More About the Author
I'm Steve Weber, publisher of KindleBuffet.com, 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!"

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!
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.

The only reason why I give this book 3 stars is because it is pretty much outdated. Technology just changes so much that a book of this caliber needs to be revised constantly.Published on July 4, 2013 by Abby Campbell
