๐Ÿ˜  Haters

โ€œThere isn’t a lot of money to be made with ebooks.โ€
Many authors write books because they want to tell a story, feel fulfilled, build a legacy and more. If you want to make money, it can be wise to choose another business model.

โ€œSome of the ebooks you shared have print versions.โ€
While this is true, a lot of strategies we shared work for ebooks and physical books.

โ€œEbooks are prone to piracy.โ€
This is true for all digital products.
