More About the Author

Hey, thanks for visiting my page.

I'm Steve Weber, publisher of, where I post a daily list of five-star Kindle books offered free that day. I also have a book called "Kindle Buffet" (Guess what? It's free!). It's one of my several nonfiction tomes about bookselling and collecting, publishing, authorship, book marketing, and social media. You can check out all of my books right here on this page.

I'm from Charleston, West Virginia, and currently live in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.

In college I studied Journalism -- BS, 1987, West Virginia University (Let's Goooo, Mountaineers!) I was pretty green back then, and I figured a career in newspapers was just the ticket for a guy such as myself who enjoyed writing but had no ideas of his own.

After working several years as a reporter and editor, I started a home-based business selling used and collectible books online (mainly on Amazon). Five years later, I wrote my first book based on that experience: "The Home-Based Bookstore." It's a short book but it took me a long time to write it. I'd never written anything longer than 25 paragraphs or so, and had never used an outline since grade school. I still don't know how to use one. Maybe that's why it takes me so long to write, and all my books read like an upside-down pyramid ;-)

Recently I've been fascinated with publishing my books on the Kindle, and all the other great books available. I'm especially keen on checking out each day's free Kindle books, of course. They're irresistable, like candy or free beer. Or, as one Kindle Buffet reader put it, "They're like potato chips. Nobody can download just one."

I started Kindle Buffet in the summer of 2012, and it draws on my experiences in book-picking, interviewing, writing and publishing. I feel like I have a knack for recognizing what other people might want to read, and talking them into doing it. I figured it would take just 20 minutes a day to update the site and, for a while, it did. Just as with everything else I do, it ended up taking about 25 times longer than I'd figured. So these days I've got about 20 minutes left in my day after I've finished with Kindle Buffet.

A lot of people ask me how I manage to do it all. "Steve," they say, "how can you possibly read 60, 70, 80 books a day, seven days a week?"

My reply is always the same: "Doesn't everybody? I mean, c'mon, they're FREE! There's no excuse not to!"

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Publication Date January 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have purchased a number of Steve Weber's books and have found them very useful. What I don't like about this book is that it says it was published in July 2011 but it is obviously a much earlier edition. For example, when he talks about the royalty fee for publishing a Kindle book he never mentions the 70% option, but only the 35% option. The 70% option became available in June 2010. When talking about ebook readers he talks about the Sony ebook reader as the main competition to the Kindle. Obviously the Nook and the iPad are the main competitors in 2011. And so it goes. Books on technology related subjects will always become outdated quickly. That is why when I look to purchase such a book I am always very interested in the publication date to be sure I am not buying old news. Unfortunately, that is exactly the case with this book. It appears to me that the date was fudged in order to increase sales. Poor taste. I would not have bought this book if I knew it was a 2009 publication.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Information! September 29, 2009
By Penny
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This small book cuts to the chase on just about every aspect of ePublishing. Not just listing the ways to self publish, but how to go about it. There is a lot of helpful hints and tips in this book. I wish there was more on statistics like what types of ePublishing sells best or with self published pBooks. Still, it's a great book and one every writer should read and own.

5.0 out of 5 stars pBook of "ePublish" a slam dunk winner! June 23, 2009
If someone like me, who transfers his home videos onto VHS tapes and prefers to listen to audio cassette books in his car, can read this book and feel armed and ready to compete in the ePublishing world, then author Steve Weber's 2009 publication of ePUBLISH is a resounding success! Because I highlighted and dog-eared nearly every page half way through the book, I stopped because, afterall, what's the point? (Of course, I had the old school paperback version. What would you expect from someone who cannot let go of the childhood familiarity of VHS and audiocassettes?) Everything in Weber's book is noteworthy, and I can easily use it as a reference as I attempt to podcast, create book trailers, join www.Amazon.Com 's Affiliate Program, Twitter, seek Beta readers, Kindle, and embed a widget. Honestly, these are only a few of the steps Steve Weber has inspired me to take as I embark on my publishing career. He will do the same for you. Next on the top of my "books to be read" pile is a paperback of Weber's PLUG YOUR BOOK! Plug Your Book! Online Book Marketing for Authors, Book Publicity through Social Networking Someday, just maybe, Weber might even inspire me to read an eBook, but then what would I do when I feel compelled to highlight and dog ear?

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best book out there on publishing ebooks February 14, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really surprised by this little book. When I first got it, I thought "Wow, it's so small." But after I read the book over the next two days, I was saying "Wow, it's so packed with useful information!" This little book is BIG in information. This purchase was one of my best on Amazon to date. The author is so generous with the information he gives you about all the ins and outs of getting your published in a variety of online mediums like via the Kindle, print on demand, iPods, etc. It's easy to read and all of the information is useful. I give this one a double thumbs up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ripoff! October 18, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With all the good reviews this book received, I was excited to order and read it. What a huge disappointment! There are 110 "numbered pages."Of these, 4 are the index, 2 are the TOC, 2 are the copyright info, 7 pages are totally blank, 12 pages are at least half filled with pictures, most of which do not add any value to the content of the book. For example, do you really care to see a picture of an editor (a person not a tool), or a full page of what the Amazon Kindle looks like? Hello - you see the Kindle every time you sign on to Amazon! The remaining 79 or so pages are all large font with a lot of white space in-between. What this all boils down to is extremely limited content. The book is way over priced and I was very disturbed by the obvious tactics the author used to try to make the book appear larger. There is no way I would want to apply any of his techniques. Do you really want your readers to think you are also a rip-off?

Save your money and buy a self-publishing book by a reputable author. TheWell-Fed Self-Publisher by Peter Bowerman is a good one.

I usually donate a book to the library if I don't want it anymore. This is the only time I have ever returned a book to Amazon - I did not even want to donate it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Self Publish Fast, Print on Demand January 6, 2011
I really like this book. So much great information -- to keep an aspiring digital writer/publisher thinking, planning and poised to launch. It's an eye-opener because it is well researched, and goes into a lot of detail. It covers different formatting options, marketing, fulfillment, selling. At 110 pages, it's the kind of book you can carry around, put in your purse, briefcase or backpack for quick reference, inspiration and to bounce off of for further research. It's a fun and easy read. And going over it again, with all my underlines and notes in the margin from past readings, I'm still enjoying it in 2011.

Steve Weber knows his way around Amazon, social networking, promoting his own books and blogging too. He's a good resource. He's also polite, accessible and helpful. I recommend his ezine/blogs, as well. One is about epublishing and the other about selling used books on Amazon. I'd like to read all his books, if they are as good as this one. And I'm sure they're well written and packed full of great information. Why? Because with his good marketing, reputation, and all I've seen, I would expect nothing less. It's great to see people like Steve Weber who go the extra mile and exceed expectations.
