Free-eBooks.net Celebrates Half a Million Facebook Fans!

Free-eBooks.net now has over 500,000 Facebook fans! Thank you to everyone from around the world that’s joined us in making this such a fantastic community. Just to put that into perspective, half a million people is at least 100,000 more than the whole city of Liverpool, England – home of the Beatles! According to the Guinness Book of World Records the most fireworks ever used at once was also 500,000, during an event in Dubai, and when we found out we hit the half a million mark believe me, we felt like celebrating with that kind of fireworks

File formats – what are they really?

So, you’re ready to write your novel; or you’ve already written it and are about to upload to a website (like Free-eBooks.net) for publication.

My mum always brought us children’s books. That is where I learnt many nursery rhymes and read

Irreverence in Writing

I am a fan of irreverent literature. I like when writers push the envelope because it forces me to confront my own inhibitions and perspectives and causes me to question their validity within the context of someone else’s perspective. I am a firm believer in defining your world in an ever-changing, ever-growing process based on the information that is available to us. As a result, my world-view is always changing.

Consequently, any discussion that arises as a result of such an obscure writing style can bring even more angles and perspectives into play which widens the process and
