comes to life when she starts Sigil portion (lecture 9). The first 8 lectures suffer from poor sound. Her voice is crystal clear, but the volume is so low you have to strain to hear. If you build your own eBooks there are plenty of helpful tips. [UPDATE] Sabrina should be commended on her rapid response to my review in regards to the sound problem. Shortly after posting my comment she sent me a message that she had increased the volume on all of the lectures. In addition she promptly responded to several questions I had Kindle marketing. She's a solid five star in my book.

  • Great course! This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thank you!

    - Lulian, Udemy student
  • Great resource for novices A lot of other books I've seen require a certain level of understanding of the industry and the publishing process as a prerequisite. This course starts from the beginning, including the differences between different marketplaces, all the way through a tutorial on creating and distributing the final product. Great for beginners or those looking for an update on the new players in the e-book industry.

    - Garret, Udemy student
  • Everything about ebook design This course was very in-depth covering everything a person would need to know about ebook design. I've been an ebook author for a while and usually rely on others to do the formatting for me. This course is great for anyone looking to do it themselves and make their ebooks look exceptional.
